The reciever should have a "subwoofer level" setting, or a "bass level control" If you cannot find this then try to place the "sub-woofer" away from walls and elevate it from the floor. This will reduce it's loudness/ intensity at annoying frequencies...

Good Luck

Can you please tell me how to connect my kef psw


If your amp has a "sub out" jack, that's the best way to hook up this sub. You'll just need a single RCA (also called "phono") cable. Connect it to the Left input on the sub, which should also be marked as "mono"

If your amp just has speaker-level outputs, then connect the left and right main speakers from your amp to the sub's high-level inputs, and then run wires from the sub's high-level outputs to your speakers.

If you're running a surround-sound setup, use the front-left and front-right speakers for this hookup.


If this helps, be sure to hit the "thumbs-up" button for me!

YAMAHA AV receiver RX-V861 I have the message 'Vol-fix' appearing on Zone 2 and no sound. This was working fine until then


Setting the RX-V861 remote control to operate Zone 2:
  1. Using a ballpoint pen or similar object and press the [CODE SET] button RX-V861 remote control. The[TRANSMIT INDICATOR]on the remote should flash twice.
  2. Using the [NUMERICAL KEY PAD] on the remote and key in 9992, the [TRANSMIT INDICATOR] should flash.
Assigning the receivers internal amp for Zone 2:
  1. Set the remote control selector to [AMP]. (Located to the right of the volume buttons on the Remote.).
  2. Press the [SET MENU]button on the remote control.
  3. Arrow down to Manual Setup and press the Enter button on the remote control.
  4. Arrow to the [SOUND MENU] option and press the [ENTER] button on the remote control.
  5. Arrow to Speaker Set and press the [ENTER] button on the remote control.
  6. Arrow to the EXTRA SP ASSIGN and select ZONE2
  7. Press the [RETURN] button on the remote control to exit out and return to the Manual Setup.
NOTES: There is an option for setting the Maximum Volume and Initial Volume in the Zone Set menu.
  • Max Volume: This is an optional feature but isrecommended to prevent the accidental change in volume levels thatcould damage the speakers and receiver.
  • Initial Volume: This is also a great feature that would seamlessly start the volume level for the second or third zone at the desired level.
We do not recommend using any Speaker Selector boxes to enable more than the recommended number of speakers per terminal.
Controlling Zone 2 using the RX-V861 remote control:
  1. If the Main Zone on the receiver is on, press the [POWER BUTTON]down and while holding that button down press the [PHONO]/[**] button on the remote. The [TRANSMIT INDICATOR] will light up.
  2. You will not be able to use the following buttons on the remote: (Pressing any other button will cause the remote to exit Zone 2 mode. [POWER], [STANDBY], [VOLUME], [MUTE] and the [INPUT SELECTOR] buttons [DVD], [CD], etc.)

Thank you,

Radio plays for short time and shuts off ive tride every thing


The problem is most likely the amplifier circuit. It is probably over-heating and the speaker relay is turning off. it is not likely that it can be diagnosed properly on an online forum, since it takes some troubleshooting to be certain of it. Does this system have the amplifier built into the sub-woofer? If I had the model number I could probably give you much better advice, not all home theater systems have the exact same problems. Each different model of every brand have there own unique problems specific to that model number. There are some universal problems, but this is not one of those easy to figure out universal type of problems. I work at an authorized Samsung service center and have experience with repairing these type of systems, so if I were to get the model number I could offer you a better solution. But it is likely that it will need to be serviced to determain the exact problem. A couple of the Samsung home theater systems that have the amplifier in the sub-woofer must have the entire sub-woofer replaced because they do not offer the parts and service data needed to do a component level repair.

One way to determain if the sub-woofer has the amplifier built into it is if all the speaker wires for the sattelite speakers all connect to the sub-woofer.

Sometimes a bad speaker can cause the amp to get hot and shut down, you can check these very easy yourself.

First, while the system is turned off, disconnect one speaker. Any speaker is OK to start with. After one speaker is disconnected, turn on the system and play it at medium volume. If the system stays playing and doesn't turn off the speakers as it did before, the speaker that is disconnected is probably bad. Take it to a service center and get it checked to be certain. Most service centers will do this for free as a courtesy to their customers, it only takes a minute to check.

If the system turns off as it did with all speakers connected, you then need to reconnect that speaker and disconnect one of the other speakers and go thru the proccess again. Make sure to do all of the speaker connecting and disconnecting while the system is turned off.

If you end up disconnecting all the speakers one at a time and the system still shuts off, it could be that the sub-woofer speaker is bad or the amplifier is bad.

If you can give me the model number of your system, it would help.

You need to take apart tthe sub woofer and check the connection to bass speaker for continuity. It sounds like an internal broken connection to speaker on sub woofer unit.
