Yes you can! I have the 405 as well. Using a RCA-style cable, simply connect your powered sub to the sub pre out on the back. If its turning off when you connect it and receiver has been working fine otherwise, troubleshoot. Either the sub preout (the 405 itself), the cable or the sub must be the culprit. 1st try a different cable, they do go bad. If problem persists, test the sub with another receiver or take back to store and have them test it. After that, the only thing left in the equation is the receiver itself. I've had mine for 15 years and lets face it, we've got our money's worth. A bad receiver is the best excuse to upgrade!

How to hook up a Kenwood subwoofer to a pioneer receiver


It depends on the speaker and receiver inputs/outputs. If The speakers have bare wires, and the receiver has spring clamps, you are in luck! Check out what I mean by spring clamps in the image linked below. If you can give the model number of the receiver and describe the wires coming from the subwoofer, I can help a lot more.

Can I hookup a powered subwoofer to a Kenwood 105VR receiver?


Had you bought the 106 version that has a subwoofer out socket. Some subwoofers have options for connection by speaker terminals. If you haven't bought the subwoofer yet check with the seller to make certain you can connect it via speaker wires. Otherwise you would be better with a non powered one.

Josh, define the 'backfeeding' of the digital audio from the two HD components into Video 1. Those are ANALOG inputs on the VR405. You have two coaxial- and one optical-digital audio input you could/should be using.

I'm surprised you're getting ANY audio (much less digital audio) from the BD and Cable Boxes unless you also have an analog audio path coming in from (what?) the TV.

I am simply trying to hook up the stock sub that came with this product vr 357. I don't see an input on the tuner do I need an amp of some sort or am I missing something


I think you're missing the manual(s).

http://www.retrevo.com/support/Kenwood-VR-357-Receivers-manual/id/480dj197/t/2/
describes how to use a >> powered << subwoofer with the VR-357.

Speakers are OUTPUT devices. As far as the manual goes there is no STOCK subwoofer with this receiver. What's yours and does it have a manual which might answer your question?

Connect a Sony SA-W3800 powered subwoofer to a kenwood receiver


Yes. It needs to know you have a subwoofer or it won't send low frequencies out to one. Then you have to calibrate its level to match the rest of your speakers. Hit the SETUP section in the manual (available at retrevo.com).

Remote control not working...


I'm not sure of the exact fix, but when these components were assembled a few of the connections involving the remote sensor were not saudered. An easy fix if you know where to look.
