Sub remote works with two passive satallite monitors but sub has no sound

I've had two passive sampson monitors for a while. I just purchased an active sub-woofer for the set up. To run the two passive monitors I've used the Crate SPA-200 amp. The sub has a built in amp. On page 12 of the manual it gives me the setup for this type of rig. Even after following these steps it still does not come on at all. The remote that comes with the sub works for the satallite monitors as well. the pdf manual for the Crate is on google as well as the pdf for the Sampson sub on page 12. The mixer that I have is the Mackie 1202 vlz the pdf is the computer setup also in google. I might be missing something ,Please help

If sub has two signal outputs and if the monitors are full range (passive crosover built in), put mixer outputs to the sub and signal outputs of the sub to amps in.If not mixer outputs to th amp and its signal outputs to the sub in.Or you can use main out of the mixer for the monitors and rec out for the sub.Its just few XLR or jack cables extra.Just make sure that the mixer,sub and the amp are on the same power phase otherwise you'll have brrrrrrrrrrr on the speakers

SW-910, blown speaker or ? makes rattle/buzz sound. replace speaker and/or change to passive type sw?

i would suggest replacing it rather than fixing. The cost of the repair will be about the same.
if you went to a passive sub/seperate power amp setup you could get a much higher quality unit, but it would cost you considerably more cash.

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

My roadmaster subs wont work with this receiver in the sub jack. What am I doing wrong?

They're passive speakers and the sub jack only puts out LFE Line Level. It's to drive an amp that drives a sub. Besides, it's a car speaker and needs an enclosure to separate the forward sound pressure from the rear sound pressure or it will partially cancel itself out.

I purchased an infinity Infinitesimal Servo Subwoofer. Powers on, but no sound. When I turn the Volume/gain knob the woffer jumps forward and back like a power surge. If I turn the gain all the way up the...

So this is a passive sub and you say the unnamed amp makes it act like serious direct current is at work on it (pushes OUT then IN).

Then you mention another amp that makes it work ok.

WHY are you asking what's wrong with the sub? It appears to me that your original amp is the problem. How odes any other speaker work with that amp?

Subwoofer noise

You didn't say is your sub active or passive.If its active first check signal cables from theater system,power line of the sub, it has to be the same phase as the system.If its passive take a voltmeter disconnect the sub from the system and measure for DC voltage on the SUB output on the system when its OFF.If DC voltage is present your amp is damaged.It can also be that the preamp circuit for the sub doesn't mute the input when unit is on stand by and you hear frequency of your power supply (50-60Hz) on the sub
