    Hi. Thanks for the reply. Connected the sub into adjacent Pre-out, and yes it worked. However tried it back in the sub-out and ensured set up see's the sub, and no joy!. Tried speaker calibration, where the receiver sends out tone to the speakers one at a time, and the sub is silent in the Sub-out and the working Pre-out? Does this pin it down to a fault with the receiver?

Hook the subwoofer RCA input cable to one of the other Pre-Outs. It won't sound GOOD but it will prove if the sub still works.

Then, if the Sub is alive, reconnect it to the Sub Out.
Get into the SETUP and make sure the Onkyo still knows you have a sub and do all the setup for the speakers.

    Yes, the receiver is where the problem lies. I guess the next step would be a trip to a shop. But I think it's unlikely that only the sub channel would die as it really isn't being stressed any more than the rest at the Line Level it processes.

Can i hook up my bose model ps38 powered sub to onkyo reciever


Why not. A speaker system should work with anything that produced sound meant for a speaker.
Don't you think?
find the woofer out on the onkyo and connect the bose sub-woofer there.
Seems pretty simple. If you don't think so, go hide in a closet.
NOW!

How can I hook up BIC F12 subwoofer to Onkyo TX-DS838 receiver? Will the receiver power the subwoofer and other speakers?


Get a RCA cable and connect from your amp where it said Sub Woofer in the Pre Out box in the back of the amplifier top left hand side and take it to the "Sub In" located in the back of your Sub woofer bottom right hand (White round connector).
Good Luck!

No subwoofer sound


Odds are that your woofer is blown. That or your outputs failed in the power stage of your sub. Pretty sure your receiver is fine.

I have an onkyo reciver and 7.1 speaker system. The powered sub-woofer keeps timing out and when I run the automatic speaker test on the reciever, it does not see the sub-woofer. I checked the reciver...


I assume you mean the subwoofer remains silent during the test. Perhaps the subwoofer is where we should be looking.

If you jack it into one or both of the Tape Out connectors and play some music with substantial low bass, does it make any sound? This would at least prove it is alive.

I wish to reduce the level of sound coming from the sub woofer. I cannot get the main menu up on screen by pressing reciever setup buttons. I have seen it done by a freind so I know it is possible what am...


On your remote control, first press the "RECEIVER" button followed by the "SETUP" button.

Here is a link to the user manual (bottom right corner of page): http://www.eu.onkyo.com/products/TX-SR605.html

From page 70 onwards it is explained how to set up the speaker levels.

Alternatively you could of course adjust the volume on the subwoofer itself. Most (active) subwoofers nowadays offer an output volume adjustment.

Good luck.

Onkyo TX-SV525 Receiver subwoofer pre out no sound


Yes turing on the "A" speaker is required for the Onkyo, but that only turns on the 2 front speakers in the "A" speaker jacks.

You may also need to check and see if the Onkyo has a menu selection in the setup menu that will turn on the sub woofer output on the back of the receiver.

I have seen on countless occasions where people just have a hard time finding that sub woofer option on their receiver.

I do not have the manuals for this Onkyo, so I can not tell you the exact way to find it.

I have been repairing surround receivers since they have been on the market and beleive me, you are not alone in this situation.

Sometimes it seems like you need a Phd. in programming or something similar just to firgure out how to set one of these up.

The solution should be in your owners manual, with the problem then being, just where in the manual. Go slowly thru it paying the closest attention to anything about set up procedures.

I have also seen at times where the setup for the sub-woofer is not listed as sub-woofer, but as "LFE" (low frequency effect) . So keep your eyes open for that.

something else, your sub woofer may have an auto turn on. That means it will only turn on if it detects an input signal. Make sure yo uhave the volume up enough on the receiver to trigger that auto turn on if yours has one.

I would like to have been more help, but without the manuals I can only give you general type thngs to look for. These type of receivers are all so different and all so complicated to operate. The days of just turning on a stereo, selecting your source and turning up the volume seem to be over.

Let me know if you need any more assistance from me.

Dave

p.s. Very nice system you have, when you get the Kef working I think you are going to just love this system. and Onkyo has the best quality receivers in their price range.
