    i have a mitsubish powered subwoofer that is making nothing but puffy air noises when it is turned on.  i am not sure how to get it working.  Here is the set up. I have receiver that has a subwoofer output jack on the back of it. the ouptut is an rca type. On the back of the powered subwoofer , there are low input  jacks, of which there are two, and there are high input jacks. According to the manual, all i need to do is connect a rca cord from the output on the back of the receiver to the  left low imput on the woofer. This does not seem to be working.  Any suggestion?  
    Thanks, 
    Kevin

Actually, I had the same problem with my JBL PB10. It was the cable. I had to buy a one direction shielded rca cable. If you put it in backwards it will not work. The cable was around 75.00. But it was well worth it. The first cable I tried was a cheap sony brand sub rca cable. I ended up buying the AR(Acoustic Research) 15ft. directional subwoofer RCA cable from Best Buy. Make sure you have your receiver set to the proper setting too. If you have it hooked to main, set it to main. If you have it hooked to the L.F.E.(RCA cable) set it on L.F.E.. Some have the option to set to both. If it is a non powered sub a RCA cable will not work. You will have to run your main speaker cables to the sub first, then from the sub to the speakers. It then "piggybacks" the Low Frequency signals from the receiver.

Well, as I know, your Cerwin Vega subwoofer is designed for use with stereo systems. Therefore, it has only 2 channels for input, and 2 channels for output as well. However, you can try this out; the first thing I suggest is that you hook up your main front channels through the subwoofer. All you have to do is to connect the subwoofer input to the front channel output on the amp, then hook up your front speakers to the satellite output on the subwoofer. As long as you make sure that system is working on 8 ohms, I believe this can activate the subwoofer.

    my solution to the problem you have mentioned in your comment could be that you should grab a Y connector to split the single LFE output on your amp to a pair. Then hook it up both to the left and the right LFE inputs on the sub. this will double the bass you get from the sub.

How can I hook up my cerwin Vega ht 10d subwoofer to my computer surround system


You'll need some adapter cables. I would probably try a Y cable in each front speaker line, then connect the pair from the left channel to the "L" binding posts on the back of the Sub. Same for the right.
Not sure of the configuration of your existing surround system. Essentially, you want to "Y" the left and right channels wherever you can get a hold of them and connect each to the back of the sub.

The wires from Line level converter where to hook them up?


Firstly, and definitely, your "black" is subwoofer line out.

Check your AV receiver if the subwoofer option is activated. I've known some receivers that have the option to disable subwoofers and push all the bass into their front speakers.

Next, you have to check if your subwoofer is on or off? what about the volume of the sub?

If your subwoofer is passive, which means it does not require powering up using the mains, then you will have to get a seperate amplifier to power the sub up.

  • Sounds like the speaker coil to me.
  • Yours is a a 150 watt, 12" subwoofer. If I were you I would not knock my head on the table looking for a Cerwin Vega to put into there. You can a far better quality one for a reasonable price. This Pioneer here.

  • I don't see that Amp blowing this speaker and it averages about $75. Just turn the box on it's side and remove the screws holding the speaker in place. Drop the speaker. Remove connectors and revers to finis the job.

I have a Phoenix Gold Octane Amp and 10d subwoofers. My friend took it out last week, and I want to put it back it, but I can't figure out where the power and ground wires go and where the speaker wire...


Ok, when you look at the amp, the power + and ground - will be on one side of the amp with another smaller opening in between them. That opening is for your remote wire from your radio. Without that, your amp will not receive the input voltage to signal it to turn on. The speakers will go into the remaining open holes. Your RCA wires will be on the opposite end of the amp.

How do I hook up a non powered sub woofer on my htr-5630?


You will need an amplifier or 2 channel receiver. Hook the sub out rca jack to the rca inputs on this new amp or receiver and hook the speaker terminals on sub to speaker terminals on same amp or receiver. Your Yamaha receiver doesn't have any power for a passive sub.Just pick up any old fairly high powered receiver for fifty dollars and you're good to go.I use old dolby pro logic receivers as they are a dime a dozen today. Good luck.
