How do I bypass control cable on Sony mhc-gx450 stereo?

I have the stereo receiver but not the original subwoofer it came with SS-WG450. There is a rca connector and a 2 pin 'control' cable that appears to power LED's on the original sub and tell the receiver unit to turn its amp on. How do I bypass this control cable so I can use any other sub???

SOURCE: what is the voltage to power the sub. model#

If this is a house unit, it'll take 110V AC to power it up, then there is a voltage regulator after that that drops the voltage, so the electronics don't burnout.

If not then check that (a) the plugs are correctly inserted in the two sockets on the back of the the mhc-gx450, and (b) check that the subwoofer is activated on the mhc-gx450 unit.

Whats a control jack on a sony SS-WG450 plug into if i'm hooking it to a JVC reciever?


That subwoofer is included in the MHC-GX450 system. I have the amp/CD/radio unit. but not the subwoofer. The control cable connects the LED on the Sub to the main unit. When the main unit detects this connection to the LED it switches on its internal subwoofer amp to drive the subwoofer.

Does the JVC receiver use a "control" circuit through its external subwoofer unit to signal that it is connected to the subwoofer? If not, you do not need to use the control jack on the
SS-WG450 to connect to the JVC receiver. Connecting the Sony subwoofer to a subwoofer output on the JVC unit may be enough. Do check the impedance required by your JVC receiver. Sony lists the SS-WG450 as having a Nominal impedance of 6 Ohms. Is this high enough for the JVC unit?

Look up "Hooking Up Optional Components" and assess what your PC's audio and video capabilities are that would use the Game Inputs. The Sony end accepts standard RCA pin cables x 3. Adapters are available at any electronics store to match your PC to that. Within the PC you need to configure the audio via whatever Sound Controls are in charge.

Ok i just got the sub from a sony sswg450 i want to know is there some way to hook it up to my Pioneer home Receiver


Did you get a manual with it? According to the Sony site this speaker originates in Sony MHC-GX450.

"This product bundle includes the following models:
HCD-GX450 - STEREO MINI SYSTEM
RM-SC3 - REMOTE CONTROL for Shelf Mini Systems
SSRG444 - FRONT SPEAKER FOR MHCGX450
SS-WG450 - SUBWOOFER FOR MHCGX450"


Find the manual here and learn a bit about your seprated sub...

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=MHCGX450

See page 7.

As can be seen, the subwoofer has two connections to the mothership, very unlike the standard speaker level (+/-) speaker wire or RCA-Line-Level subwoofer out that 'normal passive or active subwoofers use, respectively.

Not knowing which of those your unspecified Pioneer receiver supports, it is impossible to say. Does your Pioneer have that control jack?

Mini-systems are generally not designed to be pieced out and used with grown-up gear. The absence of standardized connections is the clue.

What voltage required to power a sony subwoofer


Hey,

I just got one of these units, the SONY SS-WG990.
The RCA cable is direct conection to the speaker.
It requires external AMP.
The other cable is just for the system switch and LED.
If you just have this unit, all you need is an AMP to
feed it.
