    I turned on the power and nothing... there is no sound coming from my new subwoofer.

    Here are the details... this is a used Hypex HS200 and a new 12" Soniccraft SCC300 driver that I bought from reliable sources... so I expect are functional. I'm connecting the subwoofer to my 2-channel stereo consisting of:
    * BentAudio TX102 pre-amp
    * AKSA 100W mono-blocks
    * Ellis 1801 satellites

    I bought a 12' subwoofer cable and y-adapter from RS. I have the Y-adapter connected to the R-channel output from my pre-amp. One leg goes to the IC to my amplifier. The other leg goes to the subwoofer input.

    I'm going to try to use the high-pass crossover, connecting directly from pre-amp to sub-in and sub-out to my satellite amps. Is this correct?

    What are the high-power in connectors? They look like speaker binding posts.

    I wish I had the manual. I appreciate the advice.

    Thanks,

    Al

    I got a schematic from Hypex's tech support and then talked with Christopher at Adire, excellent service...

    The sub is now working fine. The hard part begins with fine-tuning.

    Thanks,

    Al
