I just got my system today. All the speakers are working, except the sub-woofer. Any ideas what could be wrong (if not DoA)?

I have tested the Aux and 5.1(sound card) connections...not a sound from the sub

Did you connect power to the sub-woofer? Most subs have their own amplifier. Just check if there is also an on / off switch on the sub.

    The power is on and everything works, except the sub-woofer.

    I'm not sure you can put another speaker on the subwoofer output to check if the new sub is defect or the amp, but you could be right something did come defect.

    yeah I tested that with the 5.1 PC card. The center speaker rings,the sub does not. I switched them over; The sub output goes through the center and again the sub is silent (for the center output). I can not find the fuse location either; I have to return it and hopefully the next 1 works >.>

    I wish you luck with the next one. It does not happen often you get a DOA twice in a row. Enjoy the music, when you finally have the whole set working like you want it to.

MX6050D Subwoofer Issues


Hello, welcome to Fixya!

Fault is either from the main system or the sub-woofer itself.

You need to test both unit in order to detect which of the two is giving the fault, so that you can concentrate on the faulty unit.

Test the woofer with a AA battery or any other battery. Put your ears close to the woofer and observe if you will hear any sound. If the woofer makes sound, then it means the woofer is working, but if it doesn't make sound, then it means the woofer is defective. Or you can disconnect one of the working speakers and connect the woofer to that part. If there is no sound, then obviously, the woofer is defective.

If the woofer seem to be working, then the unit needs to be tested also.

Connect one of the working speakers to the sub-woofer's section of the main unit. If the speaker doesn't bring out sound, check the system's menu settings, check the volume and make sure the sub-woofer volume is raised to the highest level and not on mute. ( Note that most Theater systems has separate volumes for each speakers). If the volume is raised to the highest level and there is still not sound from the woofer part, then it means the woofer channel has burnt. It could be a fuse or a defective channel. At this point, I think you need help from a repairman.

I hope the above is clear.

Regards.

HI I BOUGHT HT-S6300 3D-Ready Home Theater System 2 DAYS BEFORE. MY SUB-WOOFER IS NOT WORKING. NO SOUND IS COMING OUT EVEN BLUE LIGHT IS ON. I HAVE CHECKED SPEAKER CONFIGURATION, AND IT GIVES SOUND TO ALL...


Check your owners manual.You will probably have to activate the sub woofer outlet,using the remote.This outlet can usually be programmed to do more than one function.

Power sub woofer is not working on my pioneer vsx-81txv everything is working all the speakers except the power sub connection at the back all i can hear is the hissing sound when i try to connect the sub...


Hissing? How loud? A sub isn't even capable of making high frequency sounds at normal volumes.

The Pioneer manual would tell you how to enable and test the subwoofer output.
Page 17 and the MACCV procedures on Page 33 (auto) or 43 (manual)

I have 2 onkyo home theater systems, one is an older ht-r8230 with an skw-8230 powered subwoofer & the other system is a ht-r420 with s powered skw-420 sub. all i did was change the rooms the 2 systems...


It's possible that you have accidentally switched off the sub-woofer outputs on the receivers. Onkyo have a speaker set up test. You should run that and see if the speakers are on and that a signal is getting through to them.

Hello! Pls, send diagram connector to sub-woofer Samsung HT-DS1000. I want to connect low signal(Sub woofer) direct to amplifier. If connect to AUX - sub woofer sound with delay, no good sound. Thank...


The speaker connections are documented in the manual.

Are we talking about an external add-on sub not supplied with the HT-DS1000? If so, please identify it.

The interconnecting cable itself is a 13-pin DIN.

Bare wire sub to single RCA jack receiver


Yes you can modify RCA cables to make bare wire tails.
If the unit has a sub o/p then you just connect up your sub bass unit to whatever the amp needs.

An RCA cable is 2 wire which is all you would normally need for sub bass speaker level signal.
It may be a good idea to eventually upgrade the wire size if you want really good sub bass as lower frequencies draw more current and so require more copper.

Please let me know if this any help, thanks for using FixYa.

Hi I own a Technics Hi-Fi system (Model SC-EH780) and would like to attach a subwoofer to it. I cannot find the subwoofer unit that is supposed to go with this system. Can you help?


Any powered sub-woofer will work with it. Check the back of the Technics, make sure there is an RCA output labeled "Sub-woofer" or "Woofer" or "Sub". If so, you can get any brand of powered sub woofer and it will work. A powered sub-woofer is one with an amplifier for the sub built into the box and you will need to plug it into an A/C outlet as well. The only exceptions to what will work with this unit is to make sure you are not buying a sub-woofer that is made to only work with the companion unit it is originally sold with. Many Panasonic and JVC sub woofers are like this. Just look for a sub-woofer that is not part of any system. Velodyne makes some really great sub-woofers that would work nice with yours, but they can be a little expensive, but they are very good.

If your Technics has no RCA output for the sub-woofer, you will need to make sure that whatever powered sub-woofer you buy has a speaker level input for it. Most powered sub-woofers have this feature, so that you may just run the front speaker outputs of the receiver into the subwoofer and then the sub-woofer will have a set of speaker outputs right below the speaker inputs so you can still have your front speakers connected to that and not loose anything from your system.

I hope I have explained this in a manner you will understand easy, if not just post whatever questions you may have right on this thread and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

It would also be appreciated if you could rate this solution if you no longer need any help from me. If you do require more help, please wait to rate this until we are finished. That way I do not get an undeserved bad rating when we have not even finished our communications.
By the way, A "Thanks for trying" and "Helpful" rating are really not good, they always end up lowering my overall score.
