On the back of the amp, there should be a jack with the name "SUBWOOFER PRE OUT". It is a standard RCA jack, but it only puts out a line output, meaning only self-powered subwoofers will work with it. Usually, if the subwoofer does not have an amp, it will have 2 imputs and 2 outputs. You plug the two left and right inputs into the front speaker jack on the amp, and then plug the front speakers into the left and right amp on the subwoofer.

    Also, did the subwoofer come with the amp?

How should i connect my subwoofer- is it directly to the speakers or amplifier?t


I'm assuming that you are using a standard amplifier with L and R speaker outputs if a stereo Amp.... or L and R and SUB standard RCA output jacks. If it is a more complicated setup, having surround sound speaker jacks, then look for a SUB OUT jack or plug.
Some Subwoofers are self-powered, having their own, built in amplifier especially designed for that model. Sometimes they require a SUB connection and a power supply to the 110V AC house power too. These sometimes need a connection to a standard 3.5 mm HEADPHONE jack output plug. If it's this type, then the front of your amplifier could have one. Either way, the musical signal from amplifier to the subwoofer must be available on your Amp AND be received by the type of subwoofer you are using.

What wire do I plug in for the subwoofer cause I I have read cables but there's 2 and I only have 1 connection for the sub on the back of the stereo


This subwoofer is probably powered directly from the amplifier and doesn't have an internal amp. The connections are probably the same type as for any other speakers. And, there are probably additional connections for the rest of the speakers. The connection on your amp is likely an RCA phono plug connector that sends low level signals to a powered subwoofer. To connect a passive subwoofer, one without a built-in amp, the main speaker outputs connect to the subwoofer and are then sent to the regular speakers connected to additional terminals on the subwoofer. You may need an owner's manual for the subwoofer to determine how it should be connected.

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.

Unable to receive optimum output. The bass is totally flat !


Hi, ok the Bose Acoustimass III system consists of two small cube speakers and one subwoofer unit called the Acoustimass bass module. If the subwoofer stops working, three points can be the cause of the failure. The Bose Acoustimass III is a passive system, meaning the speakers do not power themselves, but instead are connected to a receiver or amplifier. Thus, the amplifier, the speaker between the amplifier and the subwoofer, or the subwoofer itself could be the issue.

Things You'll Need:

* Amplifier
* Speaker cable
* Extra subwoofer


Instructions


Disconnect the speaker cable from the back of the Bose Accoustimass bass module and connect it to a subwoofer that is known to be working. If the subwoofer works, the bass module needs to be replaced.


Disconnect the speaker cable from the back of the receiver or amplifier you are using and from the back of the subwoofer in Step 1.


Connect a speaker cable that is known to be working between the back of the receiver or amplifier and the back of the Accoustimass module. If the module starts working, then the cable was the issue.


Disconnect the speaker cable from Step 3 from the back of the amplifier or receiver, then connect the cable to the subwoofer port on the back of an amplifier or receiver that is known to be working. If the subwoofer works, the receiver was the issue. If the subwoofer still does not work, verify that the speaker cable is in the subwoofer port of the receiver/amplifier and that the cable is connected securely to the subwoofer.



If you think you did the connection properly,Fine... If not you can use the manual from the below link and know how to connect it properly..

Speaker wire for subwoofer


Usually, a subwoofer will have its own built-in power amplifier. Thus, it will be designed to plug into a standard RCA jack (the type used for DVD players, etc). rather than having wires to connect to a speaker terminal block. Look for a jack on the back of the receiver called "Subwoofer", or simply "SW". If your subwoofer has 2 single wires, it WON'T work with your reveiver's subwoofer output, as this output only carries a line-level signal and is not amplified. You would need a separate power amplifier for this type of SW. If your SW speaker has a DVD-type plug, it should work fine with the receiver's SW output jack.

Subwoofer


Most AV receivers do not have a built in amplifier block to drive a subwoofer, and merely provide the subwoofer output channel at line voltage. Thus, a powered subwoofer is required. Does the subwoofer require mains power? From your description, I'm guessing it doesn't. If not, it does not have a buit in amplifier, you will need to purchase a monoblock amplifier, which is just a mono amplifier with a volume control, no tone controls or anything else. Make sure that the amplifier power rating is as close as possible to the subwoofer power rating, as it is quite possible to blow a speaker by using an amplifier whose power output is too low, by overdriving the amplifier , and putting DC through the voice coil when the amplifier clips. If it does require mains power, it will have an amplifier built in, but does not have line level inputs.
