Pioneer VSX-505S Subwoofer Installation

I have just purchased a subwoofer and want to install it into my stereo system. The receiver is a Pioneer VSX-505S. On the back, there is a pre-out for a subwoofer, but no specific wire jacks that are labeled as such. The subwoofer plugs in using standard speaker wires, but I am not sure where to plug it in. On the back of the receiver, there are jacks for two sets of front speakers (a and b), one set of rear speakers, and one middle speaker. Which of these would the subwoofer plug in to?

    Same problem here, I have a subwoofer with only speaker wire inputs and out. My reciever has a subwoofer jack? I'm I missing something?

    You have to have a specific subwoofer that runs on the jack, a pioneer powered subwoofer s-w700 or s-w99 are examples. These don't receive power through the amp but plug intointo an electrical outlet. You're pioneer receiver doesn't power the woofer

That type of subwoofer is not used with this receiver. This receiver actually outputs no power for a subwoofer, therefore only needs a plain ol' rca signal wire. This is due to the fact that you need a powered sub... one that you plug in to the wall and it has its own built in amp. you simply run an rca from yyour 505s to that sub.

Where do my subwoofer speaker wires get hooked up to on the back of the reciver vsx-815 ??


Hi there, the Pioneer VSX-815 amplifier only feeds out a mono LINE LEVEL output with the subwoofer signal. Therefore you would need to connect the SUB PREOUT jack at the rear of the unit to the "line level input" on a self-powered subwoofer. Hope this helps.. Cheers, Yusuf

Have you looked in the manual?

No sound from subwoofer. • Make sure the subwoofer is switched on.
• If the subwoofer has a volume knob, make sure it’s turned up.
• The Dolby Digital or DTS source you are listening to may not have an LFE channel.
• Switch the subwoofer setting in Speaker Setting on page 40 to YES or PLUS.
• Switch the LFE Attenuator Setup on page 61 to LFEATT 0 or LFEATT 10.

Pioneer Elite vsx-27tx receiver with no bass!?


There may be a subwoofer mute function on your amp. The sub out is nothing more than a preamp output with a low frequency response. It is meant to be amplified by an external amp. Either check your powered subwoofer for operation or look through your operators manual for a sub mute function.

No Sound from Subwoofer


The original Pioneer subwoofer has its own amplifier built in to the speaker, so the only cable required on the original speaker is a single RCA cable. To connect a different brand subwoofer to the Pioneer you will have to make sure that you have a subwoofer with the same specs. It will need its own built in amp to work, as you can only connect it with one RCA
