On the back of your pioneer audio/video receiver, you will plug the cable into the subwoofer pre out (back of your receiver) then connect this same cable to your subwoofer.

My mackie swa 1501 when you plug in no power checked the outlet their is power checked power cord good. what can i do


There are many possibilities, the switch, motherboard, electronics etc. If you are a DIY kind of person and you want to try trouble shooting yourself, you need tools. Better still, take it to a service person/ outlet to proper checks.

• Check AC plug and green LED onthe back; make sure outlet

is operational

• Check volume control on subwoofer

• For speaker level wire conections, check (+) on amplifier to (+) on

subwoofer and do the same for (-) to (-)

• Check that RCA line level inputs of the subwoofer are not wired from

speaker level outputs of amplifier


if problem still persist , the Sub may needs further troubleshooting

The wires from Line level converter where to hook them up?


Firstly, and definitely, your "black" is subwoofer line out.

Check your AV receiver if the subwoofer option is activated. I've known some receivers that have the option to disable subwoofers and push all the bass into their front speakers.

Next, you have to check if your subwoofer is on or off? what about the volume of the sub?

If your subwoofer is passive, which means it does not require powering up using the mains, then you will have to get a seperate amplifier to power the sub up.

What kind of cord d i need to hook up the subwoofer to a regular receciver??


That would depend on each of them. Many active (self-powered) subs accept either Line Level or Speaker Level inputs. The manual for YOUR unnamed sub would describe the exact method.

One way or the other speaker wire (lamp cord) or RCA cable would be required.

It keeps turning off eventhough the back switch is turned on


You need to determine if its a malfunction of the sub or just due to a loss of input. And is it always in response to, say, over-enthusiastic use?

From the manual...

TROUBLESHOOTING

If you used the high-level (speaker) inputs and there is no sound from any of the

speakers:

• Check that receiver/amplifier is on and a source is playing.

• Check that powered subwoofer is plugged into an active electrical outlet and is switched on.

• Check all wires and connections between receiver/amplifier and speakers. Make sure all wires

are connected. Make sure none of the speaker wires are frayed, cut or punctured.

• Review proper operation of your receiver/amplifier.

If there is low (or no) bass output:

• Make sure the connections to the left and right "Speaker Inputs" have the correct polarity (+ and -).

• Make sure that the subwoofer is plugged into an active electrical outlet and switched on.

• Adjust the crossover point.

• Flip the Phase Control switch to the opposite position.

• If you are using a Dolby Digital/DTS receiver or processor, make sure that the

subwoofer adjustments on the receiver/processor are set up correctly.

• Slowly turn the Level Control clockwise until you begin to hear the desired amount of bass.

If you used the line-level inputs and there is no sound from the subwoofer:

• Check that receiver/amplifier is on and a source is playing.

• Check that powered subwoofer is plugged into an active electrical outlet and is switched on.

• Check all wires and connections between receiver/amplifier and subwoofer.

Make sure all wires are connected. Make sure none of the wires are frayed, cut or punctured.

• Review proper operation of your receiver/amplifier.

• Slowly turn the Level Control clockwise until you begin to hear the desired amount of bass.

• Make sure that you have configured your receiver/processor so that the subwoofer/LFE output is on.

Connecting a subwoofer to a receiver without subwoofer out jack


Does your receiver have any kind of line level audio output? AUX OUT, LINE OUT or similar? If so, you might be able to send that a subwoofer. Most standalone subwoofers have their own crossover and level controls built in, so you can make adjustments there.

Bought newer Denon reciever does not have speaker wire hookups only subwoofer outlet. will my PV 350 still work


What model Denon? The BA Sub is self-powered so it would accept a Line level Subwoofer feed as well as a speaker level feed (choose one only). Look for a Sub Out RCA jack.

You could look in the manual, which is at retrevo.com for free after you register.

Connect powered subwoofer


  • If your receiver has a dedicated subwoofer line level output, we recommend connecting your subwoofer to this jack. Most receivers will have just one (mono) subwoofer output, while quite a few subs require two inputs. You can use an RCA "Y" adapter cord , which is a cable with one female RCA jack at one end, and two male RCA plugs at the other. Some receivers require menu settings (such as "sub-on" or "front speakers-small") that must be made before the sub output will be active.
