    Hi i am new to the forum and this is might sound an obvious but i have just bought a panasonic sa-xr15 amp, the connection on the back for the subwoofer has a rca plug.My subwoofer is passive with two speaker cables coming from it,can i connect the two wires to a rca plug or do i need to buy a active subwoofer.Hope that makes some kind of sense
    Thanks shaun

    You have 2 options, and rigging an RCA cord to the subwoofer inputs is NOT one of them.

    1) Buy active subwoofer
    2) Get something to serve as a subwoofer amp. You can use an old stereo receiver.

    if you get an amp the sub wires will go to the amplifier speaker terminals, and the RCA from the xr15 goes to one of the inputs on the stereo amp

    XR15 RCA --> Left AUX input
    Amp left speaker --> subwoofer

    if the sub has L and R wires, you can get a Y splitter and split the RCA output from the XR15

    for a budget, this Dayton 10" sub is quite well known
