Hi guys, I have ordered my first home theater system this week but it has come in small bits and so things like speaker cable for the rears and my subwoofer cable will not be here anytime soon. My no name temporary subwoofer came today and my receiver is coming tomorrow but the subwoofer cable i ordered Will not come for another few days. How do I connect the subwoofer to the receiver? As a temporary measure can I take a 2xrca to 2rxrca and take one rca and connect that to the sub out on the receiver, then connect the other end to the two RCAs at the back of the sub? I still have my two fronts ready to be wired up with existing speaker wire.
Plug the red connector at one end of the cable into your AVR's subwoofer output, and the corresponding red connector at the other end of the cable to either the L or R input on your subwoofer. (The subwoofer manual should tell you which input to use.)
