SB speakers error

I have a pioner VSX-917V. I hooked up my 2 front speakers, center speaker, 2 back speakers and a sub.

When I do the auto-mcacc. The test tones come out of all the speakers, but then it takes me to an error screen and says there is an error with the SB speakers

    I have the exact same problem. I´ve googled it and also sent the question to Pioneer. The answer i got from Pioneer was that the MCACC needed the SB speakers to be closer to the mic than the frontspeakers and if that didnt work the mic could be broken???
    The things i´ve read on internet is to check the cables so the polarity is correct, + to + and - to -. Some have also said to change the cable connections to "surrond" instead of "rear". (If 7.1 system)

    I have the exact same problem as well and I haven't gotten anything to work, it doesn't make any sense, the rear speakers make noise but it comes up with an unexplained error.

I had the same problem but fixed it (no thanks to what I believe is an oversight by Pioneer!). The amp is a 7.1 system. What we are assuming is the rear surround (SB) is the default using a 5.1 setup. The amp uses the SR & SL as the default. So the solution is plug your rear speakers into the SR & SL & you should have your surround! (only took me 6 hours to figure this out, hope it saves you time!)

I have just bought a technics sc-dv290 hi-fi off of my cousin and found out the mid range and the tweeters have blown does anyone know where i could get replacent tweeters and mid-range speakers for it if...


As you probably know, these are the individual model numbers:

SC-DV290 the base unit
SB-DV290 speaker set

Front SB-DV290
Center SB-PC95
Surround SB-PS95

I'd scour Google or eBay for any or all of those models. Orphan speakers appear periodically.

I have the VSX-1019AH-k Pioneer receiver and i want to increase the bass. When i go to setup for the speakers the SW option is grayed out so i can't put it to plus. Help?


I'm referencing a VSX-1016 manual, so I hope it's close enough to help you find the function...

Somewhere in the System Setup menu you'll find a setting for SUB W. The wrong setting is NO.

Set it to YES or PLUS depending on if you want ONLY the Sub to carry all the bass, or if the Front Speakers will share bass with the Sub, respectively.
