    Hey Smeags,



    Thanks for the fast response. To be clear, are you saying that I can hook the woofer into my front speaker input on the receiver and it will perform the same? Thanks again

You coudl use a single rca to a left and right rca cable. However most woofers will have a lfe single rca input on the woofer that you connect to a single rca on the receiver.

Are you sure you are not confusing the +/- on the woofer that is used to connect your speakers? ie. my woofer has the +/- so i can connect to my front speakers and my receiver to filter the low frequency sounds via the woofer.

hope this helps

    No no....

    you have two options...connect a single rca cable from the woofer the lfe socket to the lfe input of the receiver.

    the second option is to connect the front speaker to the +/- of the woofer then the woofer to the receiver...via the front speakers +/- area. However if you do this you will not get 5.1 sound howeever you will allow thet woofer to play the low frequency sound and the speaker to play the mid to high frequency sounds.

    good luck

Can i put an extra sub woofer on my lg da3525 via the woofer out socket and what plug do i require to do this


Hi,

How to Connect 2 Subwoofers to One Receiver

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


Instructions


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.


Have a nice day...

Where to connect subwoofer


The subwoofer has its own RCA output on the back of the receiver and needs to be plugged by RCA cable from the receiver to the sub. This would be for an "active subwoofer" with its own amplifier and crossover that needs to be plugged into the wall.

How do i hook up sub from main unit.from main unit only has one plug that says sub in.and my sub has two plugs that say L mono and R in. like R.C.A connects.please help


Get a cable that splits a single rca cable into two. It has a female end and two male ends. That way you can feed both inputs from the single sub output on the receiver.

What kind of wire do I need to connect the subwoofer to the av-d58? The subwoofer is the same that came with the receiver but I have somehow misplaced the connection wire.


Without knowing more about the subwoofer (powered, passive, what kind(s) of input it takes, I have to take a wild guess. Most powered subwoofers use the old standard RCA cable. I there are two jacks on the sub for Left and Right input you just get an adapter to make the cable plug into two jacks.

HTR-5740 Subwoofer Hooking Up Issue


You can use a hi-level to low-level adapter. Just remember, the Yamaha does not send power (wattage) to the sub, just signal. You need to use a subwoofer that has an amplifier either externally or built in.

No Soound on Subwoofer from Yamaha RX-V363


I have the same setup. Are you going out of the subwoofer output of the reciever? (it's purple.) then into the LFE jack of the subwoofer (also purple.) That's the only connection you need besides power. If you have those right, try using your cable for something else to make sure the cable is good. Is the indicator of the subwoofer green? Mine comes on with the reciever. Good luck!

Connecting Powered Subwoofer to a Receiver


you will need a line-level converter to use this subwoofer- it is a rectangular-shaped box with wires coming out on one end and red-and-white RCA plugs one the other. The end with the wires coming out will hook to the receiver, and the other end will need to plug into the sub.

Ilo ca 3000v cd player


The RCA connections on the back of the Ilo CA3000V are exclusively for XM radio input, and do not send a 'low level' signal required for your amplifier to operate. You will need to have a 'high level' input on your amplifier to get a signal from the Ilo, this will be driven off the speaker wires themselves.
