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.

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.

Need to hook up to keenwood powered subwolfer 1050sw and im a girl and dont know how


The receiver has a subwoofer out jack on the back. The powered sub has a LF input jack on the back. Connect the two with an audio cable that has 'RCA' plugs on both ends.

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.

The powered subwoofer should be connected to the black subwoofer output near the bottom of the receiver in just about the center. A subwoofer uses line level signals and has its own amplifier, Good chance that you wiped out a channel. Put the wiring back the way it was, and IF the channel was not directly connected to the speaker terminals, MAYBE, JUST MAYBE it will still work.
Chances are slim...

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.

    Pioneer VSX-505S Subwoofer Installation


    That type of subwoofer is not used with this receiver. This receiver actually outputs no power for a subwoofer, therefore only needs a plain ol' rca signal wire. This is due to the fact that you need a powered sub... one that you plug in to the wall and it has its own built in amp. you simply run an rca from yyour 505s to that sub.

    Even if your JVC doesn't have outputs for a subwoofer you can hook it up with the a speaker wire to RCA converter. You just spice your rear speaker wires to this device then connect RCA's to your amp. I've used them before... works great. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Speaker-to-RCA-Line-Level-Converter-Adjustable-High-Low_W0QQitemZ130143832174QQihZ003QQcategoryZ38636QQcmdZViewItem
