SOURCE: i have atomic A-8 subwoofer

The symptom sounds like an open signal shield somewhere and the cable is acting like an antenna for airborne electrical noise.

Disconnect the RCA cable at the sub. Is it still humming? NO? Problem is external to it. YES? Internal. Broken ground somewhere.

Recheck all connections making sure to twist the RCA head as you install it so oxides will be worn off.

Consider what may have changed in the environment regarding electrical devices, motors, magnetic sources. Ensure signal and speaker wires as ar not running are as non-parallel to any power cords as practicable.

I would like to connect my Philips subwoofer to my Pioneer multi channel receiver, but the subwoofer's input has only a 15 pin serial port connection. I need an inexpensive and easy solution?


Unfortunately, most subwoofers , like the one you're describing, need a separate amplifier. I don't know the model number of what you're working with but most Phlips subwoofers with that connection need an amp. Now, if you have the rest of the system that was originally with the sub then you can scavenge it's amp. But that's tricky if you don't know what you're looking at. Craigslist has tons of "powered" subwoofers that don't require a separate amp and u can therefore use your Sub Preout from the HT receiver.

How do i connect a subwoofer to my stero technics su-800mk2 amplifier


You would connect any non-specific subwoofer according to its needs:

passive = to an amplifier channel;

active (self-powered) = per its manual and the capabilities of the source.

Given the lack of a specific subwoofer facility on the SU-800, you need a sub that can be driven by full-range speaker level output. Its manual would describe the procedure. Keeping in mind that most active subs are pretty much the same speaker-level-connection-wise (if they allow it), you could find just about any manual and wit would get you running.

Unable to receive optimum output. The bass is totally flat !


Hi, ok the Bose Acoustimass III system consists of two small cube speakers and one subwoofer unit called the Acoustimass bass module. If the subwoofer stops working, three points can be the cause of the failure. The Bose Acoustimass III is a passive system, meaning the speakers do not power themselves, but instead are connected to a receiver or amplifier. Thus, the amplifier, the speaker between the amplifier and the subwoofer, or the subwoofer itself could be the issue.

Things You'll Need:

* Amplifier
* Speaker cable
* Extra subwoofer


Instructions


Disconnect the speaker cable from the back of the Bose Accoustimass bass module and connect it to a subwoofer that is known to be working. If the subwoofer works, the bass module needs to be replaced.


Disconnect the speaker cable from the back of the receiver or amplifier you are using and from the back of the subwoofer in Step 1.


Connect a speaker cable that is known to be working between the back of the receiver or amplifier and the back of the Accoustimass module. If the module starts working, then the cable was the issue.


Disconnect the speaker cable from Step 3 from the back of the amplifier or receiver, then connect the cable to the subwoofer port on the back of an amplifier or receiver that is known to be working. If the subwoofer works, the receiver was the issue. If the subwoofer still does not work, verify that the speaker cable is in the subwoofer port of the receiver/amplifier and that the cable is connected securely to the subwoofer.



If you think you did the connection properly,Fine... If not you can use the manual from the below link and know how to connect it properly..

Subwoofer: Active or non active?


Hello Smegboy,

Yes, you are right. This receiver is rated at 100WRMS output in all 5 channels (2-front, 1-center and 2-surround) while in Dolby Pro Logic operation. The subwoofer output is line level only (not amplified), which means you need a powered subwoofer to be connected to this output. A non-powered subwoofer could be used but, you need an additional amplifier connected to the subwwofer output from the receiver to drive it.
Let me know if this helps.

How do i connect non passive woofer


This receiver can only take a self powered subwoofer I'm afraid. You could get a power amp and power the sub like that but in the long run I really think you would be happyer to get a new subwoofer. Good Luck
