Genelec 1091A home theater, new member

Hello, I'm new on this forum so please excuse me if I post this at the wrong place.

I own a Bang and Olufsen surround sound setup and a beovision tv. The tv has a surround sound processor build in so all the (active) loudspeakers are connected to the beovision. Last week I was given a Genelec 1091A subwoofer. A custom made cable came with it (Powerlink to XLR) to connect the subwoofer to the subwoofer output, unfortunately only very little sound (low volume) is produced. Am I doing something wrong or is it impossible to use a the sub in combination with Bang and Olufsen?

Thank you for your help.

It is not recommended to use the subwoofer in that system. The end-result will be unknown. Our subwoofers are meant to be used with suitable Genelec speakers only, please see more information here:

It seems that the signal level is too low for the subwoofer and therefore you will get only little sound. Can you adjust the subwoofer output level at all from the B&O processor?
