First post here so I wasn't sure whether or not to post here or in the Subwoofer forum. Either way hopefully someone can help me with my problem. I have a Pioneer vsx-822-k receiver powering two Paradigm Millinia 300 front speakers and a Polk PSW505 woofer. I want to stick with a 2.1 setup. The Paradigm fronts are working perfectly but the subwoofer is giving me issues. I have a subwoofer cable running from the "Pre-out Sub" output on the receiver to the LFE input on the sub. When I utilize the pioneer MCACC microphone assisted setup both the speakers and the sub can be heard. So basically this tells me the sub is getting a signal from the receiver and is hooked up properly (maybe??). Anyway, any other source such as music from my PS3, PS3 games, PS3 blu-ray, and even an ipod hook up from a headphone jack to rca cable do not give me any sound from the subwoofer.
I've also tried the manual setup which let me set the front speakers to small, subwoofer to "yes", and then set the cross over to 80 hz. Still no luck. Thanks for the help!
