Hi, stepped out for a bit, I'm working on this now. The model you gave me was your TV, do you have an AV receiver for other speakers? That's what I need the model number from.

good morning klipsch sub woofer RW12D receiver is a VIZIO D55U SOUNDBAR is a VIZIO BTM2578
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
does this sub woofer have its own built in power amp?
Technician: Louie, Technician replied 1 year ago
Appreciate the additional information.And yes; the Klipsch RW-12d has a built-in 350W amplifier.But for some reason, the "...BTM2578..." is reported back as a non-valid Vizio Soundbar model. Please re-check.Still, most soundbars would have a pair of R & L / red & white RCA input jacks. Consider below proposed connection method as it would be the simplest to implement:• connect 2 RCA splitters to the L & R AUDIO OUT jacks of the Vizio D55u-D1 similar to the product shown HERE;• connect 2 pairs of RCA-to-RCA cables to the now 4 RCA jacks;• connect 1 pair of RCA-to-RCA cable to the LINE IN R & L jacks of the Klipsch RW-12d at the rear;• connect the other RCA-to-RCA pair to the R & L input jacks of the Vizio soundbar.

The print is so small also looks like BTM257B should sub be wired off the bar? I have it separate off the receiver
Technician: Louie, Technician replied 1 year ago
Even "...BTM257B..." is not recognized; sorry. Most Vizio soundbar models starts with an "S" something like an SB3851 or an S4251w.Perhaps better yet, post back with a picture of the rear of the soundbar particularly where the red & white RCA jacks are located. Click HERE.

sound bar SB8380 after the # ***** is a -C6
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
receiver to sound bar I is connected with a optical cable I connected the sub woofer with a RCA cable to receiver. that's what I have if no good I'll have to buy more RCA cables. The optical came with receiver and said it was best. Will thy work together?
Technician: Louie, Technician replied 1 year ago
Still, product not found on the "...SB8380-C6..."Yes the optical connection would work (best) normally.And the RCA connection to the Klipsch RW-12d would also work simultaneously.

sorry just found quick start guide sound bar model SB3820-C6
Technician: Louie, Technician replied 1 year ago
From the TV to the Vizio SB3820-C6, yes the optical cable connection would be the best connection method in most instances.From the TV to the Klipsch RW-12d, as proposed above; i.e. a pair of RCA-to-RCA cables.

sound bar has only one female RCA hole not L&R SUB has L&R red & white ok I will remove the optical cable
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
is this subwoofer going to work with what I have?
Technician: Louie, Technician replied 1 year ago
Inside the Klipsch RW-12d, the LINE IN R & L are mixed together hence a SINGLE connection from the soundbar's SUB OUT to the the Klipsch RW-12d's LINE IN L jack would/should work.A pair of RCA-to-RCA cable from the TV's AUDIO OUT L & R jacks to the soundbar's L & R AUX (1) jacks would also be needed.

I think I need to go to store? Do they sell a RCA cable that is a single RCA then split to two L&R?
Technician: Louie, Technician replied 1 year ago
Yes; please click HERE. Something like this product but longer.
Ask Your Own Home Theater-Stereo Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
OK the optical cable should that be change to make this work?
Technician: Louie, Technician replied 1 year ago
No; the optical cable is not needed IF a pair of RCA-to-RCA cable from the TV's AUDIO OUT L & R jacks is connected to the soundbar's L & R AUX (1) jacks.

on top of sub woofer there is a digital control panel when powered up should it lite up? it flashes once when turned on then once turning off
Technician: Louie, Technician replied 1 year ago
This is as its name implies, a control panel where the subwoofer's volume among others can be adjusted to your preference.
Ask Your Own Home Theater-Stereo Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
OK but once the subwoofer has power put to it should that panel stayed lite?
Technician: Louie, Technician replied 1 year ago
To my understanding, yes with a blue background light BUT depending on the settings.Have you at least tried if it works?
Ask Your Own Home Theater-Stereo Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I'm asking because there is no indication lite to let me know if its powered up the rocker switch in the back just on off that panel flashes once when turned on then once when turned in the off position?
