Audio help

post #1 of 4

Well here's where I stand. I'm going to be buying a Denon AVR-688 and some Klipsch Quintet II speakers. But now I'm stuck on the subwoofer. The receiver can only power 75w so how can I get it to the 250rms demanded on most subs? What does "powered" mean? Is it that I only need an input and it'll take care of the power needed?

Or would I be better off just buying a LG 1000W Home Theatre System (HT963SA) from my local Futureshop?

A 'powered' subwoofer has its own power source (an additional plug) that is separate from the power from the receiver. It just needs an audio signal from the receiver to work.
