Can I and how do I hook a subwoofer to my Sony str-de705 receiver

It depends. You can connect an active (self-powered) sub-woofer to the STR-DE705. You can't connect a passive sub-woofer that needs power from the receiver. If the sub-woofer has its own power cord, then it's an active unit. See for more information. You'll also need a RCA subwoofer cable. This is like a RCA audio cable but only has one plug on each end. (Using a regular audio cable may risk a short when the extra plugs hit something.) Many subwoofers will come with the audio cable. If you do need one, they are available at most places that sell cables, including .

Here is an example of an active subwoofer: . This is the Yamaha YST-SW012.

I hope this helps.

It would depend a lot on what type of subwoofer you have and it wouldn't be pretty.

According to the manual I found it doesn't have a Woofer Output so it isn't designed to route Low Frequencies anywhere.

Even if you rigged an Active Subwoofer to it using the Tape Output you wouldn't have central volume control for it unless the (unnamed) Sub was driven by speaker-level outputs from the Front A or B Speaker posts on the receiver.

Your question would be better framed and answered if we knew the details of the Sub and referred to ITS manual.

Connecting a Sony Subwoofer SA-W2500 to a STR DE 598

It is based on your sub-woofer type..whether powered or passive sub woofer..
Assume that you have powered one..RCA sub woofer jack is the best to feed it should use RCA sub woofer output on your receiver as well..good luck

I can't get bass thru the spkrs

So when you aren't using the sub woofer there's not enough bass, so you need more out of the other speakers. Chances are the front speakers are set to "small" in the receivers menu, change it to "large"if your front speakers have a 6 inch woofer or larger. Note: If you leave the sub on, the input signal to it will be greatly reduced when the speakers are set to "large". Hope this helps.

RCA Sub-Woofer

Did you try making sure the subwoofer is turned on under the set up menu on the Sony Receiver?

Press Set Up, Press the left or right button above the scroll wheel until you get to SW. It should say SW: ON or SW: OFF. If it says SW: OFF, use the Scroll wheel to scroll right until it says SW: ON. Also, make sure you aren't in 2CH mode, try A.F.D or surround sound.

you coudl use a single rca to a left and right rca cable. However most woofers will have a lfe single rca input on the woofer that you connect to a single rca on the receiver.

Are you sure you are not confusing the +/- on the woofer that is used to connect your speakers? ie. my woofer has the +/- so i can connect to my front speakers and my receiver to filter the low frequency sounds via the woofer.

hope this helps
