Kenwood ts-950sdx sub rx
I bought TS-950SDX for my KENWOOD collection and it works great. Sub RX wored also but not a long time. I changed, as I suppose, something in program and now i do not hear any sound from SUB RX :-)
Who may help me?
Have you searched on-line for the manual? The radio is quite sophisticated, and requires some key pad strokes at power-on to enable and disable certain functions. A complete "reset" would reset the radio to "factory default," and may be the best route, since the radio was "pre-owned," and you don't know what the previous owner had set up.

I suppose, there are a lot of "power on" functions lay out of usual manual! May be try to find Service Manual? SUB is not very important for me, but if it worked at the begining - I want to have this function!
Maybe somebody know some TS-950SDX secrets?
There's a lot of information on the internet on the TS-950SDX just do a search then sort through all the ones you do or do not want. It seems like you will need the service manual. That's available on the internet as well and you can get it at; http://www.n6wk.com/kenwood/950SDX/T...ice_manual.pdf.
Something I am wondering. Does the frequency display for the sub-receiver display properly and change with the tuning and band selection?
Just follow the circuits to find the fault. It is best to start in the middle of the circuit to eliminate which part is the problem.
Hope this helps Andy
Yes, the frequency display for the sub-receiver display looks properly and change with the tuning and band selection. Looks like before!
OK Thank you for the link, I will try to check circuit step by step. At the same time sure that the function "SUB disable" exists - not sure but hope!
There is no "SUB receiver disable" option. Menu 06 allows you to configure the way you hear the sub-receiver audio, and there are 3 options that let you hear both the sub and main receiver on both the internal and external speaker or some combinations in between.
There are some simple questions nobody has asked:
- Are you using an external speaker or not?
- Have you tried with headphones?
- The sub receiver has its own signal strength meter -- does it show any signal reading?
- Are you sure you don't just have the sub-receiver AF gain control turned down all the way? (The radio has two AF gain controls, one for sub and one for main. I know it seems silly to ask this, but I have learned not to take anything for granted.)
If you have not tried headphones yet, please do so as an experiment. When you cycle through the different Menu 06 options, you should be able to select between hearing the sub and main in both ears together, the sub in one ear and main in the other, and sub/main with a 60/40 split.
The question about the sub receiver signal meter is important. Please answer it. When the sub receiver is turned on, the yellow ALC display becomes its signal meter. Turn the radio on and locate a strong signal on your favorite band with the main receiver, then turn on the sub receiver and set it to the same frequency as the main. Look at both signal meter displays. If the sub receiver is actually receiving something, you should see both signal strength indicators moving together. If the sub receiver signal meter moves, then the receiver section is working and the issue is something to do with audio, not RF. If the sub receiver signal meter shows no signal, then the sub receiver itself has a problem.
Dear Bill! I am really crazy man! All my previou radious had another functions of the same, as here SUB AF, knobe and I simply turned it to minimum! Crazy amateur! You may smile but first of all after your message I connected headphones to the rig and after turned SUB AF fully clockwise! I got immediately the strongest kick to my ears :-) but I was happy, SUB RX works perfect!!! Thank you!
