SOURCE: what is the voltage to power the sub. model#

If this is a house unit, it'll take 110V AC to power it up, then there is a voltage regulator after that that drops the voltage, so the electronics don't burnout.

SOURCE: whats a control jack on a sony SS-WG450

That subwoofer is included in the MHC-GX450 system. I have the amp/CD/radio unit. but not the subwoofer. The control cable connects the LED on the Sub to the main unit. When the main unit detects this connection to the LED it switches on its internal subwoofer amp to drive the subwoofer.

Does the JVC receiver use a "control" circuit through its external subwoofer unit to signal that it is connected to the subwoofer? If not, you do not need to use the control jack on the
SS-WG450 to connect to the JVC receiver. Connecting the Sony subwoofer to a subwoofer output on the JVC unit may be enough. Do check the impedance required by your JVC receiver. Sony lists the SS-WG450 as having a Nominal impedance of 6 Ohms. Is this high enough for the JVC unit?

Ok i just got the sub from a sony sswg450 i want to know is there some way to hook it up to my Pioneer home Receiver


Did you get a manual with it? According to the Sony site this speaker originates in Sony MHC-GX450.

"This product bundle includes the following models:
HCD-GX450 - STEREO MINI SYSTEM
RM-SC3 - REMOTE CONTROL for Shelf Mini Systems
SSRG444 - FRONT SPEAKER FOR MHCGX450
SS-WG450 - SUBWOOFER FOR MHCGX450"


Find the manual here and learn a bit about your seprated sub...

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=MHCGX450

See page 7.

As can be seen, the subwoofer has two connections to the mothership, very unlike the standard speaker level (+/-) speaker wire or RCA-Line-Level subwoofer out that 'normal passive or active subwoofers use, respectively.

Not knowing which of those your unspecified Pioneer receiver supports, it is impossible to say. Does your Pioneer have that control jack?

Mini-systems are generally not designed to be pieced out and used with grown-up gear. The absence of standardized connections is the clue.

I have been given a Sony SS-WSX1 subwoofer. However |I do not have the bespoke cabe. I need the pin out of the sub woofer to connect the unit to my system.


The sub was part of a Sony DAV-X1. This whole system is highly proprietary in its connections for a reason. For all anyone knows, the original amp's output was frequency-shaped to correct for speaker response issues, like Bose would do. Substituting a different amp may be electrically unwise and audibly unsatisfying. It is certain that the DAV base unit did all the electronic magic to create a surround effect from only 2 speakers and a sub.

Your best bet to put these speakers to use would be to examine the sub and speakers for two conductors each that would be for the amplifier's audio output. Measured across them wit han ohmmeter it would read somether around 6 ohms.

Then somehow craft a physical connector to carry an amp's speaker output to it and carefully test it with very low volume.

My left speaker to my Sony HCD-GX450 stereo is


Make sure that Loudness switch is turned off & bass is not boasted up. Most cars have small cheap speakers that can't handle the bass. also its better to cut the low frequency from the woofer using a passive or active crossover. Most nowadays head units have got some sort of built in crossover. Refer to your head unit manual.

When iturn on my Sony STR-DE325 it goes into protect mode


Try disconnecting all of your speakers, and then turn on you unit. If you have a defective speaker, or a short in your wires, your unit will go into protect mode. If your unit seems ok with the speakers disconnected, then turn unit off, hook up one of the speaker leads and try it. This way you can isolate the problem.......

Good Luck,

Eric
