Hi lawrence_tig,

I'm just wondering if you wanted to try doing some basic troubleshooting with your Sony sawm40 subwoofer? If you you're interested kindly follow the procedure below:

1. First thing, make sure that the physical connections are properly connected. Check the wiring between the woofer and the components if they are intact.

2. Also, try to turn the volume up by turning the level clockwise.

3.Select SPEAKER or LINE with input selector.

4.Reset the level.

Consider also cleaning the heat sink fins in the back for any dust or dirt.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Im getting sound through my wired speakers but no bass through the woofer itself, does this mean i have a blown fuse or something more serious?


1. Check audio wiring.
2. Check subwoofer power cable.
3. If you have any way to substitute for the subwoofer this can confirm wiring.
4. The crossover in the amp may not be working, sending no low range to the subwoofer.

How do i set up my subwoofer sawm40


Sounds like you have a passive subwoofer, you run speaker wire from 'front speaker receiver out' to the subwoofer, the 'subwoofer out' to your front speakers. Seem like your sub has a crossover that grabs the bass frequencies and passes off the rest to the front speakers

If you have a 'subwoofer line out' on your reciever and a 'line in' on you subwoofer then just use that single wire, this would be for a powered sub. You know that you have a powered sub if your sub has a power cord attached to it.

My Sony SA-WM40 subwoofer has power, but sound kicks out. I'll turn off power for about 5min and when turn power on, sound is back. Is something overheating?


Probably, or the woofer coil itself is experiencing a heat, volume or motion related short. Clean any dust or debris from the heat sink fins in the back. Make sure it has lots of space for cooling ventilation.

When I hit power button nothing lights up but I hear the subwoofer power on but still no sound. It's as if it wasn't getting power.


Try disconnecting everything from the back of the system and unplugging it form the wall for a couple of minutes. Plug it back in and try poering it on. You may google search "diagnostics boot" or "error boot" with you model number and see what comes up. There is a fuce inside you could check, usually to the back right on Yamaha receivers. This doesn't sound likely due to your subwoofer sound though....maybe.
I bought about 70 receivers that were last years models from Yamaha, Denon, Sony Bravia, etc. Most worked but some required fixing. Some where easy as fuses, blown capacitors (visually), then some are still in my storage LOL. I hope this helps. By the wy, you can always purchase a repair/diagnostics manual that repair shops use with diagrams and trouble shooting tips for your particular model.

GOoD luck

Sony SAWX700, powers on fine, subs are not blown but no sound


The problem may be with the preamp power supply section. Easy fix in most cases. This is a great sub, they don't build them this well anymore. From Sony, I was quoted around $200 plus the bad board in exchange. The part to fix it costs $1.00, labour an hour or less. Get it fixed. The other brands have gone cheap with components and build quality. Let me know if you want more info.

Powered Subwoofer hits hard even on dialogue.


This sub doesn't have a gate (keep the sub from engaging when the source level is low) so it'll "hit" for any input signal. What it does have is an adjustable frequency low-pass filter. If it's kicking in for sounds that don't need big bass reinforcement, try turning the filter to a lower number. The sub will then only kick in for really deep sounds.

The 'Subwoofer' output on your receiver is used to connect to a powered subwoofer with a built in amplifier. Your KLH speakers use what is called a 'passive' subwoofer, it gets its power from the receiver and then passes the higher frequencies to the left and right front speakers after taking out the low frequencies for the subwoofer. A speaker system with a passive subwoofer is good for casual listening, but a powered subwoofer is required for really hearing low frequencies and rumble in movies. The KLH speakers you have were highly rated in their time for their price. The four satellite speakers and center channel speaker have very good sound compared to the little 'midget' surround sound speakers most people buy today.

Here's how you hook them up:

- The left and right front channels from your receiver terminals should go to the terminals on the subwoofer marked 'From Amplifier'
- Your left and right front speakers are then connected to the subwoofer terminals marked 'To Speakers', they do not connect directly to your receiver.
- Your center speaker is connected to your receiver terminals marked 'Center'
- Your rear speakers are connected to your receiver terminals marked 'Surround'

That should get you up and running. If the bass isn't good enough with the passive subwoofer, you can get a decent powered subwoofer like the Velodyne VX-10 for about $150 and 'kick it up a notch'. Good luck and enjoy....
