Check your speakers to make sure that they are the proper Ohmic value, and make sure your grounds are secure.

The unit is dissipating too much heat which is a sign of an impedance mismatch. In other words the full power output is not being delivered to the load (speakers), rather it is being dissipated in the source (amplifier) which as said is a sign of an impedance mismatch.

Thank you,
I hope this helps

I just pick up a used LW 10 Powered sub and 2 channel sherwood receiver.What is the preffered method of hook up up the sub with out a pre sub out?


"Sherwood Receiver" doesn't really tell us much about that end of the scenario.

Look at this picture of the sub amp.

You COULD run the Main speaker output to the large Red/Black speaker inputs, then some more wires Out from the other Red/Black connectors to your Main Speakers. That way your amp volume control will affect both equally.

Tweak the sub volume, crossover and phase to match it up to your mains.

Cerwin vega passive subwoofer model sw-12b


Passive woofers are hooked up to the output of a sub amp.
Active woofers are hooked up to the sub out of a receiver. They have the amp built in.

I HAVE A CERWIN VEGA CLS-15S POWERED SUB AND A PIONEER RECEIVER WITH NO RCA SUB HOOK UP ON BACK. HOW DO YOU HOOK IT UP


flathead30,
This is an old question but if you have not yet figured anything out, hear is a suggestion.

Without buying any other electronics, use your tape output on the receiver and let your sub's built in crossover to filter the highs out of the signal.

I am buying a pioneer vsx-d414 receiver and want to no if it will drive my cerwin vega e-712 speakersv says for receivers rated 8ohms or lower.. , just currious


Yes the Pioneer will drive the Cerwin Vega speakers. The Pioneer requires at least 8 ohm speakers and if the Cerwin Vega speakers are 8 ohms, it won't be ******* the receiver.

The speakers you have are high wattage, so the Pioneer may not be able to get the most out of them, but it should be pretty good.

It is always good to have speakers rated at a higher wattage than the receiver, that way the receiver will not fry the speakers. No matter what the wattage of a speaker, it will not pull more power out of an amplifier than the amplifier is capable of delivering. Some people have a mis-conception that if a speaker is higher rated that it will blow up the amp, this is just not true. Speakers do not pull power from an amp, they only put out as much power as the amp is pushing into them. But you can blow up an amp by driving it too hard for too long of time. They just get too hot and the heat stresses the amp circuit after a while.

I hope this helps.
