I have a Kenwood VR-507 and a Kenwood SW-35HT subwoofer connected to it. When I first started connecting all the cables on my first home theatre system, the subwoofer was working. Well, during the course of my "experiments", I noticed that the SW-35HT wasn't producing any sound at all. I don't know if the subwoofer has failed or the VR-507 subwoofer output has failed. So if anybody can tell me what steps to remedy the situation, I'd really appreciate it. Thank you.

I suppose you could, but you are talking about a driver (speaker) that was not designed for that cabinet size and amplifier used in the Kenwood, There are differences in speaker design besides power rating and impedance.
Yes. It needs to know you have a subwoofer or it won't send low frequencies out to one. Then you have to calibrate its level to match the rest of your speakers. Hit the SETUP section in the manual (available at retrevo.com).
It would be the rare TV that originated anything approaching the sound quality of any other audio source in your home or could process digital multichannel audio anywhere near as well as the Kenwood. What model TV did you say this was? Its internal audio controls could also be part of the problem.
TV-related audio is best derived from as close to its source as possible. Your cable, satellite DVD, BD all have superior digital multichannel audio outputs. Why would you want to filter them through the TV first?
Those sources may also have HDMI which would be great for the TV; they also have standard RCA stereo outputs, each of which could be suitable to run to the TV's RCA inputs if you only want to watch news or weather with lo-fi sound.
Bottom line recommendation: BEST video to the TV; best audio to the Kenwood.
on the back of your receiver is a subwoofer pre-out, connect one cable here, and connect the other end of this cable to your subwoofer - line level in. (depends on your subwoofer and receiver) but that's how mine is connected. yours will be similar.
PROCESS OF ELIMINATION: connect each of the other speaker in the working to check to see if the wires and other speakers are working. If all speaker play when connected to the working channel check all other cables and connections....use the tuner as an working source to test. If that doesn't help then you may have an bad channel in your amp and may need to be repaired.
