Please Help. Connecting amp to receiver

Hello Gentlemen,

I'm trying to connect an external (not pre-amp) amplifier to my receiver to power the aurasound bass tranducer & having no success. The AVR is Onkyo TX-NR636 & it has 1 pre-out. The amplifier inputs are RCA cables or 3.5mm.

Have Y cables, RCA to 3.5, both male & female, RCA sub cable (believe it's called RCA coaxial) standard RCA, 3.5 to 3.5, & others.

Could someone please explain how to do this correctly? Was under the assumption we had administrators who helped from time to time which is why I paid for a membership

The 636 has (2) sub pre-outs, so simply connect one RCA cable from one of them to the sub amp.

Also, AVSForum is member supported so assistance comes from other members regardless of whether you have a paid membership or not; however some questions will go unanswered if no one wants to respond.

"JD" - Call 585-645-1006 or email for AVR selection and pricing discussion 8am - 8pm EST daily (incl Sat/Sun)

Ask me how to get a FREE HEOS 1 HS2 wireless/Bluetooth speaker.
