Question

Will this hook up to a surround sound receiver?

My husband bought a Pioneer surround sound that already had a subwoofer. During our recent move, the subwoofer was damaged and now we are running a surround sound without the subwoofer. He's hinted for Christmas that he wants to replace the subwoofer. I am just not familiar with electronics but want to surprise him. I am wondering if this subwoofer would hook up to his receiver?? I am not sure if they hook up with RCA jacks or not. I know the subwoofer and his receiver have a line in, but I'm just wanting to make sure this would hook up to his existing surround sound. Any help is greatly appreciated!!!!!

If you already had a subwoofer for your system, you need to determine if it was a powered speaker or not. If it was powered, then this product will work. If it was not powered, then you would want to look for a non-powered subwoofer that would save you some considerable money.

It has the one rca for hookup, but also has the left - right clips, which is why I chose this one. Be aware that if your husband is a real audiophile - i.e. high quality sound, this woofer my disappoint. Please see my review which should go online in a few days after they review it.

this sub is versatile... it can take a line signal from your amp using the rca jack of the sub or it will accept speaker level from your amp using the spade terminals on the sub. the rca jack is for utilizing the power amp of the sub. the spade terminals are for using your receiver power amp.

There's no RCA ports on the back of the subwoofer, the only input is the line in or the speaker in terminals, for more information you may refer to the "Hooking Up the System" section on the operating intsructions manual using the link below.
