I have a Samsung LED TV that i want to connect to a YAMAHA POWERED SUB.

What are my options ?

I want to feel the low end as well as the sounds from my tv speakers.

i thought of RCA to Y ADAPTER to SUB

 

The Samsung T.V manual says that i have can have sound from the speakers and low end from the SUB together ,

but i cant seem to find that option on my TV ,what can i do about this ?.

I can't see audio out, apart from headphone out and you don't want to use that. Think you're stuck. Pretty rubbish really, older TV's always had RCA out...seems phasing them out!

I'd probably just buy a sound system, then yamaha sub plugs into that. A cheap HTIB would be a upgrade over TV speakers anyway.

When I search for that model number of TV, no such TV appears to exist.  Do you have a link to your TV at Samsung's web site?

 

As for the subwoofer, do you have the set it came with (YHT-494), or just the subwoofer?  If you just have the subwoofer, you need something with a line level subwoofer output, as it does not have any other type of input.

Search for F510022.

I can't see any analogue line level out from the TV, only headphone...which you wouldn't want to use.

Think it's best he bypasses the TV audio section altogether and just buys a cheap HTIB.

Thanks.

 

The problem with that idea is that it seems that there is no way to get the audio out from the TV if he is using the TV tuner.  None other than the headphone output, that is, which is not a good output to have as one's only audio output.  But if he is not using the TV tuner, then it would be a fine option, assuming he has the money for it.

 

If the TV can be returned, it might be a good idea to exchange it for a model that has a better audio output.

What about HDMI ARC?

I did not see ARC mentioned in the manual, though I only searched it, and did not read it.
