subwoofer with Mini Torii
08/26/10 at 13:57:35
 
i have my Omega deep hemp subwoofer connected to the preamp-out on the Mini torii  but as soon as i try to increase the volume it immediately clips or overloads the sub. Is there a solution to this or another way to hook up the sub?

Doesn't the sub have a gain control that can be turned down?

Yes .  volume all the way down to start. can barely turn knob before sub starts to overload. Had previously turned it up to 10 to 11 oclock. Now can barely nudge it before bass gets very boomy.
Was wondering if there would be another way tpo connect

Have you tried connecting  your sub to the speaker terminals?

No. Afraid to do it that way. I am not electically inclined and always afraid of blowing up the amp or damaging the speakers

Yes  Its very safe.  I've seen people wire subs using the speaker level input several wrong ways, and no one to date has ever hurt a thing.

What Zigi said. I've run my sub from the outputs of my CS for years.
Give it a try---

Yes, I encountered same problem when first connecting my HSU sub to the pre outs of the mini torii,  like tooo much gain.   Then I made 2 pair of very cheap 18 gauge solid core magnet wire and just ran them off the torii's posts into the imputs on back of sub. The bass signal instantly tightend  up and all knobs had nice  useable range again. I use a sub to help out my hornshoppe speakers lower range.  Mark

since i havnt had any luck with various connections and cant figure out why the sub will not work connected directly tot eh speaker inputs of the Torii , i connected a separate amp to the pre amp out on the Torii and ran the speaker wire from the amp to the sub and it works beautifully. Would rather not have the extra equipment in the mix but cant figure out why it dosnt work directly from the Torii speaker inputs.

"Torii speaker inputs"?
You must mean outputs?

Try this:  Connect just one high level output from the mini-torii to one of the high level inputs of the sub.  Does it work?  If so, verify that the other mini-torii output and other sub input also work when just that one channel is connected, then connect both channels, but reverse the polarity of everything (so you have the red mini-torii outputs connected to the black sub inputs and the black mini-torii outputs connected to the red sub inputs).
