I'm a new boy to the forum and my first post is a cry for help.
I bought a Sony strde 495 with a set of Pioneer ssp40 speakers to hook up to my DVD player. Thought I'd be smart and get the sub seperately - mistake no 1. The sub I managed to buy (ebay) was I thought a compatible piece of kit to go with the Pioneer speakers a Pioneer s-dv88sw, ie. max watts, colour etc. Soon discovered the phono lead from the receiver does not fit any connections on the back of the sub! mistake no 2. The only connections on the rear apart from the speaker terminals appear to be a small black connector block (female) that looks like a mini scart and a small square shaped multi pin connection point. I dont have instructions for the sub, so I can't give a more accurate description on the specs.
The question is can I buy a suitable cable that will fit the reciever's output and the totally different sub input? or will I have to completely shelve the sub and delve into the finances to get a suitable woofer? A pity because the sub is brand spanking and looks a nice bit of kit.
Any advice gratefully accepted
