There is not a subwoofer input jack on the back of this subwoofer. There are a set of input (negative and positive) terminals and a set of output (negative positive) terminals like would hook speaker wires to. There were no instructions in the box. Can you please help me with a DIAGRAM on how to connect this.

On the back of the sub woofer you have two sets of binding post / some have spring clip terminals ( red & black ) labeled Speaker In ( sometimes High Level In ) and Speaker out.
Take 2 pairs of speaker cables and connect one end to the speaker out socket of your amplifier ( left & right ) . The other end of the cable should be connected to the sub woofer's Speaker In socket , Red to red and black to black. Now on the Speaker Out socket of the sub woofer connect your existing pair of speakers using another pair of speaker cables. If your sub woofer has a Hi Pass filter built in , you may not hear bass coming from your existing speakers with this kind of connection. Good if you have small satellite speakers.

How to hook up the subwoffer


There are several methods, depending on the the types of 1)inputs on the subwoofer and 2) outputs on the amplifier (aka receiver). You can only use the type that is on BOTH.

Most sub woofers have "line level" inputs (they are the RCA phono style jacks or other style jack) that are marked "In" or "Input" and may have speaker level input & output terminal that accept speaker wires.

Amplifiers or "amp" all have speaker level outputs and many also have jacks that are labeled "Subwoofer" or "LFE" (low frequency effects) Output. If both your sub and amp have the "line level" jacks, then all you need to do is get a cable that is long enough to connect the two together, and then enable the low frequencies to be sent to the sub instead of the normal speakers in the receiver's set up menu. Done!

If you have only a speaker level connections common to both the sub and amp, you'll most likely need to disconnect the Main front L and R speakers from the amp and connect to the sub's Speaker Output terminals - and connect a couple of new speaker cables between the sub's Speaker Input terminals and the amp's Main front L and R terminals.

If you don't understand completely, provide the make and model of the amp and the sub, and I'll be able to clear up anything that isn't clear.

How do I hook up a powered subwoofer to a pioneer sx-316?


Many subwoofers accept both line level (RCA jacks) and amplified inputs (+ and - speaker terminals). The Pioneer SX-316 does not offer line level output, only amplified outputs via the PURPLE + and - speaker terminals. This means that in order to use any subwoofer with an SX-316, the sub woofer will need to accept a + and - speaker wire connections for input Your manual speaker connections are on page 11 of the manual which can be found here: http://www.manualslib.com/manual/260358/Pioneer-Sx-316-S.html#manual

Starting at the rear of the SX-316; run a speaker wire from the PURPLE + and - terminal (SUBWOOFER) to the + and - speaker input terminals on the subwoofer. See your subwoofer manual or experiment (at your own risk) with connecting the speaker wire from the SX-316 to the subwoofer's + and - LEFT only, RIGHT only or BOTH left and right speaker inputs. Do not connect wires from the SX-316 to the speaker OUTPUT terminals of your subwoofer.

Finally, adjust any variable low pass filter knob or setting on the subwoofer to the lowest frequency that your main speakers are capable of producing. If you're not sure what that value is, try setting the subwoofer to 100Hz and judge how it blends with the main speakers. If it seems a little too bass heavy and thick then reduce the setting to 80Hz. On the other hand, if the sound seems to be slightly thin and lacking weight, try increasing the setting to 120Hz. By careful listening and a bit of patience you will be able to get the sound to seem balanced and well blended.

Good luck!

I unpluged my amp from my car and i forgot where all the wires went i need help to hook back up right


There should be a group of screw terminals. They should say pos or (+), remote, and ground, GND, or (-). This is the power terminal. The power from the battery goes to the (+), the remote turn one (thin wire) goes to the one labeled remote (usually inbetween the ground and power wires), and the ground to the (-). RCA jacks should be labeled input and output. Plug the appropriate colors in the input ones. The speaker terminals are labeled left and right + and -. If it is a 4 channel amp, it will also have front and rear. Depending how you wired your speakers is how they will go to the amp. Follow the speaker wires to the appropriate prongs positive or negative. Hope this helps.

How do I hook it up to my Surround sound reciever?


Hooking up a subwoofer is dependent upon what hookups are availble on the receiver and subwoofer. Does your receiver have a specific subwoofer output? If so, is it set of speaker-wire terminals, or is it an RCA jack? The Wharfedale can accomodate either one of these as an input. There are four speaker posts on the back of the subwoofer, and there is a single RCA jack input.

How to run wires is series fof 3 subs


If they are single voice coil speakers (1 positive and 1 negative terminal on each speaker) then connect from amps' Positive output terminal to spkr. 1 positive terminal, THEN spkr. 1 neg. terminal to spkr. 2 positive terminal, THEN spkr. 2 negative terminal to spkr. 3 positive terminal, THEN spkr. 3 negative terminal to amps' negative output terminal.

That is 3 speakers wired in series. if each spkr is 2ohms, then you will have a total 6 ohm load. If 4 ohm spkrs., then a total 12 ohm load, if 8 ohm spkr., then a total 24 ohm load.

Be careful because amps do not like these odd ohm load totals. You might get away with a 6 ohm total load. Depends on the amp.

How do i install it it was a hand me down with no instructions


http://dl.owneriq.net/a/a44b260d-f7bb-4ae7-bd9f-5a4722cb9427.pdf

in general

the positive terminal is connected to the positive of the battery

the negative terminal is connected to a metal grounding point on the car ( find a metal spot on the car to connect the negative terminal of amplifier)(do not connect it to the negative side of the battery)

the remote terminal connects to either the remote line from the back of the radio blue and white wire

if the radio does not have a remote wire then use the red wire which is the acc (check this against your car wiring)

the speakers are simple connect the positive of radio to positive terminal ect

and the input comes from the radio as a phono jack connect that to the input of the input of the amplifier right left ect ect also if the radio has only left and right then you need a splitter for the phono cable because your amp is 4 channel

if the radio does not have phono jacks then you need to take the output that usually goes to the speakers and route them to the amp and attach pho no jacks on them

How to wire 2 opti1533d by lanzar with the optidrive 2000d amp? how do i wire them if i put 1 amp on each sub


your speakers are 1 ohm per voice coil, dual oice coil. your amp is no lower than 2 ohms stable mono.

the proper way to wire this so that you do not burn out the amp is to run the 2 vioce coils in series. run the positive lead from the amp into the positive lead of one of the voice coils, then run a jumper wire from the same voice coil's negative lead to the same speaker's 2nd voice coil's positive input. then run from the 2nd voice coil's negative back to the amplifier's negative speaker lead.


you will be running for each speaker/amplifier set: amp + to terminal set 1 +, terminal set 1 - to terminal set 2 +, then terminal set 2 - to amp -

If you have an amp thats mono block with 1 channel but two positives and two negatives what is the best way to hook it up for two 12in.


The fact that there are 2 output terminal sets are simply for convenience. You need to know your amps ratings, but it is probably rated to handle 2 ohms. In this case, (assuming your 2 speakers are single coil 4 oh,s each) just connect them one speaker per set of jacks. (the output terminals are electrically connected inside of the amp, and are the same piece of metal (both the positives are the same, and so are the negatives).
By connecting your 2 subs in this manner, your amp will be pushing 2 ohms with the power equally divided between the two woofers.

This is the best way to hook up, and will get the most power from your amp.

8 wires on my subwoofer??


"One has positive and negative input, another positive and negative output (red and black on each)"

Just from your description, it sounds like pos/neg input are the 12 volt pos neg supply for the amp inside the subwoofer. Red is pos, black is neg.

"positive and negative output (red and black on each)"

This sounds like it's used if you want to proved 12 volt pos/neg to another component.

"and a third wire with left input right input positive and negative (blue, red, yellow and black)"

This is for the cables coming from the "subwoofer out" on the amp. This is 4 wires altogether -- correct?
