SOURCE: Speakers connection

There shouldnt be a problem with that at all. The subwoofer needs to be self powered. The Yamaha has a "Subwoofer Output" on the back. Just connect it there.

SOURCE: The subwoofer is not working on our Bose 5.1 surround speakers.

First of all you should never indicate speakers as Large unless they can produce below 20Hz (which is very low), otherwise always set your speakers to Small.

Second, did you also indicate in teh setupmenu that you have a subwoofer? Because if all speakers are set to Large some receivers will omit a subwoofer because Large indicates the speakers can reproduce all sounds even below 20Hz.

So walk through your setup menu, say YES when the sub (SFW) is asked for and that should do the trick.

No it is not compatible to use RX-V 467 with Bose Lifestyle Acoustimass 9.RX-V 467 is a 5.1-channel AV Receiver.
Bose Lifestyle Acoustimass 9 subwoofer are designed to be used with their special equalizer and require a 'Pre-Out Main-In Coupler' or 'Tape Monitor' connection. The compatible models are the:

  1. RX-797 (Pre-Out/Main-In)
  2. RX-497 (Tape Monitor)
  3. RX-397 (Tape Monitor)
  4. AX-596 (Pre-Out/Main-In)
Even though you try to connect it will have buzzing noise or no sound.

post a comment for further assistance.
Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

Speakers not playing

The problem can be the cable or speakers or RX-V463 or settings. Need to check one by one.
Set the RX-V on DTS or Dolby Digital
1) Check Cables - connect the 2 (surround) cables from RXV's Centre Out to Centre speaker. If the Centre speaker works, then cables are ok.
2) Check speakers - Connect each Surround speaker to RXV's Centre out. If it works Speakers are ok.
3) Check RXV - Set it on DTS or Dolby Digital
Connect RXV's surround out (one at a time) L and R to the Centre speaker. If there is no sound, the problem could be RXV's settings (I need to read the manual).

Hope this helps.

Yamaha Receiver RX-V3800 Rear Left surround click sound

It's possible it is some sort of interference pickup, but another possible I've come across a number of times on Yamahas is poor earth connections via the back panel.

All the circuit boards have earth connections on them and the screws holding them to the back panel form an earth bonding connection. Tighten all the screws on the back to eliminate this possibility. Costs nothing to try and may just solve it.

How do I connect my Yamaha RX-V463 surround sound system to an analog tv? The tv only has the three RCA jacks for audio and video. the RX-V463 has many jacks, and the manual is no help. the manual does...

Actually, the Quick Start Guide on page 6 of the manual shows the TV connection.

Consider that the TV is simply a visual element in your entertainment system and the rest will sound easy.

Run a single RCA cable from the receiver to the TV's Video IN so you can use its menus and view whatever video comes into the receiver.

Manage whatever audio you want to hear in HI-FI directly from its source to the receiver and NOT washed through the inferior audio electronics and speakers of the TV.

I have a Yamaha RX - V665 and the right rear surround works only part of the time.

Start by using an old test speaker and connect it directly to the right surround output with a short wire and monitor it.

If it sems to work with no issues, you either have a bad connection at receiver or speaker, or a break in the speaker wire somewhere.

If you have the same problem with the test speaker, you have a rgt. rear output issue in the receiver and it needs repair.

Hope this helps

Do you have all 5+1 speakers connected? You need to go to the Setup menu of yamaha and set which speakers you have and which you don't. For example if you don't have the Center speaker connected, receiver will redirect and mix the sound to the other speakers.
Blue-ray film over HDMI should automatically output via all your configured speakers (nothing to be configured).
