Onkyo TX SR806
Crown XTI 4000

Will the ART CleanBox be required for optimum signal or could I get away with XLR to RCA adapters?
I will be running subs off the Crown. Thank you for your input!

It has always been my understanding that XLR inputs are best used when long runs of cabling are required, if the connections are short say under 2M then RCA should suffice....

John, I think he was wondering of the Onkyo’ sub output would have a strong enough signal. :D

Newell,

Can’t speak for your receiver specifically, but a search shows there seems to be plenty of people on the Shack using this amp, so I’d be surprised if you have a problem. However, I came across these posts that indicate that the XTi might not be the best choice for a subwoofer amplifier:
