Low output on subwoofers

Hello and thanks for taking to time to read about my problem. A couple days ago I was driving on the highway and my car broke down. Well I had it towed to a repair shop and had the car fixed. Well I took out my subwoofer and amp when I left my car at the shop. Well the car was fixed, I put in the subs and amp, hooked everything up, and now I can not get any bass to come out of the subs. If you put your hand on the cones there is vibration, but the output is very low. I adjusted the gain, LPF settings, everything I can think of. There is power going to the amp. Any ideas?

You may have wired the sub backwards or it could be only somehow hooked into one channel instead of 2. I think this is a wiring problem.

CHECK
Wires on SUB - Make sure they are connected correctly
RCA leads to AMP

Onkyo dr s2.0 DVD receiver has subwoofer output but no other speakers have sound. I have experience with electronics. Is there fuses for the preamps and power outputs separate from the main in ?


Hello Todd, I would not suggest trying to repair this unit yourself. I suggest an authorized service but it might be difficult getting parts. Thank you, Onkyo USA

Hello, the problem can't be fixed in a couple of minutes, not even in a couple of hours, I recommend you to take the speaker system to an electronic technician to fix it for you, use a borrowed sound system while the other is repairing, and to avoid that problem from happening again turn it off whenever you don't need it.
Too bad I had to give you the bad news. I still wish you have a nice day.

You can prove the sub pre-output works by running an RCA cable from it to the input of a tape deck, TV or any other device that accepts Line In and will either display it or play it. Test it on VERY LOW volume at the receiving device.


Different sub pre-out cable?

HELLO HOW TO CONNECT SUBWOOFER TO SONY


It would depend a lot on what type of subwoofer you have and it wouldn't be pretty.

According to the manual I found it doesn't have a Woofer Output so it isn't designed to route Low Frequencies anywhere.

Even if you rigged an Active Subwoofer to it using the Tape Output you wouldn't have central volume control for it unless the (unnamed) Sub was driven by speaker-level outputs from the Front A or B Speaker posts on the receiver.

Your question would be better framed and answered if we knew the details of the Sub and referred to ITS manual.

Which capacitor or resister we use when connecting tweeter with subwoofer, or what do we connect to the subwoofer to get more bass ?


Hello johnwisam,

When using component speakers, it is normal to connect the head unit or amp outputs directly to the woofers and use a "high-pass" filter to the tweeters. Most component speakers sold as a set will include the correct filter along with wiring diagrams. The12volt.com web site shows examples of passive crossovers here.

Amps usually include built-in filters and a means of setting crossover frequencies according to the speakers attached. If the amp is connected to full-range speakers, it is set to "Full" or "BP". When used to drive subwoofer(s) only, the setting is most often "low-pass".

Most stock radios and aftermarket head units are relatively low power and just do not produce enough power output to drive subwoofers adequately. It takes more watts to move the larger cones and that usually means a separate amplifier.

Hope this helps.
