This should be a pretty easy problem to solve compared to most issues
that posters are dealing with:

I'm in the middle of connecting my mostly new home theater system and
cannot figure out how to connect the sub to the receiver.

The Yamaha receiver (HTR-5760) has two jacks labelled "subwoofer".
One is the the section labelled "Multi-Channel Input" and the other in
section "Pre Out".

The sub (Klipsch KSW12) has all kinds of connections that don't seem
to match up with the receiver jacks - unless I REALLY don't understand
what is going on here. The sub has 2 pair of red/black screw-down
connections labelled "Speaker In". There is another connection (2
jacks) in the "Line In" section labelled "R" and "L/LFE".

What do I need to do??

Reading the manuals for both components wasn't much help.

Hopefully someone out there can help me or I will have to wait until
Monday to call the store, Yamaha, or Klipsch. And, of course, I am
very anxious to turn this system on!

Thanks for any help,
Bob Henninger

Connect the one in the PRE OUT section to the LFE input on the sub.

===========================
Pre-Out (subwoofer) is preferred method.

================================
Use the L/LFE input on the sub.

and then make sure u turn the volume up. oh and one more thing. on your
yamaha reciever u have to tell it "Subwoofer... YES". it comes out of the
box as the sub is turned off. be carefull. it might be that easy.

if u just got that sub, id consider returning it and getting the Klipsch
RW-12. the KSW is the lower end "synergy" series Klipsch offers. The
Reference line RW-12 u can probably get for a comporable price and it is a
much nicer piece.

Thanks guys,
I bought a new cable and a "Y" to connect to the R and LFE and it
sounds great.
Appreciate the help.
