It is a Kenwood from a $650 HTIB several years ago. I don't even remember the size of the driver. Grill doesn't remove. Box is big enough for a 12", but let's say it's a 10", and I can't imagine it is even powered.


Just 2 spring clips in the back for speaker wire.


I have Aperion 6T's coming. I don't know if I should even bother to use this old sub.


I will be running MCACC, so maybe I'll connect it and let the AVR work out the sub. I imagine the 6T's go lower than that 'true' sub.


What would you do?


I will add a sub later. Maybe an Aperion, but leaning towards a SVS SB12NSD right now.

I'd go with a new sub. Something from SVS, eD, HSU, or Epik. Aperion makes a nice sub too, but a bit pricey for what you get.

I doubt if you can connect it. It is a passive sub with speaker-type terminals and all modern AVRs have unamplified, line-level outputs for a sub.


Get a new one.

I looked at the specs of your new speakers and agree with you that they are probably better at the low end than your HTIB passive sub. I would leave the sub out and set your reciever to large for the fronts. I have done this in the past with a pair JBL floorstanders and recently with some Paradigm Monitor 5's. The results were actually pretty good. When you are able to add a powered sub set your fronts to small.
