    To test the subwoofer first turn the sub's volume all the way down and remove the sub cable from the receiver. Then connect the sub cable to either the right or left audio output of your DVD/CD player and begin playing a CD and slowly turn up the volume on the sub. It should make plenty of bass at a low setting.
