QuestionWill this subwoofer work with the Sony STR-DH190 stereo receiver? I was thinking since it has speaker inputs and outputs that I would run the speaker connects through the woofer and it would do the crossover and send higher freq. signal onto L/R speakers
- Answer Yes, this will work with the STR-DH190 receiver.
QuestionI bought this sub to connect to a Sony STR DH-590 Receiver but I’m getting no bass sound? Don’t know what I have connected wrong?
- Answer Check the wiring running to all your other speakers and ensure all the other speakers are playing. If the other speakers are working fine, then check the line running from your receiver to the bass. I am using an Insignia 15' Subwoofer cable to connect my receiver to my Core Series 10" bass. Check to make sure you have a solid connection. After checking all wires and speakers for connectivity, make sure you turn the bass itself on. The Sony Core Series 10" has its own power switch located on the back of the speaker near the bottom (its a push button switch). You'll know its on when you see a green light appear on top of the bass near the rear next to the vents. If you have the receiver connected correctly to the bass, AND you have the power switch on the bass pressed in and you see NO light on top of the bass, you have a power problem with the bass and you will need to get it fixed or turn it back in. If you have everything connected correctly, you DO have the power switch on the back of the bass pressed, and you DO see a green light on top of the bass but still have NO sound, you have a blown speaker in that subwoofer.

QuestionI bought the Insignia Receiver - NS-STR514 for a basic bluetooth receiver & Sony Core 5" 3-Way Bookshelf Speakers. Receiver does not have subwoofer output. Can I still use it? Maybe run speaker wires from receiver to sub to speakers?
- Answer Yes. You would run your speaker wires from the amp to the sub then out to the speakers. The cutoff control on the back then allows you to strip off the high frequencies that the sub does not use and let's the other speakers handle the higher frequencies.
QuestionI have a Yamaha ATS-1070 soundbar that has a "subwoofer out" jack in the rear (looks like a round RCA cable connection). The manual says to connect a subwoofer equipped with a built-in amplifier to the rear jack. Will this Sony work with the soundbar?
- Answer Hi Larinho, this subwoofer fits the definition given by the manual of your soundbar. You will be needing a line in/audio cable to establish a connection between the two. For assurance, we recommend getting in touch with the manufacturer of your soundbar if it can support the power of this subwoofer.

QuestionHey, can I hook this up directly to a Sony A8H OLED TV to beef up the sound a bit? Would you recommend another subwoofer instead? Thanks!
- Answer FYI, this is a feature that Sony TVs had for a while, but it appears they dropped by the A8H. If you can find an A8G then you can save some money and it should have this feature.
QuestionI have a tv with good speakers and just need better bass. Can I hook this sub to my tv without having to use a receiver or soundbar and use it in conjunction with the internal tv speakers instead?
- Answer That’s exactly the way I’m using it. My TV allows selection of “subwoofer” out of the headphones jack, and that’s where I have it connected. Works great!

Questiondo you have to connect the speakers to the subwoofer? I have all the speakers connected to the sony receiver. Should I change them?
- Answer Hi cashfil, thank you so much for your inquiry. We are not sure what model of Sony receiver you have. However, if your receiver support one or both of the following connections, no, you don't need to change your speaker setup: - MONO OUT jack - MIX OUT jack - SUBWOOFER output jack(s) - SUPER WOOFER output jack(s) You will only need to use the SPEAKER IN terminals of the subwoofer if your receiver doesn't support the above-mentioned output jacks. I hope this helps! Sincerely, Romeo
- Answer Hi Neclcd, Thank you so much for your inquiry! The SA-CS9 115W 10” Active Subwoofer will work with any amplifier or AV receiver that supports one or both of the following connections: - MONO OUT jack - MIX OUT jack - SUBWOOFER output jack(s) - SUPER WOOFER output jack(s) Note: You can also connect your amplifier or AV receiver if it does not have the above-mentioned output jacks to the SPEAKER IN terminals of the subwoofer. I hope this helps! Sincerely, Romeo
QuestionI have a 2003 Yamaha HTR-5760 Receiver with a PRE-OUT connection for the Subwoofer. The manual says to connect a subwoofer with a built in amplifier. This should work, right? Is that why it's a PRE-OUT jack? So the sub can do the amplification itself?
- Answer A pre-out is just to connect the sound so any subwoofer with a built in amp will work.
- Answer Hi, Moore! No, this subwoofer doesn't support wireless function. Regards, David
- Answer This unit supports Line In (Left & Right Channels) from Source, then Line Out (Left & Right Channels) to Speakers. It ,also, supports LFE (Low-Frequency Effects) Coaxial Connection Input, which is what I am using from my Surround System. There is NO Fiber Optic connection. So, if your Source can connect either of the ways above, then you should be fine. For the price, it is a very capable Sub-Woofer. I purchased mine to replace my JBL Sub, which is connected to my Sony Surround System and the wife and I are quite happy with it's performance!
- Answer There is a volume control on back. Also there is an on / off/ auto switch to power it. I leave it on auto so it just kicks on when needed.
QuestionI just purchased a sony STRDH590. Will this subwoffer work with it and if so do I need any special cables or connections to hook it up?
- Answer I have the same Sony STR-DH590 Receiver/Amplifier and it works really well with SA-CS9-115W sub-woofer. Connection between them is done by a single phono cable that is included with the sub-woofer.
QuestionBuying this for Christmas gift. What cord do I need to buy with this sub in order to set up on Christmas?
- Answer It has a built in power cord and rca audio cable in the box. It comes ready for setup
QuestionWill this work with a Sony str-de995? I see that this is Operating at six ohms and the receiver runs at eight.
- Answer Hi Steven, thank you so much for your question. Unfortunately, no. We do not recommend using our SA-CS9 115W 10” Active Subwoofer to STRDE995 Home Receiver. Matching speakers and subwoofer with lower impedance (ohms) than what the A/V receiver is rated may cause damage to the receiver. Hope this helps! - Romeo
QuestionHow many ports are there? Are there enough ports to plug in 5 speakers/wires, 1 port for the Sony TV, and 1 port for the CD player, to accommodate surround sound stereo system? Will this subwoofer work with this arrangement?
- Answer Hi Cher, Thank you so much for your inquiry. The SA-CS9 115W 10” Active Subwoofer usually connect to an amplifier or AV receiver that supports one or both of the following connections: - MONO OUT jack - MIX OUT jack - SUBWOOFER output jack(s) - SUPER WOOFER output jack(s) • You can also connect your amplifier or AV receiver if it does not have the above-mentioned output jacks to the SPEAKER IN terminals of the subwoofer. Unfortunately, this subwoofer cannot accommodate 5 speakers and doesn't support a TV/AV devices connection. You will need to have an AV receiver like the STR-DH590 to accommodate your setup.

- Answer Hi Sherrie, Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately, no. These speakers don't work with Alexa. You will most likely need to use an amplifier or receiver that supports Alexa. Regards, Carl
