wthell is that 9v battery for exactly??
1. i bet... but....
2. you do? what's the model #? i don't think ive ever seen any receiver that can do what you are saying.
if its a passive sub, it will need outboard amp. since its bose, ill presume its a POS so you probably dont need a strong amp. otherwise, for any other passive sub, id get its own dedicated, good amp, probably a pro amp. behringer are affordable, and it would be on my short list. you will need bass mgmt, whether passive or active.
i presume you have never heard a good sub in your life.
i just purchased a new home which came pre-wired for whole home audio. the guy who did the work also put in a bose lifestyle (in-wall) sub in my living room. the bose dealer who put it in tells me that the sub is only compatible with bose equipment. if that's the case, i'm either going to rip it out and put something else in, which i don't want to fool with, or, just leave it and not use it at all. in the closet where all wiring is home run to... there is a standard speaker cable that pops the sub with a 9 volt battery.
1. is there any way to use a non-bose amp/av receiver with this sub??
2. if i have a receiver that will only send low frequency to this sub via standard speaker cable... how could there be a "compatability issue?"
