I'm essentially trying to connect a buddies computer and his subwoofer to a sherwood 4105 (or 4109, same ports on the back)
http://www.compsource.com/large_image.asp?part_no=RX4105&vid=1210 (as you can see, no purple subwoofer out, like seen on most new surround receivers) No DVI, VGA, or HDMI either for computer connectivity
Now, can I run a 3.5mm to RCA cord into the CD/DVD inputs on the back of the receiver to connect into his computer?
As for connecting the sub, should he get an RCA Y cord (http://www.amazon.com/Monster-ILJRY-1-Single-Female-Y-Adapter/dp/B00006346W/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1313297289&sr=8-2) from the CD/DVD outputs, to connect to his sub?
Essentially like this: Computer -> 3.5mm to RCA -> CD/DVD input. Now, CD/DVD output -> RCA Y adapter cable -> RCA male/male cable -> back of subwoofer
Would the above setup work? He is using a sony sa-w3000 sub.
