First of all you should never indicate speakers as Large unless they can produce below 20Hz (which is very low), otherwise always set your speakers to Small.
Second, did you also indicate in teh setupmenu that you have a subwoofer? Because if all speakers are set to Large some receivers will omit a subwoofer because Large indicates the speakers can reproduce all sounds even below 20Hz.
So walk through your setup menu, say YES when the sub (SFW) is asked for and that should do the trick.

Clarify, did it ever work for you? Were both receivers used properly configured for the subwoofer? Did you also test the other speaker moduels running off the subwooferto see if they work?

Model number of the Lux? The only unknown to me regarding the answer is if the Lux speakers are designed for non-Lux attachment. If there are molded connectors on their leads I would be cautious as that is usually the manufacturer's subltlke clue that you really don't want toi mix them with other makers. If they're bare wire I think you're ok.
The impedance selector on the receiver supports minimum 4-ohm front and 6-ohm center and rear, so you'd be marginal on those last two, but barring excessive high volumes I'd think it would work. The powered sub is supported and its impedance spec is irrelevant.
Just curious, is this an upgrade in electronics? From what?
