1. It's a passive sub. That means there is no amplifier built into the sub cabinet.2. Those are inductors. They passively filter the highs from the signal going to your sub.
3. It may work with the right adapters from Radio Shack. It would be a cheap experiment. Since the computer sub was 4 ohms and the Panasonic sub is 8 ohms, you are OK. You can always go up in impedance but be careful going lower. That's the quickest way to fry an amp.

Your Panasonic sub has 2 sets of speaker inputs and outputs. My guess is that the driver is a dual voice coil. If it says 8 ohms on the driver, then it is probably 8 ohms per coil. Wire the coils in parallel for a final load of 4 ohms and it will match your computer amp.

Finally, if that doesn't work then you can get an external amp to power the sub. Parts Express carries suitable amps from 25w to 3,000+w. Pick one that fits your budget.

SOURCE: cerwin vega ht-10d subwoofer won't work in yamaha reciever

Well, as I know, your Cerwin Vega subwoofer is designed for use with stereo systems. Therefore, it has only 2 channels for input, and 2 channels for output as well. However, you can try this out; the first thing I suggest is that you hook up your main front channels through the subwoofer. All you have to do is to connect the subwoofer input to the front channel output on the amp, then hook up your front speakers to the satellite output on the subwoofer. As long as you make sure that system is working on 8 ohms, I believe this can activate the subwoofer.

SOURCE: How to connect Jensen subwoofer CS10 to Yamaha Receiver HTR5660

Does the yamaha have a subwoofer line out RCA type jack? Most receivers with 5.1 output will. Just insert a male rca to male rca patch cable from the receiver to the line in on the subwoofer,( not the speaker wire inputs) Plate on the sub may say low level input, and setup the receiver menu option for SUB? yes/ no to yes, this will direct the low frequencies to the subwoofer.

I have a Yamaha HTR 3063 reciever and I just got a PSW 2000 Kef sub and I can't get the sub to WORK NO MATTER WHAT I DO PLEASE HELP


That is a potentially great combination. I have a Yamaha receiver but I am not familiar enough with Kef to know but is it possible your receiver expects to be connected to a powered sub. Are you sure the Kef works by itself? Have you checked to see whether the receiver subwoofer output works with another speaker? Could receiver mode selection be a factor? My Yamaha switches various functions on and off depending upon your preference.

For what it's worth, the troubleshooting section of my Yamaha manual says a subwoofer no sound problem can be caused by selecting MAIN LFE/BASS OUT on the SET MENU when Dolby or DTS material is being played or selecting SWFR when a 2-channel source is being played. Something has to work!

Hello ! I'm not sure how to connect my kef psw 2500 sub to my yamaha amp. I've got a subwoofer out on my amp but there's 4 inputs on the sub and I don't no which one to use ! Please help as getting...


Just for clarity, I need to explain what the four inputs are on the KEF subwoofer. There is a left and right RCA input which is the input signal to the subwoofer and there is a left and right RCA output which is the High Pass output from the subwoofer.

On the back of the Yamaha receiver, you said you have a subwoofer output. This output is most likely the mono subwoofer part of the home theater system and can be used if you like. The left right signal input into the KEF is summed into mono so if you only connect one channel you will basically reduce the signal level by 1/2 (-3dB) but it will work fine.

Alternatively, if your Yamaha receiver has monitor out and monitor in, you can run the monitor output signals to the subwoofer and you can then run the high pass outputs from the subwoofer back to the monitor in. This will give you the subwoofer and provide a smoother signal matching with your audio system.

It is not always easy to connect the subwoofer up to an integrated receiver/home cinema system using the high pass channels of the subwoofer as you don't always have access to the analog output and input of the front channels. In this case, just use the Subwoofer output or just the monitor out only.

I hope this solution is helpful.

I'm using an old Yamaha stereo receiver off my Panasonic Plasma to run a pair of E660's, can I just use the Speaker ''B'' on the receiver to run the center channel? (E660CEN)


I do not believe that you can. If you use the "b" channel for the center channel, the "a" channel will not process the left and right channels simultaneously. It is either or, not both at the same time. It may be possible to run your E660's directly off the TV output adjusting the volume from the TV, while running the center channel through the Yamaha receiver and adjusting the volume for the center channel from the receiver.I hope this helps.

HTR-5740 Subwoofer Hooking Up Issue


You can use a hi-level to low-level adapter. Just remember, the Yamaha does not send power (wattage) to the sub, just signal. You need to use a subwoofer that has an amplifier either externally or built in.

Need a hookup diagram for yamaha rx-v461 plus yamaha yst-sw216 please


Hi,
Here you can find the manual for your subwoofer. Looking at its back side, it has 2 RCA plug input for stereo. Receiver has just mono sub output, but as low frequencies are not easily locatable, mono is perfectly OK.
Just connect receiver SUB-OUTPUT with RCA cable to your subwoofer's RCA LEFT input. Then adjust volume to match rest of your speakers.

Connecting a Yamaha VX7 Subwoofer on my Yamaha HTR 5730 AV Receiver


Hello srqwrk,

You can connect the VX7 to the 5730 using an RCA Y cable like the one shown in the picture below. You get your one connection for the receiver and 2 for the VX7. These are available at any electronics store. Remember that the cable should be long enough to go from the receiver to where subwoofer will be placed.
Hope this helps. Let me know.
