Sub connected center speaker does not work

Five speakers are connected to my sub. I've tested all five by moving it around and testing. All five works. When I connect them correctly, my center does not work. Someone at Best Buy told me it's either the receiver or the sub that's not working. What can I do to make it work.

    No, it does not work. I've clicked on the "5-channel stereo," I only hear four.

  • brettv Feb 29, 2008

    It does work. When I test it through the remote, it does may a brief, all be it small, sound.

  • brettv Feb 29, 2008

    I guess it depends on how one interprets it as "ever worked." Like mention above, it does make a small sound, and the other four speakers work, so I'm assuming the sub works.

  • brettv Feb 29, 2008

    When you disconnect all the speakers, and the TV is on, what should it sound like?

  • brettv Feb 29, 2008

    Cool song. So, the sub suppose to sound low like that, or are you just cutting some sarcasm. Just checking.

  • brettv Feb 29, 2008

    When I get home, I will disconnect all speakers, and the sub should sound like a regular tv.

    one question, what is the digital audio optical output, and what's it for?

Hmmm..that's a little weird..does the sub work on it's own? Is it powered? is it connected to right boost terminals ?

    ok..so the sub woofer has some serious issues..has it ever worked?

  • Patrick Michaels
    Patrick Michaels Feb 29, 2008

    well..the small squeaky sound from the sub woofer is NOT usual, as you might anticipate. That sucker has some serious driving power...I'm assuming you checked all connections? from both sides/

    let's just do this..disconnect all the speakers, and start with the sub only, and let's hear what that's go to say.

    like a regular tv, if the main speakers are installed and on. connect ONLY the sub, let's see what's going on with that first, ok?

SOURCE: Center speakers (connected to Sub) does not work

Ok all you do is screw your brain into tiny pieces and then take your *** and twist it until it breaks off. Then connect those two and mush them into liquid and put it in a wire on the center speaker. I have a lot of experience so please do it and trust me.

My sub wont come on. but all the outher speakers work fine . cant figure it out?


I assume this is connected to a AV Receiver? There is generally a low level sub out, with an RCA jack. That should go to your sub input. The old subs had the speaker outputs on the back of the receiver connected to the sub input, and all the other speakers were connected to the sub, but that system hasn't been used in decades.

Sunfire true subwoofer signature one 7.5A internal fuse keeps burning out. what are possible causes and how to repair?


If you have an ohm meter (resistance) test for 7-8 ohms across each set of speaker leads to your sub woofer. Its likely you have blown speaker (load is causing amplifier to draw to much current) or just a bad amplifier in the sub (likely not worth $ repairing vs new). To test the sub woofer speaker itself you may have to take it apart to test its resistance.

Rear speakers not working


Your FM tuner will only generate sound from the front sepakers. CD's, Tape, and I guess mp3 player, as well, will only play through the front speakers.
I've included a link for the manual. The audio on this rig is pretty complex. read through the info, especially pages 11,12,13, and play with the audio controls.

I have a Pioneer xv dv55 . My sub or speakers are not working!


I've had mine for nine (9) years and it fine, first make sure all coloured wire are connected to the sub correctly, press sys on your remote then press button 8 to test if the speakers are working then increase the volume to hear the spaekers. so to link TV audio/sound with DVD press sys then A-2 on the DVD remote, I hope these will solve ur problem?

Lifestyle 30. sound stops, i unplug and plug back in and works for short time and quits. unpllug and plug back and works a short time and quits.


What you describe, sounds like a speaker short. Are you using the Bose wiring with their ends and no cuts in the wire? (splices) It's not too uncommon to extend or shorten a wire. The fastest way to find a short is to disconnect your speakers at the speaker. Be careful to keep the wires separate if they are not on plugs and turn on. If it cuts off (power) or says (protection) on the display that lets you know your speakers are ok and you have a short in the system or a wire. Next, disconnect wires at the sub one by one and test until it causes the system to cut off or short. Leave that speaker disconnected from the sub and test with all others connected. Now you've located the channel that has the problem. First just connect the wire again to the sub. if it cuts out, run a new wire from the sub to the spkr, for testing purposes make it a short wire if possible and test. If you need to use a Bose plug at the sub to test spkrs go buy one at Bose, don't cut your factory wire just yet. If a new plug works then cut and replace. Make sure you use electrical tape not scotch tape or duct tape. If it works fine, test the new plug on the old wire and see if it works. If it does your done, if it doesn't, run a new wire to the speaker with the new plug on it. If after all this and it still doesn't work. Sounds confusing I know, It's just process of elimination, that's how we do it in the field. If all your speakers are disconnected and it still cuts out, it could be the sub or the receiver. Take it to a Bose store and they can check each piece for functionality. If it needs repaired let Bose do it. Hope this helps.

Possible broken speaker


You must determine if subwoofer amp or speaker are bad.Take the good surround speaker and move it to the bad side.If the good speaker does not produce audio the the amplifer is bad.If you use the good speaker in either surround output and it works then your speaker is bad.If you take the small speaker apart the panasonic part number is stamped on the magnet.Locate a service center that will order it for you.

No Connection to Some of the Speakers...


Solved Problem! Hold down test/setup for 2 seconds, then cycle through and add each speaker back into the setup. Happened to me, it must have reset somehow. That's how you fix it!
