Question about JVC RX-818V Receiver

4 Answers

JVC RX-809V Hi, I've got this great receiver but can't seem to get the subwoofer working. I'm hooking up a Bose subwoofer that allows satellite speakers. I can only seem to get the satellites working when they are hooked up directly. My user manual has also disappeared. Any thoughts on how to proceed or where I can get some direction? Thanks in advance. Regards, Bruce

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.

I have a JVC RX9010V and need to know where to wire the subwoofer on the back of the amp.

The JVC RX-9010V sub-woofer out port is an RCA pin connection at the top of the back panel, near the middle. It's between the Digital In ports and the DVD component IN. Crutchfield has a good picture of the back of the receiver on the product page: https://www.crutchfield.com/S-SBumAqV1JND/p_257RX9010V/JVC-RX-9010V.html . The manual is also available on the site. The direct link to the manual is https://pdf.crutchfieldonline.com/ImageBank/v20011025021500/Manuals/257/257RX9010V.PDF . However, the sub-woofer connection section on page 7 doesn't show the surrounding ports.

I hope this helps.

[email protected] have a jvc rx-809v and I was wondering if it was posibbie to hook up an a sansui amp to compinsate for the lack of base

You mean 'bass'.

Amplifiers only amplify what is already there in the signal. By design, with all controls set to neutral or flat, they don't create or loose anything.

Speakers, on the other hand, are responsible for turning the electrical input into moving air. Good bass usually requires moving a lot of air.

Poor speaker placement or speakers wired out of phase with each other can **** the bass out of a room.

Web search for articles on bass response and speaker placement.

This receiver has a built-in Equalizer. Perhaps you could use IT to compensate for the tonal shortcomings of the speakers and environment.

Connecting Bose 901 Series VI Direct Reflecting Speakers to JVC RX-8020VBK Receiver

in order to make those speakers sound good (if they can sound good at all) you need to use equalizer box witch came with them. If your receiver does not have tape monitor loop or preamp to amp jumpers you can not use those speakers. To be honest you do not loose much... none of this stuff is any good (sorry for bad news), but if you like those speakers (I know they have big fans, even if in HI-FI world, they not consider as good) you have to change you receiver.
