How to install/wire an RCA jack in Sony SA-WSIS10 Powered Subwoofer?

I have a Sony Theater system, with only the subwoofer and speakers functional. I purchased an Onkyo TX-SR313 AV receiver. It has a single RCA Subwoofer output, but the Sony system has no RCA input. It uses a proprietary connector. I need to know how (what specific wires) I could connect to an RCA jack so as to use it with my AV receiver. Please assist!!!!

    I may not have been clear. It is a powered amplifier (I believe) .... The configuration sends the signal to the subwoofer and the subwoofer distributes the signal to the 5 speakers. Hoew

    However the cable to subwoofer is a proprietary / multifunction cable. I want to open the subwoofer and find the two wires that transmit the signal to the powered subwoofer ... Upon identifying the wires I will connect them to a RCA female jack ... So that my new AV receiver can use its RCA connector to send the signal to the Sony subwoofer.

    How do I find the wires and how to specify which is positive and which is negative? Please help!

SOURCE: Trying to use a passive subwoofer with STR-DE445

The output of the Sony is "signal only" not power. Being "passive" like your sub. What you need is a sub amp, and they are not cheap, 400-600 on average "min". Unless you have a Velodyne 15 or 18, just get an amplified sub, they start around 150 new. Hope this helps

It is based on your sub-woofer type..whether powered or passive sub woofer..
Assume that you have powered one..RCA sub woofer jack is the best to feed it ..you should use RCA sub woofer output on your receiver as well..good luck

Can i put an extra sub woofer on my lg da3525 via the woofer out socket and what plug do i require to do this


Hi,

How to Connect 2 Subwoofers to One Receiver

Subwoofers produce the deep bass sounds that give home theater the realism of being at the movies. A good subwoofer can rattle the walls during action sequences, while adding depth to recorded music and a heightened sense of feeling in the midst of a televised sporting event. Because most home theater receivers are equipped with a single subwoofer jack, connecting a second subwoofer requires a simple audio adapter available at electronics stores. Self-powered subwoofers have their own built-in amplifiers to drive the bass speakers, so they cannot drain power on the main receiver in a system and thus pose no danger to the equipment, even when an extra subwoofer is connected.

Things You'll Need:

Home theater receiver
Y-adapter with RCA jacks on two ends and an RCA plug on the other, available at electronics stores.
2 RCA subwoofer cables
2 subwoofers


Instructions


Plug the Y-adapter into the home theater receiver's "Subwoofer OUT" jack.


Connect an RCA subwoofer cable to each jack on the Y adapter and route the cables to the subwoofers in the room. Because subwoofers deliver an omnidirectional sound, the boxes can be placed anywhere they won't get in the way, but within reach of an electrical outlet..


Plug an RCA cable into the "Sub IN" jack on the back of each subwoofer.


Connect the subwoofers to wall outlets and turn on each unit by pressing the power button, typically located on the back panel.


Adjust the volume and crossover settings on each subwoofer as desired. The crossover adjustment knob tells the subwppfer which low-end frequencies to reproduce from the audio signal, such as a movie on DVD. All frequencies higher than the crossover setting will be transferred to the other speakers connected to the receiver.



Tips & Warnings

Use subwoofers that are closely matched in power, as rated in watts, when using two subwoofers in a home theater setup.

Disconnect the subwoofers from the power supply while making the audio connections.


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.

Can i hook up my SA-WM20 subwoofer to my sony DAV-S500 home theater


As long as your sony reciever has a sub out connection you should be able too. This powered sub you have has a rca sub input which should coincide with the receivers rca sub out.

Subwoofer with speaker wire?


Back in the old days, subwoofers were powered by the voltage from your receiver, through speaker wire.
Nowadays, subwoofers have their own power, hence not having speaker wire connections anymore.
It's unlikely that you'll be able to connect your old subwoofer to your new receiver.
You'd need to get a new one, which if you don't mind buying closeout, can be found on eBay pretty cheap.

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.
