Yes, that type of connector is often used for a VGA signal for a computer monitor. But in this case it is an all-in-one connector Yamaha used in order to simplify the hookup of this home theatre system. Unfortunately, the subwoofer is only usable with the DVR-S300 receiver/DVD player.

To use this sub you will need to have a reciever that supports a "system connector" cable such as the Yamaha DVD Player\reciever model# DVR-C310.

How do i make this woofer work with my polroid tv


OK, it looks from what I can tell you need a 1/4" stereo plug for the input to your speaker system. The output from the TV is either RCA jacks or maybe a 1/8" sub mini stereo jack. You can likely go to Radio Shack or an audio store and purchase a cable that has the 1/4" stereo plug on one end and a 1/8" sub mini stereo plug on the other. That cable would mute the TV internal speaker or if you do not want to mute the TV speakers you can get a cable with the 1/4" stereo plug on one end and the L and R audio, RCA (phono) plugs on the other. That would give you both. RCA plug and 1/4" plugs are pretty easy to install if can not find the correct cables. Good Luck. The Yamaha unit looks to be self powered so impedance matching or load on the TV audio amps should not be a problem.

I have a yamaha nx sw150 subwoofer that i want to connect to a pioneer receiver vsx 1020 that has no system connector that the original yamaha receiver had,is it possible to connect the subwwofer to this...


Parts from all-in-one packages like this aren't inended to be pieced out to other applications. Proprietary connections are a huge clue and disincentive.

A look at other Fixya queries gives this answer:

http://www.fixya.com/support/t4959365-yamaha_sub_woofer_model_nx_sw150

"I have this sub. The system connector jack needs a 12V DC signal to turn on. If you don't have a suitable Yamaha receiver with this connection, use any 12 V DC adapter with a 1/8 in mono plug (the tip should be positive)."

I imagine the subwoofer could be opened up and whatever circuitry is enabled by the Control signal could simply be jumpered "true" so it is always ON. That would mean the amp would be drawing power at all times, though.

Just got two AR 312 HO speakers from my brother. I have a Yamaha HTR 6250. The speakers have (2) sets of cable hook up. One I assume is for built in sub woofers? Do I hook one normal and one to the sub...


do not use those speakers with that amp, those are 4 ohm speakers, which could damage your 8 ohm yamaha amp. you will have to get a 4 ohm capable amp to run the highs, and another 4 ohm amp to run the subs.

car amplifiers are currently 4 ohm, or even 2/1 ohm stable, but few, if any modern receivers can run at anything lower than 8 ohms without a danger of overheating. you may have to get a vintage amp(s), like a 1970's marantz receiver, or a 1980's to early 1990's kenwood power amp, because 4 ohm home amps are pretty scarce nowadays.

whatever amp(s)( you get, verify that they are DEFINITELY 4 ohm stable.

Best hook- up Polk psw10 sub woofer to yamaha rx-v663 receiver


You will not need to y connect your subwoofer, if you have only one RCA sub out on your receiver the other end of the RCA connector cable goes into the left input on most powered subs, there is no loss of signal, the option exist as some receiver do sport a double RCA sub out.

Yamaha nx sw300


Ditto, i've got all 5 speakers without the Subwoofer. The subwoofer hasn't worked from day one, but I delayed replacing the unit for too long and don't have the warranty, I looked at all soldered connections and none of them have come un-soldered and all connectors are properly connected, can't think of anything but broken component that would cause it from here, nor can I think of a quick fix
