Yikes! The way you have it hooked up now, the receiver is sending the FULL BANDWIDTH SIGNAL to your subwoofer. The Main L&R outputs are meant for the front left and right channels, not the subwoofer.

Take sushi's advice and use a single cable between the sub and the dedicated Subwoofer Output.

Yes Dan, this was discussed in the thread you started 12/21/02 on Home Theater, which you might review, and your owners manual also describes the connection. In short, use one of the two cables(maybe tape the other one so it doesn't flop around)from the one sub out on the 1300 to either one(makes no difference, they join inside the sub)of the EP350 low level inputs. Since this now sends bass below about 90hz to the sub, set all speakers "small" on the 1300 and turn the EP350 crossover(not the level control!!!)all the way up to get it out of the way of the 90hz crossover the 1300 does. I'm also curious as to the speaker size and EP350 crossover settings which you've been using.

boy do i feel dumb. if i understand..disconnect one input wire to the sub, and tape its end off. then do the same with the other end of the paired cable. tape off the same cable, and move the other to the sub output on the yammi. correct?

Yes Dan, it's best to use a single coaxial cable sub connect, but using one of your double cable should be satisfactory.

And incidentally, I understand that when you switch to the "B" speaker on your 1300, that although that shuts off all the "A" speakers properly connected(mains, center, sub, surrounds)it has no effect on the main pre-outs which you've been using to drive the sub. That's why the sub stayed on.

read sushi's reply, and will connect and disconnect as advised. but looking at my manual, there are connections for the surround speakers well illustrated which i followed. so simply put, what are the "output" main and rear used for? the surrounds are wired to rear, L & R, center, fronts, etc.

i have two 60's for fronts, set to large. the vp100, and qs8's set to small. i was also sending lfe to main & sub as it sounded fuller. maybe system will sound better with sub properly connected.

The Main, Center, and Rear Outputs are provided for those who wish to use external amplifiers. They are also called "pre-outs" which means the signal is sent out before any amplification or processing is done to it.

Still further, Dan, all of the outputs in that one section are to be used when an external amp is driving the speaker in question; it sends a low-level signal to those amps, bypassing the 1300's amps. The only use you have for that set of outputs is the single sub out, for the sub, which of course has its own amp. I'd also suggest setting the LFE on the 1300 to sub instead of both. Probably what you've been getting is too "full".
