Re: Sub Woofer

Yes, this output on this receiver is at line level, (.775 MV) Or better known as 0 db level. You will need a powered subwoofer to get the bass to work. If you need an owners manual, you can get one here: Good Luck

Yamaha rx-v2500 receiver how to hook up speakers


Follow these steps to connect a powered sub woofer to your receiver: You typically have two options when connecting a powered sub woofer. Input (1) on the rear of the sub woofer would be used when connecting the sub woofer to the receiver using speaker wires. You would then connect the main speakers to the opposite end, or output or the sub woofer to the main speakers. Option (2) would be using RCA line level output jacks, input (2) on the rear panel of the sub woofer directly to the single sub woofer output on the back of an AV receiver. blank.gif

Sub woofer not working, no manual cant find one on internet either

I assume that the sub-woofer is "POWERED TYPE" ..otherwise if it is a PASSIVE type you can not use it as sub but regular speaker.....
So,if it has a power plug for 110 VAC it is "powered type" ..Than you need to find out the AUDIO output 2xRCA plugs on the back and connect it to the 1x RCA input of need a "Y type RCA cable " to make 2x stereo output into the 1x MONO input RCA jacks for need volume adjustment once on the sub controls (if it is a Powered )

Take care and if it succeeds please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up
for Helping out the Community :)..if you need more help please contact me ..

Hope this helps!

Power sub woofer is not working on my pioneer vsx-81txv everything is working all the speakers except the power sub connection at the back all i can hear is the hissing sound when i try to connect the sub...

Hissing? How loud? A sub isn't even capable of making high frequency sounds at normal volumes.

The Pioneer manual would tell you how to enable and test the subwoofer output.
Page 17 and the MACCV procedures on Page 33 (auto) or 43 (manual)

Do you mean sub woofer. Then you can select any brands Active sub woofer ( active means built in amplifier) to connect with your system. They comes in different power (watts). you can use an active sub woofer with 100W output.
connect the sub woofer pre out of you amp to the pre input of sub woofer.

I'm not sure how to hook up a powered sub woofer to my rx4109 reciever

It doesn't have a specific low-frequency or subwoofer output.

Depending on your unnamed subwoofer we may be able to work something out. Any sub should be able to work with a full-range Line Level feed.

If you use a Line Level input you won't have volume control of the sub through the receiver.

That would be available at either Tape Out or Aux Out. Just run an RCA pair (or combined to one male out if that's what the sub amp requires).

Whichever one you use, you won't be able to activate that function for listening as it would remove the input to the sub amp.

If your sub accepts speaker level High Level inputs you could drive it with speaker outputs and yoi WOULD have some volume control, assuming the sub had a way to match its initial volume to your other speakers.

Of course, the manual for your sub might explain some of this, too.

Old receiver, new subwoofer- how to connect?

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Never connect speaker outputs to anything that looks different, like RCA connections. Can you say crispy critter?

Your receiver sounds like it won't send specific Subwoofer of Low Frequency Effects information to the Sub so we're cheating by adding a sub. If you named the model of each we may have a better shot at naming the output you need to use.

I'm curious. How did you have the old passive sub working?

Basically what you may have to do is feed (probable) full range audio to the Sub using an RCA splitter to combine the L and R outputs found, oh, at any Tape Output that you're not using. The Sub will only reproduce what it can. The presence of higher frequencies won't bother it. If it has its own volume control you'll be able to balance its volume with the rest of your speakers.

How to install klipsch sub woofer to yamaha reciever rx-v559. everything working properly but sub wont be adjusted with volume. i got my stuff moved out here but had a mate help me set up. didnt pull it...

Does the sub work at all? How is it hooked up? The sub needs to be fed by an RCA cable from the Subwoofer Output jack for the receiver to control its output.
