Question about Audio & Video Receivers
I recently purchased an Onkyo TX-SR805 receiver and can not get any sound from my subwoofer. Tried Audessy auto speaker set up and sub was not detected. Tried all possible connections and sub does not deliver sound. Blue light is on however. Sub worked perfectly fine a few days ago with Pioneer receiver. Any suggestions on settings, work arounds, solution, etc?
I made the same mistake when i hooked my REL sub up to the back of the 805.
The problem is there are 2 connectors on the back of the amp that are labeled as sub out. Look very closely, you will see that there are 2 grouped RCA outs. The RCA out group you are looking for differentiated by groups of "little white dots" all the way to the far right on the back of the amp. Hope this helps.

Talked to tech support at Onkyo and there seems to be two (2) places you can hook your sub up to. I placed mine in the wrong slot. So please double check where you placed the sub connection.

I had the same problem which was solved as follows: there are two subwoofer outputs on the back of the TX-SR805 receiver; when looking at the back of the receiver, try the one on the right (both are labelled subwoofer). Audessy auto speaker setup then recognized the subwoofer.

Looking at the back of the sr805, there is a second subwoofer output, this one is the preout. 4 rca jacks to the right of the non-preout subwooker. Moved it, and all works now.

Register and download the manual for free at retrevo.com
At the Onkyo, check to make sure you have run the speaker setup starting on Page 40. If that doesn't work...
Disconnect the subwoofer pre-out at the Onkyo and move it to the VCR Out, tune an FM station and be ready for some real loud subwoofer output if your sub has no volume control of its own. If you can hear the sub, it works and it's back to the Onkyo. If not, the unnamed sub
