I have a sub from a surround sound that has two wires. How do I convert it to RCA to plug into my receiver?

My sub is from a Samsung surround sound system that I want to use on my stereo receiver that uses a RCA plug for the sub. How can I convert this?

Depends. You won't be able to use the sub if the sub is amplified, with a signal that's already amplified from the receiver. It'll only work if the receiver has a low level output. If the sub has no built in amplifier and the receiver puts out a line level signal, either splice the wires or buy an adapter (cheap). The signals need to match or its a no go.

The Samsung sub in my surround sound from my Blu-ray / surround is a line level, 2 wire output, looks like 22 Guage speaker wire, but my JBL has a built in amp but capability of either line or low level inputs, the line level bypasses the amp.

The sub does not come with a built in amp I found out so your statement is indeed true. Thanks again
