The subwoofer preout is not working

I just got the RX-V2700 and hooked it up. I can't find a way to make the subwoofer preout work. Through GUI I set everthing up but still none of the preouts are working. I'm lost. Please Help!

    The subwoofer has 2 input RCA Jacks and 2 output RCA jacks and 4 speaker wire connections for inputs and outputs its a Velodyne Sub.

  • Yodelenfritz Jan 08, 2008

    Ok. Thanks. But why can't I use the Subwoofer preouts?

  • Yodelenfritz Jan 08, 2008

    I have a single Pre-out for the subwoofer but 2 inputs for left and right on the Sub. I didn't try to split it. I will have to go to best buy or one of these places to see if they have the monster cable you are talking about. I will stop tomorrow.

    Thanks for your help.

I just bought a yamaha rx z1. i try to pluging to use the subwoofer is not working

If you have it hooked up to a TV via monitor out, it's easier to do. Press "menu" or "GUI menu" go to "manual setup" then "speaker settings" then "subwoofer" and select "both" If you need more help, post a comment and I can help you further.

Yamaha RX-V2700 no sound from any speaker outputs

Make sure that you have the correct input signal selected.
Also, check if the sound is not muted.
If you have a multi-room speaker switch, make sure it is set correctly to main speakers.

Hooking up a Logitech Z-2300 subwoofer to a Yamaha RX-V392 receiv

This is the exact same setup im lookng at, just a different Yamaha receiver (RX-V663). Since the 3.5mm headphone jack and and the sub preout are both 'line level' you just need to pick up a male RCA to female 3.5mm jack converter from radioshack. I'd expect it to be around $5-8.

I have already stripped my old 5.1 HTIB system rca connector to use the surround speakers with my receiver. They work but are cheap speakers. Im tempted to do something similar with the z-2300 speakers, much higher quality, but I would definitely use a converter instead of stripping to keep them backwards compatible.

Yamaha RX-V2700 skipping when playing a DVD on Toshiba D-R400

Sounds like a poor grounding issue between the units OR maybe they're not as compatible as the Mfg's say.

Could be a bad HDMI cable also. Most are made in the land of Nanking
