SOURCE: connect powered subwoofer

  • 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.

    Had the same problem with KLH E-10D Preamped Subwoofer. Afte brief research, I found the problem was with my Pioneer VSX-D509S reciever settings, not the subwoofer. If you have the same reciever, you can go to the pioneer website to download specific model owner's manuals.

    Select your Pioneer reciever model and it will give you an option to download the pdf manual. Hope this helps.

    SOURCE: No Soound on Subwoofer from Yamaha RX-V363

    I have the same setup. Are you going out of the subwoofer output of the reciever? (it's purple.) then into the LFE jack of the subwoofer (also purple.) That's the only connection you need besides power. If you have those right, try using your cable for something else to make sure the cable is good. Is the indicator of the subwoofer green? Mine comes on with the reciever. Good luck!

    SOURCE: how to connect a mordaunt short ms907 subwoofer?

    You feed it the Subwoofer Line Out (if you have one) or the High Level (Speaker) Outputs of an amp or receiver.

    All you will get for output from a laptop or other source would be 23-150hz.

    Here's the manual.

    If you feed it speaker-level inputs because you DON"T have a subwoofer Line Out you can drive satellites from your own amp or receiver THROUGH the subwoofer. It doesn't actually drive other speakers, if that's what you're looking for.

    The Line Output of the subwoofer would be to feed another amplified subwoofer.

    What wire do I plug in for the subwoofer cause I I have read cables but there's 2 and I only have 1 connection for the sub on the back of the stereo

    This subwoofer is probably powered directly from the amplifier and doesn't have an internal amp. The connections are probably the same type as for any other speakers. And, there are probably additional connections for the rest of the speakers. The connection on your amp is likely an RCA phono plug connector that sends low level signals to a powered subwoofer. To connect a passive subwoofer, one without a built-in amp, the main speaker outputs connect to the subwoofer and are then sent to the regular speakers connected to additional terminals on the subwoofer. You may need an owner's manual for the subwoofer to determine how it should be connected.

    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


    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..

    Have a nice day..

    Receiver cannot recognize subwoofer

    As I implied earlier, take a clue from the physical style of connectors for both parts of the subwoofer function in the old and new receivers:

    RCA connections are for Line Level signal between components only.

    The input (bare wire) at the speaker is for AMPLIFIED signal.

    You can't just modify one to fit the other and expect magic to happen. Be glad you didn't do it the other way around and modify an amplified (speaker level) outout into a Line Level input. You likely would have smoked that component.

    Your subwoofer is a passive speaker, that is, like any other speaker it needs an amplifier. Many subs are self-powered (amp built-in) and they would mate well with the RCA sub output of the receiver.

    Get yourself an Active (self-amplified) Subwoofer and run UN-MODIFIED RCA cables to it, according to its instructions, from the Sub Out of the receiver. Or get an amplifier between your receiver and the sub you have.

    As long as you change out the connectors, you can run it anywhere you wish. I suggest a rear channel.

    I need instructions connecting my car subwoofers

    Bridging your amplifier @ 4 ohm will yield the most power.... with the subwoofers you have.
    You must wire them in Parallel.
    Positive on both subwoofers to + on amplifier.
    Negative on both subwoofers to - on amplifier.
    The lowest impedence possible with 8 ohm woofers is 4 ohms.
