I am not sure what is wrong with my psw10 sub. The sub initially worked fine with my front 3 speakers for the first few days I have owned it. I recently hooked up my surround speakers to my receiver and now the sub has no output.
The speakers are hooked to a Pioneer VSX-1018AH-K receiver. All the speakers work except the sub. When I run the auto mcacc setup it no longer detects the subwoofer, setting it to NO. It used to detect it when I ran the three front speakers and the sub. Not sure what the problem is?
I have an rca cable running from the sub out on receiver to the L input on the sub. I have tried multiple cables with no difference. I have the crossover on the sub set to 160hz and the gain set to about 40% of the max. The auto mcacc reports that the volume on the sub is too low and that I should try setting it higher. I have tried many different gain settings and it always says its too low.
I have manually set the sub to YES and crossover to 80hz on the receiver however I do not get any bass output from the sub when watching movies with a 5.1 track. I have manually adjusted the sub output, on the receiver, from +5db to -5db with no difference. It is defaulted at 0db because it isn't detected by the auto mcacc.
Also the red standby light is on all the time regardless of what the switch is set to (off, auto, on). It doesn't change to green anymore even when receiver shows that a lfe signal is present and being output on receiver front panel. The only time it goes out is if I unplug the sub from the outlet.
Does anyone have any ideas before I return it for a replacement?
