    I have a B1-45 Ace Bass Sub. Its powered and has a 5pin DIN output....I don't have a pre-amp to power it so I was wondering if i could convert it to RCA to plug into my receiver......possibly make a cable one end w/ 5pin din, other w/ rca jacks? Thanks

    Geoff,
    First, welcome to the Forum!
    Of course it is easy to make an adapter, if you know how to solder. However, you will need a pin-out of the sub’s DIN input—that is, a diagram or chart that shows what part of the audio signal shows up at which pin. For example:
    Pin 1: Left audio (+)
    Pin 2: Left audio (-)
    etc.
    If you do not have a pin out, you will not be able to make an adapter. If there is no information in the owner’s manual, call the manufacturer’s tech support. They should be able to provide the information, or maybe even get you a ready-made adapter.
