    Subwoofer and front 2 speakers are working but the rear ones are not (they emit some white noise). It doesnt look like there is anything wrong with my computer since I tried plugging in to my ipod with the same result. Note: the speakers used to work before the summer.

    My computer says something is playing, but no sound comes out.
    I might have to reinstall them, but I don't think thats the problem.
    should there be a green plug in for them?
    if so, I don't see any.

I had the same problem. I found that the analog input plug carrying the signal into the subwoofer jack was too wide, so it was not seated all the way in. When I trimmed down the plug so it seated properly, the surround speakers started working fine.

So guys today i noticed that most of my speakers are not working i have 7.1 and the only speaker that is working is the ''front left'' the others aren't working (the other 6.1). With windows media player only the front left and front right are working even with winamp. With the powerDVD the other speakers works but only sound effects comes out and and they are very low speech doesn't come out.

I used the diagnostics but it tells me everything is ok but when I use the speaker settings/speaker selection where you can choose to hear the ''noise or channel'' (where it tells you front left, front center, front right side right...etc) everything comes out from front left and nothing from other speakers and the others nothing.

This may be in the sound card settings itself. Even though you may have adjusted the Windows settings {if thats what your using} the sound card needs to also be set up for surround. Some sound cards do not support 4 speakers or surround sound systems. Go to Device Manager and find your sound card and manufacture then check there technical support page for info.

Turn up the volume on the left or right speakers or turn down the center channel volume to meet your preferences. There should be a setting for that in most receivers.

My powered subwoofer no longer works through the receiver


if you have your front and centers set to 'small' you want your Bass out to be subwoofer only, and the rca jack labeled 'sub out' is the only place to connect your sub to if you want to control the frequencies with your reciever. I dont know the brand of your sub, or the inputs on the back of it to advise you where to connect, but it sounds like it worked for you at one time, but suddenly it does not

Alright i had a chance to look over things, this is how you are going to hook up the sub. first we'll be connecting the surround sound unit to the sub woofer.
surround sound unit sub woofer
left front: positive (+) <-----to------------->(+) left speaker level in
negative ( - )<- - -to- - - - - - ->( - ) left speaker level in

right front: positive (+) <-----to------------->(+) right speaker level in
negative ( - )<- - -to- - - - - - >( - ) right speaker level in

now that the surround sound unit is connected to the sub woofer you will need to connect the front surround sound speakers to the sub woofer.
sub woofer front surround sound speaker
left speaker level out (+)<-----to--------> (+) left front speaker
left speaker level out( - ) <- - - to- - - - ->( - ) left front speaker

right speaker level out (+)<-----to--------> (+) right front speaker
right speaker level out( - ) <- - - to- - - ->( - ) right front speaker

Alright now that the wires are all over the place and plugged in
turn everything on and see how it sounds. let me know if everything is working as it should. if you need help with anything else or if something does not seem right please feel free to contact me via e-mail or phone

I recently purchased a new Denon AVR-391 receiver and am having a problem hooking up my subwoofer. It seems that the Denon has a pre-out RCA looking output and my subwoofer uses conventional speaker wire. ...


Hi,
Your sub-woofer apparently does not have an amplifier built into it. This type requires you to use your front left and front right speaker output to got through it to your regular speakers. It is called a passive sub-woofer for that reason.
To set it up, Connect your front speakers to the "output" of the sub. It should say "to speakers" on it.
Then connect the Speaker Outputs for the left front and right front on your Denon AVR-391 directly to the Sub. It should say on the back of the Sub "to amplifier".
Here is some theory you should know, if you don't already know it, that will help you get a satisfactory result in setting up this system.
There is a condition on setting up all speakers and subs that not everyone know. It's call "phase alignment". Phase alignment (A Good Thing) refers to all of the speakers in a system moving in the same direction (in and out) at the same instant in time. This gives you much clearer sound and better response from your sub-woofer.
Phase Cancellation (a bad thing) is when some of the speakers are moving out and other moving in during the very same instant in time. It causes problems in sound.
IN A SUB-WOOFER, IT CAN CANCEL OUT THE LOW NOTES.
Here is how to handle it:
On the back of the receiver the speaker terminal outputs are colored Red and Black. Black is considered negative and Red is considered positive. On the back of the Sub woofer and on the speakers the same colors apply. MAKE SURE THAT ALL OF THE CONNECTIONS GO BLACK TO BLACK AND RED TO RED WHEN CONNECTING UP THE SPEAKER WIRES.
The system will work either way. But you will have severe bass loss if the woofer wiring is out of phase because of phase cancellation.
Hope this helps,
Best Regards,
Mark

You need to use an amplified sub. The Yamaha receiver is only sending "Pre-Amp Signal" not amplified audio like the rest of your speakers. If your sub has a crossover built in, connect it's speaker level (wires) to the "B" side of the receiver which will send audio to your sub and it will cross it over internally. Not the best sounding, but it works. Amplified subs range in price from 200 and up. Hope this helps

well it depends on what audio device installed on your computer coz other you can make an adjustment for 4 channel, 5 channel & 7 channel speakers including sub woofer and surrounds. try to check your setting or the best way is to unplug your front speaker and sub woofer. good luck!!!

SA-AX720 no subwoofer signal?


THIS UNIT HAS NO SUB WOOFER AMP IN IT. THE ONLY WAY TO OVER COME THIS IS TO HOOK THE LEFT AND RIGHT FRONT SPEAKERS STRAIGHT TO THE SUB WOOFER AND THEN GO FROM THE SUB WOOFER BACK TO THE INPUTS ON THE BACK OF THE UNIT FOR THE FRONT SPEAKERS. THE SUB WOOFER THIS WAY WILL EXTRACT THE BASS AND THE FRONT WILL RECEIVE THEIR PART. THIS SOUNDS CRAZY AS HELL I KNOW BUT THAT'S HOW I GOT MINE TO WORK. THE OUTPUT FOR THE SUBWOOFER IS USELESS AND PUT THERE FOR YOU TO HOOK UP AN AMP FOR A SUB WOOFER. EVERYTHING HAS SHORT COMINGS, AND THAT'S THE ONE FOR THE AX-720.

HTS 6500/37 sub woofer


the reciever should have a "subwoofer level" setting, or a "bass level control" If you cannot find this then try to place the "sub-woofer" away from walls and elevate it from the floor. This will reduce it's loudness/ intensity at annoying frequencies...

Good Luck
