Conncect powered subwoofer to passive subwoofer wires???

I just bought an LG home theater in a box. It came with a passive subwoofer ( 2wired speaker) but I have a powered subwoofer with an RCA input that I would rather use. I there any way I can convert the powered subwoofer for use with this system? Is there a converter? If i strip down the RCA cable and connect it will it work or will the power from the speaker output fry my subwoofer?

Do I need controller to use them


Generally you would use the Bose Panaray controller with these for the best performance, but you could just wire them up with an active crossover. Not as good, but useable.

Connecting a passive subwoofer to a denon 2113


you need another reciever/amp to power that sub, because that denon reciever is designed for a powered sub,. if you have another old reciever/amp laying around, you can connect the sub out from the denon into an auxillary input of any old reciever/amp, (switched to that input) with speaker wires from old reciever/amp to the passive sub

Can i put an extra sub woofer on my lg da3525 via the woofer out socket and what plug do i require to do this


Hi,

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
2 subwoofers


Instructions


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...

How to connect the speakers to the sb-wa342 panasonic subwoofer


I hope I understand you correctly.

As you can probably tell from the very different connector types on the subwoofer and the HTS, they don't match up. That speaker system and this electronics are not meant to be used together.

The SC-BT200 uses passive subwoofer while the SB-WA342 is an active (powered) subwoofer.

I need to power-cycle the board, but how?


This speaker system is described as consisting of "passive" satellite speakers with an "active" subwoofer. Passive means they require an external amplifier to work - and conversely active means there is a built in amplifier. To "power cycle the board" simply disconnect the power cord for a couple minutes (allows capacitors in the circuit to discharge) and plug back in. That's it.

Good luck!

Can I plug 5pc home theater speakers directly into pc tower or will I fry something? The speakers (made by LG) R from an old Sanyo DVD/VCR/Audio Home Theater System which no longer works. Home Theater...


Attaching speakers to an under-powered amp won't DRAW too much power. And we're not talking about an amp here, we're talking about a PC which can
only provide enough juice for headphones. All it provides is Line Level (millivolts) output for an external amp to process.

The speakers are NOT self amplified. If they were they'd have batteries or wall power cords and RCA style input connectors.

What you will need is a replacement for the dead Sanyo electronics that can handle 4-ohm speaker loads. Then you can draw the output of your soundcard into IT with RCA cables..

I have a subwoofer with standard speaker wire connection, how to I attach to a receiver with a subwoofer cable?


The Subwoofer is Likely Passive....meaning no amplifier is within the enclosure itself....the incompatible connectors mean you cannot connect the subwoofer itself to your surround sound system.

look for a Suitable stand-alone (1 Channel) Amplifer with sufficent power.....connect the RCA Imputs (subwoofer cable) to the Recievers RCA subwoofer output....then connect the amplifier's output to the the wire going into the subwoofer enclosure....if there is a plastic connector simply cut it off and strip the wires down a sufficent lenght....then secure the wires to the output of the amplifier.

if you do this make sure you know the ohm rating of the subwoofer and the minimum ohm rating of the amplifier your using.

Subwoofer noise


You didn't say is your sub active or passive.If its active first check signal cables from theater system,power line of the sub, it has to be the same phase as the system.If its passive take a voltmeter disconnect the sub from the system and measure for DC voltage on the SUB output on the system when its OFF.If DC voltage is present your amp is damaged.It can also be that the preamp circuit for the sub doesn't mute the input when unit is on stand by and you hear frequency of your power supply (50-60Hz) on the sub
