How do i connect ms 10 sub to yamaha RX-V1065 amp, I am using 2 monster cables.

The ms 10 is an active sub, so all you should do is connect the Subwoofer output on the rear of your amp to the LFE input on the sub with a simple audio cable.

Hook up lower level input to the audio source 230 subwoofer but can't get any sound for the speaker that is hook up through the speaker level input or output.

The speaker level connectors on the sub are for use when you DON'T have an AV receiver-style subwoofer output. They only pass-through from YOUR amp to other speakers. You should NOT use both Line level and Speaker Level input to the sub.

What is your electronics? Have you looked at the manuals?

Apart from the "line input"

input and output are for low level ( as with RCA cable connectors) ,, the speaker connections are for high input, (red and black connections. ) you can run the mains to the (rca) from your receiver to run the sub woofers, and from that use the speaker wire connections, to go to the left right speakers, (out only not in) this is done if you want to run the subs and the Rt/lt/ speakers , eliminating the speaker connections coming from the receiver. which you could use for 2 additional speakers if you want

How to hookup

if u want to hook up the sub with ur av receiver the connect the sub woofer output of ur AVR to any one (left or right) input of ur sub woofer. then connect its power . set the frequency range between 90 and 120Hz. set the volume of sub woofer to 40% of its total. also check the av receives speaker setting. goto speaker setup and make ON the sub woofer out.

if want to connect the sub to a stereo amp without sub out. then connect the amps speaker line to the speaker input of sub woofer and connect the speaker out of sub to left and right speaker ( make sure to connect the red to red and black to black). set the volume and frequency as above

From reciever output to sub input only load hum.but if connected to input does work some. also if you move around RCA input connection hum will stop, and you will get some bass

You have a RCA input short, replace with new monster RCA cables tighten any screws, unit would need internal soldering possibly. You may need to get Serviced or fix on your own.

DSW PRO 600 not getting signal from receiver. Why?

You don't name the electronics, which can be the source of the problem. See #3.

1. If you suspect the cable why don't you just swap in another RCA cable? BTW: there's no such thing as a "subwoofer" cable. Monster makes their money on those beliefs. Cables don't wear out but they can go bad if one or more conductors fails. Oxides devolp at either end which can inhibit conductivity. Remove each end and reinsert it with a twisting motion.

2. Maybe. You need to ensure the sub is defined. Run speaker level check. If no sound at the sub, prove the LFE/sub channel has output by running the RCA cable to a recorder or your TV (low volume). If there's no signal, duh, no speaker will work with it.

3. Mmm, not if it's exhibiting the same problem as the old one and the Polk 450. Have you looked at the setting of the Standby/Auto/On Switch? And the Power Mode LED's? Red is bad.

I have had my subwoofer for 6 years. It has always

One way to check the operation is to connect a source directly to the inputs of the sub.

A CD player will work fine. Connect the out puts of the CD player to the inputs on the sub. Play a CD.

If you get music from the sub, then no problems with sub.

If nothing, sub has problem.

Could be

A Dead amp.

A Dead speaker.

Velodyne products usually need to be returned to them for service.

Cost is unknown.

Sub works then turns off

You're dancing around the clues. The position of the monster cable seems to affect it. What shuts off - the receiver (need to know make/model) or the sub? Just connect the cable deep enough to make contact with the metal parts you can see of the clips and/or binding posts. Don't let any conductor touch more than one metal surface. Now what?

How is it attached - RCA cables or speaker output from the receiver? Need specific info to make a good diagnosis.

The time factor is curious. Again, what's turning off? The receiver? There should be no reason for it to overload since it just supplies either Line Level to the sub amp's Low Pass Input or speaker level to the sub's Speaker In terminals. Are you slaving your Front Speakers out the back of the sub or are they on the receiver? Experiment with them disconnected.

JBL d110 /w no sound output

There is a standby indication that activates after 10-15 minutes without any input signal. I suspect that might be what the red light is telling you - no signal.

Loud hum from a loosened cable is normal as hum usually means there's an ungrounded connection somewhere acting as an antenna and the amp is doing its job to amplify what it thinks is a signal, in this case 60hz stray ac current is being sensed nearby. It's a good sign that you get hum from the sub because that means the amp is alive.

Avoid manipulating cable connections with the Sub or Receiver turned on as you could introduce a static spike that could harm any connected equipment.

Are you certain a bass signal is making it into the sub? The complexities of modern AV receivers vary in how you configure them to direct LFE to a sub. Bone up on that end of the chain.

Or, just hang a CD player on the Inputs of the sub and play something with a reassonable amount of Low Frequencies.

>>>> Be advised that this way of testing has NO VOLUME CONTROL because amps without volume controls always operate at maximum gain, relying on your external controls to attentuate it (hence, the loud hum from a loose cable); so choose a track that eases into the loud parts with some quiet parts up front and BE READY TO PAUSE THE PROGRAM AT ANY SIGNS OF STRESS. <<<<

A living sub will produce only muffled rumble in the absence of other speakers producing the higher frequencies which carry the intelligence of the signal. If that works, back to the receiver for settings. If not... sigh.


For hum problems, even those you cause yourself:

Disconnect all inputs to see if that helps. If it goes away start with the signal cables and add in things until it comes back.

Sometimes the reversing the orientation of the AC plug can help with hum. Or it could be something like a loose or high resistance connection internal to the sub. Good luck.
