    Receiver vs. separate amplifier question

    Majority of what i read is there is a significant improvement in sound especially in the bass department if a separate amp is used to drive speakers. My question is what if the speakers are set to small (plus an active sub & receiver crossover @ 80hz), will there still be a big improvement in...

    Does room size affect how low the subwoofer can go?

    hi to all! my room is about 17' x 13' x 9' (L,w,H). i am wondering if i use a sub that is capable of reproducing 20hz and below like the servo15, will i hear or feel these frequencies? if not then i can save some money and buy a smaller sized sub that can just go to about 24hz. thanks in advance.
