Don, welcome. The first point is that you're plugged into the outputs specifically labeled "pre out" on the 709. It's extremely unlikely that all the pre-outs are defective, but you can plug one or more of them into your powered sub amplifier to check them for output.

If the pre-outs have output, call Axiom about the 1000.
