I have an amplifier that has an RCA output for my subwoofer. How would I connect this with one RCA cable?
1 Answer
Hi Mike:

The connection on the OMSUB200 is a speaker level input. It is meant to wire in line with a pair of satellite speakers. It is connected using four-conductor speaker wire, right and left (+/-) either from the Speaker A or Speaker B outputs. Technically you could connect Speaker A to a pair of full-range speakers and Speaker B to the OMSUB200. The primary connection would be from a Speaker level output to the Four Conductor Input of the OMSUB200. Then there is a four-conductor output so you can connect directly to a pair of speakers. This setup is a Sub Sat system or Subwoofer/Satellite Speaker setup. In your setup, the signal level (RCA Preamp) would need to connect to a dedicated Subwoofer amplifier like our SMP300. You would also select our OMSUB200S without an internal passive crossover versus the OMSUB200 with the crossover built-in.

is this a self powered unit??  -  as i see an amplifier is offered as an accessory 

or will it work from my receiver (onkyo 125w)  if wired from receiver to the sub and then to sattelites will it have the same effect

lastly does it have to be submerged underground - to work ?  

1 Answer
Hi Frank:

There are two versions of the OMSUB200 outdoor subwoofer design. One with a built-in crossover (this model; OSD-OMSUB200) and the other a passive Subwoofer with no crossover or pass-thru connection(OSD OMSUB200S). Connecting a stereo signal to the OMSUB200 to the inputs and then adding a pair of satellites to the right and left output cables is the ideal setup, just like the application you described. The Subwoofer is meant to be buried 4 to 6 inches, so the Subwoofer couples with the ground to create a more profound low-frequency output.

HI Bob:

Can you tell me more about your system? What Amplifier/Receiver are you using (Brand and Model #). What speakers are you using for your satellites? Are you looking to connect two of the OMSUB200 speakers along with two pairs of satellites? To use 2 of the OMSUB200 along with two pair of satellites, you might need to wire them in series raising the net impedance to 8 ohms. But a lot depends on your stereo amplifier (whether it is High Current or not).

Please let me know more,

I want to run Rt and Left Satellite speakers directly from Receiver. And run Left And Right wires to the OMSUB200, rather than run Satellites from the subwoofer? Will it work equally well? Thanks Gary
1 Answer
Hi Gary: You have the option of connecting the Sub first then from the sub to the satellites or link directly to the Satellite and Sub separately. The connection from the OMSUB200 is a direct pass through to the Satellite Speakers, so there is no difference, either way, you connect the sub-sat system. TL/5495

I have a pair of 670’s running on my patio off a Denon 2nd zone (2113ci I believe). Do I need an sub amp or can it just power these along with this sub?
1 Answer
Hi DJ: The new version of the OMSUB200 will be back in stock by the end of February. The AP670 are rated down to 44 Hz. The OMSUB200 is rated at 50Hz. I would recommend adding a second pair of AP670 before adding a subwoofer. You could add it in lune which would drop your load from the Denon to 4 ohms between the pair of AP670 and the OBSub200. W would recommend adding an external amplifier to drive two pairs of the AP670. If you still want to add an outdoor Sub or two you should check out the new In Ground GLS8 powered by an SMP500 which you can drive two 8 ohm subwoofers for a 4-ohm load. That would get the max output adding another pair of AP-670 and then the dual subs. It is definitely recommended going to one of the external amplifiers for more satellites and Subs. Good luck TL/5363

Hi Dan: The new OMSub200S has no internal crossover so it needs to be dedicated subwoofer amplifier like our SMP250 with adjustable crossover. The original OMSub200 hopefully will be back in stock this Fall. It would work with the NERO powering both the sub and the pair of satellites.

The sub with its high-level output and internal crossover could be driven by a single full range amplifier. The new version will be sub only where you will need a dedicated subwoofer amplifier like our SMP300 with built-in crossover.

Hi Kile: We are finalizing a newer version of this outdoor sub. I do not believe it will be back in stock until July. It is also going to be a straight subwoofer with no internal crossover and no pass through to the satellite speakers. You will need to drive it with a dedicated Mono Subwoofer Power Amplifier.

Do you have to use a sub-sat setup or can you just connect this to the sub amp connected to the reciever pre out. I dont want to use a sub-sat setup.
1 Answer
Hi Kent: Most of the AV Receivers have two sub woofer outputs both summed Mono. The OMSUB200 has a stereo connection since it also has a stereo pass through which you can connect to a pair of satellite speakers. There is an internal low pass crossover. Frequency Response is 50Hz to 250Hz. In order to answer your direct question I am trying to get an answer on on the actual components and how they are wired. I trying to confirm if you can connect both sets of inputs to the single connection from your sub Amp. it also depends on how much power your Sub Amp generates. You might want to check out our new 8" in-ground sub (GLS8) which has no internal crossover (the dedicated sub amp provides all the controls) and rated to 500 Watts and it will go down to 28Hz. Yes it is twice the price but maybe a better match for your Sub Amp. From there we step up to the RSub300 like the GLS8 has no crossover and mostly above ground . It is also 500W but goes down to 20Hz and has a sensitivity of 90dB and maybe an even better match for your Sub Amp. Oh, and if you have not picked out your dedicated sub amp check out our newest addition to the OSD Electronics lineup, the SMP500DSP 400 Watt Dedicated Sub woofer power amplifier with DSP special effects.

I have one pair of outdoor speakers and two outdoor subwoofers (one is this unit). I would like to use one subwoofer for each channel. Both outdoor subs have inputs for left and right channels (red +, black -, yellow + and blue - wires). What is the best way to wire this setup?
1 Answer
Hi Jack: This should be easy to do, you are going to have a dedicated right and left channel sub/satellite system. First connect the right channel from your receiver/amplifier to the red and black input wires of the OMSUB200. Then try connecting one of the Red and Black set of wires on the output side to one of your satellite speakers. The one that passes signal is the correct match to the left channel Red and Black Input. Then connect the Right channel wires from your amp/receiver to the Yellow and Blue right channel inputs wires of the second OMSUB200. Again see which Red and Black output wires pass a signal to the second satellite speaker. Note: The output wires maybe labeled Right (+/-) and Left (+/-) but if not the correct corresponding output is a thru put from the input side so Right input passes thru to Right output and Left Input to the Left Output. Technically your amp/Receiver should see a 4 ohm load from this configuration. Good setup TL/4955

I currently have one of these hooked up to a cheaper 2 channel stereo amplifier. My setup is from the amp/receiver on channel A is the OM Sub200 and from the sub I have two of the omni planter speakers. On channel B I have two of your 8" ceiling speakers (ICE800TTWRS) with only using one connection on each. It sounds great, however I have two more planter speakers from you that I would like to incorporate in the system. I have also upgraded my current in home receiver so now I have a Pioneer VSX-45 that I'm not using and I'm wanting to replace my current cheaper 2 channel stereo amp with this. If I would like to add the pioneer receiver and add two more planters, would I still need to purchase another omni sub? My concern is that I will have surround sound which is not what I am wanting. I want all of the speakers to play the same like I currently have. Any advice on how I can hook this up with my current equipment? I have added a picture of the back of my pioneer receiver. Thank you, you guys rock!
1 Answer
HI Dave: It is nice you are upgrading to the Pioneer Elite Receiver. I would suggest the following, add a DSM4 speaker selector to your mix. Connect it to Speaker A output then connect the Zone 1 to your OMSUB200 then to the pair of Omni Planter speakers (you already have this wired). Then I would connect one of the ICE800TT WRS to zone 2 but run another 2 conductor wire and connect the second voice coil. Do the same for Zone 3 with the second ICE800TT WRS connecting a second 2 conductor pair to the second voice coil. They may sound good but you may be limiting them playing only the right or left channel. Maybe before you run a second wire to both at least try one and see if it makes difference. That leaves you with Zone 4 to connect the second pair of Omni planter speakers either with another OMSUB200 or by themselves. Based upon what I read in the owners manual you also have Speaker B output from the VSX-45 which is available to play another pair of speakers playing the same as Speaker B (you don't connect the Surround Speakers). You also have another feature on the DSM4, a second source input selectable by each zone so you can play either source A or B depending on what you set the source button for each zone. In a basic setup you make sure you use the internal protection switch on the back panel (enable/on) to make sure your Pioneer sees an 8 ohm load even with all speaker playing. The step up from this would be where you add outdoor volume controls for each zone and set your impedance matching at the Volume Controls and making sure you defeat the protection on the DSM4. Also checkout our SSVC4 which combines the speaker selector and internal volume controls. On both the DSM4 and SSVC4 feature your dual source (A/B). You could use your older receiver for Source B. Of course I don't know if you need two sources at once. Please let me know if you need further clarification. Good luck TL/4923

I had asked about adding these to a pair of Yamaha NS-AW390BL speakers . I am using my 2nd room source output run to an Integra amp that is rated at either 100 or 125 watts per channel at 8 ohms which drives my Yamahas I don't have my spec sheet in front of me it does have different ratings for 4 and 6 ohm also believe that these areal 100 watts per channel or above?? From what you are telling me it sounds like this will work with adding this sub. The Yamahasl are really great on acoustic guitars and vocals. The 250 hz crossover seems a little high to me?? Would that affect the midrage sound on my Yamahas?? Thx for answering my previous questions Leaning towards this item because of price. Is this the same sub as the TIC Sb50 same price range looks almost Identical. Believe its specs are 25 hz to 125 hz which is lower than your speaks the majority of the reviews on your sub are better. Also looking at an Atrium but price is 3 times as high and it's low end rating is 50 hz. These specs all confuse me I just want nice clean extra bass response no boom don't care about that.
1 Answer
Hi Jeff: If you are using an Itegra Power Amplifier connected to your Zone 2 output to run the Yamaha speakers plus add our OM-SUB200 you should be fine. The Integra Amplifiers are considered High Current amps and will handle the low impedance loads. You do have a thirty day performance guarantee if you buy it directly from our web site in case it does not meet your satisfaction. Next step would be spend the money on the Polk Atrium but you will not get three times the performance... TL/4492 TIC should have the same specs as our OM-SUB200, so are we being too conservative and they are fudging theirs? I think the reviewers like the fact we outperform our specs

I'm considering buying one of these to and to a pair of. Yamaha NS-AW390BL outdoor speakers I purchased they are tated 55hz to 40khz. Sense the low end spec on these is 50hz would I have amy improvement inmy sound and bass output??
1 Answer
Hi Jeff: Adding an 8" Subwoofer should provide additional Bass to the 6.5 inch driver of the Yamaha NS-AW390BL It really depends on the Amplifier or Receiver you are using as well. You would be adding an 8 ohm load with the OM SUB 200 to your 6 ohm Yamaha speakers in parallel. That would create a load lower than 4 ohm. So if you are using a 2nd zone output from your receiver without going through an external amplifier you may have an issue. You would need a high current amplifier like our AMP200 or AMP300 both stable down to 2 ohm. The net result by driving a less than the 4 ohm load you will get more audio output from the amplifier (that is why you need an amp setup to handle this load). Good luck TL/ 4483

Just purchased the OM-SUB200 and two OS790 8" satellite speakers and am using the OSD HD-OVC100 volume control (before the Sub). Would prefer to run the music in mono so that full sound can be heard at each satellite speaker. Powering them with a Russound P75 Dual Source amp using the bridged mode (requires a min of 8ohms) to increase the power to the sub and sats. My question is what impedance switch setting should be used on the volume control to achieve the required min of 8ohms? Not clear if the Subs satellite setup is wired in series or parallel.
1 Answer
Hi Steve S: The combination you want connect with the OM-SUB 200 and a pair of OS-790 are wired in parallel. The impedance should be between 4 and 8 ohm and will draw more current. This setup would not be 8 ohm stable for your Bridged Mono mode. The OM-SUB 200 has four inputs with an internal DVC with dual 4 ohm voice coils wired in series after the low pass crossover. The wires are split before connecting to the low pass filter so you have a direct full range pass through to the satellite speakers. You will get plenty of output from the stereo configuration with the Russound P75 Amplifier. Good choices TL/3975

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.
1 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. TL

I just bought this sub and 4 eight inch outside speaker. I'm hooking up the 4 speakers to speaker a on my receiver and want to connect the sub to system b. can i use two wire to go to the sub?
1 Answer
Hi Paul, The best way to connect the OM-SUB200 is to create a sub-sat system (subwoofer/satellite). Connect the Speaker A output (both right and left) to the Speaker inputs of the SUB200. Then connect two of the 8-inch speakers to the speaker output from the SUB200. The SUB200 features a two-way crossover that separates the low frequencies used to drive the SUB200 and outputs the high frequencies to drive the satellite speakers (the 8-inch stereo pair). The 8-inch satellites (connected to the SUB200) become much more efficient because they only have to reproduce the mid and high frequencies. The 8-inch features its own crossover separating the signal between the 8-inch mid bass driver and the tweeter. In essence, you have created a three-way system. Connect the second pair of 8-inch to the Speaker B output and then compare the sound between the two systems (A vs B). I am confident you will want to add a second SUB200 to create a sub-sat system on speaker B as well using the second pair of eight inch speakers. Otherwise you can connect the sub directly to output B per your original question and then compare the speakers with and without the sub by turning B on and off. Make sure to run a 4-conductor wire to the SUB200 (right and left, +/-). Good luck and thank you for purchasing from OSD. TL

How is the feed from a sub woofer amplifier that has a mono positive and negative speaker wire supposed to be connected to the subwoofer that has a stereo connection with 2 positive and 2 negative wires
1 Answer
Hi Les: This particular sub woofer has a built in internal crossover and a stereo input (thus the 2 positive and 2 negative connections input conductors). It is meant to connect to a Stereo Amplifier/Receiver. It splits the signal internally. first a stereo connection to a low pass crossover which is connected to the 8" internal sub woofer. The second set of four conductors are a pass thru to the four output connectors for a right and left connection to a pair of satellite speakers (a pair of rock, patio, garden, omni or planter speakers). You do not need a dedicated Mono Sub power amplifier with this sub. The Amplifier/Receiver will see a 4 ohm load from this combination. We offer a number of other outdoor subs including our RSUB200 Rock Subwoofer and new GLS8 8" in-ground sub both of which you need the dedicated sub amplifier to make them work. We also offer the new BOM4.1 Bluetooth version of the OMSUB200 with a internal Bluetooth Receiver and 4.1 multi channel power amplifier featuring an internal 100 watt powered subwoofer and two pair of four conductor outputs allowing you to connect any two pair of passive speakers.

I'd like to run the SUB200 sub with them but not sure how the wiring would work with 2 sets (4 total) sat speakers. Would I need to use 2 SUB200's and hook each set of AP490's to the separate subs or will 1 sub work? Will the XMP100 power all of these speakers?
1 Answer
Hi Jason: Good question; connecting the 2 pair of AP490 and playing them at the same time will create a 4 ohm load on the XMP100. When adding the OM SUB200 you end up dropping the load to 2.6 ohm, which is below the safe operating zone of the Amplifier. The safest way to do it would be to connect the OM SUB 200 to speaker A. Then connect the speakers in series first the right positive to the first AP490. Then connect the negative from that speaker to the positive of the second Right speaker. Now negative from that second right speaker back to the negative output of the OM SUB200. Do the same on the Left side. That should bring it back closer to the 8 ohm setting. The alternative is to step up to our AMP200 and run an OM SUB200 for each pair of AP490. TL/4532

Hi Rick: The OM SUB200 is a passive Subwoofer with an internal low pass filter. The Subwoofer output of your ONKYO is a signal level pre amplified output. You will need to purchase a dedicated Subwoofer power amplifier like our SMP250 and connect to the ONKYO pre amp sub woofer output with an RCA stereo signal cable (1 of 2 if you have a 7.2 Receiver). Then connect the two inputs of the OM SUB200 in Parallel connecting the two conductors of the SMP250 (+/-) to the Right and left input conductors. Connect the single positive to the two input positives and the single Negative output of the SMP250 to the two negative inputs of OM SUB200.

I am looking to have 2 sub200 setups each running their own 2 OS790 speakers on each side of the yard. Is it possible to run that all in Mono? Would like to have that instead of a L & R off each sub. If so what type of AMP power do I require?
1 Answer
HI Jay from Jersey: It would be tough running the Sub sat system (OM SUB200 and 2 OS-790) speakers in Mono. The amplifier I would suggest is our AMP200. The problem is in order to run this amp in bridged Mono you need a minimum 8 ohm load and you only have 2 conductor signal form the amp and that is it. You need four conductors to the sub and four more beyond to the OS790 (2 for each). A stereo setup is usually your best sounding option. Also you can use a single Amplifier like our AMP 200, where you connect Speaker A to one OM Sub 200 then to the pair of OS-790s. The second sub and pair of OS-790 would be connected to Speaker B. You will have the option of playing A or B or A and B. Technically you will be below 4 ohm between the two Sub sat systems which more than double the output of the AMP200. This is a High Current Amplifier That was built for 4 or better (2 ohm stable). Running this amp into an 8 ohm load is like buying a Corvette so you can drive 35 miles an hour on the Highway. And having more power is the key when adding subs to any system. Want more power then step up to the AMP 300 The best Stereo separation is to have the OS-790 8 to 10 feet apart. Good luck TL/4287

Just purchased this sub with a pair of the planter speakers. I am hooking them up to an outside tv. My question is what can I use to power them? Can I connect the sub and speakers to an amp then to the tv? Or do I need a receiver? I don't have a ton of room so would like somethingsmaller that is easy to control and not a fortune!
1 Answer
Hi Dave: You can use either your Receiver or an amplifier like our AMP120. You will want to check the owners manual for your TV to check if you have a fixed output (where the volume would be controlled on the AMP or Receiver) or variable output (where the level would be controlled from the TV remote). Most TV have fixed output but there are some featuring a choice between fixed or variable output. You can also connect the audio from your set top box (either Cable or Satellite). That might be either by Fiber optic/Digital coax to your receiver. Or analog to the AMP120 (RCA connection). Then from either your receiver or Amplifier you run four conductors to the OM-SUB200 Left and Right (+/-) The input wires are color coded Left Positive; Red, Left Negative; Black, Right Positive; Blue and Right Negative; Yellow. There is a built in Low Pass Crossover for the Internal Subwoofer than two (2) conductors for outputs to your planter speakers, two left (+/-) and two right (+-). There is a thru-put connection by passing the crossover to the two satellite speakers. Good choices TL/4067

How would I hookup two Sub-200's paired with the AP -650's to the Amp 300? Can this be achieved and will the amp 300 have enough draw to power two subs and 4 speakers?
1 Answer
Hi Andrew: I am assuming each sub will be close to a pair of the AP-650 speakers. If so you would run a four conductor cable (like our 14/4 CL3/FT4 direct Burial cable) to each OM SUB 200. Then connect the AP650 to the output side of the OM Sub 200. I would recommend 14/2 two conductor from the OM SUB 200 to the satellite AP-650 speakers, one two conductor to the right speaker and another two conductor to the left speaker. Connect each sub woofer/ satellite to Speaker A for one and Speaker B for the other. The AMP 300 has plenty of power to handle these two sub sat systems. Good choices TL/4012

Is the amp120 amplifier a good choice for running this sub with some satellite speakers?
1 Answer
Hi Blake: The AMP120 has hard time producing a 4 ohm load. It really is meant to drive up to two pair of 8 ohm speakers but not at the same time. When you press Speaker A button Speaker B button pops out. When you connect the OM SUB200 and a pair of satellites that would drop to an un safe 4 ohm load and if your satellite speaker are 6 ohm or even 4 ohm it would try to draw more current then the am,p will deliver. A better choice would be the AMP200 a High Current Power Amplifier that is 2 ohm stable. It is built to deliver High Current with ample heat sink, large capacitance and all discrete components in the Audio section. It even weighs three times more than the AMP120. TL/3805

I have recently purchased one OM-SUB200, two AP-520, two OS525 satellite speakers and I only have a SMP250 amp. I plan to set up the satellite speakers off this subwoofer but how can I tie all this as well as the AP-520s to the SMP250 amp? I also have a pair of AP525 speakers....will those tie in better than the 520's? please advise. thank you.
1 Answer
Hi JD: The SMP-250 is the wrong Amplifier for this application. It is a mono sub amplifier meant just to drive a dedicated Sub-woofer utilizing its built in Low Pass Crossover. The AMP200 would have been a better choice since it is full range stereo Amplifier. The OS-SUB200 has an internal Crossover and a pass through so you can connect the OS-525 to the output wires from the OS-SUB-200. The OS-SUB200 would connect to the Speaker A Right and Left speaker output (+/-) of the AMP200. Then connect the AP-520s to the Speaker B output R&L (+/-) of the AMP-200. You can also add a outdoor volume control for the Sub and satellite (before the OS-SUB200) and also before the AP-520 speakers for more control. We have a 30 day customer satisfaction guarantee assuming you still have all the original packaging. Then you could exchange it for the AMP200. Note there will be a difference in price and you will have to pay for the freight to return the SMP-250. The AMP200 has free shipping to you. Just contact our customer service department.

Hi Jonathan, The AP650 actually have a good amount of bass response to where you probably wouldn't need an additional subwoofer. Try them out first and if you want more bass, you can always add the sub later!

This is a passive subwoofer so you want to connect it to a stereo amplifier. It has a built-in crossover that will filter out the high-frequency sounds and only pass the low-frequency through to the sub.

Can I connect to the output of the subwoofer to four speakers rather than just two ?
1 Answer
Hi Joe, Really that depends on your amplifier. Adding four satellite speakers is going to give you an impedance load of 2ohms, so you would need to run it with a high-current amplifier such as our AMP200. Also, you probably will want to run a volume control between the sub and the satellite speakers so you can limit the volume of the stereo speakers, allowing you to use the sub to its full potential. Reason being because high frequency sounds require much less wattage to reach higher volumes, thus the satellite speakers will be too loud when the sub is at a very low volume.

1 Answer
Hi Gary, The subwoofer will add some bass response to your outdoor system, but it is not the most powerful subwoofer if you want that really booming bass sound. It's difficult to get that in an outdoor application like it would be in a home theater application. However, if you just want smooth bass sound, this will do the job. It has a built-in crossover that filters out high-frequency sounds and allows you to run stereo speakers off of it. Thus, you can run this subwoofer off a stereo amp/receiver by itself or with satellite speakers on it. If you do run your stereo speakers off the subwoofer, we recommend running a volume control between the sub and stereo speakers so you can turn up the subwoofer and lower the higher volume of the satellite speakers.

March 20, 2015
I have an open-air but covered back patio that is 22' wide and extends 10' off the back of my house. My $100 pair of Yamaha outdoor speakers from BestBuy are mounted about 10' up on the house wall under my covered patio (ie- 21' apart). Because of wiring difficulties, the only place I can put this OM-SUB200 would be on the patio deck directly under one of the Yamaha speakers. Is it a problem that the sub will be located very near one Yamaha speaker but 21' away from the other? I'm worried that whenever people are near the speaker furthest from the sub, all they will hear is too much mid- and treble-range with not enough base. Any thoughts?
1 Answer
Hi John G: I am not sure the OM Sub 200 will give you the overall base you want. I am not trying to discourage you from buying this from us but I would do would be to add a second pair of Yamaha speakers inside your existing pair. 21' is too far for proper stereo separation. Do you have access to wire an additional pair of the 2 way 6.5" Outdoor speakers. Assuming you purchased the 6.5" versus the 5" I would place one each of the speakers 6.5 feet inside the speakers 21 feet apart. I would also wire them as Right-Left-Right-Left. You could run them parallel with the existing pair without having to go all the way back to the Amplifier/Receiver (second zone out?). Then you would have the proper separation and the 6.5" would have plenty of base for your outdoor application. Now here is where I would need to sell you something to make it work properly. Both these pair of speakers are 6 ohm versus 8 ohm. And your amplifier would see a demanding 3 ohm load. That is where I would suggest adding an in line SSVC1 single zone Impedance Matching Box with Internal Volume Control. You would need to change the internal setting to 4x so the amplifier would see a safe operating load. technically two pair of 6 ohm speakers would be considered the same as 3 pair of 8 ohm. Maybe you could let us know more about your setup and if you do have access to add the second pair of Yamaha speakers. Note: We usually recommend 8 to 10 feet between speakers TL/3204

1 Answer
Hi Rodrigo, That should work just fine. You may want to run a volume control between the sub and satellite speakers because the high frequency sounds will be much louder than the low frequency of the subwoofer. Adding a volume control will allow you to turn the volume up to get significant bass while keeping the satellite speaker volume from getting too loud.

Hi Michael, This subwoofer can be powered by a stereo receiver thanks to the built-in crossover that will filter out the highs. You can run two satellite speakers off of it to receive the highs. It's recommended to run a volume control between the sub and satellites because the amp will power high frequency sounds much louder than low frequency.
