    The line level connection can benefit those who do not have any bass management in their receiver. If you run the speaker wires from receiver to sub and then to main speakers, the sub's internal crossover will filter out the lower frequencies to the speakers. Since most A/V receivers have an LFE output along with built in crossovers, the preouts are normally used.
