How do I hook up a powered subwoofer to a tube amp?

You just hook the RCA outs with interconnects to your powered subwoofer or another amp dedicated to that subwoofer. It does not alter the signal or sound to the speakers. We used it with a Single-Ended tube amp driving a pair of Ferguson Hills FH001s and a small Sunfire subwoofer. This Subline works, of course on T-Amps, as well as other amps.

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 you hook up a powered subwoofer to an RCA out?

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 do I connect the powered subwoofer to the amplifier?

You will connect the powered subwoofer to the amplifier using RCA cables (assuming your passive speakers are connected to your subwoofer), and then connect the powered subwoofer to the wall outlet to provide it a power source.

How do you connect a subwoofer to an LFE cable?

Connect Using the LFE Subwoofer Output. The preferred method of connecting a subwoofer is through the Subwoofer Output (labeled as SUB OUT or SUBWOOFER) of a receiver using an LFE ( an acronym for Low-Frequency Effects) cable.

Can you plug a subwoofer into a receiver without draining power?

A subwoofer that does not have the “Subwoofer Out” should have “speaker level” input which can also be called “high level” input. With the high level input, you can connect to the speaker jack on your receiver without draining power from the amp.

How to connect a preamp to a subwoofer via RCA?

Second option is to split the output from the RCA connector outputs on the preamp using a splitter as Steuspeed suggests and use two interconnects, one pair going from the splitter to the RCA inputs on the amp and the other pair going from the splitter to the line-level inputs on the subwoofer.

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.

How to add a subwoofer to a pre amp?

This can be accomplished by using a second pre-out, splitting an existing pre-out (rca splitters) or using a dedicated subwoofer out if your preamp/integrated/receiver has one. Another option is a dedicated crossover, but these can be tricky to work with, and quite expensive.

Can you cross a subwoofer over a main speaker?

If you try to cross over a subwoofer to a higher level of sound that the main speakers are capable of, then there is a risk of sound reproduction. To avoid the hassle, make sure that you’ve eliminated the signals to the main in that region before you start playing it. Otherwise, as I told before, there will be reproduction of sound.
