Just got the Yamaha v373 to replace a old box Pioneer 5.1 set up and I can't seem to get the subwoofer to work with only using 2 front speakers. Is there some trick to this?

Set your speakers to small.


Set a crossover frequency (e.g., 80 - 120 Hz).

Have you configured your system as 2.1? Beyond that, what is the source content you are playing? If the source material is 5.1, LFE (the .1 channel) should go to the sub no matter how you configure the L/R speakers. If the source material is stereo, there's no LFE channel and you have to engage bass management so that the receiver will redirect low frequencies from the main channels to the sub. That's done by configuring the speakers as Small.
