    Red face How do I hookup this RM-1000w Subwoofer?

    I recently got my hands on two Polk RM-1000w Subwoofers
    and i'm not sure how to hook them up. theres 5 connectors
    sorta like this:

    (+)__( B)__(+) [key] + = red, - = Black, B = Blue??
    (- )_______(- )

    Anyways theres a small wire going from
    one of the positives to Blue
    and another wire going from negative to negative
    thats how they came when I got them.. Its just pretty confusing to me.. Should I take off these small connection wires?

    Also does anyone know how much RMS / Peak they handle?

    In audio, blue is usually a remote turn-on wire, meaning if the blue wire gets a current, the amp/radio/whatever will turn on. I have no experience with the speaker you talk about, so this may or may not be the case.

    You might want to contact Polk directly on this one.

    Call Polk for the info. But, you will not use the blue post. Connect your right speaker out on the receiver + - to the top red and black post and the left speaker out on your receiver to the other + - posts. Then run wires off the same posts to the appropriate right/left speakers.
