    Default speaker to subwoofer connection not working?????

    Hi,
    I bought 2 Audio Monitor 50 floorstanding speakers and am trying to connect it to the PSW10 subwoofers.
    However, their is no sound from the speakers but the subwoofer is working fine.
    Can anybody help me with some suggestions?
    Thanks.

    P.S: My Setup: The subwoofer is connected to RCA audio out jack to the T.V and the speakers wires goes into SPEAKER OUT of my subwoofer.

    If that's a powered sub and has speaker level input, you'd be better off running the speaker wire outputs from the TV to the sub...IF the TV has them which most don't anymore. Otherwise, you aren't going to get any output to the Monitor 50's as the powered sub doesn't have powered outputs to drive them. You are going to need some sort of basic AV receiver and preferably one with a dedicated sub output.

    Hi, you have to have an amplifier to power the speakers. The TV only provides a line level out, not a speaker level out and if I'm not mistaken the sub you have has a built in amplifier, which is why you are getting sound from it.
    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.
