i would not suggest doing that, i don't know what kim will have to say about it though but if you turn up you reciever than you will distort the subs some also it will draw power from everything and you probably won't be able to hear it hardly at all i would suggest getting all of your components hooked up and then buy an amp for them if your reciever doesn't do the job and then going out and buying an amp for the subs and getting them all hooked up
