Question about Yamaha HTR-5990 Receiver

Open Question

No real booming base on my Yamaha HTR 5900

Since it was Brand new and I cannot seem to get any real base out of the subwoofer. The test tone sound ok. I assume I am doing something wrong on hookup but can't find out what.

    What speaker mode do you listen to? It's got to be one of the modes that includes the subwoofer channel. Try it on the different movie modes.

I own this receiver, and 18db is damn loud. Granted - your room might be significantly larger than mine with your speakers spread much further apart, or your speakers might be much less efficient than mine (this means that they want more power than the receiver can dish out - I have whatever speakers came with the "YAMAHA Home Theater in a Box" [the model that came with the HTR-5830]), but I'm pretty sure that the receiver doesn't get any louder (or at least not much). My suggestion is to turn down the volume to about -20db and work up from there after the movie has started. It might be easier to test the volume using music. The negative sign is deceiving - I rarely bring mine up to 0db. Also check the resistance - there's a red switch on the back of the receiver that switches between 6 and 8 ohms - make sure that it matches your speakers' resistance. If turning down the volume doesn't work, then post the problem again. Hope This Helps.

SOURCE: Connecting a Yamaha VX7 Subwoofer on my Yamaha HTR 5730 AV Receiver

Hello srqwrk,

You can connect the VX7 to the 5730 using an RCA Y cable like the one shown in the picture below. You get your one connection for the receiver and 2 for the VX7. These are available at any electronics store. Remember that the cable should be long enough to go from the receiver to where subwoofer will be placed.
Hope this helps. Let me know.

SOURCE: subwoofer

the best connection is to connect your sub to the output connector (subwoofer) of your HTR. it should have one. But you can also connect parallel to the speakers, any of right or left speakers or both. i normally connect to the speaker set B if thorugh the speaker connections.

SOURCE: Yamaha HTR-6130 Front right and left speakers with no sound

As simple as this sounds, try hitting the speaker a/b button on the front of the unit, next to the headphone jack. I had the same problem, and was about to package the whole thing back up and go back to Best Buy when I hit this button and then the audio test worked.

My HTR 3063 is not producing any sound


The YPAO isn't on the 3063 model. only 4063 and up. If this is used and you can't get your money back, there is a firmware file here http://download.yamaha.com/search/product/?language=en&site=ca.yamaha.com&product_id=1436250 that can help get your receiver running correctly.

Strangely enough, that message is NOT documented in the HTR-3063 manual, but in another Yamaha manual (HTR-5063) it means the speaker being tested is believed to be Out of Phase, meaning wired incorrectly.

There is no sound coming out of the subwoofer


I assume it's an active subwoofer, since it hums. Did you activate sub in the receiver menu? Did you turn up the volume on the sub?

Subwoofer doesnt work


New sub (never worked) or sudden failure (after it used to work)?

Type of sub? Has to be self-amplified (active).

Have you read the manual? You can find it on Retrevo.com. Just register and download it.

Did you define the Sub properly (SWFR or BOTH) in the SET Menu (page 42)?

Did it produce the test tone (Page 21)?

If all of these are done and the sub still doesn't work, maybe the sub is defective. Connect a CD player analog output to it to prove it can produce sounds.

Surround speakers work in test mode but won't come on during play


Check that you set it to Pro logic and check the speaker set-up. Set it to 5.1 Sounds like somthing is in the wrong setting.
