    Is it possible to connect this subwoofer directly to the sub out from either a TV or DVD player.
    Although it is a amplified sub the connection cabling supplied is in the form of a 1/8th mini jack, which obviously coonects OK to the sub, but is the wrong type of interconnect for either the TV or DVD.
    Is it possible to get an adaptor for this?
    Any suggestions appreciated

    Hi Mike and welcome to the Subwoofer forum. :)

    I think you may be hoping too much from the Tivoli sub. It is designed to add some extra bass to the little radios of the same name.

    But with such a small drive unit (cone) and only 20Watts of power available it isn't going to shake your walls. Try to think of it more as a special purpose woofer rather than a true subwoofer. Used with the radios as intended it will probably add some warmth to the reproduction. Out of this context it is probably just not worth trying to use it with ordinary speakers.

    But if you can find an 1/8" jack to phono adaptor (or suitable conversion cable) you might have some fun experimenting with it. But don't push the little sub too hard. It is not an AV subwoofer in any shape or form and was never intended as such. :)

    Regards
    Nimby
