Question about Yamaha Rx-v565 Receiver

1 Answer

I have a Yamaha RX-565 and I added a JBL ES150P powered subwoofer. I've run the YAPO Auto Setup many times and I keep getting an error that says the "Subwoofer is too loud", and it is! The subwoofer makes my house wall's rumble! I've tried to set it up manually but have had no success. The LFE/Subwoofer output is always too much, especially when watching movies. I don't know what else I can do to make the subwoofer blend with the rest of the channels. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Jesus M. Benitez

Can I convert My JBL subwoofer to a single jack to match my yamaha Rx V667 receiver and get rid of the old way of extra lines

Actually, you only need to use one of the two subwoofer outs from the V667 so a single RCA male - RCA male cable would do the trick.

My subwoofer makes a humming noise

In most cases when you have a humming from anything electronic it is being caused by a bad filter capacitor in the power supply. Filter capacitors look like little cans. Look for units which are bulging. If so replace them.Electrolytic capacitors are so cheap even if none are bulging you could replace them all for less than $10. Try that and let me know.


Thanks for using FixYa

Amp makes noise when volume is off

Subwoofers are more susceptible to magnetic and radio frequency interference than your average speaker, or more commonly called RFI.

If you have a RadioShack or other electronics store nearby, purchase a ground loop isolator. This will ground any of the stray electrical pulses around your subwoofer. It is very easy to install and plugs directly into the RCA jack of the subwoofer and should eliminate the problem.

If this does not solve your problem, I suggest bringing your unit in for service if the noise is bothersome.

No sound from subwoofer on tuner and cd listening

If you have video running thru the receiver to your TV it's alot easier to see the menu. when hooked up to a TV press the Menu/GUI button on the Yamaha remote, when you get the on screen display choose "manual setup" and navigate to "Speaker Settings" arrow up or down to "Subwoofer" options are "LFE" "Sub" or "Both" choose "Both" and "enter/select/or ok" Now, if it still is happening, it means somehoe you have set up a user preference on those two inputs to have no sub. You have to navigate thru the menu to inputs and audio and check your settings. If you need more help, it is in the manual. If you don't have the manual, you can download it at click on Home audio products then type in RX-V863 in the search box on the left. You may have to register to use their site files, however, it's free and you won't get spammed by Yamaha nor will they sell your email address. anyway, your problem is in your setup menu. Take your time and don't get frustrated! you've got a killer receiver!! Hope this helps

No Soound on Subwoofer from Yamaha RX-V363

I have the same setup. Are you going out of the subwoofer output of the reciever? (it's purple.) then into the LFE jack of the subwoofer (also purple.) That's the only connection you need besides power. If you have those right, try using your cable for something else to make sure the cable is good. Is the indicator of the subwoofer green? Mine comes on with the reciever. Good luck!

Yamaha rx-v661 unsolved speaker wiring error

1. Try running the auto setup without the sub. ( is it a powered sub {the sub has its own amp on the back} or is a NON powered sub that is driven off the speaker jacks of the Yamaha receiver. )

If the sub is powered, and connected to the Amp via the RCA cable from the " sub out " jack, chances are you either have a defective sub or a gound loop.

Good luck...Rob
