I know this begs a noob question... but take a look at the back of this receiver:

This is the Harmon Kardon AVR7300 receiver...


Below is the back of my SVS PC-Ultra Sub:

Easy enough to wire the all the regular speakers... but why isnt there a White/Red two wire OUTPUT connector for the sub on the back of the receiver?


The sub has a Right/Left channel input near the top left... so why no Right/Left output on the receiver? The only sub "Out" I see on the receiver is the purple colored output near the bottom right?

I'm guessing here... do you just pick either the left or right channel for input from the receiver?


What would happen if I got one of those "Y" splitters and plugged the single output from the receiver into both the L and R inputs on the sub?

That would be fine, but with that sub it isn't necessary. You can use either input if you like. Also read your manual some companys like Velodyne recommend which one to use.

The purple preout on the receiver:

and Fig 1 on page 4 of the SVS manual:
http://www.svsubwoofers.com/manuals/PCUltaonline1.pdf


The SVS manual states:

"There are a variety of ways to configure your

new sub. Usually, a simple mono, shielded 75 Ohm A/V RCA type cable

(a.) is used to take the subwoofer output of your DD/DTS surround sound

receiver (b.) and feed the low-level input of the sub’s amp. There is no

need to “split†the signal going to the PC-Ultra. You can feed either one

of the two amp inputs, it doesn’t matter, right or left."
