Question about Sherwood RX-5502 Receiver

1 Answer

I would like to connect my powered subwoofer (Atlantic Technology model 212 SB) to my Sherwood RX5502 receiver. Unfortunately, the receiver has no subwoofer outputs, only speaker outputs, and the Subwoofer only has RCA outputs and inputs. Should I try to use the headphone output and splice a headphone cord (by altering the other end to RCAs) to plug into the subwoofer's inputs? Any other suggestions for incorporating the subwoofer?

Cables between sources and compatible units rarely need to be physically modified.

Splicing headphone outputs designed for nominal 8-ohm impedance speakers to a 47K-ohm (typical) RCA load is not a good idea but it might work on the Sherwood because this receiver does not automatically silence your other speakers when the headphone jack is installed.

There is NO other volume-controlled output to choose. Try it.

Model rv6030r. How can I connect a subwoofer?


On those older model receivers there is no place to connect a subwoofer, you need to get some high quality 3 way floor speakers and use those, the crossover network in the speaker takes care of the routing of the low end signals to the woofer.

I have a Jensen KS212 and I'm connecting it to a home theatre receiver direct to see if it works but nothing comes out of it. Does this mean the sub is not working or there's not enough power from...


Hi, welcome to FixYa..

Your subwoofer requires a seperate amplifier that has low pass filter in the pre out system, which means it will allow all low frequency signals from the input section of the amplifier/ crossover. Your receiver has combined signals of high, mid and midbass signals that will not be able to drive your subwoofer. That is the main reason why some receivers has "Subwoofer Out" to allow you to use "Active Subwoofer systems" (also known has self powered or has a built in amplifier w/ subwoofer)
For you to use your Subwoofer, it must have a seperate amplifier, connect it to Sub out of your receiver and from there you can hear the difference. Hope this helps.

Simple question?? how do I connect my Panasonic subwoofer to my denon receiver?


I have a very similar problem with the same exact Panasonic sub. I went to Best Buy and Radio Shack looking for an adapter, and they basically told me that one does not exisit. Apparently, Panasonic designed the home theater system specifcally so that it could not work if any part of the entire system was ever seperated.

Hi - You can download the manual by clicking the link underlined in blue below:

Your sub woofer needs to have it's own power amp i.e. a "powered" sub woofer:

Assuming your sub woofer is powered & connect as shown then check the following setting:
