Pioneer VSX-01TXH no sound from subwoofer
Gear mentioned in this thread:
So I just picked up this receiver and everything works great except I can't get any bass out of my sub. I have three subs I've tried, a polk audio, a klipsh, and a yamaha, all good working subs. The cable is good as well. I've checked all the settings that I can come up with but I am not familiar with this receiver and feel that I am simply missing something. I can see the lfe indicator for when supposedly a bass signal is sent. I hope i didn't just get a bum receiver.
Did you use MCCAC to do initial setup?
Check crossover freq, speaker size(set to small), and double check your sub cable not plugged into a pre-out for something else, ive done this on my 03txh.
Set speakers all to large
Plug sub into any speaker preout and see if sub will play off any of those.
I would get a mike MCCAC is very useful.
Ill look at mine tonight to see if any setting jumps out at me that might be the cause of your problem.
YES. Check this. I did this on my 03.
i went through the settings last night nothing stood out that would cause this. I would recommend going through initial setup by plugging in mic from normal state but you don't have a mic. If your gonna keep the receiver and get it fixed you'll need the mic anyways. I would buy one on ebay or contact pioneer and see if they will send you one. Initial setup goes through all the speakers and detects them. I would be curious if this detection might activate the sub out, IDK but you'll need/want that mic anyways.
