Question about Pioneer VSX-D608 Receiver

2 Answers

So subwoofer output on Pioneer VSX-D608

My receiver was in storage for about a year. When I brought it out I found that the subwoofer channel no longer worked.

Any ideas what to look for? I opened it up and looked for something obvious like cracked solder around the connector, but I didn't see anything. Right now I'm using it without a subwoofer, but I really miss the bottom end.

    I spent a lot of time going through those menus and turning the subwoofer on and off had no effect. I just seem to be getting no signal at all at that output.

Hey,

I too have had mine in storage for a long time, and have unfortunately lost the manual.

I initially had the same issues as you, it seems that we need to set a DSP mode, then play with the channels and boost the output on the sub woofer channel, if you are lucky enough to still have the remote I just remember like 10 mins ago, pressing the " >> " button up the top takes you through some settings (Can't remember the way to do it without the remote :( ), and one of them is sub woofer on and off.

I hope that gets you in the right direction. :) Still trying to work it out myself.

Coryr here again. It turns out you were absolutely correct. I didn't have a dsp mode selected (I thought I did).

Thanks for your help.

Subwoofer channel no longer has output


Is your sub powered (amplifier built-in)? If so, connect your MP3 player directly to the sub input and see if you hear audio. If you do hear audio, check for cable problems from Panasonic to sub input. If the sub is unpowered then it's either the speaker wiring, an intermittent sub and/or your Panasonic at fault.

How do i connect a sub wooferto my reciever


I own 2 of these Pioneer VSX-D903S units.

The only way to hook a powered subwoofer up to a VSX-D903S is if your subwoofer is equipped with amplified/speaker level terminals on the back, in addition to the line-level input. If you only have a line-level input, do not attempt to hook it up to this receiver.

If you're lucky, and have speaker-level inputs on your powered subwoofer, you would use the amplified terminals (connect to B-channel on the receiver). DO NOT connect anything to the line-level connection.

Alternatively, you could build two unpowered subwoofers, then set the receiver's Impedance switch to LOW, then connect one enclosure to each of the "B-channel" outputs. Connect your regular left and right speakers to their corresponding "A-channel" outputs. [Impedance range: 4 Ohm minimum, 16 Ohm Maximum]

How to connect a kenwood ka- 9100 to a pioneer vsx-d608


You don't say, what role the Kenwood is supposed to play but I'll assume you want to slave the Kenwood (and its speakers) to the Pioneer.

The VSX-D608 doesn't have multi-channel pre-outs so you wouldn't have local control of the volume at the Pioneer.

http://www.auctiva.com/hostedimages/showimage.aspx?gid=108365&ppid=1122&image=404270323&images=404269872,404269931,404269984,404270049,404270137,404270323&formats=0,0,0,0,0,0&format=0

The KA could be a subwoofer amp as the Pioneer has a pre-out for that.

Outs to Ins. "Power In" on the KA would be for an external volume-controlled source. Otherwise, use one of its non-Phono inputs.

Power to subwoofer but no power to SA-HT692 receiver.


I had the same problem although not in storage but it just lost power to the console. It turns out that when I press down on the cable connecting the sub woofer and console, at the back of the sub woofer, I temporarily get power to the console. I did that for long enough to eject my DVD's and then opened the back of the sub woofer to fix it and cracked the board and broke it forever.

Sounds like the output stage of the amp is bad. Needs service.
