Center speakers (connected to Sub) 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.

    What does that mean, Phantom? I will be going downstairs to check whether i have a phantom option set.

    My home theater system, with the all-in-one receiver, including tuner, DVD and audio, doesn't seem like it has a "phantom" option.

    In fact I do have a Dolby Pro Logic option. Please tell me more about the "phentom" setting. How does it work and where can I see it in order to make my sub work.

    A tech expert at FixYa last night told me to disconnect all my speakers and see if my sub works. He said it should sound like your normal tv. I did that last night, and my sub was terrible. Maybe subs are not suppose to sound like normal tv, but this one wasn't working too well.

Do you have the "Phantom" option set on your receiver? That will give you these symptoms on Dolby Prologic...accordianman

    Do you have a DOLBY PRO-LOGIC option on your set? If so , you have a "phentom" setting.

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.

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.

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.

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!
