Hello everyone. I've been reading around the forums and must say that this place is awesome!!Wish I would have found it sooner. After a little reading I soon realized the need for a sub in my small HT.My budget was $200 dollars and while looking around at sears(looking at the sony) the salesperson was marking down the CV LW10 to $179. So I said, what the heck and took it home. Hooked it up using the line level connectors and set all my speakers to small. Watching LOTR last night I couldn't believe how clear my speakers sounded. The sub was strong but I'm still not sure how to properly set it up. I need to blend it in with the other speakers, I can tell where the boom is comming from. This is what I have: 1)sony str-db830 receiver 2)sony mf515 front 3)sony mb105 surround 4)sony cn490 center 5)cerwin-vega LW-10 sub Wow!! this turned out to be a long one for my first one Any suggestiong or comments about how to get the best out of this little system of mine would be greatly appreciated. Thanks..... PS: be kind I'm a newbie!!
