Re: Passive Subwoofer Connection

Are you using the Magnat speakers as your front left and right speakers?

Are you absolutely sure all your connections are positive to positive and negative to negative?

Re: Passive Subwoofer Connection

Try a process of elimination. Disconnect all the speakers from the receiver, just leave the subwoofer connected and see if the receiver kicks out.

Allready did, but otherwises - have disconect sub, but leave all five speakers. Nothing happens, but don't like sound without low frequencies

But when i connect all together, kicks out receiver approx on volume meter 27...

Subwoofer alone don't kicks out receiver. I think he dont liked the chain wiring...

If receiver have sub-out, its means i have to use it... Are u agree?

I can try to adjust settings of speakers... maybe that helps...

Re: Passive Subwoofer Connection

Doug may be right, the speakers are 4 -8 ohms and the receiver is rated at 8 - 16 ohms. The problem may be an impedance issue.

Re: Passive Subwoofer Connection

I'm not sure what the solution is to get things working. You could try resistors and see if it works.
