Hook up to a receiver


what kind of connector is opn the sub? probably a mini-audio plug like a set of headphones? If that is the case, you can get an adapter from mini-plug to rca cable.

You don't mention what receiver we're dealing with so we have no idea what facilities it has that might take advantage of the Line Level inputs on the sub's amp.

You probably COULD just run the Speaker A wires from the receiver to the High Level inputs on the sub, then run another set of speaker wires out to your regular front Left and Right speakers. This sub is self-amplified so it would use the speaker level from your receiver only to guide its internal amp.

If you have volume-controlled pre-outs on the receiver that could be used, too.

I can't find a manual for your sub but go here, register for free and download the manual for a typical powered sub. They all do it pretty much the same.

I have a s108sp subwoofer with a right and left input assuming this is for a cable going to one input on my Sony reciever. The subwoofer also has inputs for speakers. Do I plug the speaker wires into...


Hey there houleo!
If your subwoofer has a stereo input and stereo outputs, then it's a good idea to send the signal from your receiver to the sub, then out to the other speakers you have hooked up. Some subwoofers will take the low frequencies out of the signal to the left and right speakers, so that the sub handles it alone. This often gives a nice crisp sound.

I get a red light on the back panel labeled power. No green light. I don't think the PV 600 is working but when I run the channel check through my Pioneer THX receiver I hear sound. Any thoughts?


The PV600 and PV400 have auto-on circuitry that turns the subwoofer on when a signal is presented, and turns off if no signal is detected for 15 minutes.

Not knowing which Pioneer receiver you have I have dropped in the steps for No Sound from Subwoofer:

• Check that the subwoofer is connected properly, switched on and the volume turned up.

• If your subwoofer has a sleep function, make sure it is switched off.

• Make sure that the Subwoofer setting is YES or PLUS (see Speaker Setting on page xx).

• The crossover frequency may be set too low; try setting it higher to match the characteristics of your other speakers (see Speaker Setting on page xx)

• If there is very little low frequency information in the source material, change your speaker settings to Front: SMALL / Subwoofer: YES , or Front: LARGE / Subwoofer: PLUS (see Speaker Setting on page xx).

• Check that the LFE channel is not set to -80dB , or a very quiet setting (see Bass Peak Level

on page xx).

• Check the speaker level settings (see Channel Level on page xx).

Regarding the Large vs Small assignment of speakers, what they mean isn't so much the physical size but the ability to handle real bass. Large if Yes.

Re: Boston digital BA735. Hum with or without input signal.


Hmmm I just got the same problem. They worked fine on my old Dell desktop but when I plugged them in to my son's old Dell PC (maybe 1 year newer than my old one) they all hum like crazy - as you say even if it's just the power plugged in and nothing else. Yes it does have the original power supply. I get no music (but still it hums) from digital out/in but when I switch to analog out/in I hear the music and it still hums, plus the sound is distorted. Wierd.

I have boston acoustics BA735 speakers that I want to hook up to my new computer, but I need to plug them into a usb port. the speaker cable only has a standard plug. Are there converters available?


doesn't your computer have a standard audio output port?

I'm fairly sure it must have one......if not, try using the Headphone plug.

sometimes it's a dual output.......stereo/headphones.

Install Boston Acoustic speakers BA7800 to a new Imac?


Partial Solution anyway - I just got a Mac Pro (2.66 Nehalem )and couldn't find the manual from my old Gateway 700XL. This is what I did: Plug the green wire into the analog output, and the pink wire (if you really need an external mic, but you shouldn't since our new computers both have a built-in mic) into the analog input. Just ignore the black wire. You won't have the 2 surround speakers, but I'm still looking for a fix for that. I got tired of the crappy speakers in my new Apple Cinema display (the ONLY crappy thing about my new system). As you know, the sound from the BA7800 is great, even with just the two front speakers and sub-woofer. I'll keep you posted if/when I figure out how to set up the surround speakers! Likewise, if you hear something, please post here and I'll keep checking back.

Hook up problems


either cut an rca cable and splice it to the speaker wires (not easy because the rca cable is coax type or buy rca ends from radio shack and do a little soldering
