Question about Denon AVR-1907 Receiver

Subwoofer playing in stereo sound


I recently purchased a subwoofer to hook in to my Denon 1907 receiver. I think I have everything set correctly, but I can't get an output to my subwoofer when I am in stereo sound. When I am in multi-channel sources the subwoofer plays, but when I switch the sound to stereo I get nothing out of it. Any ideas? Am I unlucky enough to have a receiver that won't output to a subwoofer when in stereo sound?

Re: Subwoofer playing in stereo sound

When Stereo was the only "2 channel audio output" available. We never had Sub-Woofers and relied upon Bass and Treble controls to give an overall balance and Bass Depth to suit one's preference.
A Bass Sub-woofer is intrinsically part of a Multi-channel audio system. It is the " .1" part of the 2.1, 5.1, 6.1 sound system/s.
That is why you do not get Woofer Signal and thus output, unless you use more than just "Stereo Audio Amplification".

In two channel mode, there will be no subwoofer signal unless you change the front speakers to 'small'. If you set the front speakers as 'large' then the full frequency spectrum will be sent to the front speakers, and none to the sub. Switching from bluray may keep the surround configuration until you restart as you mentioned.

My subwoofer is connected correctly (test mode it works fine). The Denon 589 receiver, however, when everything is set up and ready to go, doesnt seem to send any output to it, so there is no base sound. ...

What's the make and model of the subwoofer? It sounds like it's a passive (unpowered) speaker.

See page 9

I seriously doubt your test mode worked fine on the subwoofer level adjustmnent.

Get a powered (active) sub.

Subwoofer does not kick in during stereo mode with front speakers

There should be an adjustment in setup that for 2 channel sources, you may have to enable the subwoofer output. Or alternatively, if the subwoofer output for 2 channel sources is in fact enabled, then increase the crossover frequency for the sub.
