On the right side of your display you will see a pair of buttons in the upper part of the face. These two buttons are vertical. The bottom button of those two is the SW/Bass button. Press this button and it switches the display to the subwoofer menu . Check the settings here to make sure the subwoofer output is turned on. Each time you press it, it should change menu setting. If you press and hold, it will change to the bass boost menu.

If this does not help you to turn on the subwoofer, it could be an internal problem in the radio that would need to be checked by a professional. Many of these Pioneer radios have an internal fuse that can open up. It is not the type of fuse you could change yourself. It is a surface mounted fuse that is very tiny and does not look like a fuse at all. It would require very good soldering skills to replace and knowledge of this particular component just to locate it.

If you found this free information helpful a good rating would be appreciated.

Let me know if you need any more help.

How can I hook up BIC F12 subwoofer to Onkyo TX-DS838 receiver? Will the receiver power the subwoofer and other speakers?


Get a RCA cable and connect from your amp where it said Sub Woofer in the Pre Out box in the back of the amplifier top left hand side and take it to the "Sub In" located in the back of your Sub woofer bottom right hand (White round connector).
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)

How can i test my rca output jacks with a test light? pioneer deh p3100ub. hooked up spkr, nothing. tried one rca plug to white(lt) and then red(rt). Unit has 4 rca jacks, 2 for subwfr and 2 for front...


:) the rca jacks have to be connected to an amplifier,, their signal is too lay to even light a bulb.. you have to connect it to a car amplifier and then from the amplifier to the speakers..

Just so you'd know,, once your deck plays and you hear music on your speakers through your normal speaker wires,, RCA jacks work..

Ok you have 4 jacks,, 2 subs and 2 front.. These should connect to a preamp,, which takes 4 inputs and allows you to equalize or adjust how the music should sound,, now from the pre-amp,, it runs to an amplifier,, thats powers the subs and another that powers the speakers.. Some amps have 4 inputs so you can use one amp for your subs mids and heights..

for example a basic music system is

1 cd player
1 pre amp
1 amplifier (4 inputs, 4 channel out)

you bridge 1+2 and connect this to 1 12" double coil sub woofer

the next 2 connect to 2 mid speakers example "rockford or ev 5 / 8 " and 2 tweeters for heights..

Thats a kicking tricked out basic car audio system,,,

Hope that helps you understand how it works..

NEED TO KNOW HOW TO HOOK UP SUBWOOFER TO RECEIVER


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, most receivers do not have a built-in sub-amp but do have a line level sub woofer out. What is then required is an active subwoofer or an additional mono amp for the subwoofer speaker. The receiver will then be connected through an RCA to RCA cable and the subwoofer speaker connected to the add-on amp.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

2 Press MULTI-CONTROL to display the

3 Press MULTI-CONTROL to select the segment

Press MULTI-CONTROL repeatedly to switch
the segment in the following order:
REAR SP (rear speaker setting)—PREOUT

4 Use MULTI-CONTROL to select the desired

Turn to change the setting.
When REAR SP (rear speaker setting) is selected.
REAR SP:SUB W(subwoofer)—REAR SP:FULL
(full-range speaker)
When PREOUT (RCA output setting) is selected.
PREOUT:SUB W (subwoofer)—PREOUT:REAR

Hope this helps.

More bass


Run one set of RCA lines from head unit to amps if you only have one set of pre-outs on the head unit, then at the amps, use an electronic crossover to split between the two amps, and this will also allow you to control what frequencies go to which amps/speakers. You should use one amp for the speakers and the higher power amp for the subwoofer. You should not try to connect both to the subwoofer. Use 4gauge cables if possible. If you have more questions, just ask.

How do i know if my amp is blown


Hey Yoo,

 

Go to Radio shack and get you an adapter that will take an earphone jack and convert it to RCA male.  You use this to simulate the signal coming from the reciever.  Hook up to a Cd player or Walkman, anything with an earphone output jack. Test that the device actually puts out music or anything worth listening to.  Connect the device to the input of your amp, with the car running, and the reciever turned on.. This will tell yo if the signal is getting from the reciever to the amp. You may not be getting signal from the head unit. 

If you still get no sound to the woofers, dsisconnect the woofers and try a different speaker.  If that speaker dont work,  Change setting and switches., and if you still get no sound, then your amp is toast.
