Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I am using the single line input from my receiver to my sub. The SUB from my other system works when it is plugged into this same line so I am pretty sure it is the SONY sub that is not working.

With subs, it's either
The sub settings for testing should be: Crossover frequency - Max; Volume - Mid; Phase - Normal.
As a quick test, unplug the sub cab from the amplifier/receiver end. Switch on the sub and turn the volume down all the way. Briefly put your finger across to short the RCA/phono tip and ring. The sub should make a buzzing sound. You now know that the sub is working and the cable appears to be okay or not.
Most subs auto sense a signal. So if the Sony isn't doing that then there's the problem. Given that these are very much a budget sub, I'd be inclined to have a look for something simple such as a broken solder joint or bulging capacitor. If it's anything more indepth then the cost to repair will outweigh the value of a replacement.

Um, its hard to understand you, but to my understanding you don't know which is positive and which is negative... Striped= Positive, bold= Negative, or Red= Positive, black =Negative. Lastly + positive - negative
