Question about Yamaha RX-V661 Receiver

2 Answers

Yamaha RX-V661 no sound subwoofer

I purchased a Jamo subwoofer, connected it to my Yamaha RX-V661 receiver, powered it up, then programmed MANUAL SETUP - SOUND MENU - SPEAKER SET - LFE/BASS OUT = BOTH, CROSSOVER = 80HZ, SUBWOOFER PHASE = NORMAL. I get nothing out of the speaker, (except a bassy 'pop' when I turn the receiver off).

    Thanks for your help. As requested, the model number of the speaker is Jamo SUB 200 (8" woofer, 22 k ohm impedence, frequence range 36 - 150 Hz). Does this info change tyour recommeded solution?

    I am still getting no sound out of the sun woofer. And can not work out how to disable the LFE on the receiver.

  • stuart_garla Dec 15, 2009

    I can confirm the sub woofer is working (tested it using an MP3 player as suggested). Any other suggestions?

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. To reset the subwoofer unplug the system for more than 5 minutes and after that test the speaker using another device. You can plug one end of a RCA female to Mini-plug male adaptor into the headphone output jack of devices like a CD player or MP3 player. Now plug the other into either ‘line in’ RCA jacks on the sub to determine if the problem is with the subwoofer or the soundcard drivers.

To perform the Direct CD Test for subwoofer to check whether the problem is a simple cable or level-setting. Use a different set of RCA connector cables and then connect the analog audio out from a CD player or DVD player directly into the subwoofer's LINE IN connections. Then, turn the volume level on the subwoofer down to the lowest. While playing a CD, raise the volume level on the subwoofer and now you should hear the bass portion from the source material. If still the issue persists, then the issue may be a blown woofer or sub amplifier. If the subwoofer functions correctly, then the issue may be with a cable, the receiver and/or a level setting.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Rylee

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, postback with the model number of the Jamo subwoofer.

Offhand, on most Jamo subwoofer, it has its own LFE adjustment marked CUT OFF. This then would duplicate the internal LFE / 80Hz cutoff of the Yamaha and result to a system that is over BASSed or canceling each other.

Suggestion would be to try, disabling the built-in LFE of the Yamaha or connect the Jamo's to FRONT PREOUT.

Alternately, power the Jamo and touch the tips of the RCA to RCA cable / plug to determine if the sub would have a humming sound. If yes, then the sub is functional, if not then the sub has an internal problem.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

    Appreciate your postback and additional information.

    On your subsequent query "...Does this info change tyour recommeded solution?...", on the contrary, it validates the the existence of dual LFEs; 80Hz at the Yamaha's sub output and the adjustable 36 (40) Hz to 150 Hz of the Jamo's input and therefore the proposed solution would hold true.

    The proposed alternative test of touching the RCA plugs tip would still work to determine that the Jamo is functional.

    Have you touched the tips of the RCA plug leading to the Jamo? If yes, was there any humming sound? If none, then the possibility is that the Jamo is faulty.

Hi.

Looks like the the unit is locked to region 1.

The Yamaha receiver you listed is region free, therefore I assume you are talking about a different unit, in that case give model please.

If you have the problem with a Yamaha RX-V661, then simply disconnect power cord for ten minutes. And disconnect from power all devices connected to the receiver.
This should reset the system.

Let me know in case it does not work.

Regards.

Subwoofer plug broken?


Most likely the plug is ok but the level control for the subwoofer will need to be readjusted in the receiver, If the level cannot be raised making sure your source being used has subwoofer information, then there could be a problem in that circuit.

RX-V661 Receiver


your receiver has zone 2 output which is operated independently of the main reciever. so you can have a dvd playing inthe main reciever and the tuner playing over the intercom. read about it in your manual page 89. in will hook up to 2 RCA jacks in the back Zone 2 out.
