5050A + 8030A + Yamaha Receiver

Hi All,

So relatively new to the audio world. I have recently purchased a Yamaha RXV471 to accompany my 5050A and 2x 8030A monitors.....however, I am having a pretty hard time figuring out how they are come together.

My understanding is that receiver needs to support Pre Out (with it does) And that the 2 speakers plug into the back of the sub. Ive done this and while I can hear the subwoofer, the speakers are silent.

Am I missing something? :?
Thanks guys

Yamaha RX-V471 has only preout for the subwoofer. In order it to work properly with a 2.1 system, you would need preouts also for the two main channels. ... _black__u/

Those are available on RX-V871 and RX-V 773. ... uct_lineup ... uct_lineup

The RX-V471 seem to have analog audio out for the main channels but those must be at fixed level (read: max level) so you would need to use a line level attenuator in between, for example Genelec 9000A.
