What you are proposing will not work.
You can EITHER use the Line inputs OR high level speaker inputs.

Using the line inputs, your L&R line level signals pass through the sub on their way to a stereo amp, then speakers.

Using the Speaker inputs, your L & R speaker cables connect from your amp (or PC speaker outputs) to the "Speaker input" terminals. The "Speaker output" terminals then connect to your speakers.

How do i connect my subwoofer to my home theater


Easy. Your home theatre amp will have a sub or LFE output ( RCA plug ). You simply connect this output to the input ( usually the left side, or use a Y splitter and use left and right inputs, or the LFE input if your sub has it ). Then, you must turn the sub on in your recievers setup menu, and your sub should work.

I do not know how to connect the woofer KEF PSW3500 to the amplifier Denon 4310. BCC sold me a 1 on 1 plug, but the woofer needed to plugs (left and right).


Bass is mono directional in the main,and while your sub has a left and right input ( because a few amps do have left and right sub outs) only one of them is required (usually marked as MONO on the sub). You can also get a Y splitter phono adapter and connect the single cable you have to both sockets, which is how I have mine set up. This is most common

I have bought JAMO sub 250 subwoofer and Pioneer VSX919AH-K amp. Please advise how can I connect them. The amp has one RCA out for sub but the sub has two line in sockets (left and right). Do I need to use...


Hi,
You don't need such cable, although you can use it if you have one. If receiver has only mono SUB output (as majority of receivers have), you just connect it to the Left socket on the Sub and it will work.

Using the Y cable would probably cause that you will fed the same signal to both left and right sockets, but half the intensity (you would divide the output from receiver by 2). So in the end the Sub would receive exactly the same signal as when using normal straight cable.

Bose cinemate no sound


Yes it will work coming straight off the dirctv box. What kind of tv do u have that doesnt have an audio out. I have had to actually use rca splitters to get sound from bluray and cable box because the new samsung led tvs only have optical out. Dont forget the unit not being used must be off or u will have 2 source sounds at one time playing.

How do I get sound from bose cinemate while watching Bluray with?


You are right I checked the Manual online and there is no Optical in. The other tech was right in suggesting that, Cause it would be the next best thing to HDMI. It only has 1 Analog Audio in, So what I would Recommend is Plugging in all of your Devices to your TV and then 1 Audio cable from your TV to The Bose input. Although this will NOT transfer Digital Audio to Analog Audio. This means if you are going in HDMI then the Audio would most likely NOT transfer to the Bose. In this case you would have to hook up a set of Audio cables (Red and White) From the Blu-Ray to the Bose along with the HDMI. This will leave you with only Audio from the Blu-ray through the Bose. To go a step further you can purchase an Audio Splitter (or Video) then plug your Devices into the Splitter and then 1 cable out to the Bose and just Switch the Input along with the TV. Good Luck!

how many audio input does your cinemate have? in case you only have one, you need an audio video switcher. a sample picture of what you need is on this link > http://electronicsusa.com/svs14.html find what you need, that is just for you to see what its look like. another thing is check you dvd if it has a line input - meaning it allows you to connect another source into your dvd such as vhs, cd, mp3. for for audio video - you need 3 wires (video/audio left-right), for stereo audio - 2 wires (left/right connection). some dvd player call it as line1 and line2 inputs. if you have it then you should be ok. 3rd approach, a simple audio mixer with minimum 3 inputs and 1 ouput is enough. note: last thing, check your connection interface for connection compatibility if you plan to buy audio video switcher or audio mixer. hope this help. regards, cebuwano

What is the proper way to connect to home theater system?


Does the Sub have a Low- Level input? This is a RCA type female connector, what you need to do is run a Male RCA cable from your home theatre where it says Sub-OUT and go into the Sub woofer Line in. Unless you only have speaker wire inputs on the back of the Sub then take the Left and Right front into the Sub speaker inputs and then out of the Sub speaker OUTS back to your speakers.

Purchased used m audio w/o connect cables for cpu


The BX8's take either a TRS or XLR inputs only. from a laptop, you can get a 1/8" stereo to 1/4" l/r mono splitter cable at radio shack that will plug into the back. then just plug up and you will be good to go for about $10.
serously, though, you should save up and buy a studio level firewire or usb card like the presonus inspire and use that to connect. for 200 bucks more spent, you would have much better quality recordings and playbacks that are matched and line level.

BOO-YA!!!

Connecting my subwoofer


got manual on speaker?the reason y some subs have left and rt. is bcause some equipment dont have sub output channel.most sub left channel is usuallly dedicate toe the lfe,which is for the sub output.try it with a splitter and single see if you lose so bass drops when in single,if so then go double .but i think its the left channel.you wont damage anything by conecting a splitter,tet in low volumes ,.but try to get the manual from company or contact them atleast.

Hook up pair Bx8a to pc


XLR? not true. gold plated, balanced trs cables have a better sound and actually compliments the bx8's technology. that said, you can get cable that is trs-balanced on one end and rca's on the other. then just get a "Y" right-left rca into a stereo 1.5 cable. easy and cheap. but using xlr's for output? NO. save those for your input MIDI instruments and controllers.
