4 subs and two amps

That's fine I will try that. how should the RCA coming off of the sub woofer output from the radio go into the amp? Split one female to two male adapters and then what, which side should it go to after that?

I'm not that familiar with the insignia line but If the amps have an "input" and an "output" for the RCAs then run the RCAs in one, Then hook the output of that one to the input of the other. I did this with my 2 memphis 500Ds and it worked great. It also looks better than a couple of splitters, but yes You would just get two splitters with all female connections on them so you can plug 2 sets of RCAs into the one set. Also it doesn't really matter how you hook the RCAs up unless you are going for stereo sound then you would need to make sure the rights are hooked up together and the lefts are hooked up together. I hope I could help.

Yamaha rx-v2500 receiver how to hook up speakers


HI,

Follow these steps to connect a powered sub woofer to your receiver: You typically have two options when connecting a powered sub woofer. Input (1) on the rear of the sub woofer would be used when connecting the sub woofer to the receiver using speaker wires. You would then connect the main speakers to the opposite end, or output or the sub woofer to the main speakers. Option (2) would be using RCA line level output jacks, input (2) on the rear panel of the sub woofer directly to the single sub woofer output on the back of an AV receiver. blank.gif

I have a clarion m 309 radio and I'm trying to hook up a fusion FM 402 amp for a sub woofer. I had all speakers playing but, I could not control the volume of the sub with the radio. I need to know...


Amps usually receive their signal through RCA wires. Your radio should have one pair of RCA outputs on the back. (red and white) You will adjust your subwoofer volume by adjusting the gains on the amplifer (little knob next to the RCA inputs of the amp), then you can turn up the bass on your radio.

Im not sure which plugs I should plug my RCA cables that come from my amp to the reciever. I dont know if its the "back RCA output" or the "Front RCA output" or the "subwoofer...


First of all get yourself a Y-LINK cable. (single male RCA on one side/ double female RCA on the other side) Connect the Y-LINK to your head unit sub woofer output with the stereo RCA that leads to the sub woofer amplifier. Now you are connected to the correct output. I do not know what head unit you had connected before to base your comparison, however there is a output voltage difference from one head unit to another, (1.2V, 2V, 2.5V, 4V, 5V) and that is what determines where the gain on the amplifier should be set to. Always match the headunit output voltage with the amplifier gain control to be the same. It is not uncommon for some entry level units to have a single sub woofer output. dreamsystems

The low frequencies adjustment is not working when i turn the sub frequency on low it lowers the volume of the bass completely


check the rca cables on the back to see if you might have the sub woofer cable in wrong rca spot

this is how it should be wired from your radio front output a set of rca cables go to the radio input of the eq. if you have sub out on radio it will not be used ... eq takes place of it ... turn off subout on radio ... to use eq or preamp you must have at 2 amps 1 for mids and tweets and 1 for subs to work eq right

then from the eq you have another set of rca cables comming from the front output to your mids and tweet amp and then if you dont have a second amp u wont need rear output move over to the suboutput and run a set of rca cables from eq's sub output to sub amp this is how the audio cable section should be connected if you still dont get it to work proper then then it has a electronic issue and need to warranted out if still in warranty or buy new one .... here is a link to the install manual with a wire diagram for repair shop .....http://www.poweracoustik.com/pa2006/manual%20and%20catalog/Processors/PWM-20.pdf

Could a ground stop your woofer from working?


First check the speaker wire from the amp to the sub, see if it's connected right. Second check the rca cables that goes from your amp to the back of the deck. I f both wires are still connected fine try to replace the rca cables. If it still doesn't work the rear out put at the back of your deck, where the rca's are connected are bad. FYI deck is bad.

Subwoofer to receiver hookup


In general, there are two ways to hook up your sub-woofer. First using the high level outputs from your receiver ( speaker output from the front R & L speaker terminals ) run a set of wires from the outputs to the speaker inputs on the sub-woofer, you do this in concert with the speaker wires going to the front R & L speakers which you then attach to the R & L speaker outputs on the sub woofer amp. Note that the sub woofer doesn't power your front speakers, the connections from the sub amp are just a pass through connection where the signal needed by the sub is parasitically taken from the inputs.
Second is via a low level output from your receiver / amp to the low level input on your sub amp. This is normally done via a RCA type of patch cable and connected to the sub woofer RCA jack on the rear of the source receiver or amp, Next run the patch cord to the sub amp an into the RCA jack input. IF you have a right and left input, use the Right input.

Still no sub woofer output


SET THE CROSSOVER TO "L.P.F."POSITION AND SELECT THE LOWEST FREQUENCY AS THE CROSSOVER POINT.
[AN AMPLIFIER IS SUPPOSED TO "AMPLIFY"(TO INCREASE)ANY OUTPUT.]

TRY CHANGING THE POLARITY OF WIRES FROM AMPLIFIER TO SPEAKERS /SUBWOOFER.{it leads to cancellation of bass output.}
if u still have doubt contact me again.
