Setup Question

raglandlraglandl Posts: 11
I'm thinking of upgrading from my sony to a Denon AVR-3802 reciever, but I'm looking at the back picture of the Denon reciever and I don't see an LFE out line for the sub. I am currently using a Monster Bass 500 coaxial cable to connect my sub. Can someone with one of these recievers help me out or if someone can take a look at the back panel and give me some info that would be great. I see that it has a sub out rca output, but I can't tell whether you use both the red and white end or just the red. I'm just confused. Is my LFE Monster cable still useable and if so is that even the best method of hookup? Thanks guys.

    It does have the sub out hook up on the back. I think it's in with the pre outs. Check out crutchfields web site and look at the back picture of the unit. I have a SONY 4ES and I have mine hooked up via LFE line and it works well for me. Later NICO

    Yes, the Denon 3802 has a LFE out, it is called Sub Woofer. You only use the red connector.

    So the best way to connect the sub would be to use the monster bass coax cable through the red connector?

    Thre is really no bad or good way to hook up your sub I think what works best for you. If you want simple single hook up go with the LFE line if you wan to spend more money on speaker cables that's up to you. That's just my 2 cents. NICO

    my sub is hooked up from the sub preouts.. it's all lumped together with the other 5 pre outs. and yeah you use a coax with RCA connectors from receiver to sub in. simple. and works great. for me this was the easiest way to hook things up.. i know there are other ways. but for me.. simple is better.
