Question about Onkyo HTR500 Receiver

1 Answer

I have an Onkyo HT-R8230 receiver and I can not get any sound out of the center channel or the subwoofer. The sub will not even power on. It stays in the standby mode and there is no manual on/off button on the sub. Any suggestions?

The manual is available at retrevo.com.

If you don't have the center and sub defined in the Onkyo they will never work. See page 20.

If that is all set and you still have problems...

To prove the center speaker works, connect it to one of the front channels.

To prove the sub works, connect it via RCA cable(s) to the Tape Out and play something containing deep bass. You should see it come out of standby and hear something, albeit only the deep bass.

No sound from center speaker or subwoofer on HT-R500 av receiver


Take a left or right speaker that you know works and connect it to the center and test. Repeat for the sub.

Are you sure you setup the AVR correctly that it knows you have a center and sub?

How to Connect HT-CN300 Subwoofer to Onkyo TX-SR313?


Hello! You will most likely need a RCA cable with single ends (both being male ends) One end plugs into your subwoofer input....marked subwoofer input on the subwoofer..........The other end will plug into your receiver that is marked subwoofer . When low frequencys from your media.....whether dvd,s /cable or audio cd,s is present the sub woofer will kick in , Make shure to adjust your setting on the rear of the sub if it has any like volume or frequency , most better subs have them as where the home theater in a box combo usually does not!

I have 2 onkyo home theater systems, one is an older ht-r8230 with an skw-8230 powered subwoofer & the other system is a ht-r420 with s powered skw-420 sub. all i did was change the rooms the 2 systems...


It's possible that you have accidentally switched off the sub-woofer outputs on the receivers. Onkyo have a speaker set up test. You should run that and see if the speakers are on and that a signal is getting through to them.

Very low ouput from subwoofer preout


The problem was that some subwoofers (inluding my velodyne model) cannot process the LFE signals through the line level inputs on its amps, so the other way to run your subwoofer is to run the front left and right speaker outputs from your receiver to the speaker-level inputs on your sub, and then plug your front and left speakers into the soeaker level outputs on the sub. you have to set the onkyo receiver to "Subwoofer: No". that way the LFE signals are sent through the front speaker channels and you will get the same BASS output as if using the line-level input. O So yes it does require a bit more speaker cable, but it works fine now.

Subwoofer volume and sound


i had the same problem when i tried to adjust speaker output levels, distance and equalizer manually without using audessy setup..so i reset everything to factory setting (0s)..and then ran 
audessy setup..reduce volume on your subwoofer to slightly above minimum(behind the subwoofer) before running the setup..once audessy setup is completed successfully..i started changing setup
manually..changed speaker config for front speaker to small (it is set as large by audessy setup), this should automatically adjust center and other speaker configuration (if not make sure to set them to small as well), then set the cross over frequency to 120..increase the volume on your subwoofer and now you should hear it fire..if this does not help..try playing some rock music with all channel streo mode..if your subwoofer does not fire even for this..then take the system back for exchange..
