Canton 125 MX Sub Woofer - connections confusion


Active Member
In the process of setting up my NR609 and Canton 125.

Speakers wall mounted, come to look at the sub and ????, how do you connect, what do you connect, where ??

The Onkyo looks like it wants one connection for the sub but the Canton Sub has loads of possible connections.

I simply thought one 5m length of cable would do the job, obviously wrong.

Can anyone please offer me some advise? I know the speakers are gonna be a faf but a least I can understand how to do it, the Sub, well, looks beyond me at this stage

You need a phono to phono cable.
You connect from the LFE or sub out to either of the L or R sockets on the sub.

It's all in the instructions, if you bother to read them, tbh.

I've read 'em but to be honest I can't find anywhere in the Canton manual that says to use either left or right.

I'll read the Onkyo manual again and see if it's in there

Appreciate you help though

It's standard practice.

But I'll have a mooch for you, just in case.
