I'm assuming that you are using a standard amplifier with L and R speaker outputs if a stereo Amp.... or L and R and SUB standard RCA output jacks. If it is a more complicated setup, having surround sound speaker jacks, then look for a SUB OUT jack or plug.
Some Subwoofers are self-powered, having their own, built in amplifier especially designed for that model. Sometimes they require a SUB connection and a power supply to the 110V AC house power too. These sometimes need a connection to a standard 3.5 mm HEADPHONE jack output plug. If it's this type, then the front of your amplifier could have one. Either way, the musical signal from amplifier to the subwoofer must be available on your Amp AND be received by the type of subwoofer you are using.
As long as you are using only one rca signal input, and physically splitting it with a splitter or even just leaving only one channel connected, and the other empty, wire each coil to each of the amp channels. There won't be stereo separation (of your woofer). It should be ok. Better than 2ohm bridged load, or 8 ohm. You will lose output at 8 ohms, but your amp will never overheat and your soeakers will last forever. Lol.
If your stereo has preamp outputs, I would recommend connecting those to the input RCA connections on the amplifier. The connection from the amplifier to the subs is dependent on the capability of the amp and the impedance/power level of the sub.
very good ! there is nothig wrong with your system, buy a stereo to mono RCA jack (Rs10/-) and connect the subwoofer (if single coiled) L+ & R-- of your existing amplifier. NB: Please go through the manual of amplifier .
nice radio bud. also want to say that the kicker amp will take the input from the stereos rca subwoffer out port on the back of the stereo, i have read about your radio before answering your questions to ensure acuracy.
Taken Directly from your manual
Press and hold the SEL button until LCD display “DSP OFF”. Press SEL button again and LCD display “WOOFER OFF’. Rotate volume to activate the subwoofer control function, then leave the unit idle for your desired setting to take effect. Make sure the unit is connected to an external amplifier.
RCA Line Out
The RCA Output Jack is on the back of the unit on the right side. (See figure 1) This output is for connecting an amplifier, equal- izer, or other audio component that requires a pre-amp out connection. (Red = Right, White = Left) Follow the manufacturers in- structions for the audio component that you are connecting
The Subwoofer Output Jack is on the back of the unit on the right side.
on page 8 of 22 on this ebook illustarted the proper wireing configurations for an aopmilifier. note: the remote wire must be conencted to the radio to the amp remote to allow radio to trun amp off and on good luck.
You have it upon one of several truly odd "standards" in the AV industry but the answer is simple if not quite logical. You will use an RCA type cable from the Sub out or LFE on the receiver to just one of the two inputs on the subwoofer. I usually use the one on the right but it really doesn't matter. The other connectors would be for a system with out a sub out where the speaker wire would be run first to the subwoofer and then out to the speakers. This will not be used at all in your case.
Philips DVP 3256 has 6 outputs which takes in RCA connectors Altec lansing VS3251 has 3 STEREO outputs. Buy 3 nos of STEREO (female) to RCA (male) cables 1. Connect the Altec's green wire to first stereo-to-RCA cable. RCA ends to DVP 3256's Front left and Front right 2. Connect the Altec's black wire to second stereo-to-RCA cable. RCA ends to DVP 3256's Rear left and Rear right
3. Connect the Altec's orange wire to third stereo-to-RCA cable. RCA ends to DVP 3256's Centre/Sub woofer. Interchange RCA ends if the Subwoofer sounds dull.
If your receiver has a dedicated subwoofer line level output, we recommend connecting your subwoofer to this jack. Most receivers will have just one (mono) subwoofer output, while quite a few subs require two inputs. You can use an RCA "Y" adapter cord , which is a cable with one female RCA jack at one end, and two male RCA plugs at the other. Some receivers require menu settings (such as "sub-on" or "front speakers-small") that must be made before the sub output will be active.
