Connecting Sub with no sub-out in Receiver?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Im thinking about buying an Onkyo tx-8522 stereo receiver and using this temporariy til I get things together for a 7.1 AVR. If I buy a sub, how can I hook it up to this 2.0 system. Im thinking about getting the H-100 per good reviews here. But, if I decide on another sub, what things should I look for in a sub so that I can connect it, if possible, to a standard type stereo receiver?

Thanks!

Ok - I think I found the answer - High level input? Does this lose anything in terms of sound/bass quality? I guess the crossover in the sub is utilised rather than the crossover in a AVR sub crossover?

It looks like there is a pair of RCA outputs on there. I would rather use those than speaker wire to connect a subwoofer simply for ease of connection.

And yes, using a non-LFE input will require that you use the crossover on the subwoofer.

As for things on a sub that would allow connection to a receiver w/o a subwoofer output, Line Ins or High Level inputs would both allow this.
