SOURCE: Cerwin Vega SUB8...how do I connect

grady66,
We will start with the easy one, Phase. The phase selector is a setting that can be adjusted by sound; which one sounds better? Either one will work fine. It's mainly for situations where the sub enclosure is located at a distance or behind the listening area. The 'in and out' crossover selector and the input from the receiver goes together. The 'in and out' crossover selector is asking if you want to use the internal crossover to block the bass from getting to the satellite speakers. Most home surround sound receivers only have the one sub out and most subs have both left and right inputs. When there is a single signal being fed to the sub you use the subs left input or buy a splitter and send the signal into both left and right, but either way will work equally the same.

There is two ways to connect the speakers to the receiver.

1) Cross-over 'In': you connect the output speaker wires from the receiver to the speaker inputs on the sub and the speaker outputs on the sub to the satellite speakers; the sub will get its sound from the input speaker wires.

2) Cross-over 'Out': you connect the sub to the receiver using the receiver's single sub out, then connect the satellite speakers directly to the receiver's speakers outputs; in this configuration the satellite speakers are given a full range of signal including the bass.

I have used #2 with the same system and had great results.

SOURCE: cerwin vega ht-10d subwoofer won't work in yamaha reciever

Actually, I had the same problem with my JBL PB10. It was the cable. I had to buy a one direction shielded rca cable. If you put it in backwards it will not work. The cable was around 75.00. But it was well worth it. The first cable I tried was a cheap sony brand sub rca cable. I ended up buying the AR(Acoustic Research) 15ft. directional subwoofer RCA cable from Best Buy. Make sure you have your receiver set to the proper setting too. If you have it hooked to main, set it to main. If you have it hooked to the L.F.E.(RCA cable) set it on L.F.E.. Some have the option to set to both. If it is a non powered sub a RCA cable will not work. You will have to run your main speaker cables to the sub first, then from the sub to the speakers. It then "piggybacks" the Low Frequency signals from the receiver.

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.

SOURCE: I have a cerwin vega subwoofer that keeps blowing the fuse

Take a look at the Voltage selector switch (if one is existing). It may be switched at the wrong position. In that case, I hope that the power supply is not burned out (if it is set at the wrong position).

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or add a testimonial.

You may have only messed up the crossover circuit. Try changing the crossover frequency and see if hte behavior changes. If so, then the parts cost should be minimal. If the behaviorr remains the same, there will need to be more investigation done internally. This is not a problem that is likely to be easily resolved remotely. Can you update this with your location? I may be able to provide a recommendation for a service shop.

Are you sure the correct input is selected on BOTH the TV AND the A/V receiver?

Does the subwoofer work on other inputs? If not, is the subwoofer connected correctly? If so, is the input connected correctly?

When turning on the power on my cerwin vega 15" sub the protect light which is a built in protection on the amplifier keeps coming on the power on light does not come on at all just the protect light


The sub could be shorted or the wire connections of the sub could be shorted, or there could be an internal problem with the amplifier such as a shorted output stage or failure of some other component(s)

I just pick up a used LW 10 Powered sub and 2 channel sherwood receiver.What is the preffered method of hook up up the sub with out a pre sub out?


"Sherwood Receiver" doesn't really tell us much about that end of the scenario.

Look at this picture of the sub amp.

http://cgi.ebay.com.sg/CERWIN-VEGA-LW-10-SUBWOOFER-AMPLIFIER-Speaker-Blade-Amp-/350444290153

You COULD run the Main speaker output to the large Red/Black speaker inputs, then some more wires Out from the other Red/Black connectors to your Main Speakers. That way your amp volume control will affect both equally.

Tweak the sub volume, crossover and phase to match it up to your mains.

Hello ! I'm not sure how to connect my kef psw 2500 sub to my yamaha amp. I've got a subwoofer out on my amp but there's 4 inputs on the sub and I don't no which one to use ! Please help as getting...


Just for clarity, I need to explain what the four inputs are on the KEF subwoofer. There is a left and right RCA input which is the input signal to the subwoofer and there is a left and right RCA output which is the High Pass output from the subwoofer.

On the back of the Yamaha receiver, you said you have a subwoofer output. This output is most likely the mono subwoofer part of the home theater system and can be used if you like. The left right signal input into the KEF is summed into mono so if you only connect one channel you will basically reduce the signal level by 1/2 (-3dB) but it will work fine.

Alternatively, if your Yamaha receiver has monitor out and monitor in, you can run the monitor output signals to the subwoofer and you can then run the high pass outputs from the subwoofer back to the monitor in. This will give you the subwoofer and provide a smoother signal matching with your audio system.

It is not always easy to connect the subwoofer up to an integrated receiver/home cinema system using the high pass channels of the subwoofer as you don't always have access to the analog output and input of the front channels. In this case, just use the Subwoofer output or just the monitor out only.

I hope this solution is helpful.

I put an after market cd player in my 2003 acura 3.2 tl type s. all the speakers are working fine but i am not getting any sound out of the factory subwoofer, it is not working. any idead what i did wrong...


You got to connect the blue amp turn on wire. If still dont work. then you got to find the factory amp find the two wires that sends frequency signals to the amp. You will see a total of 7 wires. So you've got to use process of elimination. Use a multimeter.

1.Constant 12 Volt
2. Ground
3. Amp turn on
4. + output wires going to the + of the subwoofer
5. - output wires going to the - of the subwoofer
6 + input wires going to the radio harness
7 + input wires going to the radio harness

6 & 7 are like the rca's you plug in at the input of an aftermarket amplifier and and on the other end plug in the output subwoofer of the Radio.

So on a factory amp you wont see any RCA's its all wires. Once you find the first 5 just remember the last 2 wires.

If you want your radio to control the gain and volume of the Subwoofer get a long RCA plug it on the back of your radio that says sub output and then cut the other end of that RCA and connect the positive the + input wire on the amp and the negative to the negative input wire on the amp.

If you dont know whats positive or negative just go ahead and connect it and experiment. You will know if your in phase when the subs sound boomy. Then the connections are correct. If it sounds Tinney then the connection is out of phase. solder then tape all connections with black electrical tape. Dont leave any power wires exposed or else cause a short and blow fuses.

Good luck

Can you bridge the vega 124 or just use 1 channel on a punch 400x4


Here are the important concerns:
The power rating of the speaker(400W) should be 25% HIGHER than the maximum output of the amplifier BRIDGED. (Amp bridged output 200W - OK!)
The amplifier will get twice as warm running the speaker when loud.
The impedance of the speaker can be no less than 4 ohms when the amplifier is bridged. (Yes, this speaker is 4 ohms - OK!)
Your punch amp is capable of running TWO Cerwin Vega 124s, bridged.
