Question about Yamaha HTR-5150
Just bought the 5150 and plugged our subwoofer into the output subwoofer plug in on back of receiver. The subwoofer works but we get no sound out of it. Is there something we are missing or is the thing shot?
The only thing you do is to open your receivers,then locate the output connector if you see the female RCA jack ,then push it out the broken piece ,that's it

SOURCE: No subwoofer output
1. Try twisting the RCA plugs from CD player and see if they are not connecting right.
2. Replace the cable from the Cd player to the receiver
3. Try a different input
4. Try a different CD player
See if any of those solve your issue. Replacing the cable worked for me one time

sir please check first the volume setting of rear and center speaker it could be set to min. you can not hook 2sub via the sub out because it only has one rca output. but you can use the passive connection via the speakers. you control though the subs by the amount of db you put on your main speakers. if test fails for the rear and center, try using a dvd source and set to any video dsp. raise the volume of rear and center. if still no sound coming, have it checked by the dealer could be a problm with the dsp.

I have the same setup. Are you going out of the subwoofer output of the reciever? (it's purple.) then into the LFE jack of the subwoofer (also purple.) That's the only connection you need besides power. If you have those right, try using your cable for something else to make sure the cable is good. Is the indicator of the subwoofer green? Mine comes on with the reciever. Good luck!

SOURCE: Power Subwoofer doesn't work
1. Your source material does not contain bass frequencies.
2. Your SUBWOOFER SET - BASS OUT is set to Front, rather than SWFR (subwoofer). See page 63 of the manual.
Let me know if that helps.

SOURCE: Subwoofer plug broken?
Most likely the plug is ok but the level control for the subwoofer will need to be readjusted in the receiver, If the level cannot be raised making sure your source being used has subwoofer information, then there could be a problem in that circuit.
