sub woofers are very powerful bass , with incredible sounding technology. your problem might be with the woofer wall around the circle. open the box and take the woofer out.Check if there is any tare over the corners of the cloth. sometimes there might be a crazy noise because of a little opening in the cloth caused by small tare.. if so better change it with a new 1 and make sure that the new cloth has guaranty

Wiring diagram for jp12 subwoofer


your sub woofer has only one input to make it work. plug in your rca cables into the back of the sub woofer and the other end into the audio out or subwoofer out put on the back of your surround system.
also has 2 speaker inputs so you can expand your speaker setup. plug thos in and you can hook up 2 speakers to th output on the back of the sub.

I recently purchased a new Denon AVR-391 receiver and am having a problem hooking up my subwoofer. It seems that the Denon has a pre-out RCA looking output and my subwoofer uses conventional speaker wire. ...


Hi,
Your sub-woofer apparently does not have an amplifier built into it. This type requires you to use your front left and front right speaker output to got through it to your regular speakers. It is called a passive sub-woofer for that reason.
To set it up, Connect your front speakers to the "output" of the sub. It should say "to speakers" on it.
Then connect the Speaker Outputs for the left front and right front on your Denon AVR-391 directly to the Sub. It should say on the back of the Sub "to amplifier".
Here is some theory you should know, if you don't already know it, that will help you get a satisfactory result in setting up this system.
There is a condition on setting up all speakers and subs that not everyone know. It's call "phase alignment". Phase alignment (A Good Thing) refers to all of the speakers in a system moving in the same direction (in and out) at the same instant in time. This gives you much clearer sound and better response from your sub-woofer.
Phase Cancellation (a bad thing) is when some of the speakers are moving out and other moving in during the very same instant in time. It causes problems in sound.
IN A SUB-WOOFER, IT CAN CANCEL OUT THE LOW NOTES.
Here is how to handle it:
On the back of the receiver the speaker terminal outputs are colored Red and Black. Black is considered negative and Red is considered positive. On the back of the Sub woofer and on the speakers the same colors apply. MAKE SURE THAT ALL OF THE CONNECTIONS GO BLACK TO BLACK AND RED TO RED WHEN CONNECTING UP THE SPEAKER WIRES.
The system will work either way. But you will have severe bass loss if the woofer wiring is out of phase because of phase cancellation.
Hope this helps,
Best Regards,
Mark

Recheck your wiring and instructions. If your woofer is self powered perhaps the amp is no good. Actually it better have amps since the laptop output will not power those speakers.

If i put the TS-swx310 sub in a bigger box would it get help the sound.......i have a 12'' regular sized box and the speaker is going in a car now???


It is amazing the difference box construction can have on the overall sound of a system. Size is only one factor. Using a larger sealed box may make the sub hit lower, but not necessarily louder. Because the TS-swx310 is a shallow mount woofer, it is designed to run in small enclosure. Putting it in a much larger box could potentially cause damage to the woofer over time. If you want more bass my advice is to use a normal woofer in a box built to spec for it. Generally a ported box will provide more output, and sealed hits tighter. It all depends on the type of music you listen to.
Hope this helps

Subwoofer with speaker wire?


Back in the old days, subwoofers were powered by the voltage from your receiver, through speaker wire.
Nowadays, subwoofers have their own power, hence not having speaker wire connections anymore.
It's unlikely that you'll be able to connect your old subwoofer to your new receiver.
You'd need to get a new one, which if you don't mind buying closeout, can be found on eBay pretty cheap.

SA-AX720 no subwoofer signal?


THIS UNIT HAS NO SUB WOOFER AMP IN IT. THE ONLY WAY TO OVER COME THIS IS TO HOOK THE LEFT AND RIGHT FRONT SPEAKERS STRAIGHT TO THE SUB WOOFER AND THEN GO FROM THE SUB WOOFER BACK TO THE INPUTS ON THE BACK OF THE UNIT FOR THE FRONT SPEAKERS. THE SUB WOOFER THIS WAY WILL EXTRACT THE BASS AND THE FRONT WILL RECEIVE THEIR PART. THIS SOUNDS CRAZY AS HELL I KNOW BUT THAT'S HOW I GOT MINE TO WORK. THE OUTPUT FOR THE SUBWOOFER IS USELESS AND PUT THERE FOR YOU TO HOOK UP AN AMP FOR A SUB WOOFER. EVERYTHING HAS SHORT COMINGS, AND THAT'S THE ONE FOR THE AX-720.

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.

its all about impedance matching...did you check to see that the new yamahas would drive from the system, before installing them? sounds like you will need to possibly add a matching transformer or other device on this one.
