Hook-Up for Paradagim Subwoofer-SB-100

The manual does not describe the best way to hook this device up. The manual shows a single jack for the subwoofer. The Paradagim Sub has a left and right input with + and - terminals. Any ideas for an optimal solution would be appreciated.

Just use the left input on the sub. The sub frequency components are generally across both channels, the left and right are to allow for easier integration with systems that have no specific sub output, a low pass filter is applied to the audio, left and right get mixed, and then feed to the subs internal amp. I advise for performance to use line level(low level-NOT speaker) inputs wherever possible. If you have any other questions, I am here to help ya. A "FixYa"rating would help my profile. Thanks.

Happy listening

How to hook up a Kenwood subwoofer to a pioneer receiver


It depends on the speaker and receiver inputs/outputs. If The speakers have bare wires, and the receiver has spring clamps, you are in luck! Check out what I mean by spring clamps in the image linked below. If you can give the model number of the receiver and describe the wires coming from the subwoofer, I can help a lot more.

Look around for a subwoofer which has speaker level inputs.
Something like this;

I want to hook two speakers (4ohm each) on rxv-671 on both L/R side. what is the best option to do that either parallel or serial? Also plz describe the method if any.


The best method is - DON'T. When you hook more than one speaker up to a single speaker output, it drops the impedance that the receiver sees and you risk blowing the amp. If you need to hook more than one up, do so through a speaker switch box. It will match the impedance correctly so the amp doesn't get damaged.

Where should I plug in my sub woffer


There should be two jacks on the back that say SUBWOOFER in the "preout" section of the back panel that is directly above the speaker jacks. Either of these jacks should work for your sub hook-up. Also make sure that you set your front speakers to small in the speaker setup menu, otherwise there will be output to the subwoofer jacks.

I am simply trying to hook up the stock sub that came with this product vr 357. I don't see an input on the tuner do I need an amp of some sort or am I missing something


I think you're missing the manual(s).

http://www.retrevo.com/support/Kenwood-VR-357-Receivers-manual/id/480dj197/t/2/
describes how to use a >> powered << subwoofer with the VR-357.

Speakers are OUTPUT devices. As far as the manual goes there is no STOCK subwoofer with this receiver. What's yours and does it have a manual which might answer your question?

Splicing headphone outputs designed for nominal 8-ohm impedance speakers to a 47K-ohm (typical) RCA load is not a good idea but it might work on the Sherwood because this receiver does not automatically silence your other speakers when the headphone jack is installed.

There is NO other volume-controlled output to choose. Try it.

Trying to connect cable box....


You should be able to pick any open audio device unless it says pre-amp only. If your manual shows a connection for a CD player or similar device it should support the cable box.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa
