Good afternoon!

After reading some of the posts in the DIY-Subwoofer forum I'm after a recommendation to connect my receiver to my amp. Should I...

Use an RCA to 1/4" Mono cable and run with it.

-or-

Use an RCA to XLR cable and run with it.

-or-

Use an RCA to XLR cable and go to a Samson S-Convert bumpbox, then XLR to the amp.

-or-

Something else?

The reason I ask is, the post I read explained how there's a signal difference when simply connecting the receiver to the amp without a bump box. The bump box increases the line level to what the amp is expecting. Does this make any sense? Thanks for your thoughts.

HowdyDudy,

If you find you need to match impedances and need some more gain, you might want look at the Reckhorn B-1 crossover. It gives you an adjustable subsonic frequency filter, high pass filter, bass boost and a master gain control. I'm running some big subs with my NAD hooked up to two QSC 1450 pro amps and I couldn't be happier. I'm also able to turn off all of my filters on the QSC amps so the B-1 can control and protect my drivers. With the amp's filters turned on, I loose some bass. I only need one B-1 to handle both amps.
