Continuing in our series of videos about subwoofer setup, Axiom Engineer Andrew Welker gives us an idea of what you need to know about subwoofer connections. ¬†It can be confusing – XLR, Line Level, RCA . . . what’s the right one to use?
Andrew ¬†Welker: ¬†Today we’re going to talk a little bit about connecting a subwoofer to a receiver. ¬†Connecting a subwoofer is not very difficult, particularly as most home theater receivers now have dedicated Subwoofer Outputs on them. ¬†The first thing that I want to mention is that before you make any connections it’s a good idea to make sure that the power is off to the¬†receiver¬†and the subwoofer. ¬† You’re not necessarily going to damage anything, but it can cause some startling bangs and noises if things are not right.Log in
