Passive Subwoofer to an AV Receiver
I need to purchase an AV Receiver (my earlier post today asked about the Sony STRDH800 and Pioneer VSX519). However, can I connect the speakers from my existing Denon DHT500SD 5.1 home cinema system directly to an AV Receiver?
These speakers were part of a 5.1 home cinema pack, with a passive subwoofer. The DVD player has now stopped working so I want to connect these speakers to a new AV Receiver. Can I do this (I see there are connectors on the AV Receivers for the speakers but not for a passive subwoofer with the black/ red wiring)? Am I going to have to purchase a new active subwoofer for this to work. I'm a bit confused and do not want to be spending a small fortune. Any advice appreciated.
