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.

Why is the subwoofer making a buzzing sound? Is there a solution?


I have had the same problem with my Sony sub. It sounds like it is picking up electrical noise and would not go into standby when the reciever was off. I rerouted my wires and changed to a much higher quality wire. I was using a very low quality stranded copper with thin insulation to start with.

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

The 'Subwoofer' output on your receiver is used to connect to a powered subwoofer with a built in amplifier. Your KLH speakers use what is called a 'passive' subwoofer, it gets its power from the receiver and then passes the higher frequencies to the left and right front speakers after taking out the low frequencies for the subwoofer. A speaker system with a passive subwoofer is good for casual listening, but a powered subwoofer is required for really hearing low frequencies and rumble in movies. The KLH speakers you have were highly rated in their time for their price. The four satellite speakers and center channel speaker have very good sound compared to the little 'midget' surround sound speakers most people buy today.

Here's how you hook them up:

- The left and right front channels from your receiver terminals should go to the terminals on the subwoofer marked 'From Amplifier'
- Your left and right front speakers are then connected to the subwoofer terminals marked 'To Speakers', they do not connect directly to your receiver.
- Your center speaker is connected to your receiver terminals marked 'Center'
- Your rear speakers are connected to your receiver terminals marked 'Surround'

That should get you up and running. If the bass isn't good enough with the passive subwoofer, you can get a decent powered subwoofer like the Velodyne VX-10 for about $150 and 'kick it up a notch'. Good luck and enjoy....
