The manual implies that 'subwoofer=Yes' is independent of the rest of the speaker settings, but that it would be set AFTER selecting the other speaker configuration from the list of 11 possibilities.

No sound from subwoofer


Make sure your front speakers are set to small in the setup menu. Regardless of how large your speakers are, if they are set to large the receiver will put the low frequency sound out the speaker jacks and turn off the subwoofer output

Hi, I cant get my bas to work with 5.1 only with my front right and front left. what channel should i use? please help


Please rephrase. "5.1" and "only ... front right and front left" are mutually exclusive. Look at manuals.

In general, bass is 'managed' by directing it toward or away from any speaker the user declares to be LARGE or SMALL, usually based on arbitrary cone sizes instead of bass handling capability. There 'managed' bass is rerouted to the presumed capable LFE/Bass/Subwoofer channel to avoid potential damage to bass-shy speakers. Therefore, if one lacks a subwoofer one has to tell that to the receiver and designate the other speakers as LARGE or the bass will get tossed in the bit-bucket

I get a red light on the back panel labeled power. No green light. I don't think the PV 600 is working but when I run the channel check through my Pioneer THX receiver I hear sound. Any thoughts?


The PV600 and PV400 have auto-on circuitry that turns the subwoofer on when a signal is presented, and turns off if no signal is detected for 15 minutes.

Not knowing which Pioneer receiver you have I have dropped in the steps for No Sound from Subwoofer:

• Check that the subwoofer is connected properly, switched on and the volume turned up.

• If your subwoofer has a sleep function, make sure it is switched off.

• Make sure that the Subwoofer setting is YES or PLUS (see Speaker Setting on page xx).

• The crossover frequency may be set too low; try setting it higher to match the characteristics of your other speakers (see Speaker Setting on page xx)

• If there is very little low frequency information in the source material, change your speaker settings to Front: SMALL / Subwoofer: YES , or Front: LARGE / Subwoofer: PLUS (see Speaker Setting on page xx).

• Check that the LFE channel is not set to -80dB , or a very quiet setting (see Bass Peak Level

on page xx).

• Check the speaker level settings (see Channel Level on page xx).

Regarding the Large vs Small assignment of speakers, what they mean isn't so much the physical size but the ability to handle real bass. Large if Yes.

Do large speakers have to be in front


This being a generic question, I can only provide a generic answr:

In multichannel rigs the question of Large vs Small denotes nit the 'size' but the ability to handle bass - Large presumed to be bass-capable. When you identify a particular speaker as 'small' in an AVR you're telling it to redirect bass to either the Subwoofer or the Main Speakers if they are 'Large'. Some AVR's also allow sharing the bass with the sub instead of having it all go there. If you have large speakers configured for bass the realism of surrounding bass sounds is better.

You can have many combinations of Large vs Small speakers in most AV setups but there usually are some dependencies. For example, bass can't be directed from one 'small' speaker to another; or if you select 'small' for the front speakers a Sub is presumed to exist.

I have all large speakers in my set.

The subwoofer is not working on our Bose 5.1 surround speakers.


First of all you should never indicate speakers as Large unless they can produce below 20Hz (which is very low), otherwise always set your speakers to Small.

Second, did you also indicate in teh setupmenu that you have a subwoofer? Because if all speakers are set to Large some receivers will omit a subwoofer because Large indicates the speakers can reproduce all sounds even below 20Hz.

So walk through your setup menu, say YES when the sub (SFW) is asked for and that should do the trick.

You need to buy an active (self-amplified) subwoofer. Attach it to the Subwoofer Preout connector.

Go into Speaker Setup (SP SYS/SETUP Button near upper right side of Op Panel) and follow the prompts.

The parameter we're most interested in is the question "Subwoofer Yes" or "No".

Some guidance when selecting speaker parameters for the rest of the channels:

SMALL vs LARGE: This has nothing to do with size so much as it deals with the BASS handling capacity of the speakers. If you say SMALL, most low frequencies from those channels will be re-routed from them to the Subwoofer. If you say LARGE the channels will still get the low frequencies they deserve.

I imagine you would be able to answer LARGE for all of your speakers.

Even if you have all LARGE speakers defined the Sub will still have work to do as it will be dealt the LFE (Low Frequency Effects) from encoded movies and all or most of the content below certain frequencies.

Subwoofer


I suppose that your system requires an active subwoofer, and that you provide one. Some systems, if SPEAKER SIZE in SETUP are set to LARGE for front or center speakers, do not send signal to sub, system redirect signal to front or center speaker. Try to check this.

Can i use small satelite speakers with my big front speakers?


Hi, I asume your setting up a home theater with five speakers a center left and right and rear surrounds don't know if you have a subwoofer. The large speakers in the front will work fine if you set the amp to large front speakers the bass will be sent to these. If you have a subwoofer set, the amp to small front speakers and the bass will be directed to it. Also try to get a center channel speaker that sounds somewhat like your large speakers.
