Eltax DR-110 Sub-woofer issue

Nowhere in the manual for the DR-110 does it say whether the sub-woofer should be active or passive but, on their website, it says the unit "powers" the 6 speakers. I've connected a SONY passive subwoofer but it doesn't work. Does anybody know if it needs to be active? Thanks

    hi,

    on the rear panel there are 5 speaker terminals - just spring clip type - for the surround spkrs and a seperate subwoofer terminal, labelled "sub out" for an RCA jack.

    Been using an RCA jack from the subwoofer, +ve to centre pin, with -ve to outside of jack. The subwoofer is "switched on" in the menu and volume is set way up but nothing coming out (the subwoofer is working - tested on other system). any ideas?

Can I and how do I hook a subwoofer to my Sony str-de705 receiver


It depends. You can connect an active (self-powered) sub-woofer to the STR-DE705. You can't connect a passive sub-woofer that needs power from the receiver. If the sub-woofer has its own power cord, then it's an active unit. See https://us.en.kb.sony.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/37001 for more information. You'll also need a RCA subwoofer cable. This is like a RCA audio cable but only has one plug on each end. (Using a regular audio cable may risk a short when the extra plugs hit something.) Many subwoofers will come with the audio cable. If you do need one, they are available at most places that sell cables, including Amazon.com .

Here is an example of an active subwoofer: https://us.en.kb.sony.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/37001 . This is the Yamaha YST-SW012.

I hope this helps.

Sub woofer not working, no manual cant find one on internet either


Hi,
I assume that the sub-woofer is "POWERED TYPE" ..otherwise if it is a PASSIVE type you can not use it as sub but regular speaker.....
So,if it has a power plug for 110 VAC it is "powered type" ..Than you need to find out the AUDIO output 2xRCA plugs on the back and connect it to the 1x RCA input of Sub...you need a "Y type RCA cable " to make 2x stereo output into the 1x MONO input RCA jacks for sub..you need volume adjustment once on the sub controls (if it is a Powered )

Take care and if it succeeds please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up
for Helping out the Community :)..if you need more help please contact me ..

Hope this helps!

I have a JBL TLX CSS-SUB1 sub at the back are where you connect the speaker wires to the receiver but i don't know witch wire goes in what? i have no clue


The connection on the receiver would be the sub woofer out. Not a sub woofer out LFE, a sub woofer out with speaker wire connection. From there you plug it in to the top section of the available terminals on the sub you are referring to (speaker level input). One in positive and the other in negative matching what you did on the receiver with correct ends. The speaker connections underneath the top connections is for additional speakers like surrounds to be able to be connected directly to the sub woofer speaker level out for sound. This of course would be for an older receiver connection. I do not think it is possible to convert this connection to an LFE and have it work properly. If the receiver does not have sub woofer speaker connection and only a RCA out then you can try to connect both rear speaker connections from the receiver to the speaker level inputs on the sub and then connect your rear speakers to the speaker level output on the sub to power them. This is an active sub woofer but for some reason they made it connect as if it was passive. I am not sure if this sub is designed for really low frequencies required for movie or if it is better for music.

Cerwin vega passive subwoofer model sw-12b


Passive woofers are hooked up to the output of a sub amp.
Active woofers are hooked up to the sub out of a receiver. They have the amp built in.

How do I hook up a non powered sub woofer on my htr-5630?


You will need an amplifier or 2 channel receiver. Hook the sub out rca jack to the rca inputs on this new amp or receiver and hook the speaker terminals on sub to speaker terminals on same amp or receiver. Your Yamaha receiver doesn't have any power for a passive sub.Just pick up any old fairly high powered receiver for fifty dollars and you're good to go.I use old dolby pro logic receivers as they are a dime a dozen today. Good luck.

Sub remote works with two passive satallite monitors but sub has no sound


If sub has two signal outputs and if the monitors are full range (passive crosover built in), put mixer outputs to the sub and signal outputs of the sub to amps in.If not mixer outputs to th amp and its signal outputs to the sub in.Or you can use main out of the mixer for the monitors and rec out for the sub.Its just few XLR or jack cables extra.Just make sure that the mixer,sub and the amp are on the same power phase otherwise you'll have brrrrrrrrrrr on the speakers
