    So, I was looking into buying a mini-system for my bed-room, and I think i've decided to go with the Klipsch Synergy series speakers mated with an Integra DTR-7.3 receiver.

    Anyway, the subwoofer model KSW-12 has a 12 in driver that has a continuous wattage of 105, with a max wattage of 440. Does this mean I would be safe to run the sub with one channel from my Samson S700 amp. That would be 350 watts continous. As long as I stay below the max, would my the sub be safe?

    Thanks,
    TJ

    The KSW12 is a powered sub. That is a description of the on board amp. Unless you make some modifications to the sub you won't be able to use the S700 to power it.
