I got the BIC V1020 and It doesn't do nothing. The sony hd700 receiver says it has a sw connected. I get real close to it and I could barely hear it. It seems like it's sending the bass to the speakers. IF I turn the volume all the way up on the sw, the speakers seem to get more bass.


Thanks to anyone that helps

Did you set all your speakers to SMALL? That way all the bass gets routed to the subwoofer.


Did you calibrate you system once you added the sub?


Did you adjust/set a crossover for your speakers?


What brand/model are your other speakers?


There is also a volume control on the sub, perhaps you need to turn it up?

Do you have hd700 or STR-DH700?


The STR-DH700 you can first turn the subwoofer pre-out ON(yes/no)


Make sure your subwoofer itself is turned on and turn the cross-over on the subwoofer is at its highest (160hz) level

STR-DH700, I did all that and nothing. I called BIC and they said I got a DOA sub. Gotta send it back and wait another week to complete my system. The speakers and receiver sound really good with dts ma.

That was going to be my next thought

k, I return my bic v1020 and purchase another bic v1020. In both of them I haven't seen the woofer move. Did I get another defective sub or I'm I doing something wrong? On this one I feel more rumble. I have a sony dh700,take 5 speakers. Well, I found out it's name a cone the thing that I haven't seen move.

Did the sub get a test tone when running Auto Setup?

The STR-DH700 does NOT send a test tone to the subwoofer during autosetup you just have to turn it on through the reciever menu

crazyrob425 is correct that it does NOT sent a test tone during Auto Calibration.

But actual you can perform a manual test tone to the subwoofer, see page 35 in OM.


Qestions:

Does the SW and LFE indicator lights up when your source is playing? (see page 9 and reference #1 and #2 pic)


Maybe you should reset the unit to return settings back to factory default. (see page 29 in OM)


Subwoofer Setting:

Power to "ON" (for now and set to AUTO after getting it all going)

Phase to "0"

Volume to "1/2"

Crossover Freq to "MAX" (the highest setting)

Crossover Switch to "ON" (or "OFF" it doesn't matter since crossover is control by the receiver)


Perform AUTO Calibration


In System Menu Parameters Settings:

SW SPK Subwoofer to "YES"

FRT, CNT, SUR SPK to "SMALL"

Set CRS FREQ

How have you connected your subwoofer to your STR-DH700, please give detail!


When you turn on your STR-DH700 and it displays the speakers in the upper right of the displate is their a box with SW?


Is the volume of the Subwoofer turned up?


What is your phase set at?


Do a test hook up with it by hooking up using regular speaker wire. Make sure you set your front speakers to large after you do this. And make sure the volume is up on the subwoofer about half way and the cross over frequency it about 120hz


If the hooking up by speaker wire doesn't get the subwoofer to work then you got another defective sub. If the sub works with speaker wire the subwoofer is not the problem its the reciever

SW does light up but, not lfe. I also have all those settings. It seems to work but, I would like to know if the cone has to move. I also have to put it to 7 on volume to really feel it.

1. I have it connected in the sub out and lfe in on the sub

2.SW does show up

3.Yes, to really feel it I have to put up to 7

4.phase 0


Does the cone have to move forward and backwards with my sub? I haven't seen it move and would like to know if its normal.

Do you feel air coming out of the port when you feel bass?


As long as you can hear the lows and bass thats all you need

I feel air but, not from the port(woofer side). I did a tone test and I could hear it but, barely. How could I make it louder? I have the volume of the sub halfway. I couldn't hear it before when I ran the test tone. Maybe it was because of the carpet.

Green, I guess it works. I did the test tone and put the volume up on the receiver and I hear a rumble when It plays the sub. Is it better to have the sub off the carpet?
