    your amp puts out 7.1 ( 7 speakers plus subwoofer)

    your hbx1 is only 5.1 (5 speakers plus a sub)

    you need a rca y adaptor to run your subwoofer ie two plugs into 1 plug

    Not ver artistic but does this help you?

SW-910, blown speaker or ? makes rattle/buzz sound. replace speaker and/or change to passive type sw?

i would suggest replacing it rather than fixing. The cost of the repair will be about the same.
if you went to a passive sub/seperate power amp setup you could get a much higher quality unit, but it would cost you considerably more cash.

My sony str-dh710 constanstantly goesinto protect if the volume goes above 15-20....all connnections to speakers are good.

Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as a root cause for intermittent shutdown.

Cant get sony sub woofer model no. ss-wg60 working on my sony receiver model no. str-de445

First, go into the "setup" mode of the receiver and go to speaker select, then toggle to sub, highlight and make sure it's "on" Then toggle to speaker volume and check the sub level. Maximum setting is "0". Make sure you are connected to the subwoofer output on the receiver as well. If you still have a problem, post a comment and I can help you some more.Hope this helps

My Sony STR-DG600 Receiver constantly goes into Protect Mode when using FM or XM.

Check to see if the antenna is firmly connected and not making contact with the receiver chassis or other inputs/outputs.

Low amp output

Make sure the BOSS isn't in "Protected" mode (Red led lit) and connect the speakers properly (check the connections if they are in "bridged" mode).
Also, make sure you set the cross-over, bass boost setting, bass volume control and the bridge mode according to the speakers you are connecting. Check the input level too.
The BOSS amplifiers are of very poor quality and it can be easily broken. Maybe yours is broken.

Subwoofer Connection: Speaker wire to Mono RCA

The easiest solution to use your subwoofer is to buy an amp for it. Any old stereo receiver from a garage sale will probably do just fine.
  1. Connect the mono RCA subwoofer output from your Sony with a 1xRCA-to-2xRCA splitter to both the left and right input of the cheap reciever's tape or aux input
  2. connect both speaker outputs of the cheap reciever to the speaker input on your subwoofer. make sure both black (-) outputs on the reciever connect to the black input on the sub, and the red outputs (+) on the reciever are both connected to the red input on the subwoofer.
  3. make sure the cheap receiver's volume is all the way down. turn your Sony up to about the loudest you'll listen to it. turn up the subwoofer amp until it's loud enough to sound good.
  4. leave the subwoofer amp alone, the Sony volume will all you ever need to touch from now on.

You can even now turn off your subwoofer / adjust the volume easily now!
