The reason you may find it difficult to connect the Sony Receiver to the Jensen JS650 is that the JS650 does not have a line level input (RCA) to match the RCA subwoofer output of the STR-DE597 receiver. In this case, all you need to do is connect an extra set of speaker wires from the "Speaker B" Left and Right speaker connections on the back of the Sony to the speaker input connectors on the Jensen. On the front panel of the Sony, select speakers A+B settings so that the subwoofer is on in parallel with the front speakers.

I hope this answer is helpful to your home system set up.

The Jensen JS650 does not accept line level input so you need to use the Front B speaker output from your Sony receiver and not the RCA subwoofer output. Even though your subwoofer is active, it does not support line level (RCA) signals.

Just connect the subwoofer as you would a pair of speakers. Once connected, you make sure the front panel speaker switch on the Sony is set to A+B so you get sound from your existing speakers (A) and subwoofer (B).

I hope that works for you.

I have the sony str-de1075 reciever.i want to hook up a sub-woofer.but it only has 2 single port.not your reg.rca ports.what do i do..thanks..

Sorry but it's not clear enough what kind of subwoofer (passive or active) you want to use. The passive one has no power supply connection, the active one has a power supply connector and the audio connector can be connected at the "audio out" for the subwoofer, at the rear panel of your STR-DE1075. Take a look at this photo:

Can I connect a active subwoofer to my SONY STR-DE597 Powerful 6.1 channel AV Receiver

Yes, it only supports an Active Subwoofer. That's what the Sub Pre-Out is for.

Your sub will take that input, possibly split to two RCA connectors, and its internal amplifier will do the rest. Its own manual will give the specifics.

How can i get the dts sound field to work. Shouldn't it automatically switch to that sound field. I have a samsung bluray dvd that hooked up to it.  The dolby pro logic and pro logic 2 indicator...

If you are playing media that has both dolby digital audio and dts audio, your player and your receiver will decode the first audio codec listed first by default unless you select it otherwise yourself. If your remote or receiver has an A.F.D. (auto format decode) button, press it until your display shows that the sound source is dolby digital or DTS, whichever sound mode it was you wanted when you started your DVD.

Can't change FM input mode! Stuck at analog...

Tuner is only analog. As for the Video 1 input you need to go into the menu and change it to the digital port you want to use (optical, coaxial or HDMI) you can set only one input to each digital input port.

Flushing "PROTECT" on the screen of a SONY STR DG 910 Receiver

Try connecting one speaker at a time. The "protect" indicates a short or improper impedence (ohms) in one of the speaker lines. it may not be directly shorted, but I'll need to know what you have hooked up for speakers. Also, do you have any electronic meters?
