    This is a subject Im really clueless about and will probobly need help. Some new SVS+ owners are having problems with the impedence from the recievers sub out and the pro amps. I am building a diy sub and am going to use a pro amp to power it. I also use a Denon reciever which supposively has a very low impedence siganl which I think is not good. Can someone educate me on this topic and tell me what to do if I run into this problem with my amp/reciever choice?

    Thanks,

    Greg

    I wouldn't worry about it too much. There are a few solutions if you run into it. I'd bet $1 you won't.

    It is rare that this is an issue, and I think the SVS issue is one that is getting blown out of proportion because of some ignorance of electrical/audio concepts by some of the posters.
