Yamaha audio-video receivers are equipped with different connection jacks for hooking up a variety of home theatre equipment, including a powered subwoofer. The sub connects to the Yamaha receiver with a dedicated cable to deliver deep, low-frequency bass that adds to the home theatre experience. A powered subwoofer contains its own built-in amplifier, so the component will not make demands on the Yamaha receiver.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Place the subwoofer in the room where it won't be in the way, but at least four inches from the wall. Walls can absorb low-frequency sub signals, which will diminish the bass effect.

  2. 2

    Insert the plug on one end of the subwoofer cable into the "Sub Out" jack on the back of the Yamaha receiver.

  3. 3

    Connect the plug on the other end of the cable to the input jack on the back of the subwoofer.

  4. 4

    Plug the subwoofer electrical cord into a wall outlet and switch on the sub. Adjust the volume control knob on the back of the sub to the desired level.

Tips and warnings

  • Unplug the Yamaha receiver from the electricity when connecting the subwoofer cable.
