Hey guys. so I have a 2-channel receiver model STR-DH130. I have two floor speakers hooked up to it and I want a sub woofer. my friend has one he can give me but it doesn't have the speaker terminals so I can't hookup the sub to receiver and speakers to sub so it'll all work. Is there anyway I can use this sub or do I need one with the speaker terminal?

You will need a way to get signal to the sub. Find a sub with speaker in and out termnals.

1. If your 2 channel receiver has headphone out, you can buy a headphone to RCA cable.
2. Get a speaker to line level converter, this would convert your speaker level to line level which you can use to hook up your subwoofer.

1. Headphone to RCA cable



Connect the headphone end to the AVR, connect the other end to the Subwoofer line in.

2. Speaker level to Line level converters

Connect another set of speaker wire to Speaker B of AVR, connect the other end to the converter. Connect RCA cable to converter and the other end to the subwoofer.

Bear in mind that using the headphone jack might silence your speakers. If not, then this is feasible.

If your receiver has no B outputs, then you can simply connect to the same speaker outputs on the receiver as the speakers, or you can connect at the speakers' inputs. Both of those options would represent a parallel connection.

Well I have the main speakers hooked up as speaker set A...so can't I hook up the sub to speaker set B and wouldn't that work?
