    The audio out from my tv into the audio input of the receiver (Pioneer SX 316) doesn't work, very weak sound. The DVD surround works fine.

SOURCE: Low volume from Akai turntable attached to Pioneer Surround Sound Receiver

If you receiver doesn't have phono inputs,you will need to buy an inline phono amplifier.Phono inputs have a built in amplifier,all others don't.Try Crutchfield.com.If they don't carry them,they will tell you who does.

SOURCE: Connecting a sub-woofer to Pioneer VSX-453 surround reciever

connect to same terminals as front speakers, this will also cause reduced volume from front speakers. (as per owners manual)

SOURCE: I have a Pioneer Audio Multi Channel Receiver

DVD audio straight in from its highest quality audio output. Use the stereo audio output to run straight to the TV for casual watching through TV speakers without the Pioneer involved.

A TV is just a glorified night-light, not a sound source - get its related audio from the Cable Box, ditto the highest quality

How do I hook up a powered subwoofer to a pioneer sx-316?


Many subwoofers accept both line level (RCA jacks) and amplified inputs (+ and - speaker terminals). The Pioneer SX-316 does not offer line level output, only amplified outputs via the PURPLE + and - speaker terminals. This means that in order to use any subwoofer with an SX-316, the sub woofer will need to accept a + and - speaker wire connections for input Your manual speaker connections are on page 11 of the manual which can be found here: http://www.manualslib.com/manual/260358/Pioneer-Sx-316-S.html#manual

Starting at the rear of the SX-316; run a speaker wire from the PURPLE + and - terminal (SUBWOOFER) to the + and - speaker input terminals on the subwoofer. See your subwoofer manual or experiment (at your own risk) with connecting the speaker wire from the SX-316 to the subwoofer's + and - LEFT only, RIGHT only or BOTH left and right speaker inputs. Do not connect wires from the SX-316 to the speaker OUTPUT terminals of your subwoofer.

Finally, adjust any variable low pass filter knob or setting on the subwoofer to the lowest frequency that your main speakers are capable of producing. If you're not sure what that value is, try setting the subwoofer to 100Hz and judge how it blends with the main speakers. If it seems a little too bass heavy and thick then reduce the setting to 80Hz. On the other hand, if the sound seems to be slightly thin and lacking weight, try increasing the setting to 120Hz. By careful listening and a bit of patience you will be able to get the sound to seem balanced and well blended.

Good luck!

I have a pioneer sx-316-s audio reciever and when i plug my ipod into the front aduio jack, the sound is really low and only comes out of one side. Is there any way to fix that?


Try another jack on the Pioneer, adapting the cable for RCA ends if necessary, to prove which direction to look for the cause.

Look at the connector cable and the iPod for a cause.

Distorted sound coming out of SW channel only


try turnind down the sub from the amp itself it might be putting out more volts than the subs input can handle check your standing wave feature to make sure the trim is not up too high
