Check to make sure your the 'Speaker' switch is toggled to ON. Press the 'Speaker' button on the front panel. Or on the remote, press 'Receiver' button on the top left area then the 'Speaker' button on the bottom right area.

Pioneer VSX-D307 has no sound from right front speaker.


Did you connect a known good speaker to the amplifier's right front output connections? Make sure you also have known good wires for the front right as well. Make sure balance control is set to the middle and not just to the left.

No sound out of left channel pioneer vsx1123k


Make sure that you have analogue stereo sources (red & white phono/RCA) connected to any input that you want to have routed to Zone 2.

Check your speaker connections for Zone 2: Correct sockets, and make sure the wires are connected properly and there's no little strands bridging between the black and red terminals on the amp or at the speaker ends.

That's about it.

If there's no sound on one channel then it's most likely to be either a bad speaker/speaker cable connection, or a broken source cable. Try the FM/AM radio (hook up an aerial temporary). That'll be guaranteed to be either stereo or at least dual mono so both channels should work.

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!

Speaker buttons don't function correctly


The Speaker A and Speaker B buttons select pairs of speakers. If you have connected a pair of speakers to the "SPEAKER A" terminals on the rear of your Onkyo receiver, you will hear stereo sound when the Speaker A button is pressed on the front panel. If, for some reason, you wanted to connect a second set of speakers in the same room or perhaps another room you would connect those speakers to the "SPEAKER B" terminals on the rear. Pressing both buttons on the front panel would send sound output to both sets of speakers

Did you remember to remove the shorting link on the MA BR5 speaker terminal ..When you biwire the speakers you should remember to loosen the speaker terminal nuts and remove the shorting link plate between the HF and the LF terminals or you will short the amplifiers two channels together through the link. And modern amplifiers will take a lot of abuse at low volumes but at high volumes the protection circuit will turn off the device.

I get a red light on the back panel labeled power. No green light. I don't think the PV 600 is working but when I run the channel check through my Pioneer THX receiver I hear sound. Any thoughts?


The PV600 and PV400 have auto-on circuitry that turns the subwoofer on when a signal is presented, and turns off if no signal is detected for 15 minutes.

Not knowing which Pioneer receiver you have I have dropped in the steps for No Sound from Subwoofer:

• Check that the subwoofer is connected properly, switched on and the volume turned up.

• If your subwoofer has a sleep function, make sure it is switched off.

• Make sure that the Subwoofer setting is YES or PLUS (see Speaker Setting on page xx).

• The crossover frequency may be set too low; try setting it higher to match the characteristics of your other speakers (see Speaker Setting on page xx)

• If there is very little low frequency information in the source material, change your speaker settings to Front: SMALL / Subwoofer: YES , or Front: LARGE / Subwoofer: PLUS (see Speaker Setting on page xx).

• Check that the LFE channel is not set to -80dB , or a very quiet setting (see Bass Peak Level

on page xx).

• Check the speaker level settings (see Channel Level on page xx).

Regarding the Large vs Small assignment of speakers, what they mean isn't so much the physical size but the ability to handle real bass. Large if Yes.

If you can via experimentation confirm that your amps are ok then the issue lies with the Dolby IC chip that controls the various sound modes. It went on my Pioneer and I had hassles getting the various speakers to work properly under different sound modes. Replacement, not cheap, cured my issue.

Old receiver, new subwoofer- how to connect?


NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Never connect speaker outputs to anything that looks different, like RCA connections. Can you say crispy critter?

Your receiver sounds like it won't send specific Subwoofer of Low Frequency Effects information to the Sub so we're cheating by adding a sub. If you named the model of each we may have a better shot at naming the output you need to use.

I'm curious. How did you have the old passive sub working?

Basically what you may have to do is feed (probable) full range audio to the Sub using an RCA splitter to combine the L and R outputs found, oh, at any Tape Output that you're not using. The Sub will only reproduce what it can. The presence of higher frequencies won't bother it. If it has its own volume control you'll be able to balance its volume with the rest of your speakers.

Receiver shuts off as volume is turned up beyond


try connecting only 1 speaker at a time. try it on each of the binding posts (connection terminals), crank it up to locate which one of the speaker terminals is overloading the amplifier.

Then connect a different speaker to that terminal to see if it still overloads. This should determine if its the speaker that is overloading that particular terminal or if something is wrong with the amplifier.

Just for fun make sure that the cables you are using don't have any fraying and that none of the speaker binding posts have any loose strands of wire possibly grounding out to the chassis of the receiver.
