I've recently reconnected my system after some time in storage and a move across country.
When I play the "test tone" in the speaker set-up menu of my blu-ray player I hear nothing from the sub.
Receiver - Denon 5800
Blu-Ray - Samsung 3600A
Subwoofer - Alon Centris Powered Subwoofer
The Sub is connected to the Denon by a Subwoofer cable to the Left "Line In."
I'm using the analog multichannel outputs from the blu-ray player into the Denon.
When I do the "tone test" from the receiver itself I do get a response from the Subwoofer, but it seems overly "rattle-y" (for lack of a better word). Not the smooth rumble I remember.
To my knowledge, everything is set up correctly. (I made sure that Subwoofer was selected on the set up menus, etc) Sub is turned on. The sub volume is turned up.
Any thoughts? If it didn't work at all, I'd assume it was broken. But considering I'm getting a response from the Denon, I'm at a loss. (And the fact that it isn't a good sound from the Denon doesn't help)
And while I have your attention - second question - Is it recommended that I get a Y-adaptor and connect the "subwoofer cable" into both the Right and Left "Line in" on the subwoofer? (Assuming I get it to work properly) Thanks!
