Power sub woofer is not working on my pioneer vsx-81txv everything is working all the speakers except the power sub connection at the back all i can hear is the hissing sound when i try to connect the sub...


Hissing? How loud? A sub isn't even capable of making high frequency sounds at normal volumes.

The Pioneer manual would tell you how to enable and test the subwoofer output.
Page 17 and the MACCV procedures on Page 33 (auto) or 43 (manual)

You need to determine if its the sub or the amp.

Dive back into the setup and make sure you have the sub defined (page 19). Run setup. It should work.

If not, tune FM, run an RCA cable from either Record Out channel to the sub's input; or connect a CD directly to the sub. Gradually raise the volume with something bass-rich playing. That ought to wake it up. If not, the sub is dead.

Jvc subwoofer sx pw22 working fine then just stopped working. power light is on and fuse is not blown. any suggestions?


First check all the connections. Something as simple as a loose wire will cause your sub to shut down. If all connections are secure, then your coils on the sub itself may have come apart. To test, try pushing in the center of the sub as it is playing. If sound comes out, it's your coils.

Hope this helps.

PSB Sub 5i-Starts to rumble continously when the stereo is off


Had this same problem with a Yamaha sub. Unfortunately it's the amp section in the sub. If they can't fix it in the shop (problem is they don't leave it on long enough for the problem to return), the only option is replacement. I buy exclusively on AmEx cards, because they cover this kind of stuff - an additional 1 year warranty on anything you buy.

No Soound on Subwoofer from Yamaha RX-V363


I have the same setup. Are you going out of the subwoofer output of the reciever? (it's purple.) then into the LFE jack of the subwoofer (also purple.) That's the only connection you need besides power. If you have those right, try using your cable for something else to make sure the cable is good. Is the indicator of the subwoofer green? Mine comes on with the reciever. Good luck!

Connecting 2 sub woofers to denon 1506 receiver


Most receivers only handle one sub at a time. If you are deadset on connecting two, you might want to consider how much power your receiver will give to each if you split the signal then determine the power of each sub. If the subs aren't the same you can be sure they will sound strange.

If they are identical and your receiver has enough power to handle them both, examine the connection the subs use to connect to the receiver and split the connection by buying a splitter at a local radioshack.

You will probably be better off using the better of the two subs instead of having both connected. Your sound quality will be more balanced and clear when it comes to bass.
