Yamaha builds a wide variety of electronic gear for consumers, including powered subwoofers used in home theatre applications. Yamaha home theatre subwoofers are an important part of the system, providing reinforcement for the low frequencies in music and for special effects in movies. Your Yamaha subwoofer requires only one cable for hookup, along with a power connection.

- Subwoofer cable
Plug one end of the subwoofer cable into the "Sub In" input of the subwoofer. The input on a Yamaha subwoofer will be located on the control panel of the subwoofer and is an RCA-style jack. The position of the control panel on a Yamaha subwoofer will be on the backside of the subwoofer, near where the power cord goes into the subwoofer.
Plug the other end of the subwoofer cable into the "Sub Out" or "LFE" output of the home theatre receiver in the audio system. This is also an RCA-style jack.
Plug the power cord of the subwoofer into a wall outlet or an outlet on a power strip. Yamaha subwoofers typically will use a two-prong electric outlet which will fit into any standard 120-volt AC power outlet.
Tips and warnings
- To avoid having to manually turn on the subwoofer, switch the power setting on the control panel to "Auto." The sub will automatically turn on when it detects a signal.
- Leave your subwoofer power off when connecting the subwoofer cable. This will prevent a turn-on "thump," which can damage the speaker.
