I've been searching the net trying to solve my problem, but it seems I need more information.I am completely new to this.
Case: I'm trying to add a subwoofer to my stereo.I learned there are 2 ways to do that:
1. Adding a passive subwoofer with a crossover in it (the crossover will "choose"only the low frequencies for the subwoofer)
2. Adding an active subwoofer which has to have Line in and also Line/speakers out.
It is written on the back of the existing speakers:
High frequency (HF): 70 W (music) Impedance: 6 ohms
Low frequency (LF): 70 W (music) Impedance: 6 ohms
Sincerely speaking, I find the solution with the active subwoofer easier, but here comes another question:
The existing speaker cases has each two speakers inside, so there is a total of 4 wires going out and these wires are EACH connected into its place on the back of the stereo (so, a total of 8 wires for the two cases each of them going into 8 different sockets on the back of the stereo).
I do not know how to connect these 8 wires to the back of the active subwoofer (as I noticed, they have connections only for two speakers left/right).
I want to spend as little as possible, I want the cheapest solution, with a used/second hand subwoofer, something not very fancy.
The home stereo is Panasonic SA-PM28.For line-in it has the typical RCA plugs red and white, and for out it has the headphone socket.
Please tell me what type of subwoofer to choose (watts, ohms, active/passive) and how to connect it to my stereo.
Thank you very much.
