A Denon AVR 889 is not a sub so we don't know anything about the sub in question.

Maybe the existence of the sub is no longer set in the AVR. Look at the speaker definitions first before going to wild.

Try another cable to the sub.

OR, run the sub's signal supply cable to one of the Tape Outs on the receiver and tune in something on FM. If that works a) it will be loud, and b) go back to the SUB settings on the AVR.

Crack the sub open and access the terminals on the speaker itself. Disconnect them from internal components and run one of your amp channels directly to it. If it works, the amp or signal path are dead. If it doesn't work, it's a dead driver.

Connecting a passive subwoofer to a denon 2113


you need another reciever/amp to power that sub, because that denon reciever is designed for a powered sub,. if you have another old reciever/amp laying around, you can connect the sub out from the denon into an auxillary input of any old reciever/amp, (switched to that input) with speaker wires from old reciever/amp to the passive sub

Can i hook up two subwoofers to a denon avr 1907


Sure, just get an RCA splitter and share the Sub Pre-Out with the two self-powered subs or one amp powering two of them.

My Denon AVR 589 does not seem to send any signal to my sub, I have try another working sub and it does the same. I just notice this week that my sub was not working. I have check on the amp setting and...


Is there a switch on the back of the receiver that will switch the sub signal from digital to analog? And the same switch might be on the subwoofer itself.

Hope that helps if not just reply back.
Thanks

No sound from Sub.... from my Denon AVR-2700, not AVR-3300, Yeah its old!


if the subwoofer is on in the reciecer settings then maybe the amp is not getting the signal or the amp is not amplifying
try unplugging the output of the sub then turn off the reciever for a min. then turn it on wait , then plug the sub in
if that don't work then test the sub output with a stereo that has a audio input
also test the subwoofer with a audio output to it( only a positive and a negitive wire for sub)
