If you dont have it then you should acquire it from your car manufacturers customer service phone number, your local dealer or the internet. First, take a look at the back of your subwoofer. Or better yet use a amplifier with zone 2 preouts because that will usually be a downmixed 2-channel output. Ensure that each cable is plugged into the same color output jack. I can only play tv sound through my soundbar through my Roku. So now what is my solution for this? Seems you know your stuff maybe you can help me out with this problem? Tape up your scotch blocks to stop them rattling around and to keep the cables bundled up neatly.
Hi Josh: What do you hear with the headphones now? Here is one on eBay that should do the trick. Getting them online can be a bit unreliable and expensive. If you want to upgrade your sound system in your car by adding a sub woofer or speakers powered by an auxiliary amplifier without having to get a new head unit then hopefully this should help you : I decided to keep my standard head unit because it looks well in the car, is less likely to attract thieves than a shiny after-market unit and it is a factory upgraded unit anyway and i find it gives pretty good audio quality, it works with the steering wheel controls and has bluetooth and aux-in, so an after-market unit wouldn't offer a substantial upgrade. You should see a similar jack on your receiver, and 99% of the time of it will be in a group labeled pre-out. Plugging in and Hooking up Your Subwoofer If you have a subwoofer cable and a Y-adapter, this is the optimal setup for your sub. Avoid cable tiying the extension wire to solid things, as it will make removing your head unit difficult in future.
Ensure that all of the cables are plugged into the correct color jack. The cheapest source I can find on the Internet is.

If you have a pair of red and white or even red, white, and yellow composite cables, just pick a color and let the other wires dangle.
You just take the front left and right speaker pre-outs from it. Before trying to hook up your subwoofer, you need to identify the connections it has. The component cables will be labeled with three colors: red, green and blue. Refer to to get your subwoofer connected. You are basically parallel-connecting the 4ohm speakers with the Low-Line converter. Assuming that the converter's inputs are 4ohm themselves, that leaves 2ohms of resistance for the stereo system to power to.
Hi Biff: Which unit did you purchase? If you're not using a subwoofer cable, a composite audio cable will work up to about 10ft. If you don't have this output, you won't be able to connect your sub this way. Plug component cables into the component output jacks on the rear of the device that you are connecting. Otherwise you can just undo the plug from the converter and then the back of the head unit. There are a number of other makes available too. I have a couple of grand + worth of stereo equipment that I would like to use.
There is a really long thread on this topic over on crutchfield where a couple of electrical engineers explain in much more detail than I can. Your converter should come with wiring instructions so you will just need to match up the wires and splice them with the scotch blocks, use the pliers to press the metal splice bar so you can be sure of a good connection. Or whatever channels you want which have the best quality dialogue on them. It is typically purple in color, but that's not always the case. Not all stereo systems can power to 2ohms without simply burning over the circuits. I would expect that they're all based around the same circuitry regardless of brand.
Don't guess the code as you usually only get a few attempts before it will permanently lock it'self!

Have you encountered any issues with your system after doing this? There is only front and rear speaker input but the amp also supplies a woofer? Their Golden Ratio, Constant Q Stranding technique controls resonances by using a timeless mathematical principle that can be traced back to ancient Greek theorists and the Great Pyramid of Giza. Here's a picture of a receiver's preouts. Before I can really help you, I need you to tell me or confirm the make and model of loop driver you have so I know what jacks it has on the back. If you dont have the code and you unplug your stereo it will not allow you to listen to it as it will assume it's been stolen. He also serves as the associate editor for The Inquisitr. Notice the one labeled Sub Woofer.
Enjoy your Subwoofer and all the Bass it has to Offer That's all there is to it for connecting your powered subwoofer. As i say its not really influencing the signal to the rear speakers, i doubt it makes any difference you could detect with your ears even at high volume. Cardas Audio has been bringing a unique approach to cable and connector design since 1987. I connect a headphone to it through a Digital-to-Analog audio converter. At the back of your stereo there is most likely one big plug which incorporates all of the inputs and outputs to and from your head unit. Thanks in advance if you can help Frank. If you followed the steps above, you've properly hooked up your subwoofer.
It does this at the expense of audio quality so unless your headlights are dimming enough to bother you all a cap will do is make your stereo sound worse. Also no name brands even more so. He is also the founder and operator of Indyposted, an online newspaper and blog that focuses on the same subjects he writes about. I already had mine but i certainly wouldnt pay more than £5 for the dealer to look it up on a database. I initially thought that behind the glove box would be the best place but i ended up cable tying it to a heater pipe that runs down the centre console. .
There may be more, but this is all you'll need to properly connect your subwoofer. I had been doing this since 2008. When you have a rough idea where you will be mounting your converter unit, solder on the extra wire you'll need to reach your head unit cables and insulate them with electricians tape or heat shrink tubing Okay, now you'll need to match up your head unit wiring with the wiring required by your converter. Have a cup of tea while you warm up it was -2 Celsius all day when i did this! If you don't have one or don't want to get one, you don't need the Y-adapter; just use the left or right input by itself. They are labeled Left and Right line-in inputs, but for a typical home theater, you only have one cable coming from the receiver to the subwoofer.
