A lot of these systems have options for switching off speakers and subs. You should look up the speaker settings options of the Sony. If you have the manual see what it says about connecting an active sub.
Hello ,you will want to go into the setup mode on the remote and make sure the subwoofer is turned on,it might be turned off .You can view the setings right on the front of the reciever as your scrolling thru speaker setting options.
Problem is in the amplifier output stage...there is probably a shorted component...the short could have come from a bad speaker..or the speaker wires getting touched together while it was on...you could return to store if it is new and get a new one...maybe it was a return and accidentally got put back into stock
make sure sub is working .Power it up , remove sub RCA jacks from receiver .Gently tap on RCA with fingers.You should here a hum when touched .You can also try audio from TAPE REC OUT .If you dont get audio .Check setting at sub .If it working okay check setting at receiver and or sub level at receiver
Hello! Yes, you need to worry when a Sony gets hot!! You probably have replaced factory 8 ohm speakers with 4 ohm speakers. Look on the back of your new speakers and see what they are. Then look at the rear of your receiver by the speaker terminals and there will be a sentence like "8 Ohm minimum per channel". If your Sony says " 8 ohms " you need to use 8 ohm speakers. Also, are you a using low level signal ( audio out ) to drive your sub or are you using high level ( speaker line )??? I'd use low level. Good luck!!
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.
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
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.
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.
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!
