    Most subs have a high level input,which can be used to tap a feed from the output terminals of an amplifier,and use that as the input for the sub.

    What that won't do of course is to remove the bass frequencies and thus workload from the original amp,but it will allow you to run a sub to reinforce the bass perfectly well.

    Check to see that any sub you might have in mind has that facility.

    thanks for the info. basically i'm looking at buying a niam unitiqute with linn katan spakers and a linn sizmik sub, im worried that the unitiqute dosnt support a sub - bass is important to me. when you say tap a feed from output terminals do you mean connect the sub to one of the left/right speaker connections?

    i demoed a marantz cr603 yesterday which does seem to have a connector for a sub but was a bit disappointed with it's sound after the rave reviews i have read. not demo'd the niam unit yet but i really like the look of it.

    Why not try to get a demo of a linn dsi? Probably a better buy than the other stuff and would compliment your other items of equipment.

    It's a high frequency connection you use in this case; the cables connects to the sub and the wires connect to 2 of the negative outputs and one of the positive outputs

    I demo'd the REL T5 a week or so back and used this connection on my Marantz CR603
