1st of all - I know very very little about subs. I have a OLD Yamaha that is about 6in across and ALL speaker cables run from the reciever to the sub and THEN to the speakers. THAT is my trailing edge technology. My reciever is a Yamaha RX-V520 - certainly not top of the line. http://www.yamaha.co.jp/english/prod...ht/rxv520.html Talk me into SVS and give me clue on what will fit into my 14/20 living room with said reviever.
