How To Hook Klipsch Synergy Subwoofer To Sony STR-DE997?

I have a Sony STR-DE997, circa 2005, potentially a 7.1 system, although I only plan to set up as 5.1. The Sony has a single monaural RCA plug output for a subwoofer. Just got as a gift a new Klipsch Synergy 12 subwoofer (never had subwoofer before). However, the Klipsch has multiple inputs, both "low level" and "high level" (and "outputs"???), and there are two of each input, both Left and Right.

Do I use "low" or the "high" inputs on the Klipsch, and do I run the monaural outlet into just one input, either left or right, or split it into both left and right? Thanks for the help

SOURCE: no sound coming from subwoofer

Your receiver does not have a power amp to drive the speaker in the subwoofer while your other amp did. With this receiver you need to use a powered (active) subwoofer which has it's own power amp in it. You can either change out your subwoofer to a powered (active) subwoofer, or keep using your passive (unpowered) one and add a power amp between it and the receiver. The easiest way to tell a powered subwoofer is to see if has a place to plug it into the wall. If it does, it will most likely work in this situation.

SOURCE: Sony amp str-db940 - protection

Somewhere in your speaker wiring, you have a shorted wire. This short can be as simple as a single strand of wire touching the other terminal on one of the speakers.

With a bright flashlight, look carefully at the back of the receiver and then the speakers for any loose strands.

SOURCE: No sound from Sub Pre-out on Onkyo TX-SR606

Also, it could possibly the preout terminal itself that is not working. One way to prove that is by transferring the subwoofer cable from the preout and temporarily transfer it to the tape out section. If it ouputs sound from there, then that means the speaker and the cables are working fine and it's just the preout terminal itself that is not picking up anything. ^_^

I have a pioneer vsx d511 receiver. My question is how can i hook up pioneer gr777 equalizer? Pls help. Thanks


You're going to need an RCA audio switch if you plan on using more than one source (DVD/CD/MP3 etc..). They can be had for $20-30. If you use the switch, you'll plug all of your sources into that and switch them to the single output of the switch. From the switch (or single source if no switch is used) you'll plug RCA into the EQ. From here you plug the output of the EQ into any one of the 5 RCA inputs on the VSXD511. Voila! You have EQ!

I have a Sony STR-DE597 FM/AM Receiver .It has audio out plug and i have a Jensen js650 100 watt Subwoofer. how can i hook them up. Thanks.


The reason you may find it difficult to connect the Sony Receiver to the Jensen JS650 is that the JS650 does not have a line level input (RCA) to match the RCA subwoofer output of the STR-DE597 receiver. In this case, all you need to do is connect an extra set of speaker wires from the "Speaker B" Left and Right speaker connections on the back of the Sony to the speaker input connectors on the Jensen. On the front panel of the Sony, select speakers A+B settings so that the subwoofer is on in parallel with the front speakers.

I hope this answer is helpful to your home system set up.

The Jensen JS650 does not accept line level input so you need to use the Front B speaker output from your Sony receiver and not the RCA subwoofer output. Even though your subwoofer is active, it does not support line level (RCA) signals.

Just connect the subwoofer as you would a pair of speakers. Once connected, you make sure the front panel speaker switch on the Sony is set to A+B so you get sound from your existing speakers (A) and subwoofer (B).

I hope that works for you.

I have a Pioneer VSX 823 - K, and when I hook up my Klipsch HG-12 300 watt subwoofer to it, the receiver is prone to overheating or just shutting off with too much bass. Is there a fix to this?


This is receiver thermal going in protect issue and has no bearing to your sub, The sub has its own power amp and not supplied by the receiver. Thermal module may be bad. See a tech.

Subwoofer onkyo


A lot of these systems have options for switching off speakers and subs. You should look up the speaker settings options of the Sony. If you have the manual see what it says about connecting an active sub.

Klipsch Synergy Sub12 Subwoofer Speaker


If it's a new model you should send it back.
If it's not then it sounds like the thing that does all the work has gone. It will be found on a heat sink. Try replacing that.
