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.

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.

Cant get my subwoofer to turn on that is connected to my yamaha receiver


MAke sure you have the lfe output enabled. Or you could try to use a headphone to rca adapter from a cd player/phone to test it directly.

The wires from Line level converter where to hook them up?


Firstly, and definitely, your "black" is subwoofer line out.

Check your AV receiver if the subwoofer option is activated. I've known some receivers that have the option to disable subwoofers and push all the bass into their front speakers.

Next, you have to check if your subwoofer is on or off? what about the volume of the sub?

If your subwoofer is passive, which means it does not require powering up using the mains, then you will have to get a seperate amplifier to power the sub up.

No sound from my Yamaha YST-SW315 subwoofer. When I run the test speakers don't have sound either. Not sure if its the subwoofer or the Yamaha RX-V450 receiver


Feed it with an RCA cable any other audio device you may have (CD, TV, MP3 player, PC) to prove it can or can not woof. It will respond to any audio, not just LFE or subwoofer audio.

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.

Which subwoofer????


Cameron,
I have the same problem, check these link and you will understanding more how it works. My understanding was bose cube cannot work with other receiver directly, it has to be work with bose's woofer (they call module) and they have specific wire to connect. So I give up to switch to bose even they match my deco and go back to traditional. Good luck.

Yamaha NX-SW300 sub woofer


Yes, that type of connector is often used for a VGA signal for a computer monitor. But in this case it is an all-in-one connector Yamaha used in order to simplify the hookup of this home theatre system. Unfortunately, the subwoofer is only usable with the DVR-S300 receiver/DVD player.
