How to hook up subwoofer for yamaha RX-496 2channels receiver

You need to connect the subwoofer to your receiver using the speaker wire connections on the rear of the receiver. Take the speaker input from the subwoofer to the A or B speaker terminals on the rear of the AV receiver. Then take the speaker outputs from the sub and connect to the main speaker terminals. Really you need to buy a receiver with a sub out to do it properly. Sell this one and buy another.

I have a Yamaha rx-v367. The HDMI plays video from my blue Ray but no sound. Tuner, no sound. IPod, no sound. Phone was hooked up in multiple inputs. No sound. I'm stuck here. Please help.

It sounds like the Yam can switch video sources but the audio amplifier section is dead. Although I'm not familiar with this unit, simple logic tells me that unless it's a mulit-channel and/or surround sound" setting, the audio section of your Yamaha has failed. If the Yam has speaker protection mode (5-10 sec. delay when 1st turned on) it's possible that a defective speaker (or speaker wire) could be causing the protection circuit to NOT connect amp-to-speakers. Disconnect one speaker at a time (at rear connection on Yamaha) to see if audio returns.

Paradigm pdr80 no sound

If it is a powered sub, the sub power supply may have failed. There might be an open fuse.

How do i connect ms 10 sub to yamaha RX-V1065 amp, I am using 2 monster cables.

The ms 10 is an active sub, so all you should do is connect the Subwoofer output on the rear of your amp to the LFE input on the sub with a simple audio cable.

I need Dish Network remote code for RX-V795 Amp please

Hi my name is Mike Houston of DISH Network and I see you arelooking for the remote codes for your Yamaha RX-V795 5.1. The codes are; 733,747, 730, 731, 732, 745 and 663. To address the remote to the Yamaha you willwant to press and hold the desired mode button (TV, VCR, and AUX) until theentire mode button backlights come on, then release. The next thing you want todo is press the number 2 and enter the three digit code (the light will blinkoff after each digit is entered and then return to a steady light.) After youenter the 2 and the three digit code press the Pound (#) button, if the codeentered is valid for the remote, the mode light flashes three times. If thereare anymore questions please e-mail me at

Getting nothing out of this speaker. Was clicking for a while. Power light is on.Can I open it up and just hook up the speaker by itself to check that part It is a pdr 8 subwoofer

That would be one way to isolate the problem to either the woofer or its amp.

But do you know that it's getting an audio signal from your ?? unnamed source? Its setup could be at fault.

Or you could jack a CD player or any other audio source directly into the sub amp and see if THAT works. Start with something low as you won't have control of the volume.

I have a 110v power input Paradigm PDR10 and would like to convert it to 220/240. I'm sure it's a case of change the series connection to parallel on the transfomrer but I'm not sure the exact functions...

I have the same problem. An external transformer would step down the voltage, but it wouldn't help with the frequency, which would still be 50Hz. Paradigm says there's a risk of burnout if an unmodified PDR-10 is run at 50Hz rather than 60Hz
