Nowhere in the manual for the DR-110 does it say whether the sub-woofer should be active or passive but, on their website, it says the unit "powers" the 6 speakers. I've connected a SONY passive subwoofer but it doesn't work. Does anybody know if it needs to be active? Thanks

H?, You have a very good system...one of the best of SONY..SUB does not get activated automatically especially on STEREO mode.DIRECT STEREO Notes • No sound will be output from the subwoofer. .your system has Dedicated Power Amplifier for 2 Externally Driven Sub-Woofers (200W RMS x 2)..in order to activate the sub woofer amplifier you need to make a selection on the surround modes while
you are switching the modes of the surround you will see the speaker
position on the display of receiver as well..if you do not see the sub
woofer it wont be activated..Sound Field Program (A.F.D) is a good
example to test it.. Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up for Helping out the Community :) Hope this helps! -------------------- Additionally please follow the instruction on your user manual to activate the SUB ,as is follows.. ----------------- BASS-OUT
Low-frequency (bass) signals can be directed to the
subwoofer and/or the front left and right speakers
according to the characteristics of your system. This
setting also determines the routing of the LFE (low-
frequency effect) signals found in Dolby Digital or DTS
Choices: SWFR (subwoofer), FRONT, BOTH
• Select SWFR if you connect a subwoofer. LFE and
low-frequency signals from other channels are directed
to the subwoofer according to the speaker settings.
• Select FRONT if you do not use a subwoofer. LFE and
low-frequency signals from other channels are directed
to the front speakers according to the speaker settings
(even if you have previously set the front speakers to
• Select BOTH if you connect a subwoofer and you want
to output low-frequency signals from front channels to
both the front speakers and subwoofer. LFE and low-
frequency signals from other channels are also directed
to the subwoofer according to the speaker settings. Use
this function to reinforce low-frequency signals using
the subwoofer when playing back sources such as CDs.
Hi, I assume that the sub-woofer is "POWERED TYPE" ..otherwise if it is a PASSIVE type you can not.. So,if it has a power plug for 110 VAC it is "powered type" ..Than you need to find out the AUDIO output 2xRCA plugs of your TV on the back and connect it to the 1x RCA input of Sub...you need a "Y type RCA cable " to make 2x stereo output of TV into the 1x MONO input RCA jacks for sub..Than while listen TV your sub will work too but you need volume adjustment once on the sub controls (if it is a Powered ) Take care and if it succeeds please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up for Helping out the Community :) Hope this helps! .....
Setting the RX-V861 remote control to operate Zone 2:
Using a ballpoint pen or similar object and press the [CODE SET] button RX-V861 remote control. The[TRANSMIT INDICATOR]on the remote should flash twice.
Using the [NUMERICAL KEY PAD] on the remote and key in 9992, the [TRANSMIT INDICATOR] should flash.

Press the [RETURN] button on the remote control to exit out and return to the Manual Setup.
NOTES: There is an option for setting the Maximum Volume and Initial Volume in the Zone Set menu.
Max Volume: This is an optional feature but isrecommended to prevent the accidental change in volume levels thatcould damage the speakers and receiver.
Initial Volume: This is also a great feature that would seamlessly start the volume level for the second or third zone at the desired level.
We do not recommend using any Speaker Selector boxes to enable more than the recommended number of speakers per terminal. Controlling Zone 2 using the RX-V861 remote control:
If the Main Zone on the receiver is on, press the [POWER BUTTON]down and while holding that button down press the [PHONO]/[**] button on the remote. The [TRANSMIT INDICATOR] will light up.
You will not be able to use the following buttons on the remote: (Pressing any other button will cause the remote to exit Zone 2 mode. [POWER], [STANDBY], [VOLUME], [MUTE] and the [INPUT SELECTOR] buttons [DVD], [CD], etc.)
There are the instructions as written straight from yamaha. If you need any further assistance please let me know. Thank you, Lee
hi, steps to trouble shoot for sub-woofer detection : 1. please check whether the cord is securely connected at both the ends. 2. check if there is transmission through the cord (there'll be a small static through the cord if there is transmission.) 3. reset the dvd-player to default audio-output and then choose the 5.1 sound system which is the correct setting for the th-c6. 4. also check the settings in the th-c6 whether it is in 5.1 mode(whether it includes the woofer-as it can also simple use the stereo speakers) 5. now check the sound output in all speakers by playing any original home-theatre system enabled dvd.
the system will work perfectly if the cord is in good condition, otherwise please replace the cord again, and this time check it at the store. cheers
the reciever should have a "subwoofer level" setting, or a "bass level control" If you cannot find this then try to place the "sub-woofer" away from walls and elevate it from the floor. This will reduce it's loudness/ intensity at annoying frequencies...
unless there are some other connectors that may be used, i would think that the issue would be resolvable thru the system settings menu, there may be a speaker arrangement setting somewhere in the menus. The Sub is a .1 setting like 5.1 or 7.1, perhaps even 2.1 where the beginning number is the speaker channels and .1 is the sub. I would think with the sub being on a mono channel it woul/should work with any setting. If there is any more info you could supply I will further research this issue and try to help you get the sub working.
