I recently upgraded my A/V receiver, but am getting low sub output through the rca hookup. I have had the sub for two years, but have always used high level input since my previous receiver had no sub output connector. I have exchanged the receiver 3 times with no luck (the first DSX850S had NO sub output at all!). I have tried every setting possible, and with all my subwoofer levels turned as high as they go, I can barely tell the sub is even working. It does work somewhat, but especially with the levels all turned up, it should be close to blowing!! I have had it hooked up to other receivers, and it pounds like it should... My receiver is a Pioneer DSX810S, and the sub is a Pioneer 150 watts and 10". Anyone seen this particular problem before?? Should I get the same response from the low level input as I would the high level?? Will it hurt my receiver to turn the sub setting up high? Also the sub is on a cement floor now, so maybe it won't be pounding so obviously? Maybe it's just me? Any help here would be appreciated....
