Re: how to wire

1st off i have the same system, but who ever said you were missing the receiver they are right. the jensen jht-805 (that does come with a JS-800 sub) is not a "stand alone system you need to hook them up to a receiver to get them to work. i have them hooked up to sony 6.1 600watt system and they work great. sorry to have to give you the bad news that you have to buy a receiver to enjoy the speakers.......if anyone could email me on where to buy a replacement speaker for the front one of the jht-805 i'd be grateful (my daughter poked it with a pen)

Re: how to wire

From the TV or Cable Box look for the audio output (red/white) use a RCA cable and hook to your Jensen system. Look for audio input on your Jensen and choose the right input selection. Example: Aux connect the RCA on the Aux input, TV connect the RCA on the TV input on your Jensen and so on....

Can I hook these directly to my TV

No. The jacks on the back of your tv are line level. That means no power. To get the power, you need a reciever. Red and white RCA wires will go from your tv's out and the other end to an input on your reciever, and your speaker will be wired to the speaker out jacks on your reciever.

How to connect Jensen subwoofer CS10 to Yamaha Receiver HTR5660

Does the yamaha have a subwoofer line out RCA type jack? Most receivers with 5.1 output will. Just insert a male rca to male rca patch cable from the receiver to the line in on the subwoofer,( not the speaker wire inputs) Plate on the sub may say low level input, and setup the receiver menu option for SUB? yes/ no to yes, this will direct the low frequencies to the subwoofer.

Hooking up system

You have a green orange and black connection, hook those to the subwoofer, on the other end of each of those connections is a split connection which splits to a Red/White cable that is provided, correspond the red/white to your dvd unit as such (Front Left, Front Right, Surround Right, Center and Sub), if your dvd player only has a 1 white/red port then you will only be able to use the 2 chanels, so just 1 split will be required.

Hum in subwoofer

If you have cables hooked up and have not installed them to the components when turned on the speaker will hum.
If your electrical outlet is not grounded properly you speaker will hum.
Personally I'd take it back and get a new one. if you just purchased it.
If this happens again try a grounded curcit first then go from there.
