Hi Cassie, unless your receiver is a surround reciever, it won't have an actual subwoofer output. The good news is that you can use either a "line out" jack or a "tape out" jack instead, which most receivers do have. These jacks always have the signal, so there are no special settings to remember - simply operate your receiver as usual. Everything comes out of these jacks, not just the bass - but it won't matter since your subwoofer will only reproduce the bass frequencies. The bass information is generally identical in both left and right channels, so either the right or left jack should work fine, and it's okay to leave the other one unconnected. The only bad thing is the line and tape outputs are not affected by the receiver's bass and treble controls, so you'll have to control the bass volume at the subwoofer if it has a control. If you can't control the amount of bass you hear, turn up the volume and reduce the treble which will give the illusion of more bass. I'm assuming you have "powered" subwoofer (has its own built-in amplifier). Good luck!

Power sub woofer is not working on my pioneer vsx-81txv everything is working all the speakers except the power sub connection at the back all i can hear is the hissing sound when i try to connect the sub...


Hissing? How loud? A sub isn't even capable of making high frequency sounds at normal volumes.

The Pioneer manual would tell you how to enable and test the subwoofer output.
Page 17 and the MACCV procedures on Page 33 (auto) or 43 (manual)

The reciever is connected to my subwoofer but Im not getting anything out of my subwoofer.


You need to instruct the receiver that it has a subwoofer and then tell it if it should share the bass with other speakers. Read the manuals for both the receiver and the subwoofer. AVR's take some setting up. Subwoofers are never assumed to be installed.

Iassume you mean you hear the buzz independently of the audio program - simply connecting the cable causes the buzz?

If tanything in the mix is powered from different AC sources you may have a different ground potential. Sometimes manipulating the orientation of one or more ac plugs will solve hum problems.

Too much bass...low end


Hi, have you tried adjusting the "subwoofer level", and or the "subwoofer cut" controls? Every sub I have ever seen has at least the level control on the back. The "cut or crossover" control determines the frequency at which the sub will start to respond. Additionally, you may need to access the appropriate menu on you reciever and adjust the "low frequency effects" (LFE) output level (assuming you have connected your sub to the reciever's sub output jack.

Hope this helps.

Hooking up surround sound to t.v.


Start with the receiver. If your speaker connections are done and you have good sound coming from the speakers, connect your components (xbox, dvd player, cable box, etc) to the appropriate connection type on the back of the receiver (HDMI, Component, etc for video; Optical, Coaxial, or analog for audio). Next, find the "Monitor Out" connection and hook that to an input on your television. The receiver should take care of the rest in the setup menu. To program your receiver i suggest downloading the user manual (search google for the make and model number of your reciever you should be able to find one available).
Things to remember.. your reciever may not "up-convert" video signals, which means if you hook Component into your reciever from, say, a dvd player and your Monitor Out is HDMI to the TV, your receiver might not switch the connection for you. If you end up with good audio but no video on an input, this is why. Try running that same video type (Composite, Component, HDMI, etc) to the TV from a seperate Monitor Out.
Your subwoofer, which I am assuming is a "Powered" type that plugs into a receptacle as well, plugs into the back of the reciever on the "Subwoofer Pre-Out" connection. If it is "Passive", which is unlikely, let me know.
The rest is programming, which is usually done in the setup menu or main menu for your receiver. Again, I recommend downloading the manual from a good website.

Subwoofer VERY weak


According to the KLH manual for the 9906 "6 pack" with the BassBite sub... it says "if your sub is connected via the speaker - level terminals, your reciever must be set for "NO" subwoofer - even though you are using one. VErify proper polarity on your speaker connection wires. (red or gold to +, black or silver to -). Depending on how you have your woofer connected to the reciever, if connected to a reciever without a subwoofer out then set your reciever for LARGE speakers and turn the subwoofer setting "OFF". Failure to do so will result in little to no bass. If you do have a subwoofer out from your reciever adjust your speaker size setting to small or large speakers as appropriate. Set the recievers sub output to ON. Connecting small speakers to a reciever set for LArge speakers can result in damage to small speakers.

Hope this helps.
