Hi jdwoomer

BEST WAY
Your amp has PreOut and Main In RCA connectors on the rear, you could make up an adaptor cable (or buy one) to split the post vol control signal at this point, and then use line level from here to drive the sub.

OR

Most powered subs have a speaker "high level" input, where the sub "sniffs" off signal from your speaker output. When setup like this the speakers and amp connect to the back of the Sub.

Either way, you can do it... Marantz were making nice gear back then... a collectable these days :) Any questions, I am here to help.

Which terminals should I use to hook up my M-CR502 receiver to a BX10 sub woofer


If the BX10 is a powered sub. Then there should be a subwoofer out socket on the Receiver. If it doesn't have one it might not be compatible with a powered sub. Otherwise follow the instructions for the sub. Some none powered subs simply connect to the left and right speaker terminals.

Hi can I hook up my marantz mm500u amp to my pioneer 305 vsx audio reciever


I presume you just want to slave the Marantz to play whatever the Pioneer is playing.

Run a pair of RCA cables from either the Pioneer Tape Monitor REC or the VCR/Tape 1 Out jacks to the desired Marantz Input jacks. DON'T activate the corresponding switch on the Pioneer.

Only the basic Leftand Right channel programming that the Pioneer plays will be available at the Marantz. You will NOT have centralized volume control at the Pioneer.

The top link is for a manual for your model. The second link is a Fixya link concerning "no power". I'm not sure why you are looking for fuse but, have to assume it's a no power issue.

Vintage Stereo Connection ???


Hi spanky

Where to start :) I am excited thinking about them :p You got 2 totally cool pieces of classic vintage gear there in the C2 and the Marantz. I have a C2 preamp myself (gathering dust but wont sell it cos its excellent) and the marantz would be totally cool to have(but then I am a little biased towards 70's vintage marantz). They ruled the roost in HiFi amps throughout that decade.

Because they are both integrated amps, you could use them as standalone systems with a pair of speakers, and just plug your favourite gear into them. If you just wanted to run up a nice sounding HiFi, I would sell the kenwood gear and just keep the Marantz. The Kenwood kr1100 has the edge in power, so if it is grunt you are looking for use that. Because vintage sound is all about stereo, you only really need an integrated amp to get great results.

the specs are
# Kenwood Model Eleven G (KR-11000G) Receiver
120W per channel min RMS, both channels driven, at 8 ohms from 20 to 20.000 Hz with no more than 0.03% total harmonic distortion.
Dynamic power output 440W at 4 ohms
Power bandwidth 5 Hz to 70.000 HZ
Frequency response 5 Hz to 100.000 HZ -1.5dB
Signal to noise ratio 115dB

The marantz is a little lower in power at 75rms a channel, but will have the sonic edge in vintage sound over the kr1100. Look them up on ebay and you will find that they do have some value to collectors and people seeking nice tone. There is an 1152 for sale here for AU$900

Best bet is to fire up the 2 integrated amps,and see how they are going. Run them for several hours to be sure there is no strange noises and crackles. Then decide if you want power or finesse.

You could also run both amps from the C2 preamp by connecting to the Amp in connections to the rear of the integrated amps.

happy to talk to you more about it, hit me with a Fixya if my advice was helpful to you. I would keep the marantz, use that and sell the rest and buy some nice speakers:)
