    I am talking about those SVS original drivers. If I use a receiver (to power the driver) and feed it with the signals from the LFE channel from the pre/pro, will it work as a sub? Or do I really have to buy the x-over? Thank you for your inputs. I'm new to this subwoofer thingy. [​IMG]

    Your LFE output is the crossover. I'd put it in an enclosure though. [​IMG]

    Like Johnny said your Pre/Pro has the crossover. But without an enclosure the driver won't do all that much bass wise. An enclosure isn't something that can be optional with a sub.

    Thank you for the replies. I did realized that I need an enclosure for the driver but forgot to mentioned about it. While you're at it [​IMG], could you possibly tell me where I can get one? Possibly from the SVS website? Thanks again. lk

    As far as I know SVS does not sell their enclosures seperately.
    Most people who have been picking up the original SVS drivers have been building their own.
    Pat Sun has a very elaborate page for building a box style one:

    He also has some great pages on building sonotube ones. All the construction ideas are there, but I'd contact Tom V about what dimensions and port lengths to go with.
