Subwoofer not working with Denon 3313ci

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Since i have changed my AVR to the 3313ci, my subwoofer isn't working anymore. I have connected the cable to SW1 is it correct ? Is there something else i have to do ?

I didn't run audyssey, i did the configuration manually because i didn't like the results last time i ran it with my old Onkyo receiver

When i go to the speakers test tone, i can hear my subwoofer and control the decibel settings...

But when i go to "audio" menu, subwoofer is greyed out

The sub was working with the old receiver and still seems to be functional since i can hear it during the sound test in the "speakers test tone" menu

Are your other speakers set to LARGE or SMALL? What is the subwoofer setting?

You should run Audyssey anyway, you can always turn it off after the room calibration is finished. You at least want the channel levels configured.

To ensure you use Audyssey correctly as well as setup the mic on either a tripod or mic boom stand, review the Audyssey 101/FAQ Guide linked in my sig.

It was set to Large, i just tried with Small and my sub still isnt working. But im under the impression that i get better sound when its set to Large

Better sound from where? The sub is likely much more capable to reproduce the lower frequencies than are your FL/FR speakers, not to mention that Audyssey uses far more EQ sub filters than it does speaker filters.

Maybe you have lfe set to fronts only in the speaker set up? I agree with others, run audyssey anyway. You can still tweak things afterward. Or just not use it.

If the sub is set to YES and it is connected to the AVR's sub pre-out, then the LFE can only go to the sub.

@anarchoi - Also note that Audyssey only EQ's the speakers ... the AVR sets the speaker/sub distance, channel volume levels, and crossovers. Also you may simply want to just start over by resetting the microprocessor (p. 176 OM).

Ok after running audyssey the sub is working but i cant hear it very well. But it did a very BAD job with my speakers, not everything is messed up. the sound is louder on my back speakers and the right speakers are louder than the left one. When i watch TV most of the sound comes from the back speakers. Audyssey is really bad, i've tried it many times with my old receiver and never got a single result nearly acceptable...

Even my volume is messed up now. i used to watch TV with volume at 50 and now i must put it at 30 or else it is too loud

btw what am i supposed to set the crossover frequency at ? There is a physical button on my sub to set it... should i put it at 80hz?

ok now i have set everything back to 0db in the speakers test tone settings and everything is much better but the back speakers are still a little bit louder than the front ones. Except for the sub, i can barely hear it in the test tone when doing the sub testing (i can hear other speakers very well)

also im not sure what i should set the crossovers value in my AMP. Right now front is 100hz and center/surround are 60hz

Audyssey set the speaker levels so they were all the same loudness, I'd recommend putting them back to the levels audyssey set.  For crossover set everything to 80hz as a starting point.  Also check to be sure Dynamic EQ is turned off for starters.  With it on the surround channels will be louder than the front.

 

Give those settings a try and report back.

the speakers level were DEFINATLY not the same loudness and a lot of settings were detected wrong, especially the speakers distance

i'll turn off dynamic EQ and run the test again tomorrow hoping that the results will be better

Audyssey always ignores any personal modifications to the setup during measuring. As such you won't get any different measurements just of this.
Depending on your personal room situation Audyssey might be quite sensitive to the the mic positions during measurements.
You should check the "Setup Guide" in post 1 of the Audyssey thread.

If you review the Audyssey 101/FAQ Guide linked in my sig, the above questions are answered there. smile.gif
