I've looked through the threads on the forum but haven't found an answer yet, I apologize if this has been covered.
I recently purchased a Polk Atrium Sub 10 (underpowered sub).
I have an outdoor 5.1 surround sound system for watching movies (3 pairs of Atrium 4, 1 pair is wired as the center channel)
For stereo use, Polk has a wiring set up where you inter-wire the sub10 with your stereo speakers, but this doesn't work with a surround sound system, since each channel has designated sound coming out of it.
So the question is, what is the best way to wire the sub? The options I've been able to come up with are:
1) Wire it in the same way Polk suggests with the Front Channel
2) Get a Sub Amp and run the Receiver to the Sub Amp and the Sub Amp to the Sub 10
3) Give up and return the Sub 10 because it just won't work with a surround sound system
Any help would be hugely appreciated! I'm fairly new to the audio world, but I have experience with electronics so bare with me if I struggle to understand wiring instructions.
Thanks in advance!
