I Bought a sw - 12 ii today to replace the rf - 12d which worked great. The problem is that my receiver and sub dont seem to be playing nice with each other. I have a rx v667 yamaha receiver... anyone have any advice on how to get it to work? I loved the sub when i heard it demod, and now i would love to get it working smile.gif

Was it a 1:1 swap of subs with no change in the AVR? If so, all you should have to do is adjust the volume on the new sub to your desired listening level. Assuming you are using your reciever's LFE output, make sure the new sub's crossover is turned all the way up to bypass any internal cutoff which may be occurring. Also, make sure it is positioned in the same spot as it's location in the room can also have an effect.

Yes it is completely a 1:1 swap. Same location in the room and everything. I turned the subs crossover all the way to the highest setting (140 hz) and it doesnt seem to like to give me any volume still :\ The receiver is set at 100hz.

SW 12ii? didn't they stop making those in the mid 90s? Maybe I have my models mixed up.

Anyway, if it has RCA inputs AND outputs, be sure you didn't connect the subwoofer cable to one of the outputs on the subwoofer by accident. Happens a lot..smile.gif

Yes they did actually. This is a sub that i auditioned through craigslist over my now old rw-12d and loved it. It seems if i turn the volume up on the sub to 9 (out of 11) the sub starts working. So i guess i'm a happy camper!

Your sub goes up to ELEVEN? That's a very special sub! It's ONE LOUDER!

It's what sealed the deal when i made the purchase!... That and whoever was selling it had way to much money so he sold it to me for 175.
