    :huh: Hey! I'm not to good with audio but iv been trying to figure this out for awhile now, so I need you guy's help! (If at all possible) so I'm trying too hook up a dynax (dvd/cd/mp3/wma player) to my "100W Sony high power subwoofer" and I'm not sure were I'm messing this up or if I'm even using the right cords...
    Try to picture this (any Questions regarding this probably terrible explenation I will try to answer with more detail)
    On the back of the subwoofer is only has 1 cord slot its a circle and labled input.
    On the back of the dynex box it has a range of cord slots from
    aux 1 (red and white)
    Aux 2 (red and white)
    Active SW Out (purple)
    It has the "speakers class 2 wiring which I have speakers hooked up to that are working flawlessly.
    Optical Out (covered with a black peg)
    Coaxial out (orange)
    Component Video Out (.Row 1 (green, blue and red) (Row 2. red white and yellow)
    HDMI out
    AM ANT
    FM ANT
    Lost the Instructions awhile back.. Regardless and input or answer would be much appreciated!
    Thanks in advance!

    Run a single coaxial cable with RCA connectors on each end (like the yellow/red/white cables that come with everything) from the purple subwoofer out on the Dynex to the input on the subwoofer.

    You may need to go into the config menu of the surround system to tell it that you have a subwoofer connected. Also, don't forget to turn the subwoofer on (and plug it in) and make sure it's volume/gain dial is up to at least halfway and the crossover dial (if the subwoofer has one) is dialed all the way to maximum.

    You could see if your remote is available on Fleabay. Since it is a Dynex, I'm sure somebody has a broken one and decided to recoup a few bucks by selling the remote...
