Class A/B.


If following REL's advice and if about to use the high level neutrik connection as well as the low level RCA connection from the AV receiver's subwoofer pre out, I'd suggest you don't and simply use the LHE low level connection. There's nothing to be gained by also using the high level connection as well as the low level connection.

Simply use the AV receiver's own bass management to divert frequencies away from the speakers and redirect them to the sub using just the low level connection.

Thanks for the reply, I dont disagree with you, Rel are adament tha I should use the high level neytrik connection. I would like to try it but need to know the amplifier class type to wire it up. Do you know the class of amplifier it is?

REL have always implied that there's something to be gained by making both a high and a low level connection at the same time. THis simply isn't the case. If you buy a BK sub which also includes a neutrik connection and independant frequency filter etc then they do not make the same suggestion. THe fact that BK used to make subs for REL goes someway to dismiss what REL are suggesting you do. THere's no real reason for you having to have both a low level and a high level connection. THe high level connection would only really of be any use if treating your front left and right speakers as being full range which goes against what is generally suggested when using an AV receiver with intehral bass management.

Having both a high and a low level connection is simply making the setup and setting it up more complex than it needs to be.

Yamaha AV receivers use class A/B and not D amplification. Only Pioneer really use class D and it would be Class D amplification that would cause you issues relative to a neutrik high level connection.



As mentioned, BK used to manufacture subwoofers for REL:
