Most receivers only handle one sub at a time. If you are deadset on connecting two, you might want to consider how much power your receiver will give to each if you split the signal then determine the power of each sub. If the subs aren't the same you can be sure they will sound strange.

If they are identical and your receiver has enough power to handle them both, examine the connection the subs use to connect to the receiver and split the connection by buying a splitter at a local radioshack.

You will probably be better off using the better of the two subs instead of having both connected. Your sound quality will be more balanced and clear when it comes to bass.

How can I connect a subwoofer to this device (denon pma-520) http://www.hifiengine.com/manual_library/denon/pma-520.shtml?destination=node%2F14208


Look around for a subwoofer which has speaker level inputs.
Something like this;

Some weeks ago the sub stopped working. Thought dog had chewed the coaxial driver cable, but not shorted (now). Tried another sub w/o success.


Hi, I went to the Denon website and they have no documentation there for your receiver.
But do not frown, I have some good suggestions for you.
0 Don't beat the dog. After all, it's their job to chew things.
1 Get a new, un-chewed cable and see what happens between the sub output and the sub woofer. If it works, your in business. If it does not work. Don't be discouraged . Go to step #2
2 If the sub output on the Denon has failed, and everything else is good. There is another way to use your sub.
Install a patch system using the Headphone output from the front of the Denon. It may seem odd, but it works exceptionally well for the following reasons. It works on all signal sources. So if you are not playing a home theater source, you still have the use of your sub.
You will need the following adapters.
1 A Male stereo phone jack to female mini-phone jack. (Something that would accept typical small headphone sets such as those on an iphone).
2 A stereo "Y" connector that that has a single stereo male mini-phone jack that has two "RCA" female jacks.
3 A simple RCA male to male stereo cable pair as is commonly used to connect CD players, etc. i.e. separate red and white RCA connectors at both ends.
1 and 2 above may be available as a single unit combined with each other.
Take these adapters and connect the Item 1 into the Receiver, Item 2 plugged into Item 1, Item 3 plugged into Item 2 and finally the other end of Item 3 plugged into the two female RCA jacks mounted onto the back of the sub-woofer. If the sub only has one female RCA connector, get a RCA "Y" connector that has a single male end to 2 female ends.
This setup will work perfectly with any sub. The reason is as follows. Most decent subs have an adjustable high frequency cut off. So you can vary it from about 20Hz up to about 140 Hz.
I recommend that it is cut off at 80 hz. This way the bass transition is usually seamless between the woofer and the rest of the system. .
Then adjust the woofer volume control in a similar manner.
If it all works out, give the dog a treat and enjoy yourself.
I really hope this helps, I love my sub woofer as well.
Let me know how this turns out.
If you have any questions please post them on the site and I'll get back to you ASAP.
Best Regards,
Mark

No sub audio denon-1506 receiver


You have to let the Denon know it has a sub or it won't send anything to it.

I can't find the manual but I'm sure you could dig through yours and find the area concerning speaker set up.

Unable to get my sub to work with my Denon AVR 1506 Receiver


Did it ever work? Are you certain the sub is getting a signal. It has to be defined. How about the speaker levels adjustment? Did that work? Give us a clue.

AVR 810 Denon Receiver Sub Woofer Hookup?


Denon AVR-810 was a quite out-dated model. I had owned since 1992. It shown 'Protection' on the screen for 2 months ago and not yet been fixed. Better to replace a modern one or repair it at a reasonable costs.
