i didnt realize until today that the deh-p5900ib wouldnt let me use my rear fill when connecting a subwoofer setup. so all i got is front stage and sub banging at the moment. is their a possible way to get all 4 speakers going AND the sub at the same time? let me know if its possible cause i actually liked my rear fill with my previous deck (pioneer premier p8mp).

from what i can see, it has front, rear, and nonfading preouts so you should be able to do just that. how did you try to hook it up?

Make sure the rear output is not set to sub woofer. Are you able to use the fader? If not then the rears are set as a sub.

i have the sub RCA's in the non fade preamp outputs. on the deck, i can have it set on "S/W" or "full range". right now, its on full range and if i were to fade it to the rear, the sub will only be playing. if on S/W, it doesnt let me fade front/rear...just left/right.

i had a shop check it and turns out the internal amp is fried (by me). user error and not the deck. dont want any confusions that pioneer makes bad products. :blackeye:
