There is a setting under your speaker setup to turn the subwoofer on. If speakers are set to small it auto matically sets the subwoofer to ON. If the speakers are set to large it turns the subwoofer off but you can manually adjust.

Only red light is blinking on my denon avr 1508


It sounds like you overloaded the Denon avr with too much resistence from the speakers. Please check the total resistence of the speakers before you connect them all. Also check that the speakers or their wires are not shorted!

Cant get my sub to work on my denon avr2808 and dont think it ever has it doesnt even work on the test signal


Hello
There are four possibilities that the subwoofer doesn't gives any aoutput. They are:


• Subwoofer's power not turned

on.


•The "Subwoofer" setting at

"Speaker configuration" is set to

"No".


•The subwoofer is not properly

connected.


•The subwoofer's volume is
turned off.
Go to its manual setupscreen, come to speaker setup, speaker confuguration, come towards Sub Woofer, select "Yes" and press OK.

My subwoofer is connected correctly (test mode it works fine). The Denon 589 receiver, however, when everything is set up and ready to go, doesnt seem to send any output to it, so there is no base sound. ...


What's the make and model of the subwoofer? It sounds like it's a passive (unpowered) speaker.

See page 9

I seriously doubt your test mode worked fine on the subwoofer level adjustmnent.

Get a powered (active) sub.

Hooked up the subwoofer and it doesnt work at all is the a subwoofer on and off button for this receiver


No, you have to follow the procedures in the manual to inform the unit that there is a subwoofer, then select some parameters on how it is used depending on the functional sizes of your other speakers.

My receiver doesn't have a dedicated subwoofer output, can I still hook up a subwoofer? I have a harmon kardon avr 25


That would depend mostly on your subwoofer. There are some that slave off the front left and right speaker outputs and still pass the amp's power to the Front Speakers. That would be the only way that would ensure volume control.

Otherwise you have to feed a self-powered sub from the Tape Outs but that won't allow volume control from the H-K.

The sub does not work it shows a signal but no sound


Try checking in the preamp/prepro setup menu that your subwoofer is enabled, then check the level in that setup. Then check the level on the subwoofer itself. If all is well then check that the subwoofer connection is in fact connected to the correct output on the pre/pro.
