I never thought connecting a subwoofer would be so difficult. I just purchased the following: Harman Kardon H/K AVR330 Polk Audio RM6700 Sat speakers (5) Volydne CHT-8 powered subwoofer The manual from both Polk & Voldyne recomend connecting the receiver speaker level outputs to the subwoofer speaker level inputs then from there to the Front R/L speakers. The H/K manual disagrees and suggests connecting the speakers directly to the receiver while running an RCA jack line to the subwoofer input. I went to Polk and they say: "Connect the subwoofer to the Front Left & Right speaker level or preamp level outputs, set the Fronts to "Large" and Sub to "Off." Resist all temptation to use the subwoofer output jack--please." Note the "RESIST ALL TEMPTATION." I emailed H/K for help and they said their directions are correct. H/K's response to this is: "While this connection (Polk's) will provide a signal for your subwoofer, this will not allow you to take advantage of the LFE (bass) signals present in today's digital soundtracks. This connection will not allow you to utilize the ".1" signal in these soundtracks. The only way to get this signal would be using the receiver's dedicated subwoofer RCA output, while connecting your speakers to their respective terminals on the receiver." So, being a very confused newbie, I need some help here. Who do I believe? Harmon Kardon (receiver mfr) or Polk & Voldyne (speaker mfr)? How should I connect the system Thanks.
