Hello all,
I recently bought a sub for my AV reciever (Sony str-dh810) but when I connect it, no bass comes out! No sound at all comes from the sub although it is on and connected properly to the AV reciever using a 1/LFE cable. I've tried everything to make it work, but I thought could having 2 bookshelf speakers Bi-wired to the AV reciever stop the Sub from recieving the bass?

Any help would be appreciated
Thanks
Arran

Did you tell your receiver you have "large" or "full range" speakers (forget which way Sony goes) and not change to small? Did you tell your AVR you now have a subwoofer connected? Go thru the manual on setup....

Pull out your manual and the mic. You need to redefine your speaker setup, letting the receiver know you have a subwoofer and run through the auto calibration.

Did you follow your manual for setup? Or after following setup procedure, nothing?

Since he hasn't posted in well over 2 months one would assume that he did what he should have in the first place, read the owners manual, thus ending the problem.
