Klipsch Subwoofer Connect To Denon Amp

7 posts in this topic

Briefly my system has:

1) 2 Sony SS-B3000 Bookshelf Speakers - Front Wall Mounted http://www.amazon.co...wms_ohs_product

2) 2 Polk TSi500 Floorstanding Speakers - Rear http://www.amazon.co...anding+speakers

3) Klipsch SW-350 Subwoofer - Rear Floor http://www.amazon.co...sw350+subwoofer

4) Denon AVR2112CI Integrated Network A/V Surround Receiver http://www.amazon.co...+AVR-2112CI+amp

Problem: What is the optimal way to connect the Subwoofer to the Denon Amp? Why a problem. Well, the Subwoofer Sound In on the back of the Denon Amp is for Fiber Optic and the Klipsch Subwoofer does not have a Fiber Out.

Purpose of the System: I listen to jazz while working on the computer and therefore have the system set up in stereo mode; not for traditinal 5.1 Channel AV.

See attached snippets.

Thanks for any help and my apologies for such a stupid question. Although I am "old" to computers, I am "new" to AV.

You will want to connect it to the latter. Connect the LFE out on the Receiver to the LFE input on the Klipsch Subwoofer. That way, whatever subwoofer processing on the receiver feed the subwoofer. I hope that helps.

No more help required. Thanks for everything.

My mistake was in thinking the subwoofer output on the Denon Amp was optical. It was just good old RCA, so I bought:

1) 25 foot of cable http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10236&cs_id=1023603&p_id=2683&seq=1&format=2

2) Cable splitter http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10236&cs_id=1023603&p_id=6261&seq=1&format=2

I found what I needed over at MonoPrice.

Once again, sorry to be such a PITA. smile.gif

Oh, thanks Nem. Really good to find this forum.

Hope I don't annoy you folks too much in the future. I'm an audiophile with lots of OCD. :unsure:

I think that is a requirement to being any type of an Audio guy. It all depends to what degree!

And yes monoprice i great for all kinds of stuff. The wall mounts of theirs I have used are easily worth the money along with most of their cables.
