Single analogue pre-out for subwoofer


Standard Member
I have an oldish (but much loved!) Denon stereo receiver (DRA-F101) with a single analogue connection (labelled "pre-out") for a subwoofer, standard RCA phono connector type - same as CD, DVD/AUX inputs, etc. There are no optical or coaxial connectors on the back of my receiver. I am thinking of buying the Wharfedale SW-150 or SW-250 subwoofer, but am not sure how I connect these subwoofers to my receiver. Does the single pre-out limit my options (if so, to what?) or is it simply a matter of ensuring I use the right cable? Looking at the inputs/outputs on the SW-150, I not sure how a single cable would work. See page 11:


There are 4 line level and 4 speaker level inputs.

Many thanks for any advice!

Just connect it to either the left or right 'line input' connector and it should work absolutely fine.
