Question about Audio & Video Receivers
I would like to connect a subwoofer to my Yamaha ZX-V490 however ther is no subwoofer connection in back od amp. Can I connect a sub woofer and if yes how do I do this
thanks a million
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.

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.
