Re: there is no sound on my powered sub
Since you have a powered sub, the feed to it is a line level signal. If your unit is only 6 months old, it should still be under warranty. Check. If it is under warranty, have it repaired under warranty. Otherwise, update this and we'll dig deeper.

The receiver's out put sections are grouped in pairs. Front left and right in one output, rear left and right in second output, and center channel and sub output on the third. Sounds like a semiconductor or semiconductors have gone bad in the center & sub output.
Very common problem with today's receivers. Receivers made today don't have a true preamp section in the amplifier and do not amplify the sound to the extent of an older receiver. I have large 15" front speakers on my system, and have stuck with my 15 year old receiver just because I know that a new receiver will not have the power to drive them well. Many of the newer receivers need to be turned up to 50-60% before you can even hear anything from the speakers.
well as long as all signals are routed through the Denon your on the right track, now what else you have to do is connect all devices to the reciever do not loop one device through another. Also you have to try the different surround fields to hear the one you like the best for music I use 5Ch stereo for movies the surround field varies based on the type of movie
Try hooking up a different signal input to your powered sub, another
stereo or even a dvd players audio output to the sub will work for a
test. Just make sure the subs gain is down before starting. If it
still not producing sound, the subwoofers amplifier is bad. I hope this
That's a 4-channel amp, not a 2-channel, which makes me wonder exactly how you have it hooked up to your sub. Is the LED light on the amp coming on? How many subs do you have hooked up to it, and how is it wired?
