I posted this in the subwoofer thread and was hoping someone on here may be able to help.
I have a Swans Subwoofer that I just picked up for a reasonable price from a friend. It appears to be in good condition - but I know very little about what to check to see if all is well with it. I am not very familiar with subs. This thing weighs quite a bit. It says SUB-250 on the back and has the model Swans Sub 200A in red.
The sub is shown midway down on this web page: http://www.swans-europe.eu/subwoofer...087573ab0.html
The trouble is figuring out how to hook it up as I don't have instruction manuals for it.
I checked out the Swans (Hi Vi) website and it has no instructions available for download and no information on my model. They have a similar model sub on the site called the 200A, but the connectors look different and they are on the sides rather than the back.
I will be using the sub with a Cambridge Audio 840A integrated amp and Vienna Acoustic Haydn Grand speakers.
I may switch to using the sub with a Pioneer SC-25 HT rcvr if it works out better with that.
The Cambridge Audio Int Amp has RCA jacks for inputs and one single preAmp output pair on the back.
It has connections for Speakers A & B - I have 2 pairs of Haydn's hooked up to it at the moment but can take one out if required.
On the back of the Sub are the following connectors
1. Input from preamp - these are RCA connections
2. High level input from Amp - these are speaker connections
The sub also has a volume control knob, a sub cut off frequency knob, an audio / video equilizer, and a phase switch.
Question: Does the preamp rca Left and right connector hook up to the sub - seems obvious - just wanted to confirm. What if I have to use the preamp output from the CA 840a to use a power amplifier - how would I hook up the sub using this output ?
Question: What do I need to connect to the High Level Imput from Amp speaker connectors on the sub ?
Is this for when I decide not to use the Input from Preamp ?
Question: I don't recall seeing a pair of connectors on my SC-25 that lead out to a SUB. There is a single RCA output on the SC-25 that says LFE - to subwoofer. So how would I use the sub with the Pioneer SC-25 rcvr ?
Any help appreciated.
