Subwoofers produce the deep bass sounds that give home theater the realism of being at the movies. A good subwoofer can rattle the walls during action sequences, while adding depth to recorded music and a heightened sense of feeling in the midst of a televised sporting event. Because most home theater receivers are equipped with a single subwoofer jack, connecting a second subwoofer requires a simple audio adapter available at electronics stores. Self-powered subwoofers have their own built-in amplifiers to drive the bass speakers, so they cannot drain power on the main receiver in a system and thus pose no danger to the equipment, even when an extra subwoofer is connected.
Things You'll Need:
Home theater receiver Y-adapter with RCA jacks on two ends and an RCA plug on the other, available at electronics stores. 2 RCA subwoofer cables 2 subwoofers
Plug the Y-adapter into the home theater receiver's "Subwoofer OUT" jack.
Connect an RCA subwoofer cable to each jack on the Y adapter and route the cables to the subwoofers in the room. Because subwoofers deliver an omnidirectional sound, the boxes can be placed anywhere they won't get in the way, but within reach of an electrical outlet..
Plug an RCA cable into the "Sub IN" jack on the back of each subwoofer.
Connect the subwoofers to wall outlets and turn on each unit by pressing the power button, typically located on the back panel.
Adjust the volume and crossover settings on each subwoofer as desired. The crossover adjustment knob tells the subwppfer which low-end frequencies to reproduce from the audio signal, such as a movie on DVD. All frequencies higher than the crossover setting will be transferred to the other speakers connected to the receiver.
Tips & Warnings
Use subwoofers that are closely matched in power, as rated in watts, when using two subwoofers in a home theater setup.
Disconnect the subwoofers from the power supply while making the audio connections.
Hello, this Luke. Hooking the 508 to any TV is just like hooking a DVD to TV. Just used whichever cable available to you. e.g. RCA, coax. But if you want to have Satellite programming to that receiver, that would be a different thing. You will have to call Dish to add that receiver to your account with them. They will verify that receiver if it is registered to an account with debt and add it to your account if it is clear. They might need to send an installer to hook it up. Let me know if this help.
The way computer speakers are hooked up, is you take your 1/4" main jack from the power speaker, and plug it in to your computer's adio out jack. Then you have to hook up the other speaker's 1/4" plug to a jack in the back of the power speaker (by power speaker, I mean the speaker that has the volume adjustment and on/off switch). Plug the power speaker's power supply in to the wall outlet, turn it on, adj the volume, and you should be in business. If the other speaker isn't working, it might have a pinched speaker wire or another problem may exist, but usually it's either a pinched wire or incorrect hookup.
Oh, one more thing to check, make sure you hook the other speaker to the right jack on the power speaker. There are two jacks on the power speaker, and one is for the left or right speaker only. Good luck, and hope this helps.
Should be just as simple as plugging in the RCA jacks from the output of the VCR to the input of the DVD recorder. Make sure you pass the first grade color scheme and match the colors up! Yellow to yellow....red to red.....white to white...you get the idea.
