Hat would require either a receiver that has its own internal subwoofer amplifier channel or you would have to get an external amplifier for the sub.

Either way, you would need to refer to the manuals for every piece in the pie for specifics.

In general you'll also need to define the sub to the receiver, manage the bass and set relative speaker levels. See the manual(s).

I have a subwoofer and speakers from a surround sound system but the dvd part has blown up can i use the subwoofer and speakers with another unit


sure u can. but depends either your system is active or passive. active means the speakers (or sub) driven by built-in amplifier, so the dvd delivers a low signal to the speakers amp and they amplify the sound for the speakers. passive means the amplifier is built into the dvd and delivers the amplified sound signal to the speakers thru speaker cable. if you tell me model number and brand i can find out what type they are.

Subwoofer amplifier


Here's how I'd do it... connect the subwoofer pre-out to one of the unused analog inputs (CD or CD-R perhaps?). Turn on Zone 2 by pressing the MULTI-ZONE ON/OFF button. The MULTI-ZONE indicator will light.

Press CONTROL. (Zone 2 should display) Use the INPUT SELECTOR dial to select the source for the zone you have selected. In my example, CD or CD-R.

Of course, you'll need the sub hooked up to the Surround back speaker terminals.

Here's a link to the manual online:
Pioneer VSX-1018 Manual

Things to keep in mind:
The Surround Back setting must be set to ZONE 2. See page 41 of the manual.
The volume level going to the sub will probably need some tweaking. Check out page 7 to see how to manually adjust volume levels, or get it close by adjusting the Master Volume while in Zone 2 control.

I'm not sure if the auto setup function (with the included microphone) will work properly with this setup. And, of course, this is not a "suggested" setup by Pioneer, so please use caution when hooking everything up.

Good luck!

The 'Subwoofer' output on your receiver is used to connect to a powered subwoofer with a built in amplifier. Your KLH speakers use what is called a 'passive' subwoofer, it gets its power from the receiver and then passes the higher frequencies to the left and right front speakers after taking out the low frequencies for the subwoofer. A speaker system with a passive subwoofer is good for casual listening, but a powered subwoofer is required for really hearing low frequencies and rumble in movies. The KLH speakers you have were highly rated in their time for their price. The four satellite speakers and center channel speaker have very good sound compared to the little 'midget' surround sound speakers most people buy today.

Here's how you hook them up:

- The left and right front channels from your receiver terminals should go to the terminals on the subwoofer marked 'From Amplifier'
- Your left and right front speakers are then connected to the subwoofer terminals marked 'To Speakers', they do not connect directly to your receiver.
- Your center speaker is connected to your receiver terminals marked 'Center'
- Your rear speakers are connected to your receiver terminals marked 'Surround'

That should get you up and running. If the bass isn't good enough with the passive subwoofer, you can get a decent powered subwoofer like the Velodyne VX-10 for about $150 and 'kick it up a notch'. Good luck and enjoy....

Problem with surround working with just the t.v. on


What type of plug from the TV are you hooking up to the sound system? Its has to be a HDMI or a scart. If its not and your using the rca red and white. The reciver has to be on the synth surrond setting or look in the owners manual, it will tell you what setting the reciver has to be on when using a non surround set or hookup

NO surround sound coming from our harmon/kardon speakers when set up to our onkyo tx-sr601 receiver. wires connected in correct areas, front left, right and center speakers work, subwoofer works. setup for...


So your saying that you have no rear channel. Some recivers use a single stereo output ic for both sides on the rear speakers. you could have a defect with this IC . Anther thing Im sure you check3ed the obvious ie : the switch is on suround sound? If there is a front to rear fader is it in the middle? Good Luck
