Question about Audio Players & Recorders
SOURCE: Subwoofer not working
you have to reset the receiver, i had the same problem, works now, it's great, should be in the instruction booklet. I think it was, hold the power button while you disconnect it from the wall, not too clear but check the booklet in resetting system

The easiest solution to use your subwoofer is to buy an amp for it. Any old stereo receiver from a garage sale will probably do just fine.
You can even now turn off your subwoofer / adjust the volume easily now!

The subs can be wired "parralel" or in a "series". it depends on the ohm rating of the speakers and the amp. Most amps can only go down to 2ohms (mono) so it depending on the ohm ratings of the speakers when wired in a series vs parralel that will decide how to wire them. you can always take the safe route and just wire the positives of each to positive on the amp and the negatives to the negatives on the speaker terminals. Do you have the speakers model numbers?

I'm not understanding what you mean by the "Sub doesn't even sound blown" if it doesn't play at all. One thing you can check is if you gently push in on the cone you shouldn't hear anything, if you hear a scratching noise and can feel resistance then you have a problem. If you have an OHM meter, you can check the voice coil impedance, it is a down and dirty way of checking to see if it is good or not. Measure all of the voice coils that you have and they should all read about the same, not necessarily exactly the same but pretty close. This test should tell you a lot. If it seems to test out fine there is something wrong else where. Let me know if you need more help.

just connect your subwoofer mono RCA to your amp sub single out rca connector. you do not need to megre all those 4terminals into one. in fact internal circuit of those 4rca are merging inside to one since the sub uses only a single amp. 4inputs was meant for sources with multiple sub out
