View Full Version : psw 350
09-23-2002, 09:26 PM
Hi guys - I have a NAD c340 amp and just bought a psw 350 sub. I'm not sure which wiring is best - routing all the speakers through the sub or wiring the speakers and sub directly into the amp.
I have a pre out on my amp but wiring the sub directly to the pre out doesn't seem to work for me - I'm using a single RCA from the sub to one of the pre outs.
Any suggestions and/or advice would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance
For your reference, system is as follows
nad c340 amp
b&w cm2 speakers

If the LFE thing isn't working out for you, just a though but go through and make sure that that the sub is set you 'yes' or 'on' if you aren't getting any sound.
If it's all hooked up correctly and so forth and still not happy, try running your L an R speakers to the sub and then from the sub to the L/R speakers and set the mains or fronts to 'large' and sub to 'off' or 'no' and adjust the crossover on the sub to your taste.
Experimentation is the key here, cochese. Let us know how it works out.

Troy, thanks for the reply. I tried wiring as you suggested - when I ran the RCA from the LFE on the sub to the amp, I had to take out one of the links that was in the pre out socket - as soon as I took this link out, no sound. And the amp was trying to route the sound through the sub. So i just ran both speakers through the sub, which works fine, but I wonder if I am optimizing the sound.

You have a NAD Stereo amp, there is no LFE option, you must run the left/right main speaker wires to your sub, then out to your mains.
The links (jumpers) you removed, were for the pre out/main in, to use this amp as a pre-amp only with another external amp.
Ps, nice rig.....
