I have the sony str-dg510 receiver and tried to hook up a passive subwoofer from my old sony dream system. The connection on the receiver is an rca, and the one on the subwoofer is the two lead terminal. The subwoofer works on my old sony dream system but doesn't make a sound when hooked up to the receiver. Not sure if I need to get another subwoofer. Hoping i won't need to get one. Thank you in advance
Your receiver does not have a power amp to drive the speaker in the subwoofer while your other amp did. With this receiver you need to use a powered (active) subwoofer which has it's own power amp in it. You can either change out your subwoofer to a powered (active) subwoofer, or keep using your passive (unpowered) one and add a power amp between it and the receiver. The easiest way to tell a powered subwoofer is to see if has a place to plug it into the wall. If it does, it will most likely work in this situation.

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 .
The reason you may find it difficult to connect the Sony Receiver to the Jensen JS650 is that the JS650 does not have a line level input (RCA) to match the RCA subwoofer output of the STR-DE597 receiver. In this case, all you need to do is connect an extra set of speaker wires from the "Speaker B" Left and Right speaker connections on the back of the Sony to the speaker input connectors on the Jensen. On the front panel of the Sony, select speakers A+B settings so that the subwoofer is on in parallel with the front speakers.
I hope this answer is helpful to your home system set up.
Sorry but it's not clear enough what kind of subwoofer (passive or active) you want to use. The passive one has no power supply connection, the active one has a power supply connector and the audio connector can be connected at the "audio out" for the subwoofer, at the rear panel of your STR-DE1075.

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
The STR-DG510 carries video only over the HDMI port. Technically, this is a "pass-thru" port. Most older receivers are engineered to operate this way. Why? I don't know. You MUST provide the audio connection using a separate TOSLINK or RCA cable from the program source to the receiver while your video is connected via the HDMI port.
Stick to IT work, MSOFT IT pro. I got smart and bailed out being an IT guru. I got better things to do than screw around with the idiotic nonsense of Microsoft operating systems and applications being a thing of fashion rather than being useful and practical.
The output of the Sony is "signal only" not power. Being "passive" like your sub. What you need is a sub amp, and they are not cheap, 400-600 on average "min". Unless you have a Velodyne 15 or 18, just get an amplified sub, they start around 150 new. Hope this helps
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....
