So thank God, I finally received my subwoofer last night. It was the proudest moment of my life Posted Image . However, after hooking it up with my yamaha RX-V595a receiver, I can't get any NO sound out of my subwoofer. I hooked them up properly, I activate the subwoofer channel on my subwoofer, turned it up the volume level to 5, and the power light on subwoofer lit up. FYI: i have BIC active subwoofer 12". One thing that i'm not sure though, since I was lazy to go to Radioshack to get some RCA subwoofer cable, I used the regular RCA cable ....like the red and white ones. Is there a difference between RCA subwoofer cable and RCA audio (red and white) cable....??? I'm sorry guys, i'm a total newbie when it comes to this home theatre stuff. PLease help, I really want to get my subwoofer started Posted Image.

Did you go into the Yamaha receivers menu and select the subwoofer "Yes" setting in speaker settings section?
" I think it's time we go to plan B". "What's plan B?" "That's the one where we don't do something stupid".

No, there's no difference between the cables. Check out Common Subwoofer Set-Up Errors by Edward J M and go through each point carefully.
