In this video I discuss how to match and connect a power amplifier to passive loudspeakers in the context of live sound reinforcement. Although active speakers are all the rage these days there is nothing wrong with good old passive speakers, and they have the advantage of only needing a single connection, as opposed to the signal and power connections needed on an active cabinet.

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! http://www.ebay.com/usr/onlyfactorydirect http://www.ebay.com/sch/m.html?_odkw=&_ssn=onlyfactorydirect&hash=item4d303e3000%3Ag%3AJccAAOSwBLlVHyR2&item=331521863680&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=p2046732.m570.l1313.TR11.TRC2.A0.H0.Xsubwoofer.TRS1&_nkw=subwoofer&_sacat=0 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

Need more bottom end in your system? Sick of wimpy kick drums and feeble bass guitar? An active sub could be the solution you've been looking for!
