Typically pre-amps do not have a relay. Any muting that is done is done using transistors.

I would like to connect my Philips subwoofer to my Pioneer multi channel receiver, but the subwoofer's input has only a 15 pin serial port connection. I need an inexpensive and easy solution?


Unfortunately, most subwoofers , like the one you're describing, need a separate amplifier. I don't know the model number of what you're working with but most Phlips subwoofers with that connection need an amp. Now, if you have the rest of the system that was originally with the sub then you can scavenge it's amp. But that's tricky if you don't know what you're looking at. Craigslist has tons of "powered" subwoofers that don't require a separate amp and u can therefore use your Sub Preout from the HT receiver.

Have a Harmon/Kardon AVR 20. The right channel produces an extremely weak signal when playing music through any input. (Yet, once I hit the "test" button, the sound hits each speaker equally). Help!


It sound like it could be the pre-amp that is playing up. The picture you posted shows that the pre-amp can be listened to separately. All you need to do is pull the two black jumpers out. And connect a separate power amp to the "pre out" sockets. Leaving the other two not connected. If the weakness is present you will know it's in the pre-amp and not the power amp stage of your amp.

Preout section cannot ingage


If you are using a pre out to a sub woofer, you need to make sure that the sub has it's own power amp or it will not work. You also need to go into the user menu and tell the amp that you are using a powered sub. Otherwise it will not turn on the pre amp output

Hook up powered bass speaker to amp


On the rear panel, the one with all the connections, you have one labeled PRE OUT SUB WOOFER with a purple connector it's located in the lower central region of the panel. That is where you connect your POWERED bass speaker (aka subwoofer) as it only has signal output and no power.

Can i connect a seperate power amplifier to my onkyo tx sr608? I have a "pre-out" for my subwoofer hookup, can I use that to go into my amp? I want to power my front main speakers with the more...


Nope, you would need specific pre-outs for external amps for the front channels. That is what the sub pre-out is and a powered sub IS an external amp.

How much bigger an amp were you considering? 100 watts is pretty good and to make an appreciable (audible difference) you might have to double it.

OVERLOAD


First of all the KEF is a powered sub which means that it wants a line level signal NOT a speaker level. Send the signal from a tape output or pre-amp output to the sub input. The overload is because the impedence load for the speaker output is too low and looks like a short to the amp. Continued attempts to connect the system as described will result in damage to the output section of the amp.

Please let me know if you need more info.

Subwoofer pre-out wires


Sorry for the stupid question but is your subwoofer a powered sub? The subwoofer out is just a preamped signal that drives a powered subwoofer. Let me know then we can go from there.

Rotel PReamp, Can I directly Connect my powered speakers to the output


Hi,

Based on your post, the pre-amp is doing its job. What might be the mismatch would be the powered speaker system plugged into the output of the Rotel. Depending on what the "powered speaker system" is, it might be that it is a low impedance such as those used in computers whereas the Rotel requires high impedance to be connected to its output. What could be tried is to connect a regular amp or receiver to the Rotel.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
