Basically, I've got the sub plugged in to the Subwoofer port on the receiver. I set the amp gain to about half (40/80) and the crossover to 'Direct' then run the YPAO auto-setup. During setup I hear the sub produce some rather quiet test tones.
Now the problem, after setup, I try to play a movie, or some music, and I get no sound or vibration coming out of the subwoofer at all. If I go into the settings and select test tone, I can hear some noise out of the sub, but for any actual music etc there is nothing at all.
I know that the subwoofer works 100% because if I plug the sub into one of the Front Pre Output jacks on the receiver, it then plays along merrily with the music or movie as normal.
When I go into the setting and look at the Subwoofer's speaker level, it has been set to something very low like -9DB. I tried adjusting it to 0DB and all the way upto max and there is still no sound coming out of the sub. Also tried resetting the receiver to factory defaults, and checked to make sure it has the latest firmware.
My impression is that the receiver appears faulty, but I would greatly appreciate if anyone has some advice they could give me on this.
Also one last question. If I set my receiver to the 2-Channel Stereo listening mode, then will I normally still get sound out of the subwoofer? and if not, then what mode would I use to get just the front speakers and sub, but no center etc.
Thanks for all your time.
