How to hook up Panasonic SB PM19 speakers to SA-PM23 reciever


yes you can. these are called "bi wired" speakers which means there's a hook up for the woofer and the tweeter individually. If your amp have just 2 speaker hookups it's no problem to hook the woofer/tweeter wires of each speaker together. If your amp had 4 speaker hookups, you could put the tweeters in 1 and the woofers in the other but it will still work fine with 2 speaker hookups.

Hookup


It would help to know what equalizer you have, but I will assume it is a stereo analog unit. With the exception of the Tape In/Out connections on the back of the receiver there is really no provision for an equalizer. Even the Tape I/O connections are of little use if you can't monitor the source through the Tape In connections. Even if that were to work, it will not function for any digital sources you may have. You should be able to install this between an analog external source and the input to the receiver if you have one particular device you would like to tweak.
There are equalizer settings you can control within the receiver itself. You have the option of selecting the manual method for equalizer settings for each speaker or the default automatic method. Granted there are only 5 frequencies (3 for the sub) that you can adjust, but the fact that you can adjust each speaker separately is an advantage. The following was taken from the owner's manual:
• The front, center, surround, and surround back speakers
can be adjusted at 80 Hz, 250 Hz, 800 Hz,
2500 Hz, and 8000 Hz. The subwoofer can be adjusted
at 40 Hz, 80 Hz, and 160 Hz.
• While the Direct or Pure Audio listening mode is
selected, the equalizer settings have no effect.
• This procedure can also be performed on the AV
receiver by using its [SETUP], [ENTER], and arrow
buttons.

This is a very good receiver with some great features. If you have performed the Automatic Speaker Setup, you can go to the equalizer setting and select Off, Audyssey (automatic) or Manual.

Hope this helps.

My powered subwoofer no longer works through the receiver


if you have your front and centers set to 'small' you want your Bass out to be subwoofer only, and the rca jack labeled 'sub out' is the only place to connect your sub to if you want to control the frequencies with your reciever. I dont know the brand of your sub, or the inputs on the back of it to advise you where to connect, but it sounds like it worked for you at one time, but suddenly it does not

I hooked my surround sound & the woofer is not working to full potential. Why is that what did I do wrong?


Check for an adjustment on the back of the woofer, and also you might be able to adjust it with your receiver.

I have a sony str de 325 receiver....what sub woofer will go with it and where do you plug it into the receiver?? Thanks


You will need a powered sub, one that has a built in amp. It will also need speaker terminal type inputs. Use the B channel to send signal to the woofer. Since the audio from the B channel is full range, use the crossover on the sub to determine which frequencies you want to hear. I would start at 100Hz and go up and down from there. Use the gain to adjust the volume in relation to the other speakers. The sub volume will be affected by the master volume.

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.

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.

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.

Sub woofer


Is there a gain control on the sub? If not, are you using a receiver or pre/processor to control volume? There could be a level adjust or on/off control for the subwoofer output.
