SOURCE: Amatuer needs sub-woofer advice for Pioneer VSX-454...

Based upon your description, the subwoofer is just a speaker and is taken from the normal speaker outputs. Run your A channel to the sub and then from the sub to the left and right front speakers. That should do it.

SOURCE: Cant get bass, fuse is fine

You don't say if you've configured the Receiver to know you have a subwoofer (under Multicontrol - SUBW YES). Unless it knows about the Sub it won't send anything out that single "preout". You can get an RCA splitter to run that single output to both inputs in the Sub.

Just as an experiment, temporarily run one a pair of cables from the REC OUT to the Sub's inputs and tune an FM station to prove the Sub amplifier is alive. If it's still silent, it's dead. If there is sound (muffled) you need to go back to the Receiver to figure out why the Sub Preout is signal-starved.

SOURCE: bare wire sub to single RCA jack receiver

Yes you can modify RCA cables to make bare wire tails.
If the unit has a sub o/p then you just connect up your sub bass unit to whatever the amp needs.

An RCA cable is 2 wire which is all you would normally need for sub bass speaker level signal.
It may be a good idea to eventually upgrade the wire size if you want really good sub bass as lower frequencies draw more current and so require more copper.

Please let me know if this any help, thanks for using FixYa.

Ive got a kenwood kvt-512 n im tryin to hook an amp n subs up but dnt know where to plug my RCA jacks from the amp 2 the radio!


Your unit should have 2 plugs in the back...one for the audio and power wires to connect to your factory connections and the other plug is just RCA connections for your video, subs and front speakers. If you have a 4 channel amp and a amp for your subs, you will have to split the 4 channel amp down to 2 and run them to your front RCA connections. Subs will connect to the sub connections. If yours are not listed then you may have to track down a wiring diagram. Hope this helps.

How do I hook up a non powered sub woofer on my htr-5630?


You will need an amplifier or 2 channel receiver. Hook the sub out rca jack to the rca inputs on this new amp or receiver and hook the speaker terminals on sub to speaker terminals on same amp or receiver. Your Yamaha receiver doesn't have any power for a passive sub.Just pick up any old fairly high powered receiver for fifty dollars and you're good to go.I use old dolby pro logic receivers as they are a dime a dozen today. Good luck.

Which jacks to wire the subwoofer to?


Your receiver should have an RCA connector on the back panel that will be marked "sub woofer" or "LFE out". That connects to your sub woofer with a standard RCA type cable. Also, some powered subs have left and right speaker level inputs and outputs in which you would indeed run the sub woofer through the speaker outputs. The down side of that type of connection is that the line level converter inside the sub woofer will take a slight amount of your receiver's output power, although that is rarely detectable. Also, if you have a Dolby Digital receiver, using this connection method will take away systems ability to accurately control the low frequency effects of a soundtrack.

Good Luck,

I have a kdc-mp435u and when i connect the subs woofers to it,it dissent put out enough out put Signal to it and when im driving some times it give signal the woofers cussing them to hit heartier. I check...


did you plug your rca signal wires into the subwoofer ouput rca's? if so you can control the level and frequency of the sub on the face in the audio menu. if this is not the issue try new rca cables. you can run them outside the car first just to test. another issue is make sure you have proper grounding on the head unit and amp. also if your rca cables acccidently touch power they can blow a fuse or trace inside the radio causing the rca's to lose ground (you will have low audio with lots of humming noise). you can check this by jumpering a small wire from the radio frame to the outer shield of the rca jack while it is all plugged in. if the sound gets louder and cleaner you can secure this wire in place by soldering it or fixing the circuit board itself.

How to install kenwood kac-9102d in 2006 acura rsx


My recommendation is to get a line level converter. Go to a car audio shop or even best buy and specifically ask for a line level converter. It will have speaker wires in and RCAs out. Connect the speaker wires to the sub woofer speaker wires and then you will have the RCAs to run to your amp. I hope this helped.

Subwoofer to receiver hookup


In general, there are two ways to hook up your sub-woofer. First using the high level outputs from your receiver ( speaker output from the front R & L speaker terminals ) run a set of wires from the outputs to the speaker inputs on the sub-woofer, you do this in concert with the speaker wires going to the front R & L speakers which you then attach to the R & L speaker outputs on the sub woofer amp. Note that the sub woofer doesn't power your front speakers, the connections from the sub amp are just a pass through connection where the signal needed by the sub is parasitically taken from the inputs.
Second is via a low level output from your receiver / amp to the low level input on your sub amp. This is normally done via a RCA type of patch cable and connected to the sub woofer RCA jack on the rear of the source receiver or amp, Next run the patch cord to the sub amp an into the RCA jack input. IF you have a right and left input, use the Right input.
