Which rca output should I use to connect to my amp/sub?

Posted by on

  • sallison18 Feb 06, 2010

    My receiver is mounted so I can't see the markings, and in order to take it out I need to remove my entire front panel in my truck. I had it working at one point, but removed it and now cannot get it configured right. There is one "rear output" unit, and two other rca connections. I'm not sure if one is input and the other is output, or if they are both output. But regardless, I can't get any sound out of my rear speaker through any of them.

Alpine CDE 141 will not output to sub


Your description is not very clear but my guess is that the output from the RCA connector on the head unit (receiver) is low level and intended to be connected to an amplifier input. Apparently the 3.5 mm "jack" (plug) connects something to the RCA input of the amp and that works.

How do i connect subwoofer (canton movie 125 mx) to amplifier(onkyo txnr609)? there is one subwoofer output on the amplifier with either L & R(mono) high level input or L & R(mono) low level input...


Connect front the sub out (single) on the amp to one of the rca inputs on the sub, This will work reasonably well but to make the most from the sub buy a 2 rca to 1 rca cable and use it to connect both rca inputs on the sub to the single output on the amp

Im not sure which plugs I should plug my RCA cables that come from my amp to the reciever. I dont know if its the "back RCA output" or the "Front RCA output" or the "subwoofer...


First of all get yourself a Y-LINK cable. (single male RCA on one side/ double female RCA on the other side) Connect the Y-LINK to your head unit sub woofer output with the stereo RCA that leads to the sub woofer amplifier. Now you are connected to the correct output. I do not know what head unit you had connected before to base your comparison, however there is a output voltage difference from one head unit to another, (1.2V, 2V, 2.5V, 4V, 5V) and that is what determines where the gain on the amplifier should be set to. Always match the headunit output voltage with the amplifier gain control to be the same. It is not uncommon for some entry level units to have a single sub woofer output. dreamsystems

Hi i have just bought a alpine dvd headunit the 105r and it only has 1 phono sub output and not the left and right phono output how do i connect my amp to this


it has 3 pairs of rca outputs, one pair for the front, one for the rear, and another for the subwoofer. the other sub preamp output is not needed to run to your amplifier.

For better sound quality, buy an RCA Y splitter cable (single male connection to double female connections), and run your regular pair of rca cables to the amp.

How to hook up my rem amp wire to this player it does not have


If by saying amp outputs you are refering to the RCA jacks on back of the head unit (Left and Right RCA jacks usually labeled FRONT, REAR, SUB, etc...) then you do have options even if your head unit doesn't provide a SUB channel.  These RCA jacks/amp outputs carry the signal (music or whatever) at a lower voltage (and is typically more like DC voltage as there is a ground reference which is 0 volts and signal rides on the positive voltage), providing a cleaner signal to the amp which does all the work.  The wires behind the amp that you connect directly to the speakers is typically amplified by the head unit itself and is a much higher voltage level and varies from negative to positive ( AC voltage.).

You could use the other channels (FRONT or REAR) if available, (a specific SUB amp output cuts all the higher frequencies out, passing just the lower subwofer frequencies inside the head unit).

if you want to strive for a more efficient use of your sub, use a low-pass/SUBwoffer filter (a crossover) in between the Head unit and amp, thus providing the amp with subwoffer signal, (or if for some odd reason you have SPEAKER level sub connections you can use a line output converter which will let you run RCA to the amp.)

Hope this helps u understand why I couldn't just say get a new stereo nor could I just say use splitters on available amp outs.

How to connect unpowered subwoofer to receiver with RCA sub out?


In order for this to work, you will need an external amplifier. Your receiver is set up to use a "powered" sub. With only speaker connections on the sub, it is a "passive" sub requiring a separate amp.

Sony cdex-m630 connections with an amp


You can use either set of RCA outputs for the amplifier that you want to. Only difference in either of them is front, rear and sub outputs. If you are only powering a sub amp, then use the sub outputs, otherwise, the other two will work fine. You can still use the outputs from the radio itself to power four other speakers while using the RCA outputs.

About technice sa-dx930


The one plug on the back of the receiver is an rca-type plug and is designed to be connected to a powered sub, which would also have an rca-type input. Even if you connected it, this output carries a line level signal and is not powerful enough to drive a speaker. If your sub has 2 connectors (same as a normal speaker) then you have an unpowered or passive subwoofer. You would either need a powered sub, or to use an external amplifier of some sort...then the sub output from your current receiver would go into the external amp...and the amp connected to the passive sub.
Hope this helps.
