    I've never used that myself, hooking from the receiver to the sub then speakers to it, maybe that's if your receiver doesn't have a sub pre-out you set it up that way to use the sub, but then they only have it for two speakers, front stereo.

    Sorry on that, I've never used that, nor has anyone I know, hopefully if someone who does/has who has read this thread can let you know.

    That isn't bi-amping, bi-amping you'd say if the receiver can do 7.1 you only have a 5.1 speaker config so you can use the surround left and rights not being used by anything to bi-amp your fronts.

    In most cases it really isn't necessary like I said, it can provide ricer sound and better bass but other things effect that as well.

    ahh ight nice nice
    i happen to have 1 from radioshack
    ok, ok so what do you think would be better for me...
    go out and buy the M-Audio Av40's then later on buy a nice Subwoofer

    or buy the PolkAudios Monitor 40's and connect them to a reciever then buy the subwoofer later on?

    here the layout of my room just to get an understanding of how they would look on my desk
    Sorry but its a huge pic :]

    Depends on budget, but either is fine, but the polk's would be higher quality than the M-Audio's if that is important for music playback/reproduction and depending on how you like the sound without a sub get that later on. But where would the amp go, maybe to the left where that towel or curtain thing???? lol is and put the picture on top of the amp and just situate your speakers on some sort of stand you said you wanted.

    Some things will sound fine w/o the sub but metal and hard rock etc will sound thinner and not as rich but to compensate you can try to up the db of the bass in your speakers and lower the treble or keep that at default +0db and use +2 or even +4 if it does that/goes that high for the bass.

    Does that receiver have a model number, I can try to spec out to see if the impedance will work with those speakers?

    Hmm.. as I thought, something that old kinda hard to find info on. Keep in mind a newer receiver will help those speakers sound better but it'll be okay and fine but the polks were 8ohms. I can't find that spec on it. Maybe look at the back and find something like looks like a horseshoe, then it'll say a number then let me know what that says.

    Okay, so 8-16ohms it can handle those polk's are rated 8 ohms so it will be fine on that amp, but I'd plug it in and set the impedance to 8 on that unless it does it automagically lol <-- intended. Some do some don't.

    If it one you set manually and it's on 4ohms and you hook up the speakers Woopsie lol. Well basically if the receiver said say 8 ohms only and you hooked up 4ohms speakers bye bye receiver most likely the reverse just wouldn't draw as much power so the speakers won't be running ie wont sound as good as they can.

    As long as the impedance is 8ohms or 8 is in the range then yeah it'll work.
