Hi There, I did not realize you sent me a message back as it took so long. My Active - Sub is a Panasonic, Model SB-WA720 120v, 340W, 60HZ. This sub was originally intigrated to a Pansonic receiver with a pin cable, My receiver Amp is a Yamaha Cinema Display Model RX-V465, it is a Tuner Amp for Surround Sound. Thank you

No I am sorry but there is absolutly no way to connect that sub to that receiver, that sub uses a specific cable that attaches it to the panasonic receiver its called a catch up cable then all other speakers attach to that sub, you can however buy a powered sub off of for under $100 that will suit your needs! That sub will only work with certain Panasonic receivers it will not work with any other brand.


If you need further assistance I will be glad to help you.
