Re: Speaker hook up

depending on the speakers, (2 way ) you can use a splitter, but you also hace to check if your sound card support 2 speakers too, or what brand its?
but the splitter in this case , if you have no other problem, is the best bet.
good luck

OmniS10 does not work

Mine has issue with the sub input that runs from the receiver sub output. So I don't have the LFE effect. I have to use the secondary hookup which is:
-run your front speaker wires from the receiver into the input. Then run wires out back to your front speakers.
Is your completely dead period? Or is the light coming on? If its dead, it may be a fuse or the power supply has failed....if the light comes on. Try the secondary hookup. Make sure both your reciever and the sub are unplugged. Plug them back in after you have hooked everything up..

How do i connect my klh bassbite V subwoofer to my sony receiver model str de335?

I am basing hookup on my Bassbite !! manual. The procedure should be the same as on your Bassbite V

I have given you a link to your Sony Owner manual. It looks like you will connect your sub to the sub output on the rear of your reciever using the rca cable. Woofer out on the Sony to the R/Mono input on your Bassbite. If you have the front and rear speakers hook your rears into the rear speaker outputs then connect your front speakers to the front speaker outputs of your Sony. Your speaker jacks on the Bassbite will not be used for this configuration.

Now, adjust your speaker size setting for "SMALL" or "LARGE" speakers as appropriate for your setup (this is for the front and rear speakers and will not effect your Bassbite). Now set your Sony subwoofer output to "ON" You access this setting through your menu. That should be located on your remote for the Sony. You will want to refer to the manual to find the exact method to access your system menu.

If the link to your manual doesn't work for you then go to and click on Operating instructions.

Hope this helps. Let me know okay? By the way, if this works for you you should be very pleased with the sound quality :-)

Hi -

Sony CD player Red / White RCA - > CD input RCAs on the Arcam.

From the Arcam Preamp Output RCA's, go to the Bose "Input". From the Bose "Output", you need RCA splitters to make them into four outputs to run your amplifier connections.clmrt5000_2.jpgclmrt5000_3.jpg

When I hook up the speakers in the back to the left and right side for the in and out, do I connect the front or rear speakers. do the speakers connect to the subwoofer first then to my receiver or the...

I was trying to find an owner's manual or picture of the rear panel of the sub, but had no luck. The subwoofer is a powered type - or "active" speaker. This means it has a built in amplifier. These active subs usually provide for one or both "low level" and "high level" inputs. Low level signals are usually carried by shielded coaxial cables and have RCA type plugs on the end. The low level is also called "line level". This is an un-amplified signal that might be heard on cheap earphones - but that's about it. It is similar to the output of a tape deck, DVD or phonograph. These signals require an amplifier to be heard. If you have a sub woofer output on your receiver or amplifier, you could run a patch cable between the low level input on the subwoofer and the subwoofer output of the amp or receiver. You receiver or amp may call this output "low frequency effects" or similar. The front and rear speakers would then connect directly to the receiver or amp's corresponding connections.

If you lack low level outputs on the amp or subwoofer, you'll need to run speaker wires from the amplifier or receiver's front left and right speaker output terminals to the subwoofer's high level input terminals. High level signals are speaker connections or amplified signals. These are typically connections that accept bare wire connections. The front speakers would then connect to the subwoofer's front left and right speaker output terminals. The rear speakers connect to the amplifier.

I hope this helps - and good luck!

Which is the best way to hook up a Subwoofer?

Last two questions first - YES, use an RCA splitter to share sub line level out between two subs and use one at the subwoofer end to share that line with both inputs on the sub.

Either attachment scheme you describe would work.

Not being a big fan of conversion/deconversion for no real purpose, I would avoid stepping the high-level input down to line level for use by the sub's internal amp, run RCA to the sub(s) and keep them physically and electrically independent of anything else unless cable routing is facilitated somehow by daisy-chaining other speakers from the sub(s).

Left Channel does not work. Subwoofer and Right Channel work fine. The plug needs to be plugged into the brown jack on the front of the computer to work at all.

Sort of sounds like there's a PC in the mix.

Can you swap the left and right speakers to isolate the speaker from the source as the problem?

Have you tried switching the various plugs around to isolate if anything comes out to the Left Channel, ever or if any other speaker plugged in as the Left works at all? Turn the volume down and bring it up slowly at first because if you send Subwoofer programming to a speaker not designed for it you may damage it.

If nothing works when plugged in as the Left speaker, maybe the sound card is the problem. Resubmit a question with the source or the PC as the problem

My klh subwoofer has R&L connections to speaker and R&L connections to amplifier, but my new amp has a RCA cable connection plug-in. Any way I can use the old subwoofer with the new system?

Yes, you use a subwoofer cable and hook it into the mono rca jack in the back of the sub. or you can use a Y splitter 1 female to 2 males. or if your amp has 2 sub outputs (L&R) then use both. I do believe it's said that if you use the high level input, it's better. I forgot why...

Oh yeah. the difference between the 2 is a high level input allows the currant from the amp to pass through the sub, thus allowing the continuation of wattage to your other speakers.
Low level input is only taking a audio signal from the amp. No power is being sen through the connection.

Please check your model number, I can not find it on the JVC service website.

This is a powered sub-woofer I think. You need to have a thick black cord that connects the sub to the head unit. Then the satellite speakers get connected to the speaker jacks on the sub-woofer box. The sub-woofer should also be plugged into an A/C outlet on the wall.

The speaker outputs are labeled right there where you connect the speaker wires. You should see a red and black connector for each speaker and they are labeled "front right" "front left" "center" "rear right" "rear left".

If you do not have the thick black cord you need to connect the head unit with the sub-woofer, you can not use this system.

If you look at the head unit and give me the model number on it, I may be able to find the part you need. But I must have a good model number to work with, preferably from the head unit.

Subwoofer to receiver hookup

In general, there are two ways to hook up your sub-woofer. First using the high level outputs from your receiver ( speaker output from the front R & L speaker terminals ) run a set of wires from the outputs to the speaker inputs on the sub-woofer, you do this in concert with the speaker wires going to the front R & L speakers which you then attach to the R & L speaker outputs on the sub woofer amp. Note that the sub woofer doesn't power your front speakers, the connections from the sub amp are just a pass through connection where the signal needed by the sub is parasitically taken from the inputs.
Second is via a low level output from your receiver / amp to the low level input on your sub amp. This is normally done via a RCA type of patch cable and connected to the sub woofer RCA jack on the rear of the source receiver or amp, Next run the patch cord to the sub amp an into the RCA jack input. IF you have a right and left input, use the Right input.
