    Listen carefully....

    Take the plug in your hand...

    Reach closely to the receiver

    aim for the input on the subwoofer, SLOWLY, do not damage it!...

    put the cable in the input...SLOWLY...

    When it is attached....

    slowly back away....

    turn on the receiver...

    play a song....

    Low pass....20hz?

    high pass...100hz?

    Sid, I'm guessing his stereo integrated doesn't have a sub pre-out; so I'm figuring he wants to run two subs, using the *polk method* in each instance. Maybe I've got it wrong, not sure here.

    I assume when you're questioning top or bottom terminals, you're referring to the RTi70s? The reason there are two different terminals is to give you the option of bi-wiring your speakers. Using either terminal will run your speakers, assuming you've left in the gold plated jumpers.

    Someone fancier than I will have to instruct you on how to wire and place your subs ... and for Christ's sake I wish they'd do just that!

    Gle,

    The reason the sub has the high pass inputs are for folks who are running a sub/sat combo with no sub out from their recievers. The reason it is "high level" or Speaker level is because it takes an amplified or "high" signal, uses an internal crossover and sends an unamplified bass signal to the internal bass amp on the sub...then sends the amped power from the reciever on to the sats.

    The low level input just gets the umamped signal straight from the reciever. This is the best way to go if the reciever has a sub out.

    Hope that helps,
    Brett

    Hey now.. it's the weekend.. not everyone hangs out in here 24/7 you know. The guys in here are all offering advice on their own free time.. because they love Polk, audio, etc.. and enjoy helping others. So be careful how you treat others in here. Rants and sh*t don't fly here.

    MOST times doing a search can yield the answer to most questions. but some people are to lazy to do it. it's so easy. More often then not.. the ? has been asked several times over the course of the past year. Check the archives first.... that's why they're there. Crikey!
