    Can I connect a power amplifier to a powered sub? If the internal amplifier is damaged can I bypass it and use another amp? If yes, how?
    Thanks,
    Eduardo

    I have done this in the past. My subwoofer came equipped with speaker level input and output binding posts.
    I removed the AC unplugged amp from the cabinet. I then removed the wires to 1 pair of binding posts and attached the wires from the driver to the now unused posts.
    This made a convenient connection for external amplification.
    Make sure your amplifier selection is appropriate. Some manufactures use built in subsonic filters as well as low end EQ boost.
    I am not an expert on this. I'm sure others will reply.
