Do I need a sub for HiFi?
A subwoofer is a requirement for a HiFi setup. Unless your speakers have built-in subwoofers, you can’t reproduce the lowest frequencies with authority. And it’s not about making the sound bass heavy, it’s just filling in the lows so that it sounds like your speakers have more low end extension.
How do I connect my subwoofer to my stereo?
If you are using your subwoofer with a home theater receiver, the connection is simple: Just run an audio interconnect cable like this one from the receiver’s subwoofer output to the subwoofer’s line input (pictured above). If the subwoofer has an input labeled LFE, use that one.
Can I connect subwoofer to pre out?
Just plug the subwoofer cable into your receiver’s subwoofer pre-out and the other end into the Y-adapter on your sub (which is connected to the left and right RCA line-in inputs). Then make sure the power plug is connected to an outlet (hopefully in a surge protector) and you’re finished.
How do I install a subwoofer if I don’t have a preamp subwoofer?
If your receiver doesn’t have a preamp output, you can treat the subwoofer like another speaker and use speaker wire to connect it to the receiver’s speaker terminals designated for the front left and right speakers.

Where should you place a subwoofer?
Try to keep the sub within 4 or 5 feet of the left or right front speakers. Which leads to my next bit of advice, don’t put the subwoofer in a corner. Granted, there are significant advantages to corner placement, mainly that in a corner the sub will produce more bass, with lower distortion.
What cable do I need to connect subwoofer to receiver?
The low-level input on your subwoofer will usually require a single RCA cable to connect to your AV receiver. Although you can buy dedicated ‘subwoofer cables’, you don’t have to buy one of these if you don’t want to. Any RCA interconnect will work.
