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 want to connect kenwood woofer sw-07 to pioneer amplifier vsx-d859tx. i am unable to connect please guide me.

Hello,

I don't recall correctly if your Pioneer has a sub out RCA connector, and if the Kenwood SW-07 has a low level input. So the usual way is to connect it using the speaker wires.
You connect either the FL or the FR to the sub and it should work.

Good luck

I have the same problem, your sub-woofer is passive and you need a powered sub-Wfr, more money is the only FIX!

SUB WOOFER

Connect it to the "subwoofer out" plugs on the back of the receiver, red is positive, and black is negative. If no "sub-out" then seperate amp with speaker level inputs and low-pass filter...

Good Luck

Sub woofer

Hello,
The subwoofer is totally independent from your Pioneer VSX-D412. You can check if it works like you did with a finger on the hot point of the RCA cable (not very good test, as you will hear noise and can't say if that means it works OK) or better connect a known receiver to the speaker connections in the sub and test to see if it’s working properly.
Regarding the receiver, you may not have enabled the VSX to output to the sub. Read the manual on how to check for that. Only Dolby Digital 5.1 signals will allow the sub out, in a receiver of this level. It normally will not let you use the sub in stereo mode. Some more complex units will allow you that, but I believe not this model.
Good luck

Amatuer needs sub-woofer advice for Pioneer VSX-454...

Based upon your description, the subwoofer is just a speaker and is taken from the normal speaker outputs. Run your A channel to the sub and then from the sub to the left and right front speakers. That should do it.
