Question about Kenwood VR-507 Receiver

Sub-woofer output not working

I have a Kenwood VR-507 and a Kenwood SW-35HT subwoofer connected to it. When I first started connecting all the cables on my first home theatre system, the subwoofer was working. Well, during the course of my "experiments", I noticed that the SW-35HT wasn't producing any sound at all. I don't know if the subwoofer has failed or the VR-507 subwoofer output has failed. So if anybody can tell me what steps to remedy the situation, I'd really appreciate it. Thank you.

    I have done and redone the setup several times. By placing a meter on the coaxial output, I do not get a power reading at all.

Kenwood vr606 reciever shutting off subwoofer and centre speaker simultaneously after few minutes/seconds of powering on. WHat's the cause?

The receiver's out put sections are grouped in pairs. Front left and right in one output, rear left and right in second output, and center channel and sub output on the third. Sounds like a semiconductor or semiconductors have gone bad in the center & sub output.

Hi friends i am using kenwood subwoofer sw-300 its not working from two days, i observer relay triping sound from inside the amp relay omron g5r 2232p-kw 48vdc has continue tripping while power on,

Short circuit protection energizes. Check for any external short circuit with connecting sires to sub woofer. If it found OK, the sub-woofer output amplifier section circuit inside the set is fault. Short circuited component/s. Check and replace them. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

The subwoofer output on my Kenwood VR-606 has suddenly stopped working. I have tried the "setup" several times, turning the subwoofer off and back on. Also, when I first power up the system, it emits a low...

It sounds like the problem is not with your VR-606. If you hear a hum from the sub, the problem is more likely to be in the sub's built-in power amplifier. However, it is worth resetting the amplifier to factory presets. To do this, unplug the power cable from the mains supply and reconnect whilst holding down the power on/standby key. If the hum persists, connect any powered speaker to the sub-out socket, power on and listen for the hum. If no hum then suspect the powered sub amp. Turn the sub on with no connection to the Kenwood VR-606. If hum persists, the sub has a problem and will need to be replaced or repaired. By the way, you said there is a low frequency hum through the 'speakers' for about 30 mins. Is that all speakers or just the sub? Hope this helps.
Cheers, Don.

Kenwood sw-35ht Replace with a kicker sub

I suppose you could, but you are talking about a driver (speaker) that was not designed for that cabinet size and amplifier used in the Kenwood, There are differences in speaker design besides power rating and impedance.

How do I adjust my subwoofer bass level for my kenwood kdc-138 car tereo You can download the manual from Kenwoods site. While the unit is in Standby mode, press the B.Boost button for a second or two. You should now be in the Menu. Select SWPRE. Now chose SW from the (R*/SW) options. The output of your CD player is now a dedicated sub woofer output. I hope this is what you meant. There are many settings regarding the sub woofer and generally the sound in whole. Getting the manual is highly advisable. dreamsystems.

Sub woofer output port does not seem to work on my kenwood VR 407, checked sub woofer on another system - works fine, any easy solutions?

Is the 407 set up to drive the unknown sub. It's not just plug n play.

The manual will guide you, around page 15. Also refer to your subwoofer manual. Try for that one.
