Your problem could be that in your sound manager for you computer there is no subwoofer specified. If you go into volume control, then press options and go to properties. In the lower part there is options to tick boxes for certain things. Tick the subwoofer option then go back to volume control and CRANK IT UP :D
If this option was already enabled when you posted it could be that it does have sound but not as much as you want..... or something else with your sound card. (Has been sometime since this was posted so...... yeah) Soz if this bumps this... but it has no solutions and i had this prob and that fixed it for me.

The simplest way is to connect both the left and right channel speaker wires from your amp or receiver into the speaker wire connections on the back of the sub labeled "From Amplifier"
Then connect speaker wires from the adjacent terminals labeled "To Speakers"
What you are essentially doing now is using the internal crossover of the subwoofer where you determine at what frequency the sub begins to blend with the other speakers.
This is done with the Crossover knob just above the speaker wire connections.
Whatever you have this set to, the main volume will now raise and lower the volume of the sub and main speaker together but you can still make the sub louder or softer as compared to the main speakers by using the subs volume control.
Defeat all tone controls on your preamp or receiver and use only the crossover knob and sub volume until you achieve a seamless blend where you cannot tell where the sub is and it is an extension of the speakers from where you will be sitting.
DO not evaluate from the sub itself because the room shape and acoustics are drastically different everywhere ESPECIALLY when you are dealing with bass frequencies.
First, you have to have a self-powered subwoofer (or two) with this reciver. That means the sub has its own amplifier. These are usually capable of accepting either Line Level (RCA) input or direct L and R amplifier channel speaker wires from your receiver from which it will react only to frequencies in its range. It doesn't actually use any if the power from your receiver's amp.
That is why you can extend your front speakers from the sub. Again, understand this - it is not playing any part in amplifying them. The amps in your receiver are just passing through it.
Setting your speaker 'Type' definition to Large will tell your receiver that they are capable of real bass (as opposed to small satellites) but won't necessarily steal anything from the subs. Set your LFE/Bass Out setting to Both if your front speakers are capable of handling real bass. Why would you want to deny them bass if they can handle it?
This part is confusing "If I can get the sub working on taking the lows out of the front speakers if I set them to large on the receiver then that is one thing less to send to the other sub on the LFE channel". The crossover feature allows you to define what bass goes to the sub. You would use the various points to smooth out the transition between your sub and the rest. Your quote of 47hz spec for something doesn't suggest your other speakers are great bass reproducers. One needs to see the +- db spec with less than x% distortion for that number make any sense.
Your receiver has two RCA Subwoofer Outputs but I'm sure they get the exact same level. If you're having trouble matching two different subs doesn't at least one of them have an adjustment for volume? Or maybe you could use physical positioning to adjust their comparative volume.
the reciever should have a "subwoofer level" setting, or a "bass level control" If you cannot find this then try to place the "sub-woofer" away from walls and elevate it from the floor. This will reduce it's loudness/ intensity at annoying frequencies...
You had the settings set incorrectly and overdrove it. The voice coil leads are burn't open. If you look at the little flexible braids by the terminals I'll bet they are black/brown and maybe even burn't in half. It's toast.
Sounds like your original and this sub have bad amps. The amp for the sub is not the same as the amp for the other speakers. The old unit has a dead amp and this new one is on the way out. (Pulling too much current on high bass)
