View Full Version : "Low level LFE connection method!"
01-18-2003, 01:28 AM
Should I be going into the Line In (Unfiltered) port with one wire, instead of splitting the signal into the ports marked Line In (filtered)?OK I asked this question over two weeks ago. Unable to get an answer I had to break it down into kindergarten sized pieces to finally get answers from Polksters.
Following the illustrations in Polk’s book resulted in double filtering of the subwoofers signals.
Polk’s web site said, "Resist all temptation to use the subwoofer output jack-please!
This statement has caused me a lot of grief. Today’s modern equipment is perfectly able to use the subwoofer outlet. That is what it is there for.
What I learned here is that in my case all of the low tones from every source are reproduced using the low level LFE connection method to the sub.
Letting your Amp divert the Low signals directly to your subwoofer lightens the demands on your amp making it easier for it to use it's full force concentrating on mids and highs.
By using the "low level LFE connection method," to your sub, hook up will be easyer. One Moster Cable.
It will result in more efficient management of current demands on your Amp and better sound.

Nvm...ill answer his question...again! DUDE! its just a connection, try it out...Plug it in via speaker wire, IF u DO NOT like it - try the LFE connection, which sounds best to you, do that. Stop asking the same question....

I must admit getting a big laugh out of this thread.
I don't think Sumflow was asking a question. He was simply stating what he has (slowly) learned.
Sumflow: set all your speaks to small, your filter point to 80 Hz on your receiver, your LFE level to -3 on your receiver, and run one RCA cable from the sub out on the receiver to the LFE (unfiltered) port on the sub. Adjust bass volume AT the sub to your tastes.
Don't ask why anymore. Just do it. This is sound advice and you will not be missing any bass or double filtering and you will reap the benefits of better mids and highs and a cooler running receiver amp and less speaker wire running all over creation.

Maybe he's like that guy in the movie "Memento" who got whacked on the head and thereafter couldn't form new memories. The guy in the movie used to tatoo important info all over his body (hint, hint). ;)
