Using multiple subwoofers in a home theatre set-up can be a little more challenging. From the
single processor's LFE-output, it's simply possible to daisy chain subwoofers. It's also
possible to connect one sub to the left and one to the right front loudspeaker, using the high
level connection. Using this set up, it's most likely to adjust your processor's bass
management features. In case of doubt, please ask your dealer's advice.
Do I really need a subwoofer?
It depends on your tastes. For flat panel loudspeakers with a limited low frequency extension,
you probably need a subwoofer. Especially if you like organ music, synthesizers and modern
party music. Larger panels will extend towards 45Hertz. These will perfectly suit most middle
of the road repertoire without need for a subwoofer.
In a 5.1 or 7.1 home theatre system, a subwoofer is an undeniable part of the experience.
When you can't live without the dynamic power, the physical impact and the low frequency
extension a decent movie can provide, please run for a subwoofer. But, for different reasons,
you can do without sub. The only thing you have to do, is to reconfigure the av receiver's
bass management to route the lower frequencies to the front loudspeakers.
Should I unplug my subwoofer during lightning?
Yes, but try to unplug the sub and the rest of your equipment before the lightning is straight
above your house. Unplug the equipment physically from the AC-line. Switching it off or using
the stand-by mode does not protect at all against lightning.
Do I need a separate amplifier for my subwoofer?
Unless you buy 'passive' subwoofers: NO. Most subwoofers come with an inbuilt amplifier.
Those 'active' subwoofers only need a low level (rca) of high-level connection with existing
Do I need separate subwoofers for music and home theatre?
Basically, a really good subwoofer can provide optimal results for both applications. In daily
live, most people feel the need for a larger sub in their home theatre, because of the visceral
impact, that is inherent and part of the fun of watching movies. Apart from this, listening to
music needs a different balance between the subwoofer and the rest of the system, than
watching and listening to movies. Most av-processors will provide you with the opportunity to
simply make small adjustments, using the remote control.
Can I clean my Final subwoofer?
Yes, but first disconnect the AC-line. Clean only with a damp cloth. Never use cleansers or
chemicals. Never leave a wet cloth on the surface of the cabinet.
