I purchased a HTiB setup a few years ago that has the Yamaha YHT-493 as the receiver. I've recently upgraded my center/L/R speakers and now that we have moved into a larger house the Sub just isn't cutting it like it used to. I wanted to know if I could hook up the Polk 505 or the Klipsch RW-12d to this receiver. There is only a Subwoofer output from the receiver. I thought everything would be ok, but once I started looking at pictures and investigating hooking up a powered subwoofer, especially to HTiB receivers I am now having my doubts. Will either of these subs work? I cannot upgrade my receiver at this time, but I will be in the future. Thanks

VIZIO E601i-A3
AVR: Denon 3312CI
Front L/R: 2 Polk M60's
Center: Polk CS2
Surround L/R: Premier Acoustic PA-6s
Sub: PA-150 Subwoofer

Since your receiver has dedicated sub output jack on the back either one of those subwoofers will work fine.
No problem at all.
