Question about JVC RX-D301S Receiver

1 Answer

Whenever I turn receiver on, it turns off almost immediately

I bought this receiver used alongwith a Bose 5.1 speaker/sub-woofer system. Before buying, tested, worked fine. Got home and hooked it up, would work fine, but there was a loud crackling sound once in a while. Turned out one of the speaker connections was loose, fixed it. It worked fine for a couple of hrs but now, whenever I turn it on, it turns off almost immediately. I even unplugged all speakers and devices, same thing keeps happening. Is a fuse blown? If yes, how could I fix it economically? I would appreciate some guidance/help.

Re: Whenever I turn receiver on, it turns off almost...

The amplifier blew out (probably shorted and damaged when wire was loose, and gave out under load). It won't be cheap to repair....

Can i hook up my bose model ps38 powered sub to onkyo reciever

Why not. A speaker system should work with anything that produced sound meant for a speaker.
Don't you think?
find the woofer out on the onkyo and connect the bose sub-woofer there.
Seems pretty simple. If you don't think so, go hide in a closet.

How can I hook up BIC F12 subwoofer to Onkyo TX-DS838 receiver? Will the receiver power the subwoofer and other speakers?

Get a RCA cable and connect from your amp where it said Sub Woofer in the Pre Out box in the back of the amplifier top left hand side and take it to the "Sub In" located in the back of your Sub woofer bottom right hand (White round connector).
Good Luck!

How do I hook up a non powered sub woofer on my htr-5630?

You will need an amplifier or 2 channel receiver. Hook the sub out rca jack to the rca inputs on this new amp or receiver and hook the speaker terminals on sub to speaker terminals on same amp or receiver. Your Yamaha receiver doesn't have any power for a passive sub.Just pick up any old fairly high powered receiver for fifty dollars and you're good to go.I use old dolby pro logic receivers as they are a dime a dozen today. Good luck.

Sub wont work, all connectionsgood,cable good

If your front speakers are defined as small, the sub is locked to ON.

My $.02 regarding speaker size selection in this context. Generally speaking, if a speaker can adequately handle real bass, regardless of its apparent woofer size (like many Bose systems), I define it as Large and I also define the Sub as Plus so Low Frequencies will still be sent to the channel(s) they belong to along with the sub for those real deep tones.

the amp is overheating. Disconnect one speaker at a time to see if problem persists. If so, the amp needs serviced.

Go to the following website where you can get the service manual for $17.00, unbelieveable, don't you think? The service manual should help you sort out your hookup problems. Good luck.
