Can i connect a seperate power amplifier to my onkyo tx sr608? I have a "pre-out" for my subwoofer hookup, can I use that to go into my amp? I want to power my front main speakers with the more powerful amp and use the receivers amp to power the rest.

Nope, you would need specific pre-outs for external amps for the front channels. That is what the sub pre-out is and a powered sub IS an external amp.

How much bigger an amp were you considering? 100 watts is pretty good and to make an appreciable (audible difference) you might have to double it.

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!

If you look on the internet HDMI board failure on these Onkyo's seems quite a regular occurence.

Time to scrap the Onkyo and buy something with a better name - like Yamaha, Denon or Marantz.

How to set-up the audio. I have 5 speakers and 1 subwoofer

Your subwoofer needs it's own audio power (amp). I'm pretty sure the manuals for the speakers cover their requirements and set-up.

My receiver is not picking up the subwoofer, there is noise coming from the sub when I'm playing with the conection. The speakers are working and im getting prefect sound from them Please help.....


It would be helpful to know if this is a new problem on working equipment or a new problem on NEW equipment. And if you've flipped through the manual without success.

Of course you KNOW the sub must have its own amp, right?

First, you need to determine if the Onkyo or the unnamed sub is at fault.

At the Onkyo, check to make sure you have run the speaker setup starting on Page 40. If that doesn't work...

Disconnect the subwoofer pre-out at the Onkyo and move it to the VCR Out, tune an FM station and be ready for some real loud subwoofer output if your sub has no volume control of its own. If you can hear the sub, it works and it's back to the Onkyo. If not, the unnamed sub

How do I connect a Onkyo DS-A3 up so that i can use my Logitech Harmony 900? Which cables and configuration do I use? Thanks


The harmony 900 should simply be used as a replacement for your onkyo 729E remote, there's no "hookup" involved, just program the 900E for the DS-A3 dock.
If you want to know how to hook up your DS-A3 to your stereo/TV, that would be a different issue.

Powered Or Unpowered Subwoofers For Onkyo TX-8511


Greg- Powered subs are better than non-powered subs (also known as passive subs), anyway I see the TX-8511 has no sub pre-out on the back panel, so you need to decide what sub you will use and run from the receivers left and right speakers output into a subwoofers speaker in from speakers then back out to speakers, look at the back of a subwoofer and you will see like 4 sets of speaker hookups 2 in and 2 out, what this does is takes the low end or bass and drops the signal to the subwoofer then takes the mids and highs out to your left and right speakers, unless your regular left and right stereo speakers have large woofers a sub is the way to go.
