i recently replaced my 1992 technics's 4 channel reciever with a pioneer vsx-1019ah-k 7.1 surround sound stereo.

my front stage speakers are some cerwin vega 15" cabinets, i cant remember the model #'s but they are late 90's cerwin vega's, the rear speakers are technics 15" cabinets, all 4 speakers are 3 way speakers, my problem is that the new receiver removes the low frequencies from the speakers, it wasnt till after i purchased it that i realized it is supposed to have a surround sound powered subwoofer

i just want to use my 4 speakers for right now, is it possible to set it for just 4 speakers? or am i kinda screwed now and need to just get a real 7.1 surround sound setup? eventually i want to go that route, but for now i cant afford it, just the subwoofer i want is expensive, let alone the other speakers.


can anyone point me in the right direction? am i better off just getting another 4 channel receiver that allows complete frequency pass through?

You should be able to just set all speakers to Full Range/LARGE with no subwoofer and be good to go. Run the MCACC EQ setup and that should do the trick as well.

Yes, setting the speakers to Large and specifying no subwoofer will prevent the AVR from rerouting low frequencies to the non-existent sub. However, some processors simply discard the LFE channel rather than folding it into the main channels.
