I’m a rookie to the home theater hobby and have recently purchased a new system based on some great reviews from this site. My system consists of a Marantz NR1603 Receiver, Energy Take 5.0 Speakers, and a BIC America V1020 Sub. After hooking everything up and running Audyssey, the BIC doesn't work and, for the life or me, I can’t figure out why. The Marantz says there is no sub-woofer detected.
I have it hooked up with an RCA cable from the pre-amp out on the receiver to the “sub-in” on the back of the BIC. It is powered on, the cross-over is set at 120, the volume is at 50%, phase is set at “0”, and the receiver type is set at “Digital”. I have checked the connection numerous times and have even looked at the fuse. Everything is in order.
To make things more complicated, I hooked up my old sub from a cheap all-in-one system and it works fine. Audyssey recognized it and calibrated it accordingly, so I know it’s not the Marantz or the cable.
Before I go through the hassle of returning this thing, I would greatly appreciate any suggestions.
Thanks in advance!
