Subwofer install


Recommended Posts

I want to install R-12SW to my home stereo with Yamaha AX-596 amp. It does not have a subwoofer output.


Can this be done? Yamaha recommended a Kicker KISLOC 46KiSLOC adapter. his looks like it is primarily used for car stereo installations.

This may or may not work.

Remove the two metal jumpers on your receiver. Connect two RCA cables from the Pre Outs to the Line In inputs on your subwoofer.


If you try this and don't have any sound from your receiver it's because there's nothing connected to the Main Ins on your receiver.  Some receivers operate like this. 


So, the way you can do it is connect two Y adapters to the Pre Outs of your receiver, connecting one end of each Y adapter to your sub and the other end of each to the Main Ins of your receiver.  Hopefully that makes sense!
