SOURCE: Yamaha YST-SW320 subwoofer won't play sound

I too have amplifier and speakers thatI rent for parties, and sometimes when I connect them they don't work and I battle with them for hours before I find the out that its just a little thing that happened, like speaker wire might have cut inside, or the wire conneted for the CD to Amplifier is bad and son on.

But I will advice that you test your amplifier and woofer, with another equipment independently to be sure if they still working well or not. As this will help you to know what to do next.

May somthing happened to one of them the last time you used it and you did not notice, and it might just need some servicing.

Best wishes

SOURCE: Have this Bose system connected to my Yamaha a/v receiver

If you have it literally conencted the way you say not much good will happen.

The speaker OUTPUTs for the Yamaha feed the INPUTS on the Acoustimass Module then the satellites branch out of the Acoustimass Module's OUTPUTs.

Acoustimass module
Bose® recommends putting your Acoustimass module at the same end of the room as the
television monitor. To prevent interference, keep the module at least 2 feet (.6 m) from the
television.
• You may hide the Acoustimass module behind or under furniture, but do not block the
opening. Be sure there is at least 2 inches (5 cm) between the opening and any surface.
• If the opening faces the wall it increases the bass; if it faces away it decreases the bass.
For the most bass response, place the opening 2 to 3 inches (5 to 8 cm) from a wall or
corner.
• Stand the Acoustimass module vertically or horizontally (Figure 6). To stand it on the
cable connection end, remove the cover by gently pulling it away

Move the sub closer to a wall or corner to increase the bass.

This is a SYSTEM and as such is not designed to be pieced out or separated. I don't recommend that you try it that way. I doubt it will improve the sound.

What wire do I plug in for the subwoofer cause I I have read cables but there's 2 and I only have 1 connection for the sub on the back of the stereo


This subwoofer is probably powered directly from the amplifier and doesn't have an internal amp. The connections are probably the same type as for any other speakers. And, there are probably additional connections for the rest of the speakers. The connection on your amp is likely an RCA phono plug connector that sends low level signals to a powered subwoofer. To connect a passive subwoofer, one without a built-in amp, the main speaker outputs connect to the subwoofer and are then sent to the regular speakers connected to additional terminals on the subwoofer. You may need an owner's manual for the subwoofer to determine how it should be connected.

I have a jvc sp-pw50 Subwoofer and i want to know if you can buy an adapter for the input so i can hook it up to my kenwood amp? my amp does have a regular audio jack


That would require you to disassemble the subwoofer cabinet and disconnect the the supplied amplifier.
Connecting this unit to a different amplifier would provide no benefit to you unless the on-board amplifier became damaged.

Good afternoon, I recently bought a SA VE325 speaker set it contained a subwoofer, 4 little boxes and a mid-large box which you haeb have tpo piuyt above uyour tv. Now the problem is we have no cCENTER to...



Hello there looking at the manual i would assume that the mid-large box is actually your centre speaker.

Did you mean that there are no connections left on the back of your amplifier? For a centre speaker this system uses all passive speakers apart from the subwoofer which has a built in amplifier for just the subwoofer, your hifi or home cinema amplifier would need to have at least 5 separate channels to operate the centre speaker as well as the front and rear speakers.

Ideally you would need a 5.1 channel or 5 channel amplifier with subwoofer pre output, any would do but to make things simple one with a digital optical or coaxial input would be best as this can easily carry multi-channel audio with just one connector.

The other alternative if your amplifier does not have a centre speaker output are:



· to get another basic mono stereo amplifier to power the centre speaker on its own however if your main amplifier does not have a pre out connector for a centre speaker you will have to change the volume independently on both amplifiers

Hi i" ve bought on


This may help. If it's not the exact model you have it will at least get you started as subwoofers are pretty much teh same for connection and operation.

Unable to receive optimum output. The bass is totally flat !


Hi, ok the Bose Acoustimass III system consists of two small cube speakers and one subwoofer unit called the Acoustimass bass module. If the subwoofer stops working, three points can be the cause of the failure. The Bose Acoustimass III is a passive system, meaning the speakers do not power themselves, but instead are connected to a receiver or amplifier. Thus, the amplifier, the speaker between the amplifier and the subwoofer, or the subwoofer itself could be the issue.

Things You'll Need:

* Amplifier
* Speaker cable
* Extra subwoofer


Instructions


Disconnect the speaker cable from the back of the Bose Accoustimass bass module and connect it to a subwoofer that is known to be working. If the subwoofer works, the bass module needs to be replaced.


Disconnect the speaker cable from the back of the receiver or amplifier you are using and from the back of the subwoofer in Step 1.


Connect a speaker cable that is known to be working between the back of the receiver or amplifier and the back of the Accoustimass module. If the module starts working, then the cable was the issue.


Disconnect the speaker cable from Step 3 from the back of the amplifier or receiver, then connect the cable to the subwoofer port on the back of an amplifier or receiver that is known to be working. If the subwoofer works, the receiver was the issue. If the subwoofer still does not work, verify that the speaker cable is in the subwoofer port of the receiver/amplifier and that the cable is connected securely to the subwoofer.



If you think you did the connection properly,Fine... If not you can use the manual from the below link and know how to connect it properly..

Don't bother trying it with power again. Most likely the amplifier blew up. A hands-on tech could probably determine the extent of the damage and if it's economically repairable.

I had a Klipsch KSW12's amp die twice on two consecutive different units but outside of warranty on the second one, so I bit the bullet and just removed the amp from the speaker path and wired the drive directly to an external amp so it's not a total loss. Works fine. There really isn't a lot of magic going on in a powered subwoofer amplifier.

Most AV receivers do not have a built in amplifier block to drive a subwoofer, and merely provide the subwoofer output channel at line voltage. Thus, a powered subwoofer is required. Does the subwoofer require mains power? From your description, I'm guessing it doesn't. If not, it does not have a buit in amplifier, you will need to purchase a monoblock amplifier, which is just a mono amplifier with a volume control, no tone controls or anything else. Make sure that the amplifier power rating is as close as possible to the subwoofer power rating, as it is quite possible to blow a speaker by using an amplifier whose power output is too low, by overdriving the amplifier , and putting DC through the voice coil when the amplifier clips. If it does require mains power, it will have an amplifier built in, but does not have line level inputs.
