Question about Sony STR-DG510 Receiver
I have the sony str-dg510 receiver and tried to hook up a passive subwoofer from my old sony dream system. The connection on the receiver is an rca, and the one on the subwoofer is the two lead terminal. The subwoofer works on my old sony dream system but doesn't make a sound when hooked up to the receiver. Not sure if I need to get another subwoofer. Hoping i won't need to get one. Thank you in advance
Sometimes these subwoofers are for builtin amplified subwoofers..so if this is the case it will not work

Your receiver does not have a power amp to drive the speaker in the subwoofer while your other amp did. With this receiver you need to use a powered (active) subwoofer which has it's own power amp in it. You can either change out your subwoofer to a powered (active) subwoofer, or keep using your passive (unpowered) one and add a power amp between it and the receiver. The easiest way to tell a powered subwoofer is to see if has a place to plug it into the wall. If it does, it will most likely work in this situation.
