How come when I set it up, so the receiver sends the signal to the subwoofer, than out to the speaker via the speaker cables. I get much (louder) bass? Than when I use the pre-out subwoofer cable? It's almost as though it's on a super low volume. Also if I use stereo (RCA) input, can I get bass via the pre-out?

Have you set Subwoofer to Yes on the receiver? How did you connect the pre out to the sub?

If you are only using a stereo source, then you have to make sure the sub is set to on in the AVR and the speakers set to small to get bass redirection to the pre out.

Did you set your speaker to SMALL when you utilized the pre-out or not?
