Stellar S300 trigger out


#1

I want to turn on my B&W PVD1 subwoofer with a trigger. By using a mini jack (stereo), the stellar’s trigger out is connected to Trigger 1 of my B&W PVD1 subwoofer, but it doesn’t work. So what am I doing wrong?
Thanks in advance

Try a non stereo version because it was designed for the mono style of 3.5mm. If that doesn’t work give us a shout on Monday and we’ll get you fixed up.

Thanks Paul
I will try that.

If the S300 is like the M700, the trigger jack is for input only (or for daisy chaining to another amp with the trigger signal coming from a pre-amp or other component). The Stellar GCD has an active trigger out but not the amps.

Excellent point. I did not think of this.

Unfortunately but so be it.
Thank you all for the quick response!

Hi Paul,
Just got the s300 + the sgcd and they sound wonderful. Will it be possible to use a stereo version of the 3.5mm for the trigger?
Thank you

Yes, a stereo plug will carry a mono signal; stereo TRS into a mono socket connects the left channel, but leaves the ring (right channel) open.

But use the correct cable and buy a cable with mono 3.5mm connectors. This will be the most reliable.
