Set Up S1 Pro with Subwoofer

I have a Sony Powered 50w Sub and want to connect to the S1 Pro using the TRS out from the Pro to the sub.  Problem: the Sub IN has only an RCA input and the OUT from the S1 requires a TRS 1/4".  So how do I connect the two - assuming the RCA in is an unbalanced input?

You just need to buy the right cable. Amazon will have 1/4" to rca cables for a few dollars.

OK so yes - I understand I can buy a 1/4" to RCA converter, but....will the audio be transmitted if the Tip Ring Sleeve is not continued in the RCA portion?

Re: Set Up S1 Pro with Subwoofer

I had these same questions just the other day. You are going to want a mono cable. 1/4" TS to RCA since your destination device is unbalanced only

Oh OK. Thanks for the advice! The S1 Pro manual does specify a 1/4" TRS out that's why I was concerned.

Re: Set Up S1 Pro with Subwoofer

Hi Ted,

If you get a 1/4 inch (6 mm) jack Tip-Ring-Sleeve to two RCA jacks cable, connect only one of the RCA connections to the sub.

If you get a 1/4 inch (6 mm) jack Tip-Sleeve  to two RCA jacks cable, you can connect both RCA connections to the sub.

It shouldn't make a difference which cable you get.
