    I have a similar problem. Simply the scavf100 active subwoofer slow burn fuse keeps blowing. I've disconnected everything, replaced the fuse, only plugged in th emains and switched on. 5 seconds later the fuse blows. I've cleaned the insides, checked the circuits, ensured that the mains isn't spiking. What next?

    Same problem - just bought an AVR F100 system and the subwoofer is not working as well as the dvd and minidisc! I have heard that the dvd and minidisc may be sorted with a diode change on the heatsink on the power supply but don't know how to fix the sub.

SOURCE: I have the SB-HW950 subwoofer

Yes, the old Panasonic SC-PT950 did drive the subwoofer by its own amp, such as it was.

It's never a good idea to adapt prescribed connectors to bare speaker wire or vice versa.

Speaker Level and Line Level signals are worlds apart and equipment damage may result. Your Denon (model unknown) probably requires a POWERED SUBWOOFER, to which it would provide Line Level LFE from its Pre Out.

Read the manual where it doesn't say to convert a speaker wire to RCA.

Denon s101 fault


From the Manual:
PROTECT indicator
This indicator lights red when the system
cable is not properly connected or the
protection circuit in the subwoofer (DSW-
S101) is activated

Protection light is activated since i installed extra speakers- nothing works now


What do you mean by extra speakers? If you hooked more than one speaker up to one output, you probably blew the amp.

Subwoofer does'nt link with sound bar


  1. The wireless link indicator lights red. Or alternates red and green.
    There is no link between this unit and the active subwoofer.
    Check that this unit is turned on.
    Ensure that the digital transmitter is fully inserted
    into the digital transmitter dock on this unit.

    Turn the active subwoofer off and then back on.
    Alternatively, turn the active subwoofer off, disconnect the AC power supply cord and then reconnect it.
    Consult your dealer if the problem persists.

Cant get my sub to work on my denon avr2808 and dont think it ever has it doesnt even work on the test signal


Hello
There are four possibilities that the subwoofer doesn't gives any aoutput. They are:


• Subwoofer's power not turned

on.


•The "Subwoofer" setting at

"Speaker configuration" is set to

"No".


•The subwoofer is not properly

connected.


•The subwoofer's volume is
turned off.
Go to its manual setupscreen, come to speaker setup, speaker confuguration, come towards Sub Woofer, select "Yes" and press OK.

How to connect the speakers to the sb-wa342 panasonic subwoofer


I hope I understand you correctly.

As you can probably tell from the very different connector types on the subwoofer and the HTS, they don't match up. That speaker system and this electronics are not meant to be used together.

The SC-BT200 uses passive subwoofer while the SB-WA342 is an active (powered) subwoofer.

My subwoofer is connected correctly (test mode it works fine). The Denon 589 receiver, however, when everything is set up and ready to go, doesnt seem to send any output to it, so there is no base sound. ...


What's the make and model of the subwoofer? It sounds like it's a passive (unpowered) speaker.

http://www.retrevo.com/support/Denon-AVR-589-Receivers-manual/id/23110dj893/t/2/

See page 9

I seriously doubt your test mode worked fine on the subwoofer level adjustmnent.

Get a powered (active) sub.

Just bought a denon, and wharfdale 9.1 speakers with no rca cables, what rca cables do i need?


What model speakers?

Didn't these things come with manuals?

Speaker connections from the Denon are typically through speaker cables (glorified lamp cord).

The Denon is not capable of driving the sub directly. The powered (?) subwoofer in your setup would presumably require an RCA cable (whatever length reaches) to feed its amplifier a bass signal from the Denon's Subwoofer Out.

Simple question?? how do I connect my Panasonic subwoofer to my denon receiver?


I have a very similar problem with the same exact Panasonic sub. I went to Best Buy and Radio Shack looking for an adapter, and they basically told me that one does not exisit. Apparently, Panasonic designed the home theater system specifcally so that it could not work if any part of the entire system was ever seperated.
