Question about Tannoy Sensys 7 Speaker

No sound from subwoofer

I have a subwoofer connected to the sub out jack of my reciever via a Monster cable. When I powered the unit up, there was no sound from the subwoofer, only the mains (2 speakers). I checked the connection, and tweaked the subwoofer controls, but still no sound. What have I overlooked?

Re: No sound from subwoofer

Have you checked for the continuity of the wirings? check for the resistance of your speaker from it jack..... it should measure close to 8ohms or 4ohms using a digital multimeter (DMM). check also the sub out jack of your reciever if there is a signal from it using your main speakers if they come with jacks also (turn the volume low to prevent damage to other speakers you connect on it!

I have a true sunfire sub and an onkyo 703 that has an rca connection for the sub. My question is do I connect my side channel polk 65's directly to the sub in jacks or directly to the reciever? If

The input jacks on the subwoofer panel are for connection of satellite speakers to it's crossover. The outputs are for the crossed over signal input to your receiver or amplifier, as there will be no amplification or channel processing from the subwoofer connection. It's only an optional crossover that may have a sonic advantage over the crossover in your receiver.

What you also can do is connect the speakers directly to the 703 and set the crossover frequency on it.

How do i connect ms 10 sub to yamaha RX-V1065 amp, I am using 2 monster cables.

The ms 10 is an active sub, so all you should do is connect the Subwoofer output on the rear of your amp to the LFE input on the sub with a simple audio cable.

Hi ive got a b&w as2 subwoofer but theres no sound? the power light works but my denon recievers not picking up the sub is there a fuse in the sub which may have blown ive tried all the settings on...

Are you running this subwoofer via an LFE (RCA line level) connection, or via high level (speaker lines in and out of the subwoofer)? There may be different ways to hook up this unit and it would be helpful to know how you have the unit connected. Thanks!

From reciever output to sub input only load hum.but if connected to input does work some. also if you move around RCA input connection hum will stop, and you will get some bass

You have a RCA input short, replace with new monster RCA cables tighten any screws, unit would need internal soldering possibly. You may need to get Serviced or fix on your own.

Sub doesnt do anything while plugged in ( Sunfire mk II)

Some subwoofers can sense the signal on their input and will only start when there's enough signal for long enough time for them to turn on the amp.

Try seting the "subwoofer signal out" on your reciever a bit higher, see if it does the trick, if not, try it with some other source (e.g. an mp3 or CD/DVD player) plugged directly into the subwoofer. If it still doesn't work, there's some other problem with your sub (bad connection inside sub, sub amplifier problems, maybe there's another fuse for the speaker itself, try to check it out).

If it works well with an alternate signal source, the problem might be either in reciever or the signal cable that you use, but could also be something else.

good luck

No sound comimg out

In order to get sound from your sub you need three things: power, a cable to get the audio signal to the sub, and a signal from the audio source hooked to the other end of that cable.

You have power. Tell me about your cable(s) and signal. Are you running the speaker wire directly to the sub and using a built in crossover, then from the sub to your speakers? Or does your receiver have a dedicated subwoofer jack, and if it does, is your receiver producing output on that jack?

Subwoofer not powering enough (Sounds like under powered 8inch)

get a nice monster subwoofer cable and a Subwoofer PowerCenter™ SW 200 with Clean Power™ Stage 1 get it from like amazon and you'll definately see a difference and also put the sub in like a corner

Subwoofer VERY weak

According to the KLH manual for the 9906 "6 pack" with the BassBite sub... it says "if your sub is connected via the speaker - level terminals, your reciever must be set for "NO" subwoofer - even though you are using one. VErify proper polarity on your speaker connection wires. (red or gold to +, black or silver to -). Depending on how you have your woofer connected to the reciever, if connected to a reciever without a subwoofer out then set your reciever for LARGE speakers and turn the subwoofer setting "OFF". Failure to do so will result in little to no bass. If you do have a subwoofer out from your reciever adjust your speaker size setting to small or large speakers as appropriate. Set the recievers sub output to ON. Connecting small speakers to a reciever set for LArge speakers can result in damage to small speakers.

Hope this helps.
