    I also need the 15 pin cable; BUT I was told it was a proprietary part and the only cable that would work was the one that comes w/the system from Philips! Problem is, this cable is no longer manufactured, so none of Philips suppliers have any in stock! Was yours a regular 15 pin male-to-male VGA, and did it work, sunray17? Thanks!

    Actually the cable that connects the subwoofer to the DVD is a non-VGA 15 pin cable. They are very difficult to find. A 15 pin VGA cable will not work. The VGA cable has one pin inactive, whereas the non-VGA has all 15 active. I'm still looking for a non-VGA 15 pin cable.

How do i conect supwofer out put ?


You need a mono RCA subwoofer cable (http://www.amazon.com/Belkin-PureAV-Subwoofer-Audio-Cable/dp/B0001XGR1C/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1425294043&sr=8-5&keywords=Subwoofer+cable.

Down where the speakers hook up to the rear of the unit there is a subwoofer output RCA connection. Plug RCA cable in there and run it to the Input of the powered subwoofer.

How do I hook up my lifestyle 20 . I bought it second hand and my speakers have wires.


Hi Mark,

I'm assuming you have the original speaker cables that came with the system (it looks like the connectors on the small speaker side are not standard connectors). If that is the case, the two smaller speakers should connect to the Left and Right 'Output to Cube Speakers' plugs on the larger subwoofer box. A 3rd cable from that subwoofer box should connect from the "audio input" connector on that box to the to the "Speaker zone 1" plug on the main unit.

Plug both the main unit and the subwoofer into power outlets, turn them both on and you should be all set. If you click on the link below, pages 7 - 8 of the owner's guide have a good description and pictures of this configuration. The rest of that guide may come in handy too.

Can i put an extra sub woofer on my lg da3525 via the woofer out socket and what plug do i require to do this


Hi,

How to Connect 2 Subwoofers to One Receiver

Subwoofers produce the deep bass sounds that give home theater the realism of being at the movies. A good subwoofer can rattle the walls during action sequences, while adding depth to recorded music and a heightened sense of feeling in the midst of a televised sporting event. Because most home theater receivers are equipped with a single subwoofer jack, connecting a second subwoofer requires a simple audio adapter available at electronics stores. Self-powered subwoofers have their own built-in amplifiers to drive the bass speakers, so they cannot drain power on the main receiver in a system and thus pose no danger to the equipment, even when an extra subwoofer is connected.

Things You'll Need:

Home theater receiver
Y-adapter with RCA jacks on two ends and an RCA plug on the other, available at electronics stores.
2 RCA subwoofer cables
2 subwoofers


Instructions


Plug the Y-adapter into the home theater receiver's "Subwoofer OUT" jack.


Connect an RCA subwoofer cable to each jack on the Y adapter and route the cables to the subwoofers in the room. Because subwoofers deliver an omnidirectional sound, the boxes can be placed anywhere they won't get in the way, but within reach of an electrical outlet..


Plug an RCA cable into the "Sub IN" jack on the back of each subwoofer.


Connect the subwoofers to wall outlets and turn on each unit by pressing the power button, typically located on the back panel.


Adjust the volume and crossover settings on each subwoofer as desired. The crossover adjustment knob tells the subwppfer which low-end frequencies to reproduce from the audio signal, such as a movie on DVD. All frequencies higher than the crossover setting will be transferred to the other speakers connected to the receiver.



Tips & Warnings

Use subwoofers that are closely matched in power, as rated in watts, when using two subwoofers in a home theater setup.

Disconnect the subwoofers from the power supply while making the audio connections.


Have a nice day...

I have an rt2870 and am just wondering where i connect the yellow subwoofer cord to the TV at, and i set my tv setting for the surround sound


You shouldn't connect the subwoofer to the TV. Just connect the Right and Left audio cables (red and white RCA plugs) to the TV audio out and then the other side goes receiver's audio in. If you are using the subwoofer that came with the unit, connect it to the sub port (purple and grey or black striped). The red and black striped cable goes to the subwoofer control.

If you are using another active subwoofer, connect it to the RCA jack labeled Subwoofer Audio OUT.

If you have a 3-plug RCA cable that is a composite video cable. The yellow plug carries the video, the red and white carry the audio signal. This cable is most often used for connecting older VCRs and game systems to a TV (or newer devices to an older TV). Thus leave the yellow jack dangling if using it for an audio cable.

Set your TV to use the external audio speakers and the receiver will take care of the signal to the subwoofer. (You only would connect the speakers individually for a computer sound system.)

I hope this helps.

Sound from 3 channels only


Sometimes what happens is that people r just confused with all wirings.Considering that you have connected the speakers correctly...Now according to u the center speaker is not working
  1. If u have a jack attached at the end of the speakers then try connecting the center speaker jack into the Right front/Right Rear/Left Rear socket at the back of the reciever.Just to make sure that your speakers r fine.
  2. Secondly play an audio cd first,sumtimes a video DVD not being 5.1 channel one confuses a lot.
  3. Assuming that you have checked the center speaker,like I asked u too,Connect it into its proper socket or better connect all the speakers.
  4. Now with the remote you check the predefined equalizer in it n keep changing that [pop,rock,jazz etc] or you might even want it to change it to 5.1 from a 3channel or 2channel Stereo.Everytime you change it listen to every speaker.
  5. Also check that you have increased all the speakers volume one-by-one.
  6. Disconnect any headphones attached.
  7. Switch on the selected source or select another source.
For further details u can check the manual.
The VGA cable of the monitor will work fine.

Don't worry about sending the TV audio to the Panasonic. Just send a digital audio signal from the cable box to the Panasonic.

DVD - Panasonic connected via HDMI
TV - Panasonic connected via HDI
cable connected to cable box and TV. But you will not really be using the cable connection to the TV (TV Tuner) since you will want HD feed from cable box through HDMI input on TV.

You aren't concerned about feeding the TV speakers because your audio will always come from the home theatre.

Note that some components don't feed audio through HDMI, in which case you will need to use optical digital audio.

You cannot wire this system separately, since it is very difficult to separate the power cables from the others which carry the audio parts.if in any case , lets suppose, you could wire the dvd player separetely, you will have no audio since all the audio frequencies are transfered in this cable to the sub woofer and from there to the satellite speakers.
It would be useless to wire it even if we could as there would never be any audio, only video, no matter what disc you use as the only way the audio is comming is throught this system cable to the subwoofer. Actually its the worst idea to implement in a home cinema system, but well, this is old panasonic.. :)
