I was wondering if anyone was familiar with Yamaha's SW-201? It's a 6" powered sub with both spring speaker wire connections and RCA Pre-Out connections. I'm connecting it to an RX-V667 and I only seem to get bass when connecting it in line with the front speakers. If I use the RCA connection from Subwoofer Pre-Out 1 to the Left/Mono input on the sub the AVR doesn't see it or doesn't send an LFE signal even if I manually change the setup connections.
The 201 has an AC power cord so I know it's powered, it has auto stand-by with high or low sensitivity to turn on, and it has high and low cutoff. I've set the cutoff to High and turned the volume all the way up but it doesn't seem to matter. Does the sub need an RCA-Y cable? I get bass with the speaker wire running to it but does the AVR also send the LFE channel to it then?
Like always, thanks in advance!
