Question about KEF Audio PSW 2150 Speaker

1 Answer

Hooking the sub to receiver and how to set crossover freq. etc.

I don't have a manual for my PSW 2150 so I need to know where to plug in the single cable from my receiver (as you know there are four places where it can be plugged in). I also am not very tech savy so I would like to know the criteria for setting things like crossover freq., phase adjustment, what is the difference in performance for music vs cinema setting, and what slope means and what slope setting may be optimum. I would like to know how to obtain a manual for this sub,

Problems with JBL PSW D110


The speaker level input option is designed for receivers that don't have digital output for the sub, used this way when you set to digital the speaker outputs only get the higher range outputs so won't reproduce much bass. To get the sub to work in digital mode you need to use the digital output (single RCA) from the amp to the sub

Cerwin Vega SUB8...how do I connect


grady66,
We will start with the easy one, Phase. The phase selector is a setting that can be adjusted by sound; which one sounds better? Either one will work fine. It's mainly for situations where the sub enclosure is located at a distance or behind the listening area. The 'in and out' crossover selector and the input from the receiver goes together. The 'in and out' crossover selector is asking if you want to use the internal crossover to block the bass from getting to the satellite speakers. Most home surround sound receivers only have the one sub out and most subs have both left and right inputs. When there is a single signal being fed to the sub you use the subs left input or buy a splitter and send the signal into both left and right, but either way will work equally the same.

There is two ways to connect the speakers to the receiver.

1) Cross-over 'In': you connect the output speaker wires from the receiver to the speaker inputs on the sub and the speaker outputs on the sub to the satellite speakers; the sub will get its sound from the input speaker wires.

2) Cross-over 'Out': you connect the sub to the receiver using the receiver's single sub out, then connect the satellite speakers directly to the receiver's speakers outputs; in this configuration the satellite speakers are given a full range of signal including the bass.

I have used #2 with the same system and had great results.

I dont know how to connect a JBL PSW-D115 into my receiver


Connect the receiver's Subwoofer Line Out to the Sub's Line In with a single RCA cable.

Not knowing your specific receiver I can only advise that you get into its setup and 1) tell it you have a subwoofer; 2) set the other speaker types you have regarding Large vs Small (meaning can they handle REAL bass); 3) go through all the channel level setup; 4) Rock On.

No Signal on sub preout on my Onkyo TX-SR703 AVR


Well the next step would be to make sure that all the settings are set to subwoofer yes, and set your crossover as well.  The amp usually has a crossover which tells the microprocessor which frequencys to send to the sub.

Marantz sr6200 problem


I think it may be related to set up of crossover frequencies within 'menu'. There's a menu where speaker sizes are set, as far as I remember the lowest setting suggested crossower freq for sub somewhere at 80hz as default which may be too high of you have sub.
