Question about Onkyo TX-SR804 7.1 Channels Receiver

1 Answer

Need help hooking up a KRK powered subwoofer to an Onkyo 7.1 receiver

I have this powered KRK subwoofer that has left and right RCA, TRS and XLR plugs as inputs, but my receiver only has one line level out for a subwoofer (guess it's typical for home theater receivers).

The KRK guide that comes with it, has wiring schematics to a headphone 1/4" jack? How can I use the subwoofer's line level output (purple RCA plug) as source for my subwoofer?

How would I correctly wire these components together? My receiver is an Onkyo TX-SR805.

How can I hook up BIC F12 subwoofer to Onkyo TX-DS838 receiver? Will the receiver power the subwoofer and other speakers?


Get a RCA cable and connect from your amp where it said Sub Woofer in the Pre Out box in the back of the amplifier top left hand side and take it to the "Sub In" located in the back of your Sub woofer bottom right hand (White round connector).
Good Luck!

Hooking up our onkyo ht-r340 the subwoofer has 2 line outs left and right back of amp has one subwoofer outlet. what to do


First would be to name the subwoofer so we can look at its "Line OUT's". The IN's would be more important as far as ITS function goes. I'm sure a manual exists for the unidentified subwoofer.

This receiver has direct subwoofer amplifer for a passive (unpowered) subwoofer as well as a Subwoofer Line Out for controlling an active (powered) subwoofer amp.

How do you connect a sub woofer to a Onkyo TX-8522?


Since it does not have a dedicated subwoofer pre-out, you would have to use the "TAPE" outputs. If your powered sub (I'm assuming your using a powered sub) has only one input, you could either just use the left tape out of the receiver, or use an rca splitter to convert the left and right to a single jack. (I'm not a fan of that method, though).

How to hook up my subwoofer


It sounds like you're doing everything right. Did you define the sub to the Onkyo (Subwoofer = Yes, page 22)?

Let's prove the sub works. Set its volume about half-way, cutoff= 170Hz. Temporarily connect an RCA cable from its Line Input to one of the Tape Out connectors on the Onkyo and play some FM through it. If it's alive you'll hear the low end of the music.

Don't buy into the hype that there are different pedigrees of RCA (or speaker) cables that will make an audible difference. Save your money.

Yes. In the back of the receiver, there should be an RCA line level subwoofer output. All home theatre receivers should have it. All you do is plug an RCA cable into the line subwoofer out, and plug it into the input on the subwoofer. Then, the front channels will be free for the front speakers.

Powered Or Unpowered Subwoofers For Onkyo TX-8511


Greg- Powered subs are better than non-powered subs (also known as passive subs), anyway I see the TX-8511 has no sub pre-out on the back panel, so you need to decide what sub you will use and run from the receivers left and right speakers output into a subwoofers speaker in from speakers then back out to speakers, look at the back of a subwoofer and you will see like 4 sets of speaker hookups 2 in and 2 out, what this does is takes the low end or bass and drops the signal to the subwoofer then takes the mids and highs out to your left and right speakers, unless your regular left and right stereo speakers have large woofers a sub is the way to go.

Onkyo 805 sub hook up problem


Talked to tech support at Onkyo and there seems to be two (2) places you can hook your sub up to. I placed mine in the wrong slot. So please double check where you placed the sub connection.

If you have a VCR it is easy. Just plug RCA cables into audio out right and audio out left (on VCR) and other ends into VCR audio in right and left at rear of your receiver. If there are two sets of video audio inputs, push button on front of receiver to agree with where you plugged cables in. (ie. Video 1 and video 2)
