Question about Yamaha RX-V661 Receiver
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 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.

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.
