Conncet a sony sub to a denon reciver


Depending on the model, there are two ways to connect a subwoofer to an amplifier, receiver or processor. The best way is to connect the subwoofer to the SUB OUT or LFE output of a receiver, but some subwoofers can be connected to the speaker level outputs of the receiver or amplifier.


1. How to Connect a Subwoofer to the Subwoofer Output


The preferred method of connecting a subwoofer is through the LFE or Subwoofer output (SUB OUT) of a receiver. Almost all home theater receivers (or processors) and some stereo receivers have a subwoofer output. The LFE (Low Frequency Effects) is a special output for subwoofers and is often labeled 'SUBWOOFER' not LFE. 5.1 channel programs on DVD discs have a dedicated .1 channel output with bass-only content that is best reproduced by a subwoofer. Connect the output of the LFE or Subwoofer jack to the Line In jacks of the subwoofer using a single RCA cable (the two jacks on the left in the photo). A 'Y-Cable' may be necessary to connect the LFE output to both the left and right channels of the subwoofer.

2. How to Connect a Subwoofer to Speaker Level Outputs
Some receivers and amplifiers do not have an LFE or Subwoofer output. In this case you can use the speaker outputs of the receiver to connect the subwoofer. Using speaker wire, connect the left and right channel speaker outputs of the receiver to the left and right channel speaker level inputs on the subwoofer (the speaker inputs on the right side of the photo). Using speaker wire, connect the left and right channel speaker outputs on the back of the subwoofer to the left and right channel front speakers.

Hope it helped..

It keeps turning off eventhough the back switch is turned on


You need to determine if its a malfunction of the sub or just due to a loss of input. And is it always in response to, say, over-enthusiastic use?

From the manual...

TROUBLESHOOTING

If you used the high-level (speaker) inputs and there is no sound from any of the

speakers:

• Check that receiver/amplifier is on and a source is playing.

• Check that powered subwoofer is plugged into an active electrical outlet and is switched on.

• Check all wires and connections between receiver/amplifier and speakers. Make sure all wires

are connected. Make sure none of the speaker wires are frayed, cut or punctured.

• Review proper operation of your receiver/amplifier.

If there is low (or no) bass output:

• Make sure the connections to the left and right "Speaker Inputs" have the correct polarity (+ and -).

• Make sure that the subwoofer is plugged into an active electrical outlet and switched on.

• Adjust the crossover point.

• Flip the Phase Control switch to the opposite position.

• If you are using a Dolby Digital/DTS receiver or processor, make sure that the

subwoofer adjustments on the receiver/processor are set up correctly.

• Slowly turn the Level Control clockwise until you begin to hear the desired amount of bass.

If you used the line-level inputs and there is no sound from the subwoofer:

• Check that receiver/amplifier is on and a source is playing.

• Check that powered subwoofer is plugged into an active electrical outlet and is switched on.

• Check all wires and connections between receiver/amplifier and subwoofer.

Make sure all wires are connected. Make sure none of the wires are frayed, cut or punctured.

• Review proper operation of your receiver/amplifier.

• Slowly turn the Level Control clockwise until you begin to hear the desired amount of bass.

• Make sure that you have configured your receiver/processor so that the subwoofer/LFE output is on.

Here's my delema...........I have a Pioneer subwoofer HTP102-SW and want to conect to my Pioneer AC receiver. Subwoofer has 8 speaker ports (L+R output & L+R input). Do the speakers connect to the...


The left and right outputs from the receiver go to the left and right inputs on the subwoofer and then you wire the left and right speakers to the left and right outputs on the subwoofer....it is sort of what we calll daisy chained

Won't work it's all hooked up right and the sub appears to look fine but it won't cut on


Check the power to the amp and work your way back to the subs. Also make sure the wires from the amp to the speakers are connected properly?

Dont know how should the wires be wired on the sub


You have polarity problems there. Try swapping the wires and see if the cones goes up or down... You got the right polarity if the speaker produces sounds when you connect it to your subs.

It comes on but no base sound and wont turn up


You have to fill in the details about what you're feeding it (the source and how IT's set up). It won't just >>create<< bass.

is no sound from any of the speakers:
• Check that receiver/amplifier is on and a source is playing.

I have a subwoofer with standard speaker wire connection, how to I attach to a receiver with a subwoofer cable?


The Subwoofer is Likely Passive....meaning no amplifier is within the enclosure itself....the incompatible connectors mean you cannot connect the subwoofer itself to your surround sound system.

look for a Suitable stand-alone (1 Channel) Amplifer with sufficent power.....connect the RCA Imputs (subwoofer cable) to the Recievers RCA subwoofer output....then connect the amplifier's output to the the wire going into the subwoofer enclosure....if there is a plastic connector simply cut it off and strip the wires down a sufficent lenght....then secure the wires to the output of the amplifier.

if you do this make sure you know the ohm rating of the subwoofer and the minimum ohm rating of the amplifier your using.

The front right speaker does not come on. Once in a while it will, but most of the time it doesn't work. What could be the problem and how do I fix it?


Remove the speaker from its location
1 Check the connecting wire to the speaker is not loose.
OR
2 Check the wire from the radio/player to the speaker is not bend/cut or not pressed in dashboard

Speakers wont fit in car


Look at the old speakers to find out which cable is positive (+) and the other negative (-). Cut the connectors off one at a time, strip the wires, connect them to your new speakers. Negative to negative positive with positive then tape them good with black electrical tape. That's all! If the cables are to short connect more speaker wire.
