Hi,

I have "Denon AVR-X2000" receiver and "Mortin Logan MLT-2" 5.1 speaker system with me. I need a cable to connect from my receiver to speaker system. Could somebody please suggest the cable?

Your subwoofer just needs a RCA-ended coaxial cable like this:

http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10236&cs_id=1023603&p_id=2680&seq=1&format=2

Or this, just not as fancy:

http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10236&cs_id=1023601&p_id=619&seq=1&format=2

in whatever length you need (they have them from 3ft to 100ft.)


Speakers use wire. You can get them at Home Depot cheap, or order online:

http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10239&cs_id=1023902&p_id=2748&seq=1&format=2

Again, you can get it in different lengths. 14 gauge is usually fine. If you have to run the wires fairly long, you might bump up to 12 gauge.

Thanks a lot for your suggestion. Could you please also let me know how to connect the subwoofer cable? From receiver end, I know there is only one connector but at subwoofer end, there are two. L and R. how to connect it and how it works?

You can put it on either the L or R (there are two for certain types of stereo receivers, but yours has just the lone sub out.) The manual on page 10 states that it uses the R input, but I'd be willing to bet the L will work, too.

If you want, you can buy a y-splitter with one RCA female and two RCA male connectors (Monoprice has them) and hook to both the L and R, but it's not necessary.
