I just bought a Pioneer SW-8 receiver from Newegg to go with my STR-DE697, after asking Pioneer's tech support and Sony's tech support if they would be compatible. I was told by both that it would, but I see that the STR has a monaural out and the SW-8 has 2-channel input. Now, what do I need to do to connect this? I'm assuming I should connect the receiver to line level since it is a powered subwoofer?
I tried connecting just the red cable (and then white) of the RCA to each channel on the subwoofer. I do get sound from the SW, but it is far too low even turned up all the way.
Any help will be highly appreciated.
