First off I would just like to state this my first post and first time setting up a HT so I am a bit uninformed.
With that being said, I recently purchased a home with pre wired surround sound.
I have installed my speakers, including the center, and everything is sounding great from the receiver. The problem is with my subwoofer.
The builder used RG-6 cables, which are black and have a steel braid just inside the outer coating. I purchased a definitive subwoofer and am going to run them with the LFE setting. Noticing that I need to have the ends connected, I made the mistake of trusting the guy at Radio Shack. Here is what I was told to purchase:
Twist on TV coax F connector
Adapter for RCA (phono) male to f-connector (coax) female.
We stripped the wires and have the copper exposed and placed into the connectors. Unfortunately I cannot produce any sound from the subwoofer.
Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong? I apologize if I am missing details. Please ask any questions and I will respond to them with my lacking knowledge of this system. Thank you all of your help!
