    Default RMDS-1 question

    So I'm new to the forum and I've been a very satisfied RMDS-1 owner for several years. I've finally entered the 21st A/V century and invested in an HDTV and Blu Ray player (Panasonic TC-P54G25 and Oppo BDP-83). I would like to upgrade my receiver to HDMI connectivity.

    Is it possible to connect my existing Polk subwoofer to a new receiver?
    I have not been able to figure out a way to do so.

    Any advice would be appreciated. I'd prefer to not invest in an entirely new speaker system at this point but will do what it takes.
    Thanks
    Steve

    Hello Steve,
    Welcome to the CP Forum. I'm afraid it would be very difficult to use the RMDS1 sub with another receiver. The RMDS1 controller sends a trigger signal to the sub-woofer's amplifier turning it on (and off). You wouldn't have a way of doing that with an external receiver. Also the necessary low pass filtering is accomplished in the RMDS1 processor, not in the sub. Then there's the problem of not having a convenient RCA line level input or speaker level for that matter. The DB25 cable provides all of the input and trigger connections.
    Regards, Ken

    wow.. so disappointed to read this..
    i, too am an rmds1 owner.. the receiver is starting to 'cut out' etc.. and doesn't have all the new technology, so my wife bought me a new denon receiver for Christmas.
    i was hoping to use my rmds1 speakers, including the sub... as i do love the sound from them...

    i suppose it's not a problem to use the wall and centre speakers (OR IS IT..???).. am i really out of luck with the sub..??

    if so, what type of sub is recommended for my new denon receiver ..??

    what can i do with the rmds1 sub...??? is it of any value to anyone... suggested sale price...??

    thanks a lot.. and Merry Christmas to everyone..!!!!
