Get the Paradigm x-30 active crossover. Usually one available here.
Hmmm -- what's the point of the active x-over since Balthus does NOT have a pre-amp OUTPUT (i.e. you can't drive the active x-over with the power amp's output..)
Balthus: if I understand correctly, you want to drive 2.1 channels from the Acurus?? I.e. say, a cd (two channel stereo) with a subwoof? If so, doesn't yr subwoof have a "low pass" control? If so, you don't need another active x-over.
You DO need a pre out, though.
Or am I totally confused..
Gregm is not confused, and unless I am, the active crossover idea won't help. Kr4 did motivate me to think a bit further, and the sub has speaker-level inputs, so presumably I could just run speaker cable from the amp to the sub. However, something makes me think that the line level connection would be better quality. True?..and if so, am I better off with the adapters Kr4 mentions, or does their inclusion offset any sonic advantage to using line level vs. speaker level? Thanks guys, Ben
Okay, now tell me this. Let's say I run a second run of wire from my amp to the sub high level, what if I run a line level connector from the pre I'm using for my ht system...I'd have two inputs to the sub, one for stereo use, one for ht use, any harm done? what happens if I accidentally run stereo and ht at the same time? my, said pooh, this stuff sure is complicated! ben
