Phase verification: If the lengths of the cables between the subwoofer and the audio equipment are different, phase problems may occur. At this point, you can test whether the phase is correct by exchanging the positions of the red and black lines. The correct phase should have the red wire connected to the positive terminal of the audio device and the black wire connected to the negative terminal.

Ground wire connection: If the audio equipment has a ground terminal, the ground wire of the subwoofer cable needs to be connected to this terminal.
