Question about JVC RX-818V Receiver
The Bose satellite system including small cubes and a woofer does not actually include a "subwoofer". The box that you are referring to as a "subwoofer" is actually just the woofer component of the speaker system, contrary to popular belief. You do not want to connect the cubes directly to your stereo as you will blow them if you do. The woofer contains a piece of electronic wizardry known as a "crossover". The crossover sends certains frequencies to the woofer and others to the cubes. You must connect the two together. I suggest you purchase a power subwoofer and connect to the subwoofer lineout on your receiver or buy the unit that was made to go with this receiver if there was one. Good luck!

Maybe you should check speaker settings? Is there options to set "speakers large/small"? Some receivers woudn't play sound on subwoofer when speakers are set to "large".

Go to the following website www.servicemanuals.net where you can get the service manual for $17.00, unbelieveable, don't you think? The service manual should help you sort out your hookup problems. Good luck.
