A good subwoofer should disappear into the room, integrating with your music and movies instead of sticking out and being overly powerful. With this video you'll learn how to place a sub in your room and adjust the settings to blend seamlessly into your system for a better listening experience. We also discuss the different hookup methods you can use to connect your subwoofer to a receiver or processor.

How to Hook up a Subwoofer and get best Subwoofer at Best Price

There are 2 main types of subwoofers active and passive. There are also 2 ways to hook them up, not all having the ability to do both. This particular active powered subwoofer has both and I will show you how to hook it up. If your receiver does not have a subwoofer out and subwoofer does not allow for speaker pass through hookup then pick a tape output and hook up your RCA plus to the left(white) and right(red) output of receiver. Most of the time you will get a signal out from the connection which runs all the time without having to press the tape button to run your subwoofer. Here is a link to a great deal on subwoofers! These are the best deals for the best quality subwoofers. No need to spend hundreds and thousands of dollars. This way you can get 2 for less than the price of 1 subwoofer! Must have a 5.2 or 7.2 for best hook up/install
