    Default I got me am amp...but...

    Ok,I bought the Carver tfm22 amplifier,now I need some advice on how to run my speakers.I run a sub on speaker wire,my receiver doesnt have a sub output,the speaker wire goes in the sub then out and to the rti8's.Now I have the amp,should I continue to run the speakers the same way,or should I run the sub from the receiver and the speakers from the amp?I appreciate any advice:)

    what kind of sub do you have?

    I would run the speakers from your Carver amp. or what else would it run? that's what you got it for right?

    I may be confussing here,my reciever is pretty good,I thought I may run the sub off of it and the rti8's off the amp,the sub is powered so it just needs a signal

    I'm going to assume that your receiver DOES have preamp outputs....

    Just run the speaker wire from the receiver to the sub, but DON't run the speaker wire from the sub to the speakers. Instead, hook the pre-outs from the receiver to the amp, and wire your speakers to the amp's speaker terminals.

    Be SURE you don't connect a tape-out, or some such, to the amp---- It must be a preamp level output, controlled by the volume setting on the receiver.

    What receiver are you using?

    I also have the #685. I liked it for it's simple looks power (100 watts) and the Denon name along with the low low price of 400$ delivered. Sure those AV recievers sure are tops but I'm just powering a couple sets of speakers. If you ever get a chance That Denon integrated is cool looking too and it is only 80 watts. I've read that it supplies lots of current and will power some large tower speakers with ease.

    I bet your sub will sound great with your "speaks"! I'm considering a lot of stuff but recently been looking at SVS subs to supplement the speakers.
