    My Def Tech Subwoofer (Supercube 1) is connected to my LFE Output of my Pioneer VSX-1018 and worked well until I recently moved. After I settled in my place I set up my Home Theater and discovered my Subwoofer is no longer working. I tried reconfigurating the speakers using Auto MCACC, changing all my speakers to Small and SW "Yes", double checked all my connections. Still no sound. Please help. Thanks.

  • Zone 2 with 1018?

    AS far as I know, I cannot connect ZOne 2 speakers on Zone2 connections without an amplifier. Am I right? This is the only thing why I went with Onkyo 706 and not 1018. 1018 looks much better. Onkyo is bland.
