    I have an Pioneer VSX-D2011 en 4 AEGIS EVO 3 and the EVO 3 Centre speaker. I was wondering i've i could use a subwoofer, since i mostly watch dvd's.
    So, i'm testing an MJ Acoustics Reference 100 at the moment. I've hooked the subwoofer up to the subwoofer connection on my Pio 2011.
    Put the other end of the cable in the right side of the low input.

    I've run the speaker setup and he found all large speakers and the sub. With the test i hear the sub, so it's working. (not that loud b.t.w.)
    But, when i test it with one of my dvd's, there is no difference.
    I can feel the speaker is working slightly, but i cant hear a big change.
    I must do something wrong. I put the level gain on the sub to the max, but still no diffenrence then without a sub.
    Can anyone :lease: tell me what i'm doing wrong??

    Forgive my enlish .... :rolleyes:

    Siemed,

    have you enabled the subwoofer in your setup (see the manual on how to do this)? If your surround speakers are set to small then it needs to be set to on or yes. If your surround speakers are set to large then it needs to be set to, I think, 'plus'.

    Check the cross over setting, try it at 80 Hz.

    If your speakers are set to large that means none of the bass will be redirected to the sub, only what is in the .1 channel. Put all the other speakers to small.

    Also make sure that the 2011 is receiving the 5.1 signal (ie you arent in PCM mode on the DVD player) and that it is on the DD setting, ie not stereo or DP II.

    Well, it works. I did not think that a subwoofer would make this much difference, but it does.
    It works fine now. The only think i still don't understande is the subwoofer connector.
    There a two ways to connect the subwoofer to the receiver. You have the low input and the high input. The high input is a very different conncetor.
    But i can only find one subwoofer connector on my receiver.
    Is there an connector on the Pioneer 2011 for high input??
