Question: Can subwoofers use RCA cables?

A subwoofer cable connects an audio amplifier to a speaker designed to reproduce low-frequency sound signals up to 100 Hz. For a subwoofer with an RCA connector, any RCA cable will carry the signal. But some manufacturers add special features to an RCA cable and label it subwoofer.

How do you hook up a subwoofer with RCA cables?

If the subwoofers LINE IN uses RCA cables and the subwoofer out on the receiver/amplifier also uses RCA, plug it in using an RCA cable. If the cable is split on one end (a y-cable for both right and left channels), plug it in the R and L ports on the subwoofer.

What type of cable is a subwoofer cable?

RCA The subwoofer output connector often utilizes an RCA connection, a type of cable designed to pass audio and video signals. On some older AVRs, a direct wire connection where the subwoofers speaker wire connects directly to the AVRs subwoofer out speaker terminal is utilized.

Can I use component cable for subwoofer?

Youll be fine. But most folks have plenty of RCA cables. Any RCA or coaxial type will work.

Why does a subwoofer have a left and right input?

Since the subwoofer is responsible for low bass tones (aka its sole purpose), it requires a transmitter of low-frequency audio waves. The left and right channels are combined in an LFE cable to allow for a singular cable to evenly disperse the signals to the subwoofer.

Is there a difference between RCA and subwoofer cables?

An RCA cable connects a subwoofer to a receiver with an audio signal sent to the standard left, right, and center channels with a coaxial connection. A subwoofer cable typically contains the same wiring but has additional shielding added to reduce the speaker hum and provide greater sound clarity.

Are all subwoofer cables the same?

Subwoofers do not require any specific form of audio cabling. The specific type of cable needed to connect a subwoofer to an audio system will depend on the audio input jacks built onto the subwoofer itself.

Can you use RCA for LFE?

1/LFE (Low Frequency Effects) connection is a dedicated true . 1 channel to be used for Surround Sound applications. It requires a RCA-to-RCA cable connected between your .

Why do subs have 2 inputs?

Dual input allows the subwoofer an extra sensitivity adjustment. Normally, it would be enough to use a mono LFE subwoofer signal from its processor. By using both inputs with the same mono signal doubles the subwoofer sensitivity. This means that there is now only half the signal strength to drive it to full output.

Is LFE an RCA cable?

More often than not, a subwoofer will use a singular LFE (low-frequency effects) input cable to connect with its receiver. However, another method is using the left and right inputs (RCA connectors) in which low frequencies are sent through the right and left channels.

Is RCA the same as LFE?

The LFE channel is a mono signal and is already filtered before the signal is sent to the subwoofer. Almost all subwoofers will be equipped with an LFE mode. In almost all cases, a single RCA subwoofer cable would be the correct choice for your home theatre system.

Why does my subwoofer have a left and right input?

Does it matter where you place a subwoofer?

In most cases, its actually better to not hide the subwoofer. Many vendors recommend that you place your subwoofer in a corner. This placement reinforces the bass significantly. However, in some rooms, you can get too much reinforcement of your bass in the corner, and you end up with boomy bass.
