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?
