Yamaha V375 and SW


Standard Member
I'm trying to install the SW in my Yamaha V375 but I have a doubt.

Should I install it this way?


With a 1RCA>2RCA cable like this?

I mean, shall I connect the Active SW to the SW PreOut output?
Why they sell a 1 RCA > 2 RCA cable?
As it's an active sub (built in amp) I would definitely connect it to the sub preamp output of your AVR.

I believe you can use both inputs if you so wish or need to, but it shouldn't be necessary. If it will make you happy use both.

Ok, I will consider it, anyway the difference between the 2>1 and the 1>1 is less than a $1
But I cant understand why they do this type of cable, if it doesnt make sense :S

In theory, connecting the AV amp's sub-woofer output to BOTH the Left and Right Subwoofer RCA Inputs simultaneously will result in a slightly higher volume level from the sub-woofer, for any given input level and volume setting.

In practice, this difference in volume will be completely subsumed when the AV amp's auto-setup routine is run.
