Here is a link to your manual:
http://www.pioneer.co.uk/uk/products/archive/VSX-AX4AVi-S/media.html
looks to be an auto calibration the mcacc turned on during the testing and setup phase. you could always put the mcacc in manual mode and go through the settins yourself. Just be aware that the setting you are talking about controls the level of you dialog channel and lowing might cause you to have less ability to hear low dialog.

Cheers!

Pioneer VSX D903S ...HOW do i adjust the rear speaker volume....it is currently much too low


You make surround channel adjustments using the on-screen GUI interface. This can be done either by using the remote (recommended), or by using the appropriate controls on the receiver. [The GUI mode is active when the GUI button and the ring surrounding the Multi-Jog dial is glowing amber.]

I have a pioneer vsx-d704s reciever and when it is at a very low to 0 volume i get a low level scratching only on the left side. im not sure if it goes away when i turn it up or not but i dont think so


The volume knob is dirty. Behind the face of receiver the "pot", (as they are called) needs sprayed with contact cleaner. I use CRC QD contact cleaner. If the volume is a slider your can use the straw type devise for pin point spraying in the slider slot with receiver off and unplugged. After spraying work the slider back and forth to distribute the cleaner inside. If you have to remove the cover for a rotary "pot"spray while working the dial. Hope that helps..

My pioneer VSX-1016 shuts itself off during loud portions of a movie. I have checked the speaker wiring and have clean connections. Any other ideas?


Yes, evaluate the load presented to its amplifiers by the speakers. If you have any speakers running parallel on the amps instead of one per amp channel you could be experiencing temporary unacceptable drops in impedance.

and

From page 57 in the manual...

• Turn down the volume.

• Lower the 40 Hz and 125 Hz equalizer levels in the Manual MCACC setup on page 34.

• Try switching on the digital safety feature (put the receiver into standby, hold down the SYSTEM SETUP button on the front panel and press STANDBY/ON to switch between SAFETY ON and SAFETY OFF

. If the power switches off even with SAFETY ON selected, turn down the volume.

Denon AVR 1910 Volume Level


My Pioneer VSX-36TX (circa 2002) does the same thing. Modern AVR's count up from minus something to 0db and go just a few db higher into 'plus' territory. It seems arbitrary but that's how it is.

Ask yourself this: who ever really turned the volume knob up to maximum on any amp on purpose, and had speakers survive it? In other words, why have all that capacity on a potentiometer if you never use it?

Little known fact: With that in mind, Bose Corp actually designed a product that intentionally used the full physical travel of a volume control - the Bose Acoustic Wave Music System.

Subwoofer amplifier


Here's how I'd do it... connect the subwoofer pre-out to one of the unused analog inputs (CD or CD-R perhaps?). Turn on Zone 2 by pressing the MULTI-ZONE ON/OFF button. The MULTI-ZONE indicator will light.

Press CONTROL. (Zone 2 should display) Use the INPUT SELECTOR dial to select the source for the zone you have selected. In my example, CD or CD-R.

Of course, you'll need the sub hooked up to the Surround back speaker terminals.

Here's a link to the manual online:
Pioneer VSX-1018 Manual

Things to keep in mind:
The Surround Back setting must be set to ZONE 2. See page 41 of the manual.
The volume level going to the sub will probably need some tweaking. Check out page 7 to see how to manually adjust volume levels, or get it close by adjusting the Master Volume while in Zone 2 control.

I'm not sure if the auto setup function (with the included microphone) will work properly with this setup. And, of course, this is not a "suggested" setup by Pioneer, so please use caution when hooking everything up.

Good luck!
