Question about Pioneer Vsx-822-k 5.1-channel 3d-ready Network A/v Home Theater Receiver
Just got a Pioneer VSX-822 receiver, hooked up my Klipsch speakers and it sounded amazing. Got a Polk powered subwoofer and hooked it up to the sub pre-out using a single rca cable, ran the auto setup and the test tones came through the subwoofer, but no sound comes through the subwoofer when listening to music, watching movies, anything. The subwoofer is turned on, the volume is up, and the frequency is appropriate but I have literally no sound.
Go to manual setup, selct the subwoofer and set it to Pus.

I had the same problem. Dont know why the receiver set it up this way but grab your remote, go down to the lower right and select ch setup. Keep on pressing it till your receiver says SW. Then press lev+ on your remote to change the db on your powered sub.

Have you set speaker setup configuration to SUBWOOFER YES? Also check SUBWOOFER OUT ON/OFF button on the front panel.

Yes techtod you are right you do have to tell the receiver what you want it to do usually on the front panel you can access set up menu and go into input set up This is an example Say you plugged the dvd into optical one or coax 1 you must go to the input that says dvd click down till you highlight dig input and then select optical 1 or coax 1 there can be as many as 8 digital inputs so just check wich one you plugged it into and then tell the amp then you should be back to watching your digital movies

That type of subwoofer is not used with this receiver. This receiver actually outputs no power for a subwoofer, therefore only needs a plain ol' rca signal wire. This is due to the fact that you need a powered sub... one that you plug in to the wall and it has its own built in amp. you simply run an rca from yyour 505s to that sub.

Yes, go to your menu then setup then speakers then subwoofer, it's probably in "LFE" it should give you the option of Sub, LFE, or Both. that should do the trick. Also check the crossover point and season to taste. While your at it; there should also be a setting for speaker level, toggle down to sub and adjust the sub out level, it's probably at it's minimum setting. Hope this helps

Make sure that the sound field/programme you have selected is dolby digital not stereo.(On the amp)
You also need to check on the display that is says DIGITAL not ANOLOUGE, as only a digital input, Optical fibre cable, HDMI, COAX will be a digital signal.
If you are using red and white rca connectors, it is not going to work, as this is an Anolouge signal.
