Question about Samson Resolv Sub88 Subwoofer

Sub remote works with two passive satallite monitors but sub has no sound

I've had two passive sampson monitors for a while. I just purchased an active sub-woofer for the set up. To run the two passive monitors I've used the Crate SPA-200 amp. The sub has a built in amp. On page 12 of the manual it gives me the setup for this type of rig. Even after following these steps it still does not come on at all. The remote that comes with the sub works for the satallite monitors as well. the pdf manual for the Crate is on google as well as the pdf for the Sampson sub on page 12. The mixer that I have is the Mackie 1202 vlz the pdf is the computer setup also in google. I might be missing something ,Please help

If sub has two signal outputs and if the monitors are full range (passive crosover built in), put mixer outputs to the sub and signal outputs of the sub to amps in.If not mixer outputs to th amp and its signal outputs to the sub in.Or you can use main out of the mixer for the monitors and rec out for the sub.Its just few XLR or jack cables extra.Just make sure that the mixer,sub and the amp are on the same power phase otherwise you'll have brrrrrrrrrrr on the speakers

How do convert my active sub to passive sub speakers


Disconnect the subs amp from the driver. Run wires directly from the driver to whatever amp is now powering it. If the drivers impedance isn't too low, that should work.

What won't usually work is a one or two ohm car woofer on a home stereo/ theatre setup. The impedance is too low.

Can I and how do I hook a subwoofer to my Sony str-de705 receiver


It depends. You can connect an active (self-powered) sub-woofer to the STR-DE705. You can't connect a passive sub-woofer that needs power from the receiver. If the sub-woofer has its own power cord, then it's an active unit. See https://us.en.kb.sony.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/37001 for more information. You'll also need a RCA subwoofer cable. This is like a RCA audio cable but only has one plug on each end. (Using a regular audio cable may risk a short when the extra plugs hit something.) Many subwoofers will come with the audio cable. If you do need one, they are available at most places that sell cables, including Amazon.com .

Here is an example of an active subwoofer: https://us.en.kb.sony.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/37001 . This is the Yamaha YST-SW012.

I hope this helps.

Alesis M1 active 620 woofer problem


There clearly is a fault in the sub's amp section. It's probably the main part that does most of the work. It will need to be replaced.

Cerwin vega passive subwoofer model sw-12b


Passive woofers are hooked up to the output of a sub amp.
Active woofers are hooked up to the sub out of a receiver. They have the amp built in.

Connecting a Sony Subwoofer SA-W2500 to a STR DE 598


It is based on your sub-woofer type..whether powered or passive sub woofer..
Assume that you have powered one..RCA sub woofer jack is the best to feed it ..you should use RCA sub woofer output on your receiver as well..good luck
