I recieved my Crown XLS1000 amp that I ordered to use as a sub amp.


I have run into a problem.. My Denon 1513 doesn't output a high enough voltage for the Crown amp to detect.


The only way it will work is if I put the front left and front right at -12db and put the sub to +12db, and then crank the volume until the Crown is happy..

Obviously I don't want this to be long term....


Is there something for home audio that I can purchase to plug my LFE line into, increase its voltage, and then run to the crown amp?


Thanks

Theres a kicker though....... I have another XLS1000 I'm using for the main towers.... and they don't like the whole +-12db thing..

You need an XLR -10db pad in-line with the crown and pre-amp
