Question about Sony SA-WM20 Subwoofer

HOOKING UP THE SONY SA-WM20 TO AN AUDIOPHILE PREAMP

I am connecting two (2 channel) speakers to the SA-WM20 subwoofer. There is an input terminal above the speaker connections to the subwoofer. What should be connected to that terminal?

I am trying to connect the subwoofer (cable tv, plasma and dvd player) to my conrad johnson SA120 amplifier and PV10BL preamp which only has the following rear inputs: main out, tape out, tape in, aux 2, video, cd, tuner and aux1/ph. It's a bit confusing since the sony dvd player has the three (red/white/blue) rca jack hookup. Can anyone lend a hand to this audiophile novice? Much appreciated, Carlos.

How can i connect my subwoffer to my preamp (mark levinson 38)


You can't hook it up to your preamp. If the sub has speaker level inputs you would use them to hook it up to your amp speaker terminals. The left positive and negative goes to the corresponding left positive and negative at the amplifier and the same for the right channel.

I have a sony sub model sa-wm20 will it work with this mini system


Read the manual.

You would use the Speaker Terminal hookup option. Your front speakers would attach to the sub's speaker terminals.

Can i hook up my SA-WM20 subwoofer to my sony DAV-S500 home theater


As long as your sony reciever has a sub out connection you should be able too. This powered sub you have has a rca sub input which should coincide with the receivers rca sub out.

you can do this one of two ways, you can use just the left "mono" on your sub or use a y connector. If the sub doesn't show the left as mono then YES you need a y cable

How to wire in a cross over


You didn't say if it was active or passive, but here is both:

Passive crossovers are easy to install. By definition, the only type of connections they require are to your speaker line. They typically get installed between the end of the speaker wire and the speaker. Connection should be fairly simple, just like hooking up the speaker itself.

Now F-Mod crossovers modify the audio signal before it is amplified. They accept the patch cord from your receiver on one end, and then plug directly into the preamp inputs on your amplifier. They are also easy to install, and don't require additional wiring.

 An active crossover requires a little more work. You have to connect 12-volt power, ground, and a turn-on lead. The active crossover gets installed between your receiver and your amplifier. A lot of active crossovers have both speaker-level and preamp inputs, so they can usually work with either type of connection. The outputs will be preamp connections to your amplifier. Hope that helps.
