    Default Rm-1000w

    Hi my first post I need help, recently buy a RM-1000W passive subwoofer, my av receiver is a sony 85w p channel subwoofer amplified out and passive out, I connect my polk RM-1000W to the amplified out and nothing happens, the signal is there but is weak not movement in the outside cone but the interior 6.5 barely moves what I can do? a more powerful receiver? a external amplifier for the woofer? I have a sony explode 12" connected to the sony a/v and hit awesome what happened to the polk? any diagrams for the correct wiring? thanks for read this.

    This sub needs to be connected at speaker level or "passive out" on your receiver. The way you have it connected is for a power sub. Hope this helps.

    He is also looking for a users manual for the RM1000.

    PM'd me but I looked everywhere NADA.

    Maybe 1000+ eyes are better than 2?

    Try hooking the RM1000 in parallel with the main front L and R speakers following this diagram: If you have only one RM1000, ignore the blue binding post.
