    denon pma-2000r

    so i have the denon pma2000r amp and im currently running energy c-500 speakers but i was wondering if i would be able to put a sub in the system ? but i noticed that this model doesnt have a output for a sub but the denon 2000ivr does ? so i was wondering if i would still be able to some how hook one up thanx

    Nice amp!

    I believe it has a pre out, in a stereo system, you connect the sub to these...

    have you considered different speakers too?

    Keep them spinning,

    You can still hook up a sub. The sub must have speaker level inputs. You hook up the sub to the speaker outputs of your power amp along with the speaker wire to your speakers. Subs like REL use this approach and prefer it.

    yeah i knew i could but i wasnt sure how, cause right now i have my speakers biwired and they sound pretty good, and have alot of bass but im also still breaking them down, which might have something to do with the lack of bass, wel its not really a lack its just i wouldnt mind having more. are REL subs expensive ?

    REL subs start at about $700 and go up into the thousands of dollars. Many of the Velodynes have speaker level inputs, older Martin Logans do as well but the new ML's only have line level.

    These Velodyne Impact subs are a good value and have speaker level input-

    These velo's are a better sub-

    You also may be able to find a used Velodyne SPL sub.
