Connect powered subwoofer

My stereo has 1 RCA audio out for the powered subwoofer. The subwoofer has a low level input RCA R (mono) and L. Do I connect the stereo's subwoofer RCA out to one of the Subwoofer RCA input jacks? Or do I hook up all the speaker wire of the Subwoofer for the High Level From Amplifier ''In'' AND High Level ''To Speaker'' Out? And if the answer is to the last 2 questions, where do I hook up those speakers wires on my stereo since I do not have ''Subwoofer'' speaker inputs OUT and IN on my stereo?

    Sounds like you just connect the RCA Sub out to the R (mono.) You may need to enable the sub out put on your amp, though.

  • If your receiver has a dedicated subwoofer line level output, we recommend connecting your subwoofer to this jack. Most receivers will have just one (mono) subwoofer output, while quite a few subs require two inputs. You can use an RCA "Y" adapter cord , which is a cable with one female RCA jack at one end, and two male RCA plugs at the other. Some receivers require menu settings (such as "sub-on" or "front speakers-small") that must be made before the sub output will be active.

    Can I use a JX-S900 Y/C separated I/O to run two subwoofers out of same reciever??


    Yes, on two conditions:

    1) the JX-S900 needs to be a proper matrix switcher. It has to have the ability to route 1 input to more than one output.

    2) the sub signals need to be low level RCA/phono, and not high level speaker wire connections. That's not just about the type of connector. It's about the signal going through those wires. A low level RCA/phono sub connection conducts a maximum 0.7 Volt. A speaker wire connection can transmit 30 Volts! If you put 30 Volts in to a line level switching device such as the JX0S900 you'll fry it.

    Provided that the above two criteriia are both met, then yes it will work.

    • Connect the AV receiver's sub out to Source 1 - white RCA phono.

    • Connect the two subs mono LFE Left input (white RCA) or the single black RCA/phono inputs to the JVC's outputs 1 and 2 - white RCA/phono.

    • Set the source routing: input 1 goes to output 1 and 2

    How do i connect subwoofer (canton movie 125 mx) to amplifier(onkyo txnr609)? there is one subwoofer output on the amplifier with either L & R(mono) high level input or L & R(mono) low level input...


    Connect front the sub out (single) on the amp to one of the rca inputs on the sub, This will work reasonably well but to make the most from the sub buy a 2 rca to 1 rca cable and use it to connect both rca inputs on the sub to the single output on the amp

    I am trying to hook up a powered sub woofer to a yamaha rx-v461 and i dont know what cables go where on the back of the sub there are two speaker ports and there are two plug ins but each speaker port has...


    Your subwoofer probably has both high-power inputs and "normal"low inputs. The first are for receivers, which don't have link-level output for sub, so they are able to take already amplified signal as input.
    You need to use link-level input of your sub and connect it to subwoofer-output of your receiver. The output is marked as OUTPUT - Subwoofer and is black-color RCA plug (don't confuse with subwoofer INPUT under MULTI CH INPUT).
    Receiver has only mono output for subwoofer. If your sub has stereo input (white/red RCA plugs), connect just the left channel to the receiver, it will still work.
    Don't connect anything to the speaker output on the sub, you don't need that.

    Need a hookup diagram for yamaha rx-v461 plus yamaha yst-sw216 please


    Hi,
    Here you can find the manual for your subwoofer. Looking at its back side, it has 2 RCA plug input for stereo. Receiver has just mono sub output, but as low frequencies are not easily locatable, mono is perfectly OK.
    Just connect receiver SUB-OUTPUT with RCA cable to your subwoofer's RCA LEFT input. Then adjust volume to match rest of your speakers.

    Have one wire for audio sub out, but two input ports to amp


    This one Wire should be for the +. Try connecting the + to the Head Unit and - to a Common Ground. At the Worst, You will Blow the Amp Fuse if not Correct. The Lead from the Head Unit is Only an Off and On from the Ignition. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

    My klh subwoofer has R&L connections to speaker and R&L connections to amplifier, but my new amp has a RCA cable connection plug-in. Any way I can use the old subwoofer with the new system?


    Yes, you use a subwoofer cable and hook it into the mono rca jack in the back of the sub. or you can use a Y splitter 1 female to 2 males. or if your amp has 2 sub outputs (L&R) then use both. I do believe it's said that if you use the high level input, it's better. I forgot why...

    Oh yeah. the difference between the 2 is a high level input allows the currant from the amp to pass through the sub, thus allowing the continuation of wattage to your other speakers.
    Low level input is only taking a audio signal from the amp. No power is being sen through the connection.

    How to connect surround sound system, at the moment its connected through cable, each time we use the dvd player we have take them out of the cable box then into the dvd player, we have a LG 42PC55 tv.


    In order of picture and sound quality -- from best to worst:

    1. The best way to connect, assuming your TV and A/V Receiver and/or Cable Box have the jacks, is to use a HDMI cable ( this cable is for both sound and video).

    2. Use Component Video out to input (3 RCA plugs, Red, Blue & Green) along with RCA Audio out to input (2 RCA plugs for stereo - 1 for mono).

    3. Use S-Video out to input (1 din plug) along with RCA Audio out to input (2 RCA plugs for stereo - 1 for mono).

    4. Use Video out to input (1 RCA plug, yellow) along with RCA Audio out to input (2 RCA plugs for stereo - 1 for mono).

    Be sure to select the correct inputs on your TV and Audio/Video receiver when you are watching TV. For example if you have connected your TV to HDMI 1 and DVD to HDMI 2, you will not see or hear anything if you don't select the correct input on your TV and A/V receiver for the input you want to see and hear.

    Detailed connection instructions will be found in your owners' manuals.

    Hope this helped you. :)

    Subwoofer connection


    if this is ao powered sub, that plugs into the wall, there should be no problems, if it is powered solely by the reciever it may work fine but be sure you dont exceed amperage on the subwoofer.
