Hello Guys

My Subwoofer has a different input then my reciever!

Is there something which can connect the two?

Anyone??? 

 

What model receiver is it?

 

And either take meds or go for a walk.  No one needs to respond to you immediately ;)

 

Do you not have the entire Edifier C3X 2.1 setup?

If they work like they look like they are supposed to work, I would think so.  Never used something like that.

 

Btw, that AVR has assignable Surround Channels, so you could wire the Sub into one of them and change it in the system setup it looks like.

Don't care at all about the why you're spazzing out.  Just relax.  Double posting is against the forum rules anyway.

 

Edit:  Save up for a better subwoofer anyway too.

Thats understandable but please do not create new threads asking the same question, simply bump your old one.

Hello Guys

My Subwoofer has a different input then my reciever!

Is there something which can connect the two? 

 

Youll need a mono power amp, the sub is passive and the RCA pre-out only supplies signal, not power. something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Audio-Full-Frequency-Switchable-Fosi-M02/dp/B07L4VMCRD/ref=sr_1_11?keywords=mono+power+amp%23&qid=1560798197&s=gateway&sr=8-11

(youll need a 1x rca to 2x rca to hook it up.)


Do not ask me about headphones, I don't have a clue.

No, that looks to be an active crossover network for a subwoofer. you need a power amp as the receiver handles all the crossover shenanigans

Why wouldn't using one of the Surround channels and re-assigning it in the System not work?  It's a powered channel, no?

It could, it might be worth a try. But the chanels arent really designed to output tonnes of power in low octaves, so its a bit risky if the transistors arent up too it.

I'd argue that sub isn't going to need much power tho, with it's 45w rating. Worth a shot before buying an amp.  If you're going to spend money, buy a decent active sub.

True, im used to big subs lol. Tbf it would probably use under 20W before starting to distort and have cone breakup and what not.

Sort of, you can choose which extra 2 channels you have on top of a 5.1 system, but not reroute the LFE (sub channel) to a different output, from what I can see.
