Yes, two (easy) ways to hookup a powered sub in a 2-channel setup. 1) Run the speaker wire from your amp to the sub, then another set of speaker cables to your speakers.
How do you hook up a subwoofer to a 2-channel radio?
If your preamp has left and right outputs, use two RCA cables for these. The subwoofer combines the channels inside. If your preamp has left and right outputs but there’s only one on the sub, use a Y combiner adapter. These can be had for $5 or so.
Does a 2-channel radio need a subwoofer?
While just one subwoofer is enough to enjoy movie sound in 5.1 or 7.1 (or casual music on a Bose SoundDock), two subwoofers (or full-range loudspeakers) have always been required for serious Hi-Fi reproduction of stereo music.
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 use pre out for subwoofer?
A common usage of the pre-out is with a subwoofer. Subwoofers have their own internal amplifier, and it is often beneficial to use a pre-out connection in this scenario. Many subwoofers and other speakers will include their own amplifier. Known as Active Speakers, these should use a pre-out connection.
How do I connect my subwoofer to left and right input?
If the subwoofer’s ‘Line In’ uses RCA cables (and if the subwoofer out on the receiver/amplifier also uses RCA), simply plug using an RCA cable and choose either the R or L port on the subwoofer. If the cable is split on one end (a y-cable for both right and left channels), then plug in both.
Can you wire a subwoofer to the both right and left channels?
Can you wire a subwoofer to both right and left channels? – Quora. Yes. You can use the speaker level inputs and tap the red right and white left wire. You can also use the RCA sub out or pre amp sockets and connect both red and white to the sub.
What phase should I set my subwoofer?
Typically, though, phase is left at 0° for most applications. While seated in your listening sweet spot, play music with bass content that is familiar to you and then have someone switch the 0/180 phase switch on the sub to 180-degrees. This will let you determine if the bass sounds louder in your seating position.
How do I connect my subwoofer to my AV Receiver?
Using a subwoofer cable (RCA cable), connect the subwoofer to the AV receiver by running the cable from the receiver’s subwoofer output to the subwoofer’s line input. Klipsch subwoofers can be connected via the LFE channel, the white RCA connection, or in a stereo pair by using both the white and red RCA connections.
Is it worth having 2 subwoofers?
Very often two or more smaller subwoofers will outperform a single larger unit. With more available headroom the bass quality will increase and there will be a sense of effortless bass due to reduced compression, lower distortion and greater dynamic range.
Is adding a subwoofer worth it?
Adding a sub to larger speakers also makes sense — in fact, all but the most humongous speakers benefit from adding a sub. Here’s the best part: Adding a sub isn’t just about more bass. With a great sub the system’s dynamics rock harder, and soundstage depth and spaciousness improve.
Can I use two different subwoofers?
Yes. You can run two different subs. It’s optimal to run two of the same because in your case, the weaker sub may reach it’s limits before the stronger one.
How do I connect subwoofer to speaker level output?
How to Connect a Subwoofer to Speaker Level Outputs

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.
How do you connect a subwoofer to a powered speaker?
All you have to do is connect your powered subwoofer’s line level input (or LFE input if there are two line level inputs) to the T1’s smart subwoofer output using a cable with RCA connectors on both ends.
