I have my B speakers hooked up in my basement to listen to music (L/R stereo only) but when I have only the B speakers selected and put the stereo mode on, sound still comes out of the subwoofer (which is upstairs). Can anyone tell me how I can have ONLY my L/R B speakers active without having to unplug my subwoofer?

Re: Subwoofer heard when only B speakers selected
This is really weird. Normally, the subwoofer must be turned off when you turn on B speakers. But, hold on.. I have recently tried to do the same thing as you do, and the result is the same as yours. The problem is that you have to turn off A speakers completely when you activate Bs. If you have an A/B Speakers switch, first push the A to turn them off, after that press "B" to listen to music downstairs. I hope it works.

If your receiver has a dedicated subwoofer line level output, we recommend connecting your subwoofer to this jack. Most receivers will have just one (mono) subwoofer output, while quite a few subs require two inputs. You can use an RCA "Y" adapter cord , which is a cable with one female RCA jack at one end, and two male RCA plugs at the other. Some receivers require menu settings (such as "sub-on" or "front speakers-small") that must be made before the sub output will be active.
When you are playing cd,s set your amp to stereo and the sub should work,prologic should never be used for playing music as this destorys the sound stage,if you are useing small speakers make sure you have set the size in the setup menu and the cross over to about 80hertz.
when the stereo or mono listening mode is selected only front speaker and subwoofer produce sound--------make sure that speakers are configured correctly. and you select surround sound in listening mode.
IF YOU HAVE THE SAME AMOUNT OF CABLES AS SPEAKERS HOOK THESE UP TO YOUR AMP THEN SUB TO SUB OUT PUT ON YOUR AMP WITH A SUB CABLE OR PHONO THAT REACHES FROM AMP TO SUB.SET AMP TO ALL CHANNEL STEREO OR MODE THAT SENDS STEREO TO ALL SPEAKERS,ALSO SET SPEAKER SIZE IN SETUP OF AMP TO SMALL AND SUB OUT PUT TO SUB ONLY.YOU SHOULD GET MUSIC AROUND THE HOUSE.IF SOUND IN SAY BEDROOM IS NOT AS LOUD AS BATHROOM USE THE TEST TONE TO LEVEL OUT EACH SPEAKER.
It is showing two because the source of the sound that you are listening is probably stereo only thus only two sound comes out. You could try to change the mode to 5 channel stereo or prologic or dts-6channel mode in the surround mode to hear your sound in all 5 speakers. best thing to do is watch a dvd which would use all 5.
Regarding a/b yes if your receiver supports it which i think it does there should be place for it in the back of the receiver.
