Hi, I just got my SVS PB-10 NSD, and as with my last sub (a Velodyne CHT-8), it has an auto-off sensing feature. The problem is that it doesn't always come on when I'd like it to (for example when watching TV, because we watch at a much lower volume than we do with movies). I've tried turning the sub's gain down and the receiver's sub-out up, but it doesn't really solve the problem. Now, I know the solution is to just leave the sub on all the time, but that seems like it would be constantly drawing power (is it drawing much? It seems like it must be drawing enough to warrant a signal-sensing feature). So, I'm wondering, would it be possible to use a current-sensing switch (like they use with 12V triggers, for example, http://www.sears.com/sr/javasr/produ...seBVCookie=Yes), so that when my receiver turned on, my sub would too, and when my receiver goes off, so does the sub? Or would this give some sort of adverse results?
