Just an update, I got my PL-200 yesterday! BIC technician never returned a single call from yesterday and the main office didn't seem to understand how I was trying to hook up the sub to the HTIB receiver. I did get some really helpful advice from the forums and from Crutchfield. They are always knowledgable. All I needed to do was take the wiring from the passive sub and place it the left side of the positive/negative ports on the high level in of the PL-200.
I only have the sub a little less than 3/4 of the way up. Playing at low volumes to get it broken in. Worlds better than the HTIB sub rated for around 250 watts. It pales in size and sound compared to the PL-200!
This thing hits low and clean! Even watching a Netflix tv series it sounded much better. Actually sounds like a real home theatre.
I got a great deal on Black Friday of 259.00 shipped. If anyone is thinking about ditching their passive sub or even getting a sub for a system they are peicing together this is a great choice. I can't wait to see what it does after I let it break in!
I hope this helps someone in my situation.
