How do I connect a preamp to a subs AMP?

The simplest way is run the pre out into a splitter, then to the main power amp and the subs amp. Most likely O.K. I would check the input impedance for the amp and the Sub, as they get paralleled with a simple splitter (Y-cable), unless the splitter has resistors to isolate the two sets of inputs.

How do I hook up two subs to a mono amp?

By wiring the two subs in parallel (see the diagram) youll show a 2-ohm impedance to the amp. Mono amps are built for just this kind of situation, so youll get maximum power output from your amp investment. Check the diagram below for how to hook it up. Two 4-ohm SVC subs — a great place to use a mono amp. Wiring flexibility is the key here.

Can I use a 2-channel amp for subs?

This is a great place to use a 2-channel amp. When you wire the subs as shown in the diagram below, the total impedance will be four ohms. A bridged 2-channel amp can provide plenty of power at a reasonable price. Get some good subs and a good amp and let it rip!

How to connect a stereo amplifier to a subwoofer?

And another way is to use two set of RCA cables, which leads into a Stereo hook up. Now, connect the sub output to the input port from the amplifier. In most of the modern sterol amplifiers, there is a port that says Subwoofer Output.

How do I connect my LFE subwoofer to my Receiver?

Connect Using Stereo RCA or Speaker Level Outputs. Sometimes youll find that a receiver or amplifier does not have the LFE subwoofer output. Or it might be that the subwoofer doesnt have the LFE input. Instead, the subwoofer might have right and left (R and L) stereo RCA connectors.

Can I use any subwoofer with my Receiver?

But you might also come across a subwoofer that uses stereo RCA or speaker wire connections. If your receiver or amplifier has enough variety, you should be able to handle most any subwoofer out there.

What cable do I need to hook up a subwoofer?

If your subwoofer has a single RCA subwoofer input jack, you may want to pick up a “Y” RCA adapter to combine both receiver channels on the output side into a single mono RCA plug. Subwoofers with 2 (stereo) RCA jack inputs will need a standard stereo male-male RCA cable.

How to connect a subwoofer to a 2 channel stereo amplifier?

We have two different ways to connect a subwoofer output to a 2-channel stereo amplifier. We will describe both. First of all, figure out all the connecting ports (input and output) of both of the devices. Find out the speaker wire that’s given with either the sub or the speaker. Connect two of these using that speaker wire.

What is the best subwoofer for 2 channel music?

JL Audio has a great sub, but for 2 channel music, JLs are an earthquake, and RELs are a part of your speakers, and they dont let themselves overpower the speakers. Take for example.... Revel Ultima Salon 2s.

Can you connect a subwoofer to a preamp?

Some subwoofers have left and right inputs. If your preamp has left and right outputs, use two RCA cables for these. The subwoofer combines the channels inside. If your preamp has left and right outputs but there’s only one on the sub, use a Y combiner adapter.

What is a subwoofer and do I need one?

A subwoofer is necessary to fill in the missing information of these smaller, bass-limited speakers. The thinking is simple— take the big driver out of the main speaker boxes and move it to a discrete location away from view in the form of a subwoofer.
