2 channel Onkyo/PSW10 Setup and Input Voltage?
My first post about my first Polk setup: 2-RTi A1's and 1-PSW10. Goods still in transit but want to forgo any possible connection- or power-related issues while optimizing audio performance.
I have read all the posts here as well as the manual.
Two areas of question:
1) The Onkyo TX 8511 will be driving the configuration. It is phenomenal classic receiver. As such is has provisions for neither "Sub Out" nor "Front/Rear/Center". "A/B" only. Of the several options discussed in this group, it seems the appropriate option is to connect
a. Onkyo "Speaker" out to PSW10 "Speaker In"
b.PSW 10 "Speaker Out" to corresponding RTi A1.
Is my understanding correct?
If not, please provide solution.
If so, what is recommended cable type and gauge for making the connections?
In the above configuration, what is driving the RTi A1 speakers, The ONKYO (100W/channel) or the PSW10 (50W RMS)?
What "Cross Over" or other settings are advisable?
2) What is the actual Voltage Input for the PSW10? I have read 220v in one place and 110 in others? Onkyo is set at 120v.
Thanks in advance for sharing the benefit of your collective experience.
PSW10 Subwoofer Radio Bleed Through
I have a new Yamaha RXV471 receiver New Polk Monitor 70's and Polk PSW10 Sub. I have the anoying won't go away Radio frequency Interference. I bought excellent quality double insulated sub cable and a Y addapter all high quality. I have tried running just the one cable by itself as well as using the single cable. Both same problem of RFI. Honestly it was better with a cheap RCA cable. I have read up on this issue and it seems like I may just have to return or sell the sub. There is a big cell tower about a mile away from me. Being that the sub is not insulated? I have read about using ferrite cores etc. Any suggestions greatly appreciated! I kind of wished I never heard the Sub as it is great! Still the RFI is a bear I may just not want to fight and settle for the not so much bass 70's
