got an idea of delivery costs?
#3
The £15 includes delivery. DHL would be around £8. std parcels may be cheaper but there is no tracking.
#4
i see, do you have any idea if this would work on a hifi, need my bass better?
yes i am an amateur!

would depend on your hifi i guess. this is essentially a large cone in a box. it has spring clip terminals on the back for speaker wire connection.

Pic of back for connectons please?

umm i have a sony hi-fi kinda like...

the speakers have little wires that you clip into the system and out pops the music?

ummm. i assume you only have 2 speaker connections at the back. so im not sure how you would add a sub unless you shared a connection with either one or both speakers.

is there no coaxil input -
just speaker inputs

just speaker inputs


its a passive sub as i stated, passive subs only have a speaker type input.
#12
cheers
#13
ahhh i see, so the subwoofers also have a wire yeah? or do you plug a speaker into the sub somehow :S?

sorry about all the q's!
#14
ok. the sub connects like a normal speaker. many hifis , amps, some dvd players, have a speaker output for a sub. just connected to a normal hifi, it basically will work like a big speaker

Some subs are active, and have a built in amp. those subs require a power supply and usually a rca plug input or coax
#15
ah ok, so a wire from the sub goes into one of the speaker inputs in my hifi? yes? lol
and speaker sharing doesnt create any future problems somehow does it?

well, i use to do it on an old sony hifi i had. i connect 2 bigger speakers along side the already substantial speakers it came with. it ran them quite happily without any problems. I cant say the same for you tho. it might be absolutely fine. it might not. but personally i wouldnt have a problem hooking it in if it were me.
#17
okkk right so theres a wire on the back of the sub which plugs into my speaker input?
technology confuses me :(

the sub has the 2 spring clips shown above. you clip the speaker cable into the sub and then usually you have spring clips on your hifi too with you clip the other end of the speaker cable into.
#19
one of the wires from my hifi are permantley in the hi fi and i tried taking the other one out, but when i do theres no sound, will the subwoofer complete the circuit and make it work?

might be easier for me to tell you if you can pop a pic up of the back of your hifi

If you have 2 standard speaker outputs like this diagram and wire the sub like above.

It could possibly work, it will depend on the ohm of the speakers, the subwoofer, and the stereo's allowance.

If you could find these im more then happy to do the math.

I had mine connected as above running:
The speakers are 50W 6Ω, and the sub is 110W 4Ω.
My results were:
Parallel - worked fine, no volume difference, and no noise or distortion.
Series - like said would be quiet, so a bit of changing balance due to 10ohms on the right and 6ohms on the left channel, and sounds alright, no loss in quality again, and also probably a better bass feedback, however just cant crank it up as much, but then again my stereo alos shouldn't blow up!

sorry about quality was using my e71!
#23
the sub is 3Ω and i think around 200w. total for the 5.1 was 500w rms.

your speakers look wired wrong. each speaker takes a red and a black. you seem to have nothing plugged into the bottom.

Cheers for the help mate.
Found out all the specs on amazon...

if you can make any use of it itl be highly appreciated :D

yeah i experimented on your speaker sharing thing and thats why theres not one at the bottom normally there would be one each.

still works fine though listening to it atm

sub will prob connect and work fine then, are you noticing less volume as it is now?
#28
nope all works fine.
just asked my mate though he said because theres no difference in volume i might have blown the amp?

lol.no. if you suffered less volume or heard a big pop, then, you might have blown your amp. but if there is no volume loss then all is fine.

lovely jubly, one last question, will my hifi be powerful enough to handle this sub?
#31
if the speakers are 6ohms which amazon says and the sub is 3ohms then you will end up with:
parallel: 2ohms & 6ohms (two channels remember, left and right)
series: 9ohms & 6ohms (two channels remember, left and right)

now most stereos usually have an allowance of 6ohms to 16ohms and thus you would need to wire them ideally in series. Which is what i use to do, and i found it to have better bass then parallel anyways, and meant that there was not the wrong load on the stereo and thus should not blow or affect the stereo, but you might find a small sound level difference due to the ohms difference, but generally not much

and to answer that one...yes, it will, just if the output was more you might get more bass response from it, but thats the same for most speakers/amp(stereo in your case)
#33
:) so i just hook it up like in the diagram you loaded and all will be ok?

thats parallel you need to do it in series. which is:

okies then. if your happy. :)

i'll pm you details to pay. if you could pm me your address and contact number for dhl.

it honestly is, when i did it, it was working out the impedance (ohms) and whether the stereo would blow or not after long usage, but i used it like that for a while and no problems...then brought a av reciever and seperate 5.1 speakers :thumbsup:
