So I was hoping you all might be able to help out a noob. This is my first real surround system. I own the Denon 3312 receiver and Klipsch RW-12D sub. How do I connect the sub to receiver? Looking for best possible option for best sound. What cord/cable do I need, as sub did not come with any?

Thanks.

Best to run a sub cable from the subwoofer out on back of the Denon to the low level input on back of the Klipsch.

+1 on the mentioned cable. We have and use the 5m version. Very nice build/finish quality and if you have Prime membership, two day shipping is included.

And now your journey begins. tongue.gif

Okay, thanks for the help! Where do I plug it into the sub (low-level input) the positive or negative side? Or do I need a Y splitter for this?

Also can any coax cable work for this? Like this one at Best Buy (I know it costs more but could get it today!) http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Rocketfish%26%23153%3B+-+12%27+Subwoofer+Cable/9807361.p?id=1218177167987&skuId=9807361&st=subwoofer%20cable&cp=1&lp=4

Yes, this cable will work fine. FYI, just because it's more expensive, does not mean it will give you better performance. As long as you have shielded cable to protect from RFI, gold plate to protect against corrosion and it's the proper length, you're golden.

As to the need for a "Y" splitter, there should be no need unless wanting to boost the signal. Simply plugging into either the port marked LFE or if no LFE designator, either of the RCA in connectors will get you online.
