    I recently painted my living room. I disconnected my speakers(Klipsch RF3) and my subwoofer(Infinity BU120) to move them to another room so I didn't have to cover so much stuff up with tarps. When disconnecting my sub, all i did was unplug the power cord and the RCA's that led into the sub. I didn't disconnect anything from the receiver(Kenwood VR-309). When I moved everything back, and connected my speakers, my sub seemed not to be giving me anything for sound, though the power light is on. Everything else seems to be working fine. I don't understand why it would have stopped working. Please help.

    It sounds like something isn't hooked up right. Check for the following things:
    • Is the RCA plug connected to the sub's output or input connection? (It should be connected to the input line.) While you're at it, double check that that it's connected to the sub out on the back of your receiver.
    • Is the Power Switch in the ON position or even in the Auto ON position? This is something that could easily be missed.
    • Is the sub connected to a power outlet that works? You never know what might have happened when you painted the room. Did you mess around with the electricity in the room at all?
    • Check to make sure that the Subwoofer is set to the ON position on your receiver. If you moved all of your gear out of the room when you painted, perhaps the subwoofer setting on your receiver got turned off by accident or maybe it reset to OFF when you unplugged it.
    Good luck. I hope you locate the problem soon.

    Also,be sure to set all speakers to small in the receiver's setup menu.
