I have a denon avr-1910 and it has a poweroutlet on the back can I use the outlet to plug in my definitive powered sub. I have a monster power 1000 mk1000 but I am moving the sub in the corner of the room and the powercord won't reach the powercenter but it will reach the receiver. There is also a wall outlet near the subwoofer what would be the best.

Typically the outlets on the receivers are limited in how much power they can supply. On mine i think it's 100 watts. If your sub stays within those limits, you might be able to do it, but i would not recommend it. It's typically used to power other equipment, like a DVD player etc.

No. Don't plug the sub into the back of the receiver. Those outlets are for low amp draw devices. Usually less than an amp. You would be better off to use an extension cord with the proper gauge thickness for the run to the Monster power center.

Use the wall outlet near the subwoofer. If you have an extra surge suppressor you can use that between the wall outlet and the sub. I wouldn't use the AVR for the reasons others mentioned above.


I'm not sure about the extension cord to the Powercenter suggestion. Maybe others can comment on that suggestion.

Provided you use a suitable low enough gauge for the required amperage, there really isn't any problem with using an extention cord other than it can be a trip hazard.


The electronics can't tell whether the wire is in the wall or not.
