I'll start by admitting that I know very little about home audio...


I've purchased an Denon AVR 1610 and a Acoustic Research HD510 5.1 speaker system.


I think I might have made a mistake by running all of my speaker wire before researching or purchasing the above hardware. I ran 12awg to the location for the sub (a 25' run). The receiver has a single RCA type jack for the sub. The sub itself has two (left/right) RCA type jacks for "LINE IN", two RCA's (in/out) for "LFE" and two sets (left/right + -) wire posts for "SPEAKER LEVEL IN".


The manual for the sub describes them as:
  • SPEAKER LEVEL IN (L and R): These terminals are used for making

    connections with speaker wire.
  • LFE IN: LFE (Low Frequency Effects) inputs are used to carry additional

    low-bass information from a Dolby Digital source. Use the 90° RCA adaptors

    (included) to connect the LFE output from the receiver.
  • LFE OUT: This output is internally connected to the LFE input. Use the

    90° RCA adaptors (included) to connect an additional AR subwoofer. The

    type of connection is often called a “daisy chain.”
  • LINE IN (L and R): These connections are used for bass audio signals

    when an LFE input is not available. Use the 90° RCA adaptors (included)

    for these connections.


Can I make use of the 12awg wire that I've already ran to connect this sub? If not what would be the preferable connection method for this sub/receiver with them being 25' apart?


Thanks in advance for the help and sorry for the ignorant question.

Thanks for the quick reply, CottyGee.


I've since found more than one post on sub setup for dummies. I aplogize for not having found that info before posting my question and thanks to those of you patient enough to reply and to newb questions like mine and posting setup guides.


Guess I'll go with something like this:

That's exactly what you need for the sub - a decent RCA cable.
