I need help trying to set up the surround sound for my vr-390 receiver. i have two two large side speakers. a large middle. and a subwoofer i cant get to work. (all kenwood) i also have 2 bose surround...

Manuals help. Read them. Nothing in your receiver is actually a multichannel source so you'll be needing to understand the external sources that originate that kind of programming. Manuals.
Here's one...

Try the other manufacturers' support sites for your unidentified gear, by using a common search engine or these guys...
Search Engine of your choice: "(product) manual"

'Large' is not literal in the context of Bass Management. It refers to the ability of a given speaker to handle REAL bass. Yes = Large, No = Small. 'Small' redirects bass from that speaker channel to the sub.

Web search concepts like bass management, speaker placement, multichannel sound, digital audio, etc.

Yes. It needs to know you have a subwoofer or it won't send low frequencies out to one. Then you have to calibrate its level to match the rest of your speakers. Hit the SETUP section in the manual (available at

I have a kenwood vr-707 it gets surround sound on dvd/vcr but I can't get surround sound on just tv.

Well you have a built in decoder/surround processor that will detect a signal with the surround sound info(dvd/sat.receiver/cable converter etc.) and will then process it to the different speakers on your system. In the absence of that signal it will process it as standard stereo sound(two front speakers). You may want to look in your receiver functions/menu for simulated surround.
Hope this will help.

IR receiver on unit not working?

Sounds to me like the issue is the rx in the unit. It can be fixed with very little work if you can locate the part. Let me take a look and see if I can locate the part number for you. Although I have to say that Kenwwod can keep a tight lip on their parts lists.

Surround sound not working properly

Hi guys,

Make sure that your sound aka dvd or whatever is set for a DTS (5.1) set your dvd at bitstreem and your receiver to automatic detection. When your movie will start you will heard your Receiver Relay//Mosfet clicking and a Red led will say DTS once you get there you will be able to select your Doldy digital surround the real one.

Ps: if you want to reset your VR-309 to default HOLD the POWER button for 5 sec unplug it from the wall hold it for 5sec while unplugged and replug it will be rested to default.
