No jack =no sub audio signal so you would have to get some kind of summing filter. this would sum (mix) the two signals together and extract the sub audio from both channels in order to drive the powered sub woofer you have. could be expensive dont know.

How can i hook-up a 901 series vi equalizer to a str-de897?


I own 901's(since new) with the active equalizer powered with a non-Sony surround sound receiver.

Basically, you use the MD/Tape in/out jacks to route the signal to the Bose active equalizer. Switch the Tape Monitor switch if no sound is heard.

Here are some references.
https://docs.sony.com/release/STRDE897.pdf http://products.bose.com/pdf/customer_service/owners/901_guide.pdf

Connect equalizer cables (4 total) to the MD/TAPE section of your receiver. OUT from the receiver to the equalizer IN and Out from the equalizer to IN on the receiver.

One issue with the equalizer running through the MD/Tape jacks is that it may affect any other speakers hooked up to your system.

Psw111 hook up to vsx-522 subwoofer


Just use one of those jacks. Then turn the frequency select dial all the way up. This will work just as well.

My celestion s20 subwoofer won't play if i hook it up to sub out on receiver.but will play if i run a regular speaker wire to it. I know sub out is working on receiver.


Tell your source (receiver???) that it has a sub and set it up to feed LFE out of that RCA jack.

Prove your sub pre-out works. Or send something like FM on Tape Out to the sub and see how that works out.

How did you hook a speaker wire to this model of powered sub? What was on the other end of that speaker wire? It's not designed for speaker level input.

How do I hook it up to my Surround sound reciever?


Hooking up a subwoofer is dependent upon what hookups are availble on the receiver and subwoofer. Does your receiver have a specific subwoofer output? If so, is it set of speaker-wire terminals, or is it an RCA jack? The Wharfedale can accomodate either one of these as an input. There are four speaker posts on the back of the subwoofer, and there is a single RCA jack input.

Can't get my Accurian subwoofer to work


Sounds like you have everything hooked up properly. Make sure the outlet is providing AC power to the sub. Check the power switch on the sub.

If it is not working still; bring it back and swap it for another one before you warranty runs out.

No sound comimg out


In order to get sound from your sub you need three things: power, a cable to get the audio signal to the sub, and a signal from the audio source hooked to the other end of that cable.

You have power. Tell me about your cable(s) and signal. Are you running the speaker wire directly to the sub and using a built in crossover, then from the sub to your speakers? Or does your receiver have a dedicated subwoofer jack, and if it does, is your receiver producing output on that jack?

Connect powered subwoofer


  • If your receiver has a dedicated subwoofer line level output, we recommend connecting your subwoofer to this jack. Most receivers will have just one (mono) subwoofer output, while quite a few subs require two inputs. You can use an RCA "Y" adapter cord , which is a cable with one female RCA jack at one end, and two male RCA plugs at the other. Some receivers require menu settings (such as "sub-on" or "front speakers-small") that must be made before the sub output will be active.
