Connecting Non Amplified Sub Woofer to A/V Reveiver
This is my 1st attempt at setting up Home Theater. I am going to purchase the Onkyo TX-SR500 and JBL S-Series Center Speaker. I plan on using my Polk Audio 5a Monitors for the fronts and Polk Audio RM2000 Satellites for the back Surrounds. I also have Polk Audio RM1000W Sub Woofer that is not a powered sub. The way it is connected now on my old receiver is I have left and right wires from the receiver going to the sub woofer and then the satellites going off that. Two questions and I think I have 1st one answered myself. Can this non-amplified sub woofer get connected to the subwoofer preoout connector on the receiver? I am thinking not but not forsure. Second, if I hook the satellites and sub woofer up like mentioned above, it would seem to me that when tweaking in the speaker size with the receiver ie.. large, small... that this would not only affect the satellites but also the sub woofer. Is this something I need to worry about? Is there some other way to hook them up? Thanks for any help in the area.
