hooking up a powered sub to a htib
6 replies to this topic

Hello, I have a Samsung HT-E5500W htib system. It has a dedicated sub output that powers a sub. I would like to know if I could hook a separate powered sub to the unit without any harm? The receiver speaker connector is a plug like wire that plugs into the back of the Samsung. The sub has speaker inputs as well as line level inputs. Thanks for any assistance.

1. Your HTiB is lucky to have 5watts per channel. Maybe 10 if you count an enormous amount of distortion. 2. You would need a (meant for car stereo) high level to low leve adapter(exactly what it is called) 3. You have to hope the 5 watts per channel is "enough" to create some semblance of a line level signal for a subwoofer to use.

By the way, I know that thing "says 1000w"... That is a PMPO rating. How is PMPO "calculated"? They take one "amp chip" run it for the briefest of instances to the point it almost catches on fire. Whatever that brief 1/100000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000th of a second amount of power is...is what they claim. If you took this... http://www.amazon.co...ds=onkyo nr5010 and applied PMPO to it...it would have somewhere around 16,000 watts. And to show how ludicrous 1000 watts is...that thing pulls 92 watts off the wall....92 watts turns into 1000? Really??? I come up with 16,000 by... 1000 watts divided by the 92 watts it really pulls off the wall...and apply that ratio to the 1488 watts the 5010 really does pull off the wall.

Oh wait, my calculations are off... Your Samsung is responsible for BD/DVD drive as well on that 92 watts. Lets remove 10 watts... 1000 divided by 82 is 12.2(rounding up). 1488 (we can leave that be, cause there is no "DVD drive to spin") x 12.2 = 18,154. Now there is a loud stereo.

Ok, I did wonder about the high power rating for the Samsung. I knew the unit was not audio quality and I guess I will have to live with it. I did some reading regarding your post for "PMPO" rather technical and it looks like the marketing people had a good time. Here is a link going into a great deal of detail regarding "PMPO." thx for the answer. [
