How to Connect 2 Subwoofers to One Receiver
Subwoofers produce the deep bass sounds that give home theater the realism of being at the movies. A good subwoofer can rattle the walls during action sequences, while adding depth to recorded music and a heightened sense of feeling in the midst of a televised sporting event. Because most home theater receivers are equipped with a single subwoofer jack, connecting a second subwoofer requires a simple audio adapter available at electronics stores. Self-powered subwoofers have their own built-in amplifiers to drive the bass speakers, so they cannot drain power on the main receiver in a system and thus pose no danger to the equipment, even when an extra subwoofer is connected.
Things You'll Need:
Home theater receiver
Y-adapter with RCA jacks on two ends and an RCA plug on the other, available at electronics stores.
2 RCA subwoofer cables
Plug the Y-adapter into the home theater receiver's "Subwoofer OUT" jack.
Connect an RCA subwoofer cable to each jack on the Y adapter and route the cables to the subwoofers in the room. Because subwoofers deliver an omnidirectional sound, the boxes can be placed anywhere they won't get in the way, but within reach of an electrical outlet..
Plug an RCA cable into the "Sub IN" jack on the back of each subwoofer.
Connect the subwoofers to wall outlets and turn on each unit by pressing the power button, typically located on the back panel.
Adjust the volume and crossover settings on each subwoofer as desired. The crossover adjustment knob tells the subwppfer which low-end frequencies to reproduce from the audio signal, such as a movie on DVD. All frequencies higher than the crossover setting will be transferred to the other speakers connected to the receiver.
Tips & Warnings
Use subwoofers that are closely matched in power, as rated in watts, when using two subwoofers in a home theater setup.
Disconnect the subwoofers from the power supply while making the audio connections.
Have a nice day...
