SW-910, blown speaker or ? makes rattle/buzz sound. replace speaker and/or change to passive type sw?

i would suggest replacing it rather than fixing. The cost of the repair will be about the same.
if you went to a passive sub/seperate power amp setup you could get a much higher quality unit, but it would cost you considerably more cash.

Klh powered sub woofer

Low level inputs are designed to take signals directly from an amplifier's "sub out" connections. That way the KLH amplifier will use those signals to produce sound and the volume can be balanced between the main amplifier and the sub amplifier using the sub's volume controls. Depending on your amplifier and sub, that is the best way to connect them. However, be careful running the RCA cables since the low levels are more subject to interference. Keep the runs as short as possible and use high quality shielded cables for the interconnects.

New sony receiver str-dh740 has 2 RCA plugs for sub woofer. How do I connect to psw350

only use one of the outputs from the rear of the str-dh740. and use a rca "y" adapter where you plug it into the subwoofer so that both of the inputs on the sub are getting a signal.

Can I hookup a Sony receiver STR-DE505 to a Bassbite 2 KLH Audio system and how??


It's frustrating that KLH manuals seem impossible to find anywhere online BUT a simple picture will suffice...

Go here and supersize the picture of the rear of the sub...

Run your front channel speaker wires to the CLEARLY-MARKED connectors on the sub and daisy-chain your front speakers to the CLEARLY-MARKED connectors on the sub.

Adjust the sub volume to match the front speakers levels. This will give you local volume control at the Sony.

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 :-)

Sony SW no sound

does this sub have an LFE output? if so, connect that to the LFE input on the reciever and make sure it is set up properly in the set up menu in speaker configuration. if the sub has speaker line input outputs, connect speakers to input of sub and out of sub to amp/recvr

Optimum set up for Polk Audio PSW 10?

Run 2 RCA cables from the two Purple connections on your Receiver (Labled "PRE OUT SUBWOOFER") to the Red and White connectors on the back of your Sub (it does not matter which Purple connecter you plug into either the Red and White)

Set the volume control on the Sub to about 75%, and keep the power switch in the "ON AUTO" position. To set the Low Pass value, look at the back of one of the front speakers in your setup, and note its frequency range (will look something like 100Hz - 17kHz). Set the Low Pass at a value slightly higher than the low value on the back of your surround speakers.

To set the phase switch, stand in the middle of the room with some music on (something with some bass, but not over the top bass) and have someone switch between 0 Deg and 180 Deg. Listen for which setting sounds "Louder and Fuller". This is the one you want. You will need to do this each time you move the Sub, as its position may change its phase in relation to the rest of your system.

Good Luck!

Replacing sub speaker

I wouldn't try reinventing it by replacing the driver. Drivers and their enclosures are designed to work together. And this being a self-amplified subwoofer, there is one more piece that's electrically optimized to the rest. Don't mess with it.

Why don't you just set your receiver's individual relative speaker volume levels so the sub isn't weak by comparison to your other speakers? Weakness, as you call it, is relative.

Is your receiver properly channeling Low Frequencies to the sub? Experiment with the cutoff, too.

This problem doesn't require meatball surgery.

I can't get bass thru the spkrs

So when you aren't using the sub woofer there's not enough bass, so you need more out of the other speakers. Chances are the front speakers are set to "small" in the receivers menu, change it to "large"if your front speakers have a 6 inch woofer or larger. Note: If you leave the sub on, the input signal to it will be greatly reduced when the speakers are set to "large". Hope this helps.
