SOURCE: Pioneer VSX-505S Subwoofer Installation

That type of subwoofer is not used with this receiver. This receiver actually outputs no power for a subwoofer, therefore only needs a plain ol' rca signal wire. This is due to the fact that you need a powered sub... one that you plug in to the wall and it has its own built in amp. you simply run an rca from yyour 505s to that sub.

SOURCE: KLH SUBWOOFER - RECEIVER-SURROUND SOUND -5 SPEAKER HOOK UP INSTRUCTIONS

Had the same problem with KLH E-10D Preamped Subwoofer. Afte brief research, I found the problem was with my Pioneer VSX-D509S reciever settings, not the subwoofer. If you have the same reciever, you can go to the pioneer website to download specific model owner's manuals.

Select your Pioneer reciever model and it will give you an option to download the pdf manual. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: No Soound on Subwoofer from Yamaha RX-V363

I have the same setup. Are you going out of the subwoofer output of the reciever? (it's purple.) then into the LFE jack of the subwoofer (also purple.) That's the only connection you need besides power. If you have those right, try using your cable for something else to make sure the cable is good. Is the indicator of the subwoofer green? Mine comes on with the reciever. Good luck!

SOURCE: my boyfriend has pioneer surround sound speakers

A vacuum works good, or some good tape. It's only a dust cover for the voice coil. It does nothing for performance of the speaker, unless it's loose and it will vibrate and sound bad and the you can re-glue the edges.
I'm sure your daughter feels bad, but let her know that she did not damage the speaker at all, it will be just fine.

I have a vsx44 pioneer and i plug my subwoofer do not work my sub has 2 wires and i have an adapter to plug at the receiver


Is the adapter on the back of the receiver a yellow one (like a tv's red/white/yellow)? And the sub itself is a 2 wire (red/black)? If the subwoofer is just a speaker with no electronics and you answered yes to the first two questions then continue reading...

Problem: New receivers suck and are made for subwoofers that are self powered. The subwoofer input on the receiver only puts out a low signal. The subwoofer itself will amplify the the signal.

Solution: Find a receiver that supports the older subwoofers or do like I did... buy a used 3D surround system for around $10 on eBay, if you don't have one laying around. Be sure to find one that shows a picture of the back so you can verify that it has the 2 wire inputs and supports a subwoofer. Once you have it, connect a cable from the receivers subwoofer output into the surround systems input. It will be only one wire so plug it into the left (white) input on the surround box. You can also use a splitter to get both left/right inputs.

This will enable your subwoofer to be used again and will also give you alot more control over it. Turning off the surround sound box will allow you to keep the bass off when needed. You will also gain individual volume control over your subwoofer this way. I hope this helps!

Denon receiver not working surround output


If everything is connected correct, the only thing I can think of, is you don't put in a surround signal. If you only feed 2 way stereo, only two speaker will work. Also if you switch to stereo, the other channels will stop working. Check the cables, the settings and the input.

I have the following setup: AV Receiver: Pioneer


Very common problem with today's receivers. Receivers made today don't have a true preamp section in the amplifier and do not amplify the sound to the extent of an older receiver. I have large 15" front speakers on my system, and have stuck with my 15 year old receiver just because I know that a new receiver will not have the power to drive them well. Many of the newer receivers need to be turned up to 50-60% before you can even hear anything from the speakers.

Surround Sound System Settings ---- Correct Time Delay Setting in Multi-channel Audio

A correctly set surround sound system can yield dramatic improvements to your
home theater sound or multi-channel music listening experience. In particular,
a correctly set time delay setting between the different channels is essential
for a realistic and unified surround soundfield.
Luckily, most of today's surround processors make setting the time delays
between the rear and the fronts a matter of a few entries in the setup menu.
Yet having a proper understanding of the principles behind correct time delay
settings is essential for the best results.
In this guide, we explain the principles behind time delay settings in surround
sound and show you how to adjust your surround processor or AV receiver for the
best surround sound field.

Time Delay Setting in Multi-channel Surround Sound Systems

Correct home theater speaker placement and properly balanced sound levels
between the different channels in multi-channel audio, while crucial, are not
enough to sustain a unified soundfield in a surround sound setup. A correctly
set surround sound system requires that sound from all the different speakers
reach the listener at exactly the same instant.
This explains why all fronts, left, right and center channel speakers, should
be set at exactly the same distance from the listening position. At the same
time, in a typical home theater setup, the surround speakers are closer to the
viewer than the fronts.

To compensate for this distance discrepancy, surround sound playback systems
apply a split-second delay to the surround sound channels.

The broadcaster of the TV station has to tell you they are transmitting surround sound - sometimes they are just transmitting stereo. Also, the media as in CD's and DVD movies must have surround sound embedded or recorded on it to allow surround sound.

Unable to set surround sound to work


The media you are playing must have surround sound recorded or encoded on it in order for surround sound to play or occur. Get a DVD or CD that has surround sound stated on the label - otherwise the system defaults to stereo playback.

Pioneer vsx-519 no sound from center and surround


Make sure that the sound field/programme you have selected is dolby digital not stereo.(On the amp)
You also need to check on the display that is says DIGITAL not ANOLOUGE, as only a digital input, Optical fibre cable, HDMI, COAX will be a digital signal.
If you are using red and white rca connectors, it is not going to work, as this is an Anolouge signal.
