* hook up the four satellites and the center channel to corresponding speaker posts on amplifier as normal;

* use standard speaker wire to connect right High Level Input post on rear of subwoofer to FRONT RIGHT speaker post on amplifier. Connect left High Level Input post on rear of subwoofer to FRONT LEFT speaker post on amplifier. Do NOT use a subwoofer cable to connect the subwoofer to your amp. When hooked up correctly, you will have two sets of speaker wire running from each FRONT speaker post on your amp...one to a satellite and one to the subwoofer.

* set front speakers to LARGE on your amplifier

* set amplifier to indicate "No Subwoofer"

* set the Bass and LPF dials on the front of your subwoofer (I set mine at 1 o'clock).


Just something I read on Audioreview.com

Yes I have heard of this method once.


Because your sub is not drawing anything from your amp.

I beleive there is no drama here. You are actually bypassing and subwoofer crossovers from your processor and feeding full range frequency to main speakers and sub.


You are reinforcing the bottom of the end to your main speakers set to large.


Be carefull to this method although you can do it. Your sub must have adjustable crossover so you can filter out the frequecies at obove its normal operating parameters.:)
