Can't get my Accurian subwoofer to work

Just bought an Accurian 125-Watt Powered Sub from Radio Shack and I can't get it work. My receiver only has one Subwoofer Out jack. No Sub speaker terminals on the receiver. I only have a stereo RCA line and I hooked up the red line to both the Sub and the receiver.

OK if you came out of the receiver sub pre-out RCA jack into the subwoofer RCA jack ( most subs call this low level line in) and no sub sound you may need to program the receiver to tell it that a subwoofer is being used, many receivers have this function, and some default it to NO SUB and them your low end soung goes to the front right and left speaker, so check the receiver manual and look under adding a subwoofer instructions if available.

Sounds like you have everything hooked up properly. Make sure the outlet is providing AC power to the sub. Check the power switch on the sub.

If it is not working still; bring it back and swap it for another one before you warranty runs out.

How to install KLH asw10-20 to a 7.2 receiver


Yes, the 10-120 can use a L & R low level subwoofer input. You can get a short 6" RCA splitter adapter from Radio Shack for a under $10. (1 female input, 2 male outputs) Alternately, just plug the subwoofer output on your receiver to just the low level R channel on the KLH sub.

I brourt a jamo sub 200 and five a102speakers but


The Jamo speakers need an AV Receiver to drive them properly. The TV doesn't have the correct outputs nor does it have the power required.

The Jamo kit consists of a powered subwoofer ans 5 small surround speakers. Each surround speaker needs to be powered by the speaker output from an an AV Receiver. The subwoofer should also be connected to the receiver, but the connection is a phono/RCA lead from the receiver's "Sub Out" socket.

Your TV connects to the AV receiver via the Optical out.

Which color connection at sub woofer (white or red. RCA ) should connect to the receiver ?


Either one will work. You should get a rca "y" adaptor, at radio shack or another electronics retailer.

I hear a humming noise from my Sunfire subwoofer - occassionally. I bought a kit from Radio Shack that supposed to cut down on noise from the electric outlet - it didn't work. Please help!


How to isolate annoying background hum.

As long as the music or movie is playing, you can forget about it, at least until a quiet passage occurs, then there it is again: HUMMMMMMM! Be gone, bad hum, you think. But, like a bad odor at the back of the fridge, it takes some dogged persistence to track it down and eliminate it.

Hum is a constant low-frequency buzz, usually at about 60 Hz or 120 Hz, which results from voltage differences between true "ground" (what you'd get shoving a copper pipe into the ground) and the electrical "ground" of your receiver's chassis, the incoming cable-TV feed, or any video or audio components interconnected within your system, including powered subwoofers. When this voltage differential exists, it's called a "ground loop," and the hum it produces is darned annoying. You'll hear the hum mainly from the subwoofer because it's a low-frequency noise, but there will also be hum from your floorstanding front speakers or even compact bookshelf models.

First, try disconnecting your subwoofer from the coaxial sub cable from your AV receiver but leave the subwoofer turned on. Does the hum go away? If it does, then the ground loop is entering the system from your AV receiver and/or your cable-TV system set-top box (or satellite dish and decoder).

Disconnect the incoming TV-cable or satellite feed to a set-top box or to your TV and the A/V receiver. If the hum disappears (and you don't use a satellite dish) complain to the cable-TV company. They may know what you need and supply you with a ground-isolating transformer. If they don't know what you are talking about you'll need to order a video ground isolator and install it in-line with the TV cable before it enters your set-top cable-TV box. Axiom has special wide-band isolation transformers that will not interfere with any digital TV or HDTV signal. (N.B. You CANNOT use one of these with a satellite decoder box.)

Before you order one, you can try plugging your subwoofer into a different AC outlet in the room, ideally one that is not on the same circuit as your AV receiver and video equipment (TV, DVD player, sat or cable TV box, etc.) That may solve the problem. If it doesn't, see if the back panel of your sub has a "ground-lift screw". It will be labeled as such. Just remove it. That may remove the hum. If it doesn't and you have a standard cable-TV feed (not a dish), then order the ground-isolation transformer. (Axiom has special wide-band isolation transformers that will not interfere with any digital TV or HDTV signal.)
Axiom Audio Ground Isolator

If that still doesn't eliminate the hum, or if you use a satellite dish video feed, then you could try one of these from Radio Shack, which goes between the subwoofer and the coaxial cable from the receiver's subwoofer output.

With persistence, all ground-loop problems can be solved.

Hope it helped..

Have a nice day...

My receiver has a RCA subwoofer jack, but my B&W ASW1000 has the red and white cables. How do I connect the 2?


Go to Radio Shack and get an RCA cable splitter with a female and and two male ends. Share the amp's sub out with both inputs on the sub.

I am terrible as music equipment. so here is my dummy question. I hope you can help me out. I bought a used Peveay PR Subwoofer similar to this one: http://www.guitarcenter.com/LMS/Viewer.aspx?vid=48691...


hello, first off you bought a sub designed for musicians not for use at home. tons of issues pop up how many ohms is the driver does it have a crossover what frequency is is tuned for etc...? too many issues .

if you are determined to make it work

first thing you will need a MONO amplifier or a stereo amp that can be BRIDGED to mono

then you will probably have to replace the phone jacks with speaker terminals they are available at radio shack or most car stereo installation shops.

Personally I would not mess with it chalk it up to a "life lesson" and purchase a sub with an onboard amplifier that is designed to connect to a home receiver.
