Re: hook-up

I own that receiver as well, it does not have a dedicated output for sub woofer. You can hook up to tape two, and it will work fine, just remember to hit the "Tape Two(monitor)" button on the front. That is one way to do it anyway.

Trying to hook up a KLH sub woofer, S100ETH, PSW8-100 to a VCR reciever. Reciever has sub woofer connection but does not works on the KLH sub woofer. What is the problem ?

I suggest you go over your receiver set-up instructions. See if you need to set the receiver to acknolwedge the addition of the subwoofer. It should be in your receiver set-up steps. Just as a check, hook up one of your other speakers to the subwoofer lead to see if gets audio signal. I'm guessing the issue is your receiver settings.

I have a s108sp subwoofer with a right and left input assuming this is for a cable going to one input on my Sony reciever. The subwoofer also has inputs for speakers. Do I plug the speaker wires into...

Hey there houleo!
If your subwoofer has a stereo input and stereo outputs, then it's a good idea to send the signal from your receiver to the sub, then out to the other speakers you have hooked up. Some subwoofers will take the low frequencies out of the signal to the left and right speakers, so that the sub handles it alone. This often gives a nice crisp sound.

Can I hook these directly to my TV

No. The jacks on the back of your tv are line level. That means no power. To get the power, you need a reciever. Red and white RCA wires will go from your tv's out and the other end to an input on your reciever, and your speaker will be wired to the speaker out jacks on your reciever.

How do I hook it up to my Surround sound reciever?

Hooking up a subwoofer is dependent upon what hookups are availble on the receiver and subwoofer. Does your receiver have a specific subwoofer output? If so, is it set of speaker-wire terminals, or is it an RCA jack? The Wharfedale can accomodate either one of these as an input. There are four speaker posts on the back of the subwoofer, and there is a single RCA jack input.

Hooked up the system, subwoofer worked OK for about 3 hours then stopped outputting sound. Tried troubleshooting per manual but no luck. All other speakers appear to be working. I think the subwoofer died...

to make sure its not your reciever unplug sub from pre out side of reciever and with sub on run finger over the tip of the RCA you should get some kind of electral feed back from it through your sub if not then your sub or the amp inside is most likley fried if you know how to open the sub and can access it you may have a mini fuse inside that can be replaced but make sure consult somone about that and not just take my word

Yamaha NX-SW300 sub woofer

Yes, that type of connector is often used for a VGA signal for a computer monitor. But in this case it is an all-in-one connector Yamaha used in order to simplify the hookup of this home theatre system. Unfortunately, the subwoofer is only usable with the DVR-S300 receiver/DVD player.
