Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

new set up.

 

the powered speakers work put when i hook up the sub i get nothing.  i do get power on the sub with the green light and i can hear it reverberate

 

is the dual rca cable cord the problem?  that's all that was included. 

 

i hooked them up to the sub and the right speaker (see pics)

 

what is the problem?.

 

do i need a different cord that goes from (sub out) on my powered speaker to lfe on the subwoofer?  or do i have a lemon?

Welcome to the forum!

Sorry, your post got lost in a whirlwind of YouTube postings.

What cable are you using now?

Thanks!

Where is the gain and crossover set on your subwoofer?  The gain should be around 11-12 o'clock and the crossover around 80Hz.

When you say you can hear it reverberate what does that mean?

In the picture you posted the arrow is pointing to the red and white RCA jacks on the speaker.  That is the phonograph input for the speaker.  If that's what you have it connected to, disconnect it and connect either white or red cord to the black output on the speaker which is the subwoofer output.

so take either the red or white and put it in sub out on my speaker.......and plug the other end red/white into the sub?

 

or this

 

are you saying plug both the red & white dual rca cable both in my speaker left and right holes,  then use only the white one going to the sub to the lfe?

 

is it okay to only use 1 of the 2?

ty,

 

it works

 

i took the white and put it in sub out on my speaker......then plugged the other red/white into the sub.  

 

is it okay to have the red one hanging doing nothing

are all subs like this?

 

it doesn't sound that good at all...do i need to adjust the gain and low pass

 

it sounds like rumble in dance hall consuming everything?

 

hard to adjust volume on speaker remote as well.  it's either too much or not enough

 

is there a sweet spot for location in the room that will make it better or is this as good as it gets with a $150 sub?.

Every room is different as far as the best location and settings on the sub.  You'll have to experiment and see what sounds best to you.

Turn the gain on the sub down if it is drowning out your other speakers.  It should be at a level where it adds depth but doesn't overpower what you're listening to. 

Yes, it's ok to leave the other cord hanging although you can separate them if you don't like how it looks.
