Shouldn't do this. Thicker cables do draw more power, but sub may not be able to handle the input volume wattage. Double check connections to make sure they are tight and getting full contact.

Subwoofer channel no longer has output


Is your sub powered (amplifier built-in)? If so, connect your MP3 player directly to the sub input and see if you hear audio. If you do hear audio, check for cable problems from Panasonic to sub input. If the sub is unpowered then it's either the speaker wiring, an intermittent sub and/or your Panasonic at fault.

How to connect new flat screen tv with hdmi cable to an olin ross sound system 6050 home theater 1000 watts


Evidently this system is a speaker system that hooks up to 5.1 home theater receiver. I've included a few quote on how to hook up the 6050 system:
" Measure and cut wires running from the speakers to the receivers"

Subwoofer pops when first powered on


If the cable is really old try getting a new one. I would recommend either a monoprice cable or a mediabridge cable both are as high quality and much cheaper than a monster.

I'm having a problem where the subwoofer of my Home Theater system cuts out on me. Indicator light constantly changes to red for no apparent reason. I find that unplugging/replugging the RCA cable from...


If this is happening only with subwoofer section and all other channells are fine. Then this could be because of the electronics inside the amp box. or sometimes may be bad contact at subwoofer cone also. But as you said by volume up and on/off makes it alright, then the probability is more with electronics inside.(draining signals)

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.

Lengthen speaker cable


i had same problem. yeah, there's not much wire included. i just purchased a spool of speaker wire and got the length i needed. since the wires are usually color-coded, i tagged each new wire with 2 stick-on-spots, with sticky side back to back over the wire, and wrote RR & LR to make it easier for locating them in a jumble. you can also just splice and tape extra wire on but i feel every cut cuts back on quality of sound.

Philips Home Theater Speaker Wire (can it be cut?)


Sure you can, Joel.

Put the speakers wherever they will go, and cut the wire from the speaker to whatever length you need to reach your wall terminals. Leave some slack so you can move the speakers if needed. Strip off whatever length of insulation you need to make the terminal connection. Note that the speaker wire will have some kind of polarity marking. There will be a colored stripe or other mark on the insulation, or the conductors themselves may be different colors (usually one wire is copper, and the other tinned so it's silver colored). It doesn't matter which you use for positive as long as you're consistent and use the same one for each speaker.

At the other end where the prewiring comes out for your home-theater system, splice the connector ends you cut off onto the installed wires, following the same polarity. I recommend using an appropriate size insulated **** splice to make the connection. The crimper and splices can be found at auto parts stores, Radio Shack or most hardware stores. It's quick, reliable and makes sure there are no bare wires to short out.

Plug the speakers into the system and you should be good to go. Whip up some popcorn and enjoy the show!
