Get a powered sub-woofer that has speaker level inputs, then run your front speaker wires into the sub-woofers speaker level input and then run a set of speaker wires from the sub-woofers speaker wire output to your front speakers. This is a common way to use a sub-woofer with a receiver that doesn't have a sub-woofer output.

Most powered sub-woofers have these connections, just check it out first before you buy one. They look like speaker jacks on the back of the receiver.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Can I use an Ipod Dock with a Yamaha RX V490 receiver?


No, but you could still access the audio directly from the iPod...

Anything that has a headphone output can be adapted to feed an RCA cable pair for standard stereo to an amp or receiver. Get a cable like the one described here:

and connect it into any available analog input EXCEPT "Phono". Turn the MP3 player volume up.

Speakers connection


There shouldnt be a problem with that at all. The subwoofer needs to be self powered. The Yamaha has a "Subwoofer Output" on the back. Just connect it there.

Yamaha RX V490 Turning itself Off


The amp is in protect mode which means that the output section has a problem. With nothing connected, there are defective parts inside the unit. This type of problem is not likely to have been caused by any shipping damage. I would guess that the output transistors are shorted.
