I just purchased the Yamaha NS-SP1 800BL surround speaker package, which includes the SW012 subwoofer. The subwoofer has a single line (RCA) input while the Sony STR D350Z only accepts speaker wire connections. Another problem, the STR D350Z does not have a designated channel for a subwoofer. It has the following.


Front R & L (A & B)

Rear R & L

Center


Plus RCA ins and outs for video. Is it even possible for me to hook up this subwoofer to my Sony receiver???


Subwoofer manual: http://static.tigerdirect.com/pdf/Yamaha-YST-SW012-Subwoofer-Manual.pdf


Receiver manual: http://static.tigerdirect.com/pdf/Yamaha-YST-SW012-Subwoofer-Manual.pdf

* Note that the receiver manual includes instructions for the DE505 which has a subwoofer input. The D350Z does not have a designated subwoofer input.


I'm willing to try anything. Help is very much appreciated!!


Thank you,

The DE505 is the only receiver in this line with a subwoofer output labeled Mix Audio Out. This, and others in this line, is a 5.0 receiver. There is no sub pre out or bass management and you don't have high level inputs on the sub.

I already saw the manual. Basically, yeah, you're hosed. There may be some gadget that can help, but I don't see how. You still won't have good bass management. Time to upgrade the receiver or get a sub with speaker level inputs. I suggest the receiver. You should be able to find a decent used one in your local area. Sign of the times.
