    noob question. mono plug for subwoofer?

    Is there anyway to hook up a car subwoofer (Ascendant) to my home receiver when it just has a mono plug? Or do I need to buy one from a store that has a built-in amp?

    Receiver is usually unpowered on the sub output....

    So you need:

    Receiver (RCA OUT) -> AMP (RCA IN) -> SPEAKER

    But, you need a 120 Volt amp not a 12 volt amp, and you might need to have a crossover and proper amp to run correct impedence....

    Dayton sells a 240 watt amp for $100. I ordered one yesterday to power to my $25 eD sub
