I want to connect my Marantz 1030 amp to a yamaha YST-SW012

I want to connect my Marantz 1030 amp to a yamaha powered subwoofer model YST-SW012, but the sub only accepts a single rca input from receiver ''subwoofer output'' - which my marantz does not have. how can I do this?

    the sub only has ONE INPUT - an rca plug. the amp puts out left and right speaker - NO Subwoofer output. Can I somehow combine from the amp's left/right channels into one wire that would plug into the sub? Would this work? Entire frequency range would be input to the sub. The subwoofer's input diagram is shown here: http://img.auctiva.com/imgdata/7/1/8/6/5...

Use the left input on the sub. It acts as the main input. Hope this helps

Can I and how do I hook a subwoofer to my Sony str-de705 receiver


It depends. You can connect an active (self-powered) sub-woofer to the STR-DE705. You can't connect a passive sub-woofer that needs power from the receiver. If the sub-woofer has its own power cord, then it's an active unit. See https://us.en.kb.sony.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/37001 for more information. You'll also need a RCA subwoofer cable. This is like a RCA audio cable but only has one plug on each end. (Using a regular audio cable may risk a short when the extra plugs hit something.) Many subwoofers will come with the audio cable. If you do need one, they are available at most places that sell cables, including Amazon.com .

Here is an example of an active subwoofer: https://us.en.kb.sony.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/37001 . This is the Yamaha YST-SW012.

I hope this helps.

How do i make this woofer work with my polroid tv


OK, it looks from what I can tell you need a 1/4" stereo plug for the input to your speaker system. The output from the TV is either RCA jacks or maybe a 1/8" sub mini stereo jack. You can likely go to Radio Shack or an audio store and purchase a cable that has the 1/4" stereo plug on one end and a 1/8" sub mini stereo plug on the other. That cable would mute the TV internal speaker or if you do not want to mute the TV speakers you can get a cable with the 1/4" stereo plug on one end and the L and R audio, RCA (phono) plugs on the other. That would give you both. RCA plug and 1/4" plugs are pretty easy to install if can not find the correct cables. Good Luck. The Yamaha unit looks to be self powered so impedance matching or load on the TV audio amps should not be a problem.

How do I connect the YST-SW45 sub to a different system


It's a standard non-proprietary standalone self-powered sub that accepts any input one could want. Your unnamed electronics will be the determining factor. Manuals spell it all out.

I have a yamaha yst sw320 subwoofer connected to a yamaha dsp-a595a amp. I recently disconnected my equipment and when i reconnected it im getting a feedback hum/noise through the sub. I've tried...


Subs don't go to a variety of connections on the amp. Let's stop guessing and stick with the prescribed one.

Register and download the manuals for free at retrevo.com

http://www.retrevo.com/support/Yamaha-YST-SW320-Subwoofers-manual/id/320bh340/t/2/

See page E1 regarding placement and safety.

http://www.retrevo.com/support/Yamaha-DSP-A595-Amps-manual/id/319ag821/t/2/

Page 44 - read about "humming".

If you have hum on the sub, is it there with and/or without the input cable attached?

Disconnect the input(s) and see if it hums in the absence of an audio source. A bad audio cable shield or unwisely-routed audio cables will allow entrance of unwanted signals from external power sources, magnetic fields, even dimmer-controlled track lights. Sometimes, simply reversing the orientation of the ac power plug can eliminate humming.

NO RESPONSE FROM YAMAHA YST-SW305/205


Hi Ron,

It sounds like the sub is not auto turning on, or has no audio output, and or the sub driver itself has failed. Do you have a multimeter, and we can diagnose the unit? :)
