My powered subwoofer no longer works through the receiver

if you have your front and centers set to 'small' you want your Bass out to be subwoofer only, and the rca jack labeled 'sub out' is the only place to connect your sub to if you want to control the frequencies with your reciever. I dont know the brand of your sub, or the inputs on the back of it to advise you where to connect, but it sounds like it worked for you at one time, but suddenly it does not

Power sub woofer is not working on my pioneer vsx-81txv everything is working all the speakers except the power sub connection at the back all i can hear is the hissing sound when i try to connect the sub...

Hissing? How loud? A sub isn't even capable of making high frequency sounds at normal volumes.

The Pioneer manual would tell you how to enable and test the subwoofer output.
Page 17 and the MACCV procedures on Page 33 (auto) or 43 (manual)

I have a Fisher RS-909 Surrond Sound amplifier. It has no "sub out" jack. I had the sub-woofer working in the past by wiring it as shown in the manual. The problem is that the system was in...

Alright i had a chance to look over things, this is how you are going to hook up the sub. first we'll be connecting the surround sound unit to the sub woofer.
surround sound unit sub woofer
left front: positive (+) <-----to------------->(+) left speaker level in
negative ( - )<- - -to- - - - - - ->( - ) left speaker level in

right front: positive (+) <-----to------------->(+) right speaker level in
negative ( - )<- - -to- - - - - - >( - ) right speaker level in

now that the surround sound unit is connected to the sub woofer you will need to connect the front surround sound speakers to the sub woofer.
sub woofer front surround sound speaker
left speaker level out (+)<-----to--------> (+) left front speaker
left speaker level out( - ) <- - - to- - - - ->( - ) left front speaker

right speaker level out (+)<-----to--------> (+) right front speaker
right speaker level out( - ) <- - - to- - - ->( - ) right front speaker

Alright now that the wires are all over the place and plugged in
turn everything on and see how it sounds. let me know if everything is working as it should. if you need help with anything else or if something does not seem right please feel free to contact me via e-mail or phone

Some weeks ago the sub stopped working. Thought dog had chewed the coaxial driver cable, but not shorted (now). Tried another sub w/o success.

Hi, I went to the Denon website and they have no documentation there for your receiver.
But do not frown, I have some good suggestions for you.
0 Don't beat the dog. After all, it's their job to chew things.
1 Get a new, un-chewed cable and see what happens between the sub output and the sub woofer. If it works, your in business. If it does not work. Don't be discouraged . Go to step #2
2 If the sub output on the Denon has failed, and everything else is good. There is another way to use your sub.
Install a patch system using the Headphone output from the front of the Denon. It may seem odd, but it works exceptionally well for the following reasons. It works on all signal sources. So if you are not playing a home theater source, you still have the use of your sub.
You will need the following adapters.
1 A Male stereo phone jack to female mini-phone jack. (Something that would accept typical small headphone sets such as those on an iphone).
2 A stereo "Y" connector that that has a single stereo male mini-phone jack that has two "RCA" female jacks.
3 A simple RCA male to male stereo cable pair as is commonly used to connect CD players, etc. i.e. separate red and white RCA connectors at both ends.
1 and 2 above may be available as a single unit combined with each other.
Take these adapters and connect the Item 1 into the Receiver, Item 2 plugged into Item 1, Item 3 plugged into Item 2 and finally the other end of Item 3 plugged into the two female RCA jacks mounted onto the back of the sub-woofer. If the sub only has one female RCA connector, get a RCA "Y" connector that has a single male end to 2 female ends.
This setup will work perfectly with any sub. The reason is as follows. Most decent subs have an adjustable high frequency cut off. So you can vary it from about 20Hz up to about 140 Hz.
I recommend that it is cut off at 80 hz. This way the bass transition is usually seamless between the woofer and the rest of the system. .
Then adjust the woofer volume control in a similar manner.
If it all works out, give the dog a treat and enjoy yourself.
I really hope this helps, I love my sub woofer as well.
Let me know how this turns out.
If you have any questions please post them on the site and I'll get back to you ASAP.
Best Regards,
Mark

Amp powers on but sub does not come on

I would double-check your RCA's on the amplifier. You should hear a thud if you unplug them. If not they are either not hooked up or defective.

Buzzing sound from woofer when I plug in

If the woofer works fine when plugged into any other port, I would say that you have a connector on the receiver that has a loose connection or possibly a cold solder joint (poor or broken solder joint). RCA jacks can be stressed quite a lot especially if you use cables that have very tight connectors. The female RCA jack gets wiggled or twisted when trying to remove a cable and this causes solder joints to crack. I would have a look at that connector on the receiver..

Could a ground stop your woofer from working?

First check the speaker wire from the amp to the sub, see if it's connected right. Second check the rca cables that goes from your amp to the back of the deck. I f both wires are still connected fine try to replace the rca cables. If it still doesn't work the rear out put at the back of your deck, where the rca's are connected are bad. FYI deck is bad.

RCA Sub-Woofer

Did you try making sure the subwoofer is turned on under the set up menu on the Sony Receiver?

Press Set Up, Press the left or right button above the scroll wheel until you get to SW. It should say SW: ON or SW: OFF. If it says SW: OFF, use the Scroll wheel to scroll right until it says SW: ON. Also, make sure you aren't in 2CH mode, try A.F.D or surround sound.
