Just use one, they are summed inside all subs. You can use a Y connector and connect to both for some extra gain, but then again you can also just turn up the volume knob.

PS. I have a Sub200 in my computer 2.1 setup; it's OK, especially for the $50 I spent.

Just bought Jamo sub650 and i do not know how to set the phase ,0 or 180 ?
The next thing has to do with sub`s volume ,with me previous sub i had the volume to the middle (10inch sub) and was ok ,now with Jamo i have to set it almost full to have the same feeling ,how can it be Jamo has 12inch unit and better amp
I have to say that is getting better as it plays ,i hope after 50-60 hours to give me the bass it is supposed to give

PS My AV is Onkyo 807

Have you played with the SW level control on your receiver? I had to make adjustments to mine when I went from a Klipsch RW-8 to a Jamo Sub300.
post #65 of 102
ofc the AV has Audyssey ,so SW level is calibrated ,i have also tried some adjustments manually ,it gets better day by day ,i will see how it goes after 60-80 hours of playing
I guess Heco sub25A(10inch) is a great sub ,thats why i can not see huge difference with Jamo (12inch) ,or maybe closed type SW does not play as good as a SW with ports

A good subwoofer with proper setting should just come in when it has to,without taking over,but if you like more bass,just put up the volume.the sub650 is a very loud SW.Maybe put your sw volume up full,then slowly turn it down until your happy with it.

I'm looking at the S413 5.1 system. It comes with a sub200. Any idea of how it will perform in a small/medium apartment living room?

I will try using both and see how it goes ,i have tried it connecting Heco not to the AV but to Jamo ,it was not bad ,i will try connecting it to the AV i will run Audyssey and i will post the results.

Odd thing happened the other day....I got bored....so I decided to open up my Sub300 to see what it looked like inside. I took the driver out. I also unscrewed all the screws that hold the amp but it didn't budge. Acoustic foam on attached to the top and one side of the sub but not the other side....nice. So...I decided to add some polyfill to the situation. I have a newborn @ home now so I haven't had the chance to crank it. Somewhat disappointing to see that Klipsch errrr.....Jamo only foamed two sides of this thing. I guess that's what $150 gets you.

hi guys,i just got a used sub550 and it did not come with the ac power cord,anybody know where to buy one.also what kind of cable do you use for the LFE connection.do i need a Y-adaptor for the sub or just the receiver end of the cable or both.
post #71 of 102
The sub550 just uses a standard computer power cord. Those are easy to find. You should be able to find on at any hardware store, radio shack or local computer shop.

you may have one lying around the house from an old PC or monitor.

You can use a cable with a single RCA jack on each end.Connect it to the left/LFE plug on the subwoofer. If you feel like it you can also buy a Y adapter and plug that into both left and right inputs on the sub but it isn't necessary.

here is the owners manual if you haven't downloaded it yet.

thanks afro,went to my local HT store and bought a power cord for eight bucks.when vanns gets the pioneer back in stock i will buy a sub/LFE cable along with new speaker wire.i think 12 gauge will work just fine.the sub,ever hooked up to a very cheap receiver and wired into the red/black speaker lever in posts,still shakes the walls.i am impressed with it.and cant wait to get the correct receiver and cables to see what it can really do.
post #73 of 102
I Must say the sub650 i bought got better with a couple of weeks break-in.I love the depth it can go to.Great for music too.....it weighs 50lbs!
post #74 of 102
I'm still in love with my D 6 Sub. Does anyone else have it and use it in their HT?

Same here ,man it is loud ,and goes deep , walls will turn to gel any time now
post #76 of 102
i have to keep turning the volume down on my sub550 or it really shakes things on the wall.i am impressed with it so far and cant wait to get it broken in and my new pio vsx919ahk receiver here and hooked up.it was listed as used but it looks brand new,no marks on it and it came in its orig.box and plastic wrap. it took about two weeks to get my s506 hcs3 system broken in.
post #77 of 102
I adjusted the c/over from 100hz down to 50hz in my reciever,and WOW,i can feel it in my chest now.Brilliant if anybody likes really deep bass to go with their music,but really awesome for HT.I thought it was deep at 100HZ but at 50 no comparison,This sub was built for really deep bass.I guess thats why its matched to the THX D500 SET!

yea it goes unbelievably low in my 20m sq. room.Ive had a few subs and this one im delighted with.Ive only recently adjusted it through the reciever from 100hz c/over to 50hz and it sounds like my pals BK sub!Thumpingly low bass!Although i got it with the c605 speaker pack,i think it retails at about €500-€650 in eu.
post #79 of 102
Maladjusted,if i upgrade from my s506hcs3 to a c-series speaker system do you think the c605 with the sub550 is better then the c607.i dont need the extra bass from the c607's but i love the way the c607 looks.i know you are getting the c607's,let me know how they work out with that bad ass sub650 toy you have.

thanks.

It seems to blend in better with the c607s @ 40-50hz.It was a bit overpowering with th c605s,even though they went genuinely down to near 35hz.So i would say the bass is all across the front,2 mains & sub,but it feels like its all around,even from surrounds!.It literally shakes the walls and anything loose,so i just turn the vol down a tad and that works fine.It also depends on source quality & movie soundtracks with the likes of DTS-HD MSTR/TRUE-HD. of which are much more detailed and louder than standard DD/DD-EX.

I have a Jamo i300 2.1 speaker system with iPod dock.
(2 satellites, one sub+amp integrated, iPod dock and RF remote.)

I just purchased some Jamo speakers: C401, C400SUR, and C40CEN thanks to information from the forums. I can hardly wait for them to arrive. But I still need a sub. Hopefully i can find something for my budget.

Well its been about 3 years since I posted in this thread, but Im glad to see all of you enjoying your Jamo!

To the poster who commented on the break in of their sub, yes I agree, a break in of the subwoofer if its new is necessary, I did notice that it got better with usage, it was so stiff from the newness!

I have upgraded to a matching Jamo E8Sub.5 I just bought yesterday new (glad it could be had new for a 3-5 year old sub).

To my knowledge it uses the same Woofer and Amplifier that my E7Sub uses, but the box is different. The E8 is supposed to go down to 24hz while the E7 only goes to 40hz.

Yes, 16hz made me spend $228! but I believe it will be worth the money =)

Plus now I have a complete 5.1 Matching set, just need to get the E855 Towers and I can do 7.1! xD

Hi - I have posted this comment over in the Pioneer MCACC AMP/Speaker setup and the Jamo Speakers Owners thread - but then I found this thread so thought I might post here also (the Mod's might kill me - Oh well!! ).

I own a Jamo 650 Sub - with Jamo 608 speakers (5.1).

I think my volume (gain) control on my Sub may be stuffed??

I am having real a problem trying to set up the Jamo Sub with the AMP. First I was thinking it was the Pioneer MCACC setup - then the Sub position in the room etc. I have only had the Sub about a month and this (Christmas) being the first time I've had an opportunity to set things up. It is also the first time I have owned a proper Sub.

First I had the Sub at the back of the room and wasn't getting the results I wanted, so I moved the Sub to the front of the room facing the listening position.

Setting the phase to 0, crossover to 150, gain (volume) to about 10-11 o'clock.

Ran MCACC again - it said volume on Sub is to low. Turned the volume up to max - again Sub is to low. Moved the Sub forward - still Sub is to low.

Got my iPod out and connected it to the Sub - sound is coming out of the Sub but I don't appear to have any volume control using the volume (gain) knob on the back of the Sub. There is no difference on minimum to maximum and being a volume control I would expect some difference.

Am I right to assume that there should be and increase and decrease in volume when turning the knob?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Anybody on the fence about buying a sub650 well.... http://www.whathifi.com/Review/Jamo-D500-THX-Select-2/ i know this is a complete set-up review,but it shows what kind of quality this sub is backing up and at what price!

This might be a bit late as i dont come to this thread often,but did you try set your speakers to small on your AVR,as a large setting,you should set the no/yes/plus setting to plus.The circular blue light on the top right front of your sub is the volume control,also check the on/off/auto switch on the back,i think most people set it to auto,like myself.

Anyone know what the continuous power is on the Sub 200 or Sub 250, can't seem to find that info anywhere.
post #90 of 102
Hi guys,

I recently scored a Jamo D6 sub with a blown fuse...(had copped a little water over the powerboard and blown the fuse, and box has been slightly damaged...And I mean slightly lol)...

I replaced the 2.5A fuse with a fast burn one and I keeps blowing it as soon as their is a signal. Without a signal it will not blow.

Anyone else have the same issue>>

Also who owns a D6 Sub, are you happy with it??

It looks like it will move a lot of air, I hope I get it working..

Any help would be greatly apreciated.

Thanks.
