Just invested in a REL Q150E Mk II and have never used a subwoofer before. I listen to music through my ROTEL CD02 and movies and SACD through a Pioneer 969avi. The CD is connected with a digital coaxial and the Pioneer with the i link. The REL has 2 connections. Low level (for movies lfe) and high level (music) and the catalogue indicates that i should connect my high level to my main speaker terminals. The dealer whom i bought the Pioneer amp from says the i need only connect the low level since the amp callibrates the sub for me. He says I do not need to use the active sub. The sound from the sub during movies is excellent. However when i listen to music on my ROTEL, I cannot hear the bass for music from the sub. 1) What is the best way to attach the bare wires from the high level to the amplifiers speaker posts? I'm using banana plugs for my Mission speakers? 2) The instructions for the REL say to set the main speakers at LARGE when using a surround sound receiver however the PIONEER manual says set the main speakers to SMALL when using a subwoofer. I'm confused! 3) Will the amplifier recognize what connection to use for the CD player and DVD or will i need to manually adjust this? 4) Do i need to turn off the sub from the mains when i am not using it to save power since there is no on/off switch or does the amp do that for me? Appreciate any help.
