I am looking for a relatively cheap (~$100-150) entry/mid level subwoofer. I don't think I can use a 12" (it'd be too big), but 8" or 10" is good with anywhere between 100-150W of power. It should have an LFE input (that's the way my receiver would connect to it).


I was browsing at circuitcity last week, and actually bought the Polk 100" subwoofer (PSW250). It sounds okay, but I don't have anything to compare it to (this being my first subwoofer). I would keep it except for two things; instead of an LFE input, it has left and right coaxial inputs. But since my receiver only has ONE LFE output, I just plugged the cable from that LFE output into the right coaxial input. I don't think I'm doing the right thing there; so I'd like to get a subwoofer with a dedicated LFE input. Am I damaging the subwoofer/receiver in any way by connecting them like this? Am I somehow 'losing' the left signal? This is priced at $200 at Circuitcity, but can be had for less than $100 online.


Anybody have any suggestions?

Thanks very much,

Have you looked at the manual that came with the sub?


The L & R inputs are most likely provided as a convenience and you can use either or use a 'Y' adapter and feed both the L and R from your LFE receiver output.


In any event you are not damaging anything.
