Question about Sony Sa-wsis10 Sawsis10 Sub Woofer For Dav-is10 Davis10 Other
This speaker comes as part of a 5.1 surround system which has a proprietary connection to a dvd/amp. I have disconnected the 5 small satellite speakers and am now using them with a new and separate amp but would like to do the same with this sub rather than buy a completely new one. I figure that in theory it should be possible to locate & separate the wiring for this active subs speakers and power input from the proprietary connection/system then re-wire and use it as a basic standalone sub but as to how and if it will work I do not know so any help/advice would be welcome.
This should actually be pretty easy: whatever signal you are feeding to your new amp needs to go to the old amp through its aux line-level input (a "Y" cable would be fine). The old amp has the filter built-in to send only the low frequencies to the sub. Let me know if it doesn't work via the link.

try to spray contact cleaner into the speaker port itself.. Powered off of course.. let it dry and try again.. this will clean any connectivity issues due to bad contacts.. as far as replacing jacks.. try the suspected "bad" speaker and wiring in another port.. if it works then the speaker and wiring is good and you have to check actual jack in which you were asking and back to auto amplifier circuit or transistors.

SOURCE: 5.1 Surround sound not working
Maybe the surround processor is having a bad day... My kenwood would do similar and a reset was necessary to correct. Have you tried resetting the system? On my Sony STR DE 597 this is accomplished by powering off. Then while holding the 2 channel button down (front face plate) power on. A reset message is displayed. Your model may be similar but check your manual or download the PDF of the manual from Sony's support website. Hope this helps

Had a set of bose AM-10 that I had to take back cuz Sony said that their receivers needed a powered sub woofer. got AM-15's and hooked them up-AMAZING SOUND.

That points pretty much to a bad shield on the cable. Have you tried another one? Another thing to try is to rotate the AC power cord on the sub (if it has one). Sorry, too lazy to look it up.

Yes, it will support a powered subwoofer.
If your existing speakers are from an all-in-one Home Theater in a Box and they have molded connectors you'll have to chop them off to make the ends bare wire and determine which is plus and which is minus on each. Loads of 4 ohms may present a problem at high volume levels.
Take the rated wattage of the sub and other speakers in an HTIB with a HUGE grain of salt. They plays numbers games with th low impedance and the allowable distortion levels to get the results they publish.
For all anyone knows, the speakers and their original electronics may have been designed to operate together to yield adequate performance (like Bose does). Breaking that pairing may give unpredictable results and risk of damage to the speakers or the new receiver.

I have a setup similar to what I think you're trying to do and it works great!
You're in luck because you have a full complement of pre-outs. You'll need a separate amp for the 901's.
First some background.
The use of 901's Active EQ (or any external proxcessor) in any digital AV receiver setup for anything EXCEPT STEREO listening through the 901's alone requires you to have a separate amplifier for them and to avoid having to use a Tape Monitor which could introduce proprietary and potentially damaging Active Equalization back into anything in the AV Receiver with its conventional speakers.
In an AVR, if you activate any Tape Monitor circuit at all, you will kill any digital sources. That is a function of AV receivers in general, nothing to do with 901's. Your Pre-Outs get us around that possibility and limitation but it also means you need a moderately powerful amp for your 901's. I use a Carver MT-200.
Run it with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L and R Pre-Outputs ** and the 901's amp channels. ** Front Pre Out (or one of your analog Tape Outs) >>> Bose EQ Amplifer IN, then Bose EQ Amplier OUT >>> new amplifier IN.
Run it with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L and R Pre-Outputs ** and the 901's amp channels.
** Front Pre Out (or one of your analog Tape Outs) >>> Bose EQ Amplifer IN, then Bose EQ Amplier OUT >>> new amplifier IN.
Then set the new amp's volume control (if it has one, mine doesn't) to something HIGH and leave it alone. Run through your speaker setup routines on the AVR. After levels and distances are set the AVR will be the boss of the 901's. With 901's don't even need subwoofers but they don't hurt. If you do have subs I recommend sharing the LFE with the 901's.
I've done this in my own setup once. Turn the 901's around so the rear faces point into the listening area. Crank up a movie like Master and Commander and when the waves are crashing or cannon are firing you WILL FEEL A BREEZE from them. Now THAT is multi-media!I advise having the 901's share LFE with any subwoofers you might have.
