Connecting a PASSIVE subwoofer to the denon AVR-1507

Hi I just bought the new receiver, the problem is that this receiver does only have an ACTIVE subwoofer output. I've don't want to use the solution of connecting the sub through the A connector (on the way to the main speekers). can I configure the bass to the B connectors & connect the sub to it (while the main speekers still connected to the A connector) ? if so, how do I configure the reciever ? thanks sagy

Connecting a passive subwoofer to a denon 2113

you need another reciever/amp to power that sub, because that denon reciever is designed for a powered sub,. if you have another old reciever/amp laying around, you can connect the sub out from the denon into an auxillary input of any old reciever/amp, (switched to that input) with speaker wires from old reciever/amp to the passive sub

My subwoofer is connected correctly (test mode it works fine). The Denon 589 receiver, however, when everything is set up and ready to go, doesnt seem to send any output to it, so there is no base sound. ...

What's the make and model of the subwoofer? It sounds like it's a passive (unpowered) speaker.

See page 9

I seriously doubt your test mode worked fine on the subwoofer level adjustmnent.

Get a powered (active) sub.

Is there any way you can connect two subwwofers to this receiver?

Certainly... the easiest way is to purchase an RCA Y adapter to split the pre-out subwoofer connection to both subs.

Here's a link to what you need: (Best Buy)

This will not, however, give you a discrete left and right sub. You'll need a receiver with 7.2 capability to do that.

Make sure the phase is set the same on both subwoofers, or they'll cancel each other out and you'll end up with less bass than you had before with one sub.

If this answers your question, would you rate it for me?

Is denon 1356 with active bass. and i want to know the difference between active bass and passive bass.


A passive bass is a box with a sub-woofer in it.
An active bass is a box like that with an amplifier built in.

Hope that helps.
