Question about Onkyo TX-SV525 Receiver
When I connect my KEF psw 2000 on the subwoofer pre out connection of the TX-SV525 Receiver here is no sound coming out of the subwoofer ( the subwoofer is tested and perfect).
In the manual is written that I have to turn on "a speakerA switch" to "on" situiated on the front panel.
What do I have to do to make my subwoofer working?
Yes turing on the "A" speaker is required for the Onkyo, but that only turns on the 2 front speakers in the "A" speaker jacks.
You may also need to check and see if the Onkyo has a menu selection in the setup menu that will turn on the sub woofer output on the back of the receiver.
I have seen on countless occasions where people just have a hard time finding that sub woofer option on their receiver.
I do not have the manuals for this Onkyo, so I can not tell you the exact way to find it.
I have been repairing surround receivers since they have been on the market and beleive me, you are not alone in this situation.
Sometimes it seems like you need a Phd. in programming or something similar just to firgure out how to set one of these up.
The solution should be in your owners manual, with the problem then being, just where in the manual. Go slowly thru it paying the closest attention to anything about set up procedures.
I have also seen at times where the setup for the sub-woofer is not listed as sub-woofer, but as "LFE" (low frequency effect) . So keep your eyes open for that.
something else, your sub woofer may have an auto turn on. That means it will only turn on if it detects an input signal. Make sure yo uhave the volume up enough on the receiver to trigger that auto turn on if yours has one.
I would like to have been more help, but without the manuals I can only give you general type thngs to look for. These type of receivers are all so different and all so complicated to operate. The days of just turning on a stereo, selecting your source and turning up the volume seem to be over.
Let me know if you need any more assistance from me.
p.s. Very nice system you have, when you get the Kef working I think you are going to just love this system. and Onkyo has the best quality receivers in their price range.
