Did you check the DVD's bass management options in the menu system to see if the LFE is active? Just a thought, since I have no knowledge of your DVD or the RELs actual operation.

i assume you do not have the owners manual????? if not go on rel site and see if they might. some manufactures do this so you can download the manuals. i think you have to look at the sumiko site and then go to rel as i believe they are their distributor. i think you can go into the tape loop or aux. if you have a selector that says recording.try putting the rca from the storm into that. i looked at my integrated amp and it has recording and input selector. turn the sub's volume down and try tape loop and then slowly turn up the rel. i believe that will work, not as good as the neutrik from having a rel stadium 3. are you aware of the proper set up of rel's?????? if not i can explain it to you as they have to be corner loaded for best results and thats the starting point. there is also certain situations that you do not use the spikes either
It's a good thing you got no sound when you hooked up the sub the way you did because it would have been at full volume. You need a preamp or some device with a volume control between the DVD player and the sub. I don't know specically how the REL works but you will probably have to use the speaker outs on your amp to get to the sub unless you have a preamp out loop.
You cannot connect your sub until you get a Neutrik Speakon cable. When connected to the sub you "high level" controls will be used for adjustments. The cable connects to the same terminals as your main speakers on the amp in the following fashion. Red to positive right, yellow to positive left and black to negative right. This will allow you to use the volume control on the integrated as the master volume control for the sub. (I own the Stadium III).
thanks for those who have responded...Matchstikman, thanks for the Signalcable tip....I like his cables....didn't know he made a REL cable.
I do not think it is possible to run RCA direct from the DVD Subwoofer output (Denon 5900), the REL does have a LOW LEVEL gain control, but even at full volume, there is no sound......I believe the output direct from an RCA out of a DVD player is much too low to show any output to the SUB, since it is usually amplified to Line Level via a Preamp or processor, normally....
I've actually found the connectors and REL posts its wire diagrams on their website, so I will try a DIY cable initially. ..Until, I get the Neutrik Speakon conntector, the REL sits silent.....
