    my Technics SA-EX900 has a built in 100W sub amp.. the back of the unit also sports an output for a powered sub... would using my receivers amp or a powered sub sound better?

    I would suspect that the Technics amp is not the best quality. Also is the 100 watts max or RMS. Also what is you budget for a sub? You also may have a harder time finding a passive sub rather then an active one.

    YOu'd be better off with a powered sub. The less work your receiver has to do the better.
