    So I finally got my Pioneer 811. I hooked everything up and I cannot get my powered sub to work. I have the JBL 12" 250 watt powered sub (cannot think of the model number). But I cannot get it to work now that I have hooked it up. I have tried different settings and even tried two different cables going to the sub. Any idea what is wrong, I hope it is not the sub.

    Have you set/told your reciever you are using a sub? If so, is the volume turn up on your reciever's sub setting?

    Sub is plugged in, right? You never know[​IMG]
    Doesn't sound good otherwise.
    How did you hook in the cables?

    yes it is pluged into the receiver and to the outlet. The green light is on (power) on the sub. So it seems like it is on and there is a signal but it is just not working.

    I have it pluged into the "sub woofer preout" it is connected with a Y adapter to regular red and white cables.

    I think I might take it to electronics store to have it looked at.

    Hopefully it's just a fuse or something simple. Good luck!
