Yamaha RX-V1200 subwoofer connection to Mirage BPS-150i subwoofer

My Yamaha RX-V1200 receiver has a single jack for a sub woofer out. The Mirage BPS 150i subwoofer has a 4 RCA connection, a mono input and a crossover input. The Mirage manual is confusing me as the diagram depicts a 4 RCA connection. Is there such a cable as a 4 RCA into one ?? Any help would be greatly appreciated.. thanks.. Bob, Lawrenceville, GA

Just connect your subwoofer mono RCA to your amp sub single out rca connector. you do not need to megre all those 4terminals into one. in fact internal circuit of those 4rca are merging inside to one since the sub uses only a single amp. 4inputs was meant for sources with multiple sub out

No sub woofer volume

Make sure Subwoofer power is on and connected with RCA cable in correct place.

Go into setup of "Speaker setup" and select 5.1 setup. Activate subwoofer to YES if setting is No.

On some Amps you need to select front speakers to SMALL even if you have large speakers to enabled subwoofer.

I have already purchased a yamaha receiver rx-v667 7.2 channels and I am looking for a subwoofer. Before purchasing the subwoofer I would like to understand how many connection options I already have: LFE?...

The 667 has two line level outputs to feed a subwoofer. They are identical. You only need one for most sub woofers. You need a suitable length pin audio (RCA) audio cable to connect.

I'm making an assumption: that you're using a powered subwoofer as required by this receiver.

Since the RX-V463's amplifiers don't drive the sub directly, and it supplies the sub's amp with only a Line Level signal, the impedance of the sub is irrelevant.

You need to use an amplified sub. The Yamaha receiver is only sending "Pre-Amp Signal" not amplified audio like the rest of your speakers. If your sub has a crossover built in, connect it's speaker level (wires) to the "B" side of the receiver which will send audio to your sub and it will cross it over internally. Not the best sounding, but it works. Amplified subs range in price from 200 and up. Hope this helps

Does the sub work at all? How is it hooked up? The sub needs to be fed by an RCA cable from the Subwoofer Output jack for the receiver to control its output.

Bare wire sub to single RCA jack receiver

Yes you can modify RCA cables to make bare wire tails.
If the unit has a sub o/p then you just connect up your sub bass unit to whatever the amp needs.

An RCA cable is 2 wire which is all you would normally need for sub bass speaker level signal.
It may be a good idea to eventually upgrade the wire size if you want really good sub bass as lower frequencies draw more current and so require more copper.

Please let me know if this any help, thanks for using FixYa.

Which jacks to wire the subwoofer to?

Your receiver should have an RCA connector on the back panel that will be marked "sub woofer" or "LFE out". That connects to your sub woofer with a standard RCA type cable. Also, some powered subs have left and right speaker level inputs and outputs in which you would indeed run the sub woofer through the speaker outputs. The down side of that type of connection is that the line level converter inside the sub woofer will take a slight amount of your receiver's output power, although that is rarely detectable. Also, if you have a Dolby Digital receiver, using this connection method will take away systems ability to accurately control the low frequency effects of a soundtrack.

Good Luck,

Connection of a subwoofer to Yamaha ZX-V490

Get a powered sub-woofer that has speaker level inputs, then run your front speaker wires into the sub-woofers speaker level input and then run a set of speaker wires from the sub-woofers speaker wire output to your front speakers. This is a common way to use a sub-woofer with a receiver that doesn't have a sub-woofer output.

Most powered sub-woofers have these connections, just check it out first before you buy one. They look like speaker jacks on the back of the receiver.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
