So sorry for inconveniencing you!

That's a older thread and has mainly been used by people who bought at that time to ask questions. If you didn't check that 14 page thread, you'd never know it was back on sale.

I don't see a problem with a new thread. If you don't believe a new thread should be started, then the thread you referenced shouldn't have been started either. This has been posted many many times.

Thanks for the heads up Op!

John

Sorry for bringing up an old thread but I just bought one of these subs and I plan to hook it up to a denon x2000. Is thishttp://www.amazon.com/Mediabridge-Ultra-Series-Subwoofer-Cable/dp/B003FVYXY0/ref=pd_cp_e_1 cable all I need to do that with?

The back of the denon just has one input but the back of the sub appears to have left and right rca connections. Sorry for the noob question I have just never hooked a sub up before to an avr and was wondering if I needed a splitter or something on the sub end.

Thanks in advance

The owner's manual (PDF) tells you that you can:

Connect to the “RIGHT” and/or “LEFT/LFE” inputs on the subwoofer’s rear panel ...

Is there some sort of advantage to hooking up to both inputs? Do you have a link to a cable that is recommended?

By connecting to both inputs, the sub receives a slightly stronger signal from the receiver. This could be useful if, say, connecting to a single input doesn't provide enough signal to trigger the sub's "AUTO ON " capability.

So I would buy two of those cables from amazon and a splitter for the back of the avr?

If you wanted to connect to both, you'd buy a single cable to get from AVR to sub, and a small splitter for the back of the sub.

Not trying to beat a dead horse here but I am such a noob with this stuff. Any advice on tuning this sub as far as hrz and things are concerned? Its a simple 2.1 setup at the moment with two klipsch synergy f3s and this sub, powered by a denon x2000. Should I just get the mic out and let auddessy tune what it can on the avr side and "play around" with the settings on this sub or is there a general consensus on where to set this thing?

Generally-speaking:

1. Do a sub crawl.
- Place the sub in your listening position, at roughly ear-level (when seated).
- Play test tones or some content with deep bass.
- Crawl around the room and find the locations where bass is most pronounced.
- Place your sub in one of those locations.

2. Run Audyssey.
i) Set the gain on the sub itself to "noon" to start.
ii) Run the first cycle of Audyssey (all 6-8 positions).
iii) Save the result and check the levels in the AVR's speaker set-up menu.
iv) If the level of the sub:
- is within a few dB of the levels of the other speakers, you're fine;
- is too low, lower the gain on the sub;
- is too high, raise the gain on the sub.
v) re-run ii) to iv) as necessary.

(See this post for more information: WELCOME TO THE AUDYSSEY MULTEQ FAQ AND 'AUDYSSEY 101'!)

3. Tweak if / as desired or required.

4. Enjoy.

Using a Y-Adapter really gives you nothing but another point of faliure. The L & R signals are combined within the sub to feed the single amplifier for the driver. The amp has plenty of gain to drive the driver.

Is klipsch KSW 12 better than this sub?

RW-12d
- 12" driver
- 350W continuous
- 24-120Hz +/-3dB

KSW-12
- 12" driver
- 105W continuous
- 26-100Hz +/-3dB

The Y splitter attenuates the signal and should help if you’re have trouble with your auto feature as eljay states.
