Hi,

     I have a new Onkyo NR626 which I am trying to connect to my Bose Lifestyle 6 Series II system via RCA. The Onkyo has two Sub Woofer Pre Out RCA outputs, which I have connected to the Aux In of by Bose Unit. I have tried playing with all possible menu settings on the Onkyo 626, but am not able to get any sound output through the Sub Pre Out at all. Can anyone please instruct me on what settings I need to enable/disable on the 626 to get sound from the Sub Pre Outs? I have set the Audio TV Out main to ‘Off’, so sound does not output to the TV via the HDMI Main.

 

Warm Regards,

Shivaram Venkatesh

Try running the Audyssey setup. It should detect the subwoofer and turn on the subwoofer channel output.

When all else fails - RTFM!

You are using the wrong outputs. You'll only get low frequencies from the Sub Outs. Use Zone 2 Pre Outs to your Bose unit. I'm pretty sure your Bose has no speaker level inputs.

Go Niners.

You need only connect one of the sub pre-outs to the Accoustimass module and then as suggested, simply run the Audyssey setup procedure with the setup mic supported using either a camera tripod or ideally a mic boom stand. Review the Audyssey 101/FAQ for more helpful information.

If I'm not mistaken the Aux-in on the OP's Bose is full range, not a sub input.
