Hey guys, First and foremost thanks to avforums for providing a wonderful platform for newbies like me to post questions and get professional answers for my problems Now to begin with my problem, I was fortunate enough(or not) to get a Bose acoustimass 10 or 15 ( I dont know which one) without the Bass module and with a Yamaha RXV-795 AMP from my dad. I want to hook this up to my TV. So I have connected the TV to the amp with optical cable, and connected the sats directly to the amp. I have not started using this system because of two reasons. 1) I dont have anything to play the lower freqs. 2) I have read a bit on this where it says if I use the bose sats without its bass module then there is a chance that I will end up with a dead amp. My question to you guys is. a) Can I use any other sub(suggest some model pls) and connect the sats directly to the amp.( I read something about setting a High crossover though I have no idea what that is or if my amp supports that setting). b) If not that then how do I get this system up and running? c) How good is my amp in today's world? (can you relate this to any computer component so I can understand where it stands, eg. its like an i7 5820X or gtx 780)? d) Any noob friendly guide where I can learn about audio basics? Please note, any help on this matter is highly appreciated. I thank you guys for taking out the time to read this. Thanking you pros in anticipation.
