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

SOURCE: rx-v463, no sound from rear speakers, and hookups

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.

SOURCE: No Soound on Subwoofer from Yamaha RX-V363

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

Two possibilities:
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.

Simple things first:

Is it powered on? (sorry, I know that's too elementary)
Is it connected properly? (you have a cable securely plugged into your receiver's subwoofer line level output and securely plugged into the subwoofer in in the subwoofer)
Is your system configured properly to send a signal to your subwoofer?
  • Does your receiver have a menu system you can use to manually configure your speakers?
  • If it does, have you told your system that you have a subwoofer?
  • If it does, have you set your other speakers to "small" (believe it or not, even with full-sized floor standing speakers this is a good practice)? Sometimes, if the other speakers are set to Large, an AV receiver may not output a subwoofer signal.
  • Check all the rest of your receiver's speaker parameters through its menu system.
  • On your subwoofer, do you have the Level turned all the way off?
  • Where is the cut-off frequency set? (if it's set too low, and your source material doesn't go down that low, you may not hear anything through it)

Is the cable good? (use a multimeter to check)
Is the receiver outputting a signal through the subwoofer out port? (again, use a multimeter to check)

That's all I can come up with for now. Good luck.

Where to connect subwoofer


The subwoofer has its own RCA output on the back of the receiver and needs to be plugged by RCA cable from the receiver to the sub. This would be for an "active subwoofer" with its own amplifier and crossover that needs to be plugged into the wall.

Subwoofer


Yes. In the back of the receiver, there should be an RCA line level subwoofer output. All home theatre receivers should have it. All you do is plug an RCA cable into the line subwoofer out, and plug it into the input on the subwoofer. Then, the front channels will be free for the front speakers.

I am trying to hook up a powered sub woofer to a yamaha rx-v461 and i dont know what cables go where on the back of the sub there are two speaker ports and there are two plug ins but each speaker port has...


Your subwoofer probably has both high-power inputs and "normal"low inputs. The first are for receivers, which don't have link-level output for sub, so they are able to take already amplified signal as input.
You need to use link-level input of your sub and connect it to subwoofer-output of your receiver. The output is marked as OUTPUT - Subwoofer and is black-color RCA plug (don't confuse with subwoofer INPUT under MULTI CH INPUT).
Receiver has only mono output for subwoofer. If your sub has stereo input (white/red RCA plugs), connect just the left channel to the receiver, it will still work.
Don't connect anything to the speaker output on the sub, you don't need that.

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.

No sound out of subwoofer


Connection from receiver subwoofer output jack RCA plug male go into your powered subwoofer low level input with other end of cable, then you need to select Subwoofer YES/NO on the JVC receiver speaker setup menu option, select YES if this is a powered subwoofer you are using, should power up the subwoofer, may have to adjust a test tone balance for multi speaker output also, try trimming up on the subwoofer channel to initiate the signal on if the sub has an auto-on feature.

Speaker wire for subwoofer


Usually, a subwoofer will have its own built-in power amplifier. Thus, it will be designed to plug into a standard RCA jack (the type used for DVD players, etc). rather than having wires to connect to a speaker terminal block. Look for a jack on the back of the receiver called "Subwoofer", or simply "SW". If your subwoofer has 2 single wires, it WON'T work with your reveiver's subwoofer output, as this output only carries a line-level signal and is not amplified. You would need a separate power amplifier for this type of SW. If your SW speaker has a DVD-type plug, it should work fine with the receiver's SW output jack.

Pioneer VSX-505S Subwoofer Installation


That type of subwoofer is not used with this receiver. This receiver actually outputs no power for a subwoofer, therefore only needs a plain ol' rca signal wire. This is due to the fact that you need a powered sub... one that you plug in to the wall and it has its own built in amp. you simply run an rca from yyour 505s to that sub.
