Make sure your dvd player is connected to the subwoofer input on the back of the unit, and make sure 5.1 channel is selected on the receiver. Also, try turning up your subwoofer with the controller

I have a active sub woofer (akari bazooka) but the only connections available are the speaker connections. The front of the sub woofer has volume adjustment. How can I connect this sub woofer to my Harman...


hi,
You can't connect the pre out of your AVR to this sub woofer. Do one thing connect the frond left/ right channel speaker "B" out of harman kardon to the sub woofers left right speaker in put. you can connect the speaker out "A" to your normal left right speakers. Remember to switch Speaker "A" and "B" in ON position in your AVR. Also do one thing go to the speaker setup of AVR and switch OFF (slelect NONE) the sub woofer.This will disconnect the sub woofer pre our and the sub frequency will mix with frond left right channels.
ok

I have a sony str de 325 receiver....what sub woofer will go with it and where do you plug it into the receiver?? Thanks


You will need a powered sub, one that has a built in amp. It will also need speaker terminal type inputs. Use the B channel to send signal to the woofer. Since the audio from the B channel is full range, use the crossover on the sub to determine which frequencies you want to hear. I would start at 100Hz and go up and down from there. Use the gain to adjust the volume in relation to the other speakers. The sub volume will be affected by the master volume.

There is not a subwoofer input jack on the back of this subwoofer. There are a set of input (negative and positive) terminals and a set of output (negative positive) terminals like would hook speaker wires...


On the back of the sub woofer you have two sets of binding post / some have spring clip terminals ( red & black ) labeled Speaker In ( sometimes High Level In ) and Speaker out.
Take 2 pairs of speaker cables and connect one end to the speaker out socket of your amplifier ( left & right ) . The other end of the cable should be connected to the sub woofer's Speaker In socket , Red to red and black to black. Now on the Speaker Out socket of the sub woofer connect your existing pair of speakers using another pair of speaker cables. If your sub woofer has a Hi Pass filter built in , you may not hear bass coming from your existing speakers with this kind of connection. Good if you have small satellite speakers.

Alright i had a chance to look over things, this is how you are going to hook up the sub. first we'll be connecting the surround sound unit to the sub woofer.
surround sound unit sub woofer
left front: positive (+) <-----to------------->(+) left speaker level in
negative ( - )<- - -to- - - - - - ->( - ) left speaker level in

right front: positive (+) <-----to------------->(+) right speaker level in
negative ( - )<- - -to- - - - - - >( - ) right speaker level in

now that the surround sound unit is connected to the sub woofer you will need to connect the front surround sound speakers to the sub woofer.
sub woofer front surround sound speaker
left speaker level out (+)<-----to--------> (+) left front speaker
left speaker level out( - ) <- - - to- - - - ->( - ) left front speaker

right speaker level out (+)<-----to--------> (+) right front speaker
right speaker level out( - ) <- - - to- - - ->( - ) right front speaker

Alright now that the wires are all over the place and plugged in
turn everything on and see how it sounds. let me know if everything is working as it should. if you need help with anything else or if something does not seem right please feel free to contact me via e-mail or phone

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.

You need to use an amplified sub. The Yamaha receiver is only sending "Pre-Amp Signal" not amplified audio like the rest of your speakers. If your sub has a crossover built in, connect it's speaker level (wires) to the "B" side of the receiver which will send audio to your sub and it will cross it over internally. Not the best sounding, but it works. Amplified subs range in price from 200 and up. Hope this helps

Connection of a subwoofer to Yamaha ZX-V490


Get a powered sub-woofer that has speaker level inputs, then run your front speaker wires into the sub-woofers speaker level input and then run a set of speaker wires from the sub-woofers speaker wire output to your front speakers. This is a common way to use a sub-woofer with a receiver that doesn't have a sub-woofer output.

Most powered sub-woofers have these connections, just check it out first before you buy one. They look like speaker jacks on the back of the receiver.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi I own a Technics Hi-Fi system (Model SC-EH780) and would like to attach a subwoofer to it. I cannot find the subwoofer unit that is supposed to go with this system. Can you help?


Any powered sub-woofer will work with it. Check the back of the Technics, make sure there is an RCA output labeled "Sub-woofer" or "Woofer" or "Sub". If so, you can get any brand of powered sub woofer and it will work. A powered sub-woofer is one with an amplifier for the sub built into the box and you will need to plug it into an A/C outlet as well. The only exceptions to what will work with this unit is to make sure you are not buying a sub-woofer that is made to only work with the companion unit it is originally sold with. Many Panasonic and JVC sub woofers are like this. Just look for a sub-woofer that is not part of any system. Velodyne makes some really great sub-woofers that would work nice with yours, but they can be a little expensive, but they are very good.

If your Technics has no RCA output for the sub-woofer, you will need to make sure that whatever powered sub-woofer you buy has a speaker level input for it. Most powered sub-woofers have this feature, so that you may just run the front speaker outputs of the receiver into the subwoofer and then the sub-woofer will have a set of speaker outputs right below the speaker inputs so you can still have your front speakers connected to that and not loose anything from your system.

I hope I have explained this in a manner you will understand easy, if not just post whatever questions you may have right on this thread and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

It would also be appreciated if you could rate this solution if you no longer need any help from me. If you do require more help, please wait to rate this until we are finished. That way I do not get an undeserved bad rating when we have not even finished our communications.
By the way, A "Thanks for trying" and "Helpful" rating are really not good, they always end up lowering my overall score.

Home theater system protection kicks out


Nice write-up.

http://www.sherwoodusa.com/pdf/RD-6500(English).pdf

On page 6 of the manual it states you should use a powered subwoofer and the unit provides a sub output on the rear panel for it. The message from the amp kicking out is that you're not going to get away with your workaround.

I would advise you to purchase a nice amplifier (2-channel bridgeable or single channel) for the subwoofer. That way you'd be sending only LFE signals and your receiver has provisions for adjusting its volume relative to the rest of the channels. I use a nice 5-channel Carver for my 3 subs and both Rear Surrounds.

On eBay I see what I would get if I were you - a Carver M-200T (120W x2; 300W bridged). I have one.
