Without starting an all out war on this subject, I would like to know if a lot of you guys have blown the woofers out of your mains (set as large) while having your sub hooked up through the speaker out of your AVR.
I'm asking this because I prefer this set up as it seems to produce better sound out of my current system (mains set as large, sub No, hooked up with speaker wires). But I've heard that the bass produced during explosions while watching a movie can blow out the woofers if using this set up as the mains can't handle the bass coming out.
Right now I only have some old Energy 2.1e bookshelf speakers as mains but will soon have the Polk RTi8, CSi3 center, PSW 505 sub, R15 rears and Denon AVR-1706.
It is quite possible that i just dont know how to set up properly though the sub out. I've tried it in different configurations but just cant get it to sound right. Mains as large, mains as small, crossover at 40,60,80,100...
