How to hook up the subwoffer


There are several methods, depending on the the types of 1)inputs on the subwoofer and 2) outputs on the amplifier (aka receiver). You can only use the type that is on BOTH.

Most sub woofers have "line level" inputs (they are the RCA phono style jacks or other style jack) that are marked "In" or "Input" and may have speaker level input & output terminal that accept speaker wires.

Amplifiers or "amp" all have speaker level outputs and many also have jacks that are labeled "Subwoofer" or "LFE" (low frequency effects) Output. If both your sub and amp have the "line level" jacks, then all you need to do is get a cable that is long enough to connect the two together, and then enable the low frequencies to be sent to the sub instead of the normal speakers in the receiver's set up menu. Done!

If you have only a speaker level connections common to both the sub and amp, you'll most likely need to disconnect the Main front L and R speakers from the amp and connect to the sub's Speaker Output terminals - and connect a couple of new speaker cables between the sub's Speaker Input terminals and the amp's Main front L and R terminals.

If you don't understand completely, provide the make and model of the amp and the sub, and I'll be able to clear up anything that isn't clear.

Do you plug the sub woofer outputs to another amp?


Yes, for best results. Your subwoofer should have a seperate amplifier because it has low pass filter that produces low frequency signals. It is done by connecting the sub woofer output to the input signal of the amplifier and then connecting the output signal to the subwoofer speaker terminals. Hope this helps.

How do I connect this subwoofer to my reciever


The simplest way is to insert the sub into the speaker wire run -- connect your receiver's speaker output to the sub input, then the sub output to the speakers.

These are the "High Level" connectors on the left side of your sub.

If your receiver has a subwoofer out (either one or a stereo pair) then you'll get better quality sound by connecting that output to the "Low Level" connector or connectors on the right. If you have stereo, then use both connectors. If your receiver only has one subwoofer output, then connect it to the left (may or may not me marked as "mono" depending on the age of your sub)

Hopefully that helps. If it's confusing, post back questions or post the details (brand and model) for your receiver.

My output rca jacks are not working. where can i buy some more to fix my amp?


The thing about Jl audio amp is that you have to choose between using the sub output or the the rca output. In order to use the rca output you will have to switch a switch next to the gain level. And it should be label low/high voltage. If you want to use the sub output then leave it on low if you want to use the rca output then switch it to high. I hope that solve your problem

When i wire my sub up,it flexs out and stays there with no sound..


You have dc voltage on your output, not good. Do you have another source to hook up the sub to? (even low power) If you can hear it with low power source, try a regular speaker on the sub output (At No Volume Level) I would be willing to bet the sub output is faulty, or wired incorrectly. Hope this helps.

Too much bass...low end


Hi, have you tried adjusting the "subwoofer level", and or the "subwoofer cut" controls? Every sub I have ever seen has at least the level control on the back. The "cut or crossover" control determines the frequency at which the sub will start to respond. Additionally, you may need to access the appropriate menu on you reciever and adjust the "low frequency effects" (LFE) output level (assuming you have connected your sub to the reciever's sub output jack.

Hope this helps.

RXV 995 SUB output is DEAD


If there is a real failure in the Sub Output it would indeed be unusual. I'd still sift carefully through all of the settings. The Sub Out is very likely to be its own unique channel so I would try something that bypasses multichannel decoding entirely, like plug in something low-bass-rich to the Subwoofer (IN) at the External Decoder area on the left rear of the unit. Press Ext. Decoder and see what comes out of the Sub output. This bypasses all DSP and could prove if the Sub Out really does work.

Does it not work in speaker level setup either? That at least would eliminate any source issues.

RCA Problem


You need an active subwoofer input in your amplifier.Which amplifier you are using? Only latest pioneer amplifiers has active sub input and sub output which can be connected to subwoofer.If you dont have active input then you will have to connect it the way you did in old player.
