How do I hook up a powered subwoofer to a pioneer sx-316?

Many subwoofers accept both line level (RCA jacks) and amplified inputs (+ and - speaker terminals). The Pioneer SX-316 does not offer line level output, only amplified outputs via the PURPLE + and - speaker terminals. This means that in order to use any subwoofer with an SX-316, the sub woofer will need to accept a + and - speaker wire connections for input Your manual speaker connections are on page 11 of the manual which can be found here:

Starting at the rear of the SX-316; run a speaker wire from the PURPLE + and - terminal (SUBWOOFER) to the + and - speaker input terminals on the subwoofer. See your subwoofer manual or experiment (at your own risk) with connecting the speaker wire from the SX-316 to the subwoofer's + and - LEFT only, RIGHT only or BOTH left and right speaker inputs. Do not connect wires from the SX-316 to the speaker OUTPUT terminals of your subwoofer.

Finally, adjust any variable low pass filter knob or setting on the subwoofer to the lowest frequency that your main speakers are capable of producing. If you're not sure what that value is, try setting the subwoofer to 100Hz and judge how it blends with the main speakers. If it seems a little too bass heavy and thick then reduce the setting to 80Hz. On the other hand, if the sound seems to be slightly thin and lacking weight, try increasing the setting to 120Hz. By careful listening and a bit of patience you will be able to get the sound to seem balanced and well blended.

Good luck!

How to connect my phillip cd player to speakers

It depends on whether the player has an Audio output because only then you will be able to connect the output to a speaker .
However if there is only an audio output - composite signal- then you will need a power amplifier to connect the speakers while the CD player is coupled to the power amplifier.

My Luxman d-90 cd player (manufactured in 1988) doesn't have digital out therefore I can't use my DAC. I am looking for a schematic for this product better yet if there is someone out there who already did...


In regards to getting a digital output off your CD player there really is not any point in doing this. With standard CD quality you are not going to get any audio benefit from upconverting to a digital format with the player.

You would have to purchase a $50 to $100 Analog to Digital converter and then you are still limited by the audio output of the Luxman d-90 cd player.

So I would recommend that you just use your analog outputs. If you are wanting digital output for your CD player you would be better off buying a new CD Player that has digital output.

Also note unless you are wantling to play digital CDs that are in a DTS for Dolby format there is no need for digital output on a CD player.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

Pioneer SX-2300 powers up, but no sound.

Does the output relay click about 5 sec. after powering on? If it does check if the tape2/tape monitor is on. Check speakers and wiring. Try headphones.

There aren't any fuses for the output.

If no relay then it probably needs output transistors and a few resistors.

SX-205. Left channel doesn't work.Internal problem. Should I change any semiconductors / transistors,diods or other/? How to find out,which semiconductor is bad? Please,help me.

Check the final output relays first. They are mechanical and have been known to fail after so many cycles. The click you hear about 3 seconds after you push the power button are those relays.

SX-1600 + KD-491F

Hi again,

It would seem that you posted the problem here also. With your kind permission, I will repost my excerpts of my responses that others may benefit on similar concerns.

A. Most current receivers no longer include a PHONO input. Perhaps what could be done is to purchase a phono to line level pre-amplifier to go along in your purchase for a new receiver.

I was made to understand that the Pioneer SX-1600 is prone to speaker output problems which could either be:
1. the speaker relay (protection); and/or
2. the amp, STK4191II Stereo Module.

Either should be relatively easy to work on and perhaps you can try the services of a locally available qualified electronic technician since the repairs would not be too specialized. The service manual may be of help (or at least a schematic , they may be downloaded from here and here).

B. To recap what you need is a receiver that can accommodate:
4 - Pioneer S-DF1-K (15-100W, 8 ohms)
1 - Pioneer PD-F407 25 Disc CD Player
1 - Pioneer CT-300 dual tape deck
1 - Kenwood KD-491F turntable

C. Possible choices are (keeping in mind that the power output should be less if not equal to 100 watts and a turntable/phono input):
i. Onkyo TX-8522 Stereo Receiver;
ii. Yamaha RX-397 100 Watt Natural Sound AM/FM Stereo Receiver;
iii. Sony STR DE695 AV receiver;
iv. Teac AG-790 200 Watt Stereo Receiver;
v. Denon AVR 888 - AV receiver - 7.1 channel.

Some of the above also includes feature(s) to hook up to your video system. Some may even require a fifth speaker (subwoofer).

Incidentally, you can also choose another brand/model even without a turntable/phono input. As initially posted, a turntable/phone to line level pre-amplifier is only required. Here are some examples:
a. XP200 Turntable Preamp - Nano Series;
b. Pyle® Pro PP999 Phono Preamplifier;
c. Pro-Ject Phono Box Turntable Preamplifier;
d. Radial J33 RIAA Turntable Preamp Direct Box

Good luck with your project.

a little bit foolish thing: see if you have both the speaker channels (A and B) down. if you have both down it doesn't work - didn't for me.. and obviously make sure you have the right letter down - same outpout as your boxes
