Thread Starter 

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.

Yep 3.5mm/RCA feed from PC to amp Then high level input from amp to sub via speaker wire from speaker out amp to speaker in on sub. Then high level out via speaker wire from speaker out on sub to your speakers?
