    Wow, just got my new sub this morning.

    specs are --

    New PB-120
    2 x 8" speakers
    rca in and outs
    parallel input
    auto on / off with signal
    120 watts)

    Specs on pioneer VSX-604s. ( for reference)

    Continous power output : Front (1kHz THD 1% 8oams) 165 W + 165 W.

    Continous power output (dolby pro logic): Front 110w + 110w center 110w rear 110w

    Speakers : Jenson (DR-1205) 130 W 92 inpedance



    On top of the sub there are 4 ports. A right line in + line out and a left line in + line out. The seller said that he would send me an RCA cord (the same as my CD player cord RCA) which would work fine.

    I guessed that i should run either one of the plugs from the line out on either left or right to the sub out on the amp.

    Is this correct ? How come the sub has left/right ports when the amp only just has one sub out ???


    Also i noticed that when testing the sub at low volume, it makes nxt to no difference. R the jenson floor standings just drowing out the twin 8s ???? I even disconnected the jensons to see whither the sub was actually running !!

    // Note this was at lowish volume.

    I really hope this is not another mistake ----

    Also be sure all speakers are set to SMALL in the receiver's speaker setup menu.
