QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

By Dion H from Dallas, TX on April 30, 2012
I am considering adding an outdoor subwoofer to go along with my (6) AP850 speakers in my cabana. My intenion was to have a sub that I could wire from my Onkyo Receiver's Subwoofer Pre-Out. So I guess my question is "if I am going from my receiver's subwoofer pre-out can it then be plugged into the OM-SUB200 Outdoor Omni Subwoofer?" Thanks in advance for any reply.
By Customer Service - Q&A on May 1, 2012

Answer:
Hi Dion,

The OM-SUB200 is a passive sub-woofer that needs external power. You have a couple of options; both involve adding at least two or three of the OM-SUB200. The first option is to add two OM-SUB200s to the system while purchasing an SMP250 dedicated Sub-woofer Amplifier to power the two subs. This would be connected directly to the Onkyo Preamp Sub-woofer Output. The second option is to add a SUB200 to each pair of the AP850s, connecting the Sub to the speaker output of the Onkyo or Speaker Selector. You would then utilize the internal crossover of the SUB200 and connect the AP850 pair directly to the sub. The Onkyo would then power the Sub and AP850 as a sub sat system. You probably could get away with utilizing two SUB200s wired into two pair of the AP850s with the third pair connected by themselves. Please let us know if you need further clarification.

By Ethan from wisconsin on September 26, 2012
can I connect this subwoofer by itself to my reciever? Will I only need on speaker wire to do so?
By Customer Service - Q&A on September 26, 2012

Answer:
Hi Ethan,
Yes you can! This outdoor sub is an OSD crew favorite sub because it has a built-in crossover that enables you to run it with your standard receiver with regular speaker cable. This subwoofer also has speaker connections that allow you to connect it in line between the speakers and the receiver so it doesn’t take up any more outputs on the receiver. This is what we call a "sub-sat" system (subwoofer- satellite). Take a look at the diagram on the product page. You would connect your left and right channels from the receiver to the OMSUB200. From there, simply wire your left and right speaker pair.

By Jason from Wildomar,CA on July 1, 2012
i purchased 4 os790's for my back yard and a pair of ap650's for under my patio cover powered by a sherwood RX-5502. I read that for best performance to run the 790's as satellite speakers off the sub. My question being is it necessary to run all 3 sets of speakers this way or can I run just the omni speakers that way?
By Customer Service - Q&A on July 2, 2012

Answer:
Hi Jason,

I would start by connecting everything you have already purchased. I believe you will be pleasantly surprised how much bass you will get from the OS790 Omni speakers which feature 8-inch woofers versus the OM-SUB200 (8 inch as well). I would recommend utilizing our OVC100 Outdoor Volume Control for each pair of speakers. The RX-5502 features a second zone output so you will want to connect Speaker A and Speaker B to the OS-790 pairs and then Speaker C to the AP650s. That will allow you to play background music for the OS790 speakers (with the additional adjustment for volume if you add the OVCs) while listening to a ballgame from the tuner of the receiver in your patio area. I’m not sure adding the OM-SUB200 will give you enough bass.

By Scott from houston on March 15, 2012
I am trying to decide between the OM-SUB200 and the OM-SUB300. I see that the low end range on the sub200 is 50Hz while the SUB300 is 20Hz. I have 4 RS660-OM rock speakers. With the Sub200 i would run one pair as sattelites off of the sub and the other directly. I am using the SW-RX5502 receiver to a SSVC4 speaker selector. How much difference will I hear between the two subs? Is a sub amp required for the SUB300? Please provide some advice.
By Customer Service - Q&A on March 15, 2012

Answer:
Hi Scott:
Our recommendation would be to add a second OM-SUB200 and run two sub sat systems, combining a pair of the RS660 for each sub. The net result would be two, three-way sub sat systems. I am a little confused about how you are using the SSVC4 since the SW-RX5502 features four independent outputs that can be split to A&B for zone 1 (your outdoor system) and C&D for your second zone. If you are looking to add volume controls, why not add an OVC100 per each sub sat system possibly connected to the A&B output from the receiver? You can then use the SSVC4 connected to the C output on the receiver (if you are still looking to drive additional zones). I believe adding a dedicated OM-SUB200 to each pair of RS660-OM is more practical than adding the OM-SUB300, which would require purchasing our SMP250 subwoofer amp to power properly. Please let us know what you think. Maybe tell us about the rest of the system you want to connect. Note: you have 30 days to decide if you can use everything you purchased from us.

By Jose Caceres from Miami,FL on July 3, 2012
I have a Technical Pro 72-1502U Digital Hybrid Amplifier with 4 Bose speakers, this amplifier have 2 mono RCA (Subwoofer) outputs. Can I connet (2) two OM-SUB200 Outdoor Omni Subwoofer, one for each pair of speakers to the direct RCA subwoofer ouputs.

By Customer Service - Q&A on July 5, 2012

Answer:
Hi Jose,
The OM-SUB200 would not connect directly to the RCA Preamp outputs on your amplifier. However, you can connect a SUB200 in line with each pair of BOSE speakers because it has a direct Speaker-level pass through (four conductors in and four conductors out). You would connect the first sub from Speaker A output with a 4-conductor 16-gauge speaker cable (like our CL3 16/4), then run a 16/2 from the OM-SUB200 to the pair of BOSE speakers (one to the right and one to the left). I recommend trying one OM-SUB200 to see if it’s effective. We have a 30-day performance guarantee so if you are not satisfied, you can return it. If it is effective you can add the second one. I’m not sure about the BOSE speakers which are 4 ohm. If you find the first sub effective then you can add the second OM-SUB200 for Speaker B output to the second pair of BOSE. We are currently back-ordered on the OM-SUB200 but are hoping for an end of July delivery.

By Steve from Charlotte, NC on July 5, 2012
can I run the sub with a single left or right input from my amp?. I have no option at getting more than a single 2 conductor wire to the installation site? Thanks
By Customer Service - Q&A on July 6, 2012

Answer:
Hi Steve,

What speakers are you planning to use with this OMSUB200 or which speakers do you currently have in your outdoor area? This subwoofer features a speaker level input, four conductors, right and left. It also features an internal low pass crossover. The four conductor outputs let you connect your existing full range pair of speakers to the subwoofer output, eliminating the need for an independent connection from the receiver. Are the wires accessible that you already ran to the satellite speakers?

how do it connect this to a denon avr 1912?
By Customer Service - Q&A on January 30, 2012

Answer:
Hi Bryon,
You can connect it directly to the Denon receiver from the Zone 2 output, which is listed as "amp assigned." This way you are using the internal power from the receiver (see page 68 of the Denon owner's manual). Then you can connect two full range speakers to the subwoofer to create a sub-sat system (check page 83 of the Denon manual for additional information).

By Mark N from Conroe, Texas on May 24, 2012
I am considering purchasing the OM-SUB200 Subwoofer. I currently own a YAMAHA RX-V467 Receiver that is connected to two Polk Atrium outdoor speakers. I am attaching a JPG of the speaker connections from the back panel of the receiver for more clarity. You will note that instead of wiring the OM-SUB200 as shown in the OM-SUB200 owner's manual, my receiver provides for a subwoofer cable ourput plug which appears to also provde for the necessary crossover frequencies. So... my question: Is there any way that I can use the subwoofer plug-in connector on the receiver to connect the OM-SUB200? If so, how? If not, what else should I buy to make this all work? THANKS!
By Customer Service - Q&A on May 25, 2012

Answer:
Hi Mark:

The best and most effect of use for the OMSUB200 would be wiring in line with your Atrium Patio Speakers providing you have access to all of your wiring. I am assuming you are using this 5.1 AV receiver to power the Stereo pair of Polk Audio Atrium Speakers and you are looking to add a subwoofer. If that is the case you would want to connect the OMSUB200 directly to the Right and Left speaker output of the Yamaha Receiver you are currently using to connect to the Polk speakers. Again if possible you would want to connect the OMSUB200 with a four conductor 14 gauge speaker wire from the Yamaha to the right and left input of the OMSUB200. From the outputs of the sub you then run speaker wire (16/2) out to the Atrium Speakers. This subwoofer is a passive unit that would be powered by the Yamaha Receiver. The internal crossover of the OMSUB200 would separate the Low pass directing them to the internal sub driver while passing the High pass frequencies to your Atrium speakers. This becomes a sub sat system with the Polk now more efficient not having to reproduce the low frequencies. Now if you have an issue wiring the Atrium speakers from the SUB, the other option involves adding an external amplifier to connect to the sub output that is featured in the page of the owners manual you sent. That is a pre-amp signal that needs connect to an amplifier in between the sub and the Yamaha receiver. Checkout the AMP120 which you could bridge mono for 160 watts and connect to one of the inputs of the OMSUB200 (right channel +/-). Please feel free to contact me at tim@osdaudio.com if you need further clarification.

I am considering purchasing two of your products, 1) the OS790 HD 8" True 360 Omni Ground Speaker and 2) the OM-SUB200 Outdoor Omni Subwoofer. However, because of my application, I would like to see more technical specs, specifically a diagram/picture of the wire connectors for both the speakers and subwoofer. I looked on line for a users manual, but could not find one. Do you have anything available for me to review?
By Customer Service - Q&A on April 2, 2012

Answer:
Hi Steven,

We are placing an image on both the OS790 and OM-SUB200 that will feature hookup for the Sub Sat system. The OS790 has a Frequency Response of 42Hz to 20kHz and the Sub200 is rated at 50 to 250 Hz. The Sub Sat system allows more focus by the OS790 to produce frequencies above 250 while the Sub is dedicated to Low Frequencies only. Having a dedicated subwoofer in line with the satellite speakers provides more total output, which is especially important for wide open spaces.

By Doug from Evans Ga. on November 22, 2011
In the advertisement it said just to plug my current speaker wires into the subwoofer and the crossover will do the rest. I only have a red and a black wire coming out of my receiver now and on the bottom of the subwoofer is three (3) sets of wires. What do I do with the other 2 sets of wires? Thanks if you can help. Doug
By Customer Service - Q&A on November 22, 2011

Answer:
Doug:

The optimum setup is to wire directly to the OM-SUB200 subwoofer with the four conductors coming from the Receiver/amplifier (L & R +/-) to the input of the sub. It is best to use a single four conductor cable for this connection.The internal crossover directs the low frequencies to the internal sub and sends the high frequencies to the the left and right (+/-) output which you connect your satellite speakers. Use a single 2 conductor cable for each of these connections.This makes the two satellites more efficeint not having to produce the low frequencies. The ultimate Sub/Sat system.

Note: If you already have your satellites connected through an output A from your reciever/amplifier you can then connect the OM-SUB200 to speaker Output B and not worry about the two outputs of the sub. The Satellites will produce bass to their rated frequency response (typically 50Hz). The OM-SUB 200 will just enhance the lower Bass .

Total Transformation
April 18, 2014
This is one of those things that I ask myself, "Why did I not do this earlier?" Adding this sub to my two Omni satellites totally transformed the sound into a deep, rich and beautiful sound system. Now the backyard has the best sounding music of the entire house including my big Bose system in the living room - I can't stop listening to it. Here's the tip: Use 16-4 cable to make adding the sub easier to mate with your satellites - keeps you from running a ton of single split pairs. Also, AND THIS IS CRITICAL, make sure that you are consistent with positive ( ) and negative (-) connections from your amp to your speakers. If you get this wrong, the sub is weak and unexciting. Get it right ... and you are in for a real listening treat. I love it. Get it.
Pros:
Cables clearly marked for easy hook up. Shipped the same day and had it in two. Great rich deep base.

Used in outdoor 5.1 Surround set up
May 20, 2013
System started with 6xSonnace Mariner 100 speakers, have since upgraded front speakers to Definitive Technologies AW6500 to improve base...they helped but not as much as I'd have liked. So replaced "sonnace" with the OM-Sub200 It's an improvement. I found burying the sub did improve it's base. I'm not using the included crossover as the DT's "like" the low end. This sub won't give you a real THUMP but it will help smooth (and improve) the low end sound. Overall I'm happy with the purchase; Given my outdoor systems set up (wiring) I would have like to added a powered (which the SUB200 is not) but changing the existing wiring was not in the cards, or my current budget. The system is located within a walled in backyard with 15-20' walls on all sides. Have 150" outdoor screen for viewing and pool for cooling!

Neighbors now hate me!!!
March 26, 2013
This subwoofer rocks!!! I installed this with 2 sets of OS450 Omni 4.25" Omni Speakers w/ 30ft Direct Burial Audio Cable, and my backyard thumps and rocks. This was definitely a great addition to my backyard. I originally purchased 2, but once I laid out the pattern with just one, I couldn't imagine living next to me if I had 2, so I returned the second with no hassle what so ever. The return process was simple, efficient, and quickly processed. I will also say that the crossover function works great. The OS450 Omni 4.25" Omni Speakers don't handle bass so well and tend to distort. This sub with crossover does the trick. I can now crank up the sound extremely loud and not have any distortion at all. Additionally, I have this buried right up against my house so the bass and sound reflects nicely off of the brick and fills the yard completely. Secondly, not sure if pro or con, when I am inside, I know if I forgot to turn the outside sound system off because the bass rocks inside as well.
Pros:
Easy to install. Awesome sound Great crossover functionality
Cons:
NONE!!!
Best Uses:
Anywhere outside

Great Sound
March 1, 2017
I bought another one OM-SUB200 for the backyard and a set of OS525 speaker to hook up to the sub. This set was purchased last year also. I liked them so much the new set completes the back yard with pure surround sound. I also purchased a AMP300 to run the setup. The backyard now rocks around the pool and bar table. This is a great sub and the os525 speakers running off of the sub is th way to go.

Serviceable for the price
September 28, 2013
Used in conjunction with a pair of OS525 speakers and its works okay. The wiring was simple and the the installation went quick. I had hoped by using this set up to get more treble and bass separation then what I end up hearing. The sub woofer puts out too much treble and the doesn't take the bass out to the other speakers which sometimes muddies up the sound. For the price it works most of the time.
Cons:
Speaker protection screen is thin for limited protection

Base! What base?
September 27, 2013
I have my outdoor rock speakers about forty feet apart with the sub in the center. This was the set up prior to the subwoofer installation. Using a 600 watt amp pushing a sirius radio, I could never turn up the volume loud enough to get any base. With the Sub installed I was amazed on how the crossover would allow the rocks to concentrate on the highs at high volume with out any distortion. I was disappointed however, on the lack of thump from the sub. There was atleast a 50% difference in the lows but just not there (base) enough to be called a SubWoofer. All wiring was to spec.
Pros:
Easy set and hook up. Great Crossover network.
Cons:
Very little base.
Best Uses:
It's an outdoor speaker!

A Subwoofer That Does What It Is Supposed To Do
June 19, 2013
This sub does exactly what it is supposed to to do. It won't rattle windows or compress your chest. It provides the low end that is nearly-always missing from outdoor speakers (especially "rock" speakers, which I have) and that is what I needed done. It works brilliantly in that capacity. The system I installed the sub in is the front yard/porch system and it now sounds nearly as good as the back yard/patio system which has considerably more expensive Paradigm speaker installed. I did bury the sub (which was a mega pain-in-the-a$$) as suggested and that really help bolster the low end. Recommended.
Pros:
Supplies decent low end.
Cons:
Has to be buried for optimal performance. Crossover frequency not adjustable.
Best Uses:
With any outdoor speaker with a low end roll-off of 120hz.

Outdoor Omni Subwoofer
June 11, 2013
Purchased this to compliment 2 5.25" rock speakers around my patio. Hook up was straight forward. Make sure that you save the hook up details since the paper labels on each wire will be non-readable after being in the elements. Sound at low levels was good and since the sound was coming from 360 degrees you could not really determine the source of the sound. At louder levels the speaker really filled in the bottom end for the 2 other speakers. I think you could find a better subwoofer but not at this price.
Pros:
Price, appearance, ease of installation
Cons:
none at this price
Best Uses:
compliment existing outdoor stereo spekaers

Omni 8" speakers
May 8, 2013
I love the sound dispersion produced by the Omni speakers. I decided to augment my sound with the Subwoofers, and the sound fills the yard (likely annoys neighbors) so I am pretty happy with the product,. I have used Omni (formerly Paramount speakers used in Disneyworld) for over 20 years and would recommend them as the best outdoor sound you can get.
Pros:
sound is everywhere, unlike most "directional" speakers
Cons:
does not separate the bass as well as indoor stereo. Still get a "rattle" playing Cirque de Soleil or Lady Gaga in the Sub, which should not happen. I am going to place them deeper in the ground to try and resolve
Best Uses:

Not bad for $100!
April 30, 2013
This sub weighs very little so the driver is not much and can be overworked really quickly. I have found that a simple 30 watt amplifier provides as good overall performance as my 2x200 watt amplifier, so you won't need much to make it thump. I burried this about halfway and find it a good match for a small set of rock speakers. I used the built in crossover and connected this to a pair of rock speakers with 5 1/4" drivers and find it a decent combo.
Pros:
Cost and built in passive x-over.
Cons:
The driver could be a bit heftier.
Best Uses:
Nice in a mulch bed where it can be burried partially.
