Unfortunately, I don't think you can connect this sub-woofer without the rest of the components of the HTS3440/37 DVD Home Theater System or a related Philips home theater system. The speakers in the system are hard-wired with a colored plug that you connect to the sub-woofer. Then you need connect the inter-connect cable between the sub-woofer to the DVD Player of the system. See the wiring guide in the Quick Start Manual or the User Guide available on the product support page: https://www.usa.philips.com/c-p/HTS3440_37/divx-ultra/support .

Sub-woofers that aren't part of a home theater system connect to a receiver with a digital audio RCA cable. One example is here: https://www.amazon.com/Mediabridge-ULTRA-Subwoofer-Cable-Feet/dp/B003FVYXY0 . Then the speakers also connect to the receiver.

Even if you find another Philips Home Theater system that is missing the sub-woofer, I wouldn't rule out a change in the pin arrangement for the inter-connect cable that would cause the system to fail. I can't find any sources for a replacement inter-connect cable; the part number isn't in the manual that I can find.

I wish that I had better news for you.

SOURCE: "No Signal" when DVD player is hooked up via component video

If you are using the same cables,same input and the cable box works ok. I would look into the settings of the DVD player. Such as is it a progressive playback and is progressive turned on. It is not turned on by default because not all TV's could handle progressive in.

SOURCE: CONNECTING DVD/VCR TO CABLE BOX & TV ETC

If using 3 color RCA (r/w/y) the red and white is audio and should go into your stereo under video or AUX. The yellow is the only video cable you need, that should go to your TV aux in or video1 or video2. You can also put all 3 colors into the tv and then run another red/white OUT to the stereo AUX in and have stereo sound for whatever you are watching.

SOURCE: connect magnavox dvd to ge tv HELP!

There are a few options to connect an older t.v. with a DVD player.

  1. You can connect your new DVD player to a VCR....not recommended as quality loss will occur....use RCA plugs (Red/white/yellow) but it is easy...and many people have an extra one around
  2. plug one end of RCA cord into DVD player, other end to VCR (colour match red plug to red cord)
  3. then to connect VCR to TV...use the coax VIDEO OUT (on VCR) to the TV

  4. OR you can purchase an RF modulator like this at http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/stores/detail/-/electronics/B00009MDBN#moreAboutThisProduct
  5. this option has a greater cost...but the picture quality will not suffer....Note..you will not have Surround sound...but as it is an older tv. you were not used to that anyway..
Great way to keep an older working t.v. out of the landfill

hope this helps!

SOURCE: pink tint when usig the RGB component cable

Check the green signal lead - if one of the RGB leads doesn't make good contact, the picture will take on an odd tint that doesn't always look like it's missing one of those colours. For some reason, the green is always the most common one to fail.

SOURCE: need to connect some samsung audio/video components

I'm guessing that you would like all your components to play audio through the HTZ320. In order to get audio from all these components you will need a digital optical cable from the tv optical out to the HTZ320 optical input. And some composit audio cables (red and white) from tv audio out to the HTZ320 aux input. The video and audio from the dish box, bluray, and the vcr are all going to have to go through the tv first and then to the HTZ320. Use HDMI cables to connect the dish box and the bluray to the tv inputs and composit cables (red white and yellow) from the vcr output to the tv input. If you can give the exact model of the tv I can help you sort things out further. I hope this helps you.

Sub woofer not receiving signal from onkyo HTR520 , bought it in 2007, it works when hooked up to another source. can it be hooked up without using the sub woofer out put on the onkyo


The best thing to try is a factory reset of the Onkyo. The subwoofer out may be stuck off, even if the settings say its on.

hold down the Video 1 and Power on/ Standby buttons. The display should say Clear, then enter standby

turn it on and try the sub again.

since its a powered sub, you're not going to have much of a choice in other outputs without extreme distortion.

also, if that model has two zones, make sure zone 2 is off.

Sub hook up to Receiver


If the Pioneer has only one sub output connect it via a single RCA to the mono one. If it has two outputs (L&R) connect it to the L&R on the sub via a dual lead.
The other connections on the sub are for those amps without a dedicated sub output.

How to hookup


hi,
if u want to hook up the sub with ur av receiver the connect the sub woofer output of ur AVR to any one (left or right) input of ur sub woofer. then connect its power . set the frequency range between 90 and 120Hz. set the volume of sub woofer to 40% of its total. also check the av receives speaker setting. goto speaker setup and make ON the sub woofer out.

if want to connect the sub to a stereo amp without sub out. then connect the amps speaker line to the speaker input of sub woofer and connect the speaker out of sub to left and right speaker ( make sure to connect the red to red and black to black). set the volume and frequency as above
ok

What would be the best amp to push 2 kicker 15 L7s


find the ohms on each subwoofer and how much it can handle. If you have two 4 ohm subs get a powerful MONO AMP and hook it up in parallal. If you have two 2 ohm subs get a (1 ohm stable) Powerful MONO AMP and hook it up in parallel or a powerful 2 CHANNEL AMP but the wiring can be a little complicated cause you've got to connect the subs in series and bridge it on the positive of 1 channel and the negative of 2nd channel for maximium benefit without burning out the 2 channel amp. If you got two 500 Watt subs then you got to find an amp that can put out 1000Watts anything less wont sound good and may burn out the subs because of too much distortion cause of lack of power.

How do I factory reset my Philips 23pf5320


did you have the power supply connected to any componet in your system while making connections , {not just on stand by} ? if so you have probably blown your tv's amplifer. never ever connect or disconnect audio or video connections without disconnecting ac power from the entire system !!! you may or may not get lucky doing this for a good while but sooner or later fate will track you down.

Need help with the system


Did you connect your TV to the DVD player via video cable (S-video, composite, or component)? That might be why you cant see the screen and stuff. To connect to TV, just connect your VIDEO OUT on the dvd player to the VIDEO IN on your TV. About that sub...you can hook it up, but it will only have as much punch as the player will allow. In other words, dont expect much out of a 20" sub if you have a 100 watt system.
