I have the Subwoofer plugged into the output and have it turned ON but it's still not working!

It only drives a self-powerd sub.

The manual...

Page 17:

Setting the Subwoofer Information

Register whether you have connected a subwoofer or not.

Before you start, remember....

• There is a time limit in doing the following steps. If the setting is canceled before you finish, start from step 1 again.

On the front panel ONLY:

1. Press SETTING repeatedly until "SUBWOOFER" appears on the display.

The display changes to show the current setting.

2. Press CONTROL UP / DOWN to select "YES" or "NO."

• Each time you press the button, the display alternates between "YES" and "NO."

YES: Select this when a subwoofer is connected.

NO: Select this when no subwoofer is used.


You cannot use SUBWOOFER OUT ON/OFF on the front panel (see page 14) and adjust the subwoofer output level (see below) when "SUBWOOFER" is set to "NO."

Then continue with setting its relative level and other things.

Display shows an "Overload" error. Was working just fine up to now

Hi Mobius,

Two things cause the overload warning.
  • High Volume
  • A short in one of the speakers.
Click here to view a downloadable copy of the manual. Refer to page 38.

Best regards

Subwoofer amplifier

Here's how I'd do it... connect the subwoofer pre-out to one of the unused analog inputs (CD or CD-R perhaps?). Turn on Zone 2 by pressing the MULTI-ZONE ON/OFF button. The MULTI-ZONE indicator will light.

Press CONTROL. (Zone 2 should display) Use the INPUT SELECTOR dial to select the source for the zone you have selected. In my example, CD or CD-R.

Of course, you'll need the sub hooked up to the Surround back speaker terminals.

Here's a link to the manual online:
Pioneer VSX-1018 Manual

Things to keep in mind:
The Surround Back setting must be set to ZONE 2. See page 41 of the manual.
The volume level going to the sub will probably need some tweaking. Check out page 7 to see how to manually adjust volume levels, or get it close by adjusting the Master Volume while in Zone 2 control.

I'm not sure if the auto setup function (with the included microphone) will work properly with this setup. And, of course, this is not a "suggested" setup by Pioneer, so please use caution when hooking everything up.

Good luck!

Overload flashs

there will be 6 amp circuit in your receiver. you can't unplug them one by one. with a multi-meter you may be able to find the shorted channel. (most JVC receivers use discrete circuits instead of an output IC) Check for shorted transistors attached to the heat sink. You will possibly find some open resistors also. Generally this is a job for a pro.

The audio amplifier IC of your device are damaged you gotta send to a repair center.

No, one of your speakers is damaged (could be an amp channel went bad, but speaker is more likely). Unplug all spkrs, then plug one in and see if it acts normal when turned up. Repeat this until all speakers are hooked up or the culprit spkr is found.

JVC RX-7000V

As per the instruction manual the overload is there because of high volume condidtions and your over heating the unit. They recomend to turn down the volume shut off the reciver wait a few minutes and turn back on the unit with lower volumes. Second it states that the peaker wires or speakers could be shorted so make sure the speakers are good and the wires when you connected them to the reciver are not shorted. If all is hooked up properly then you have a problem in the output stage of the amp and its gonna need service unless you know how to replace the defective output devices? If not Go online at the addy I give you to find about service parts or service manuals.. Good Luck
