Where are you? We just got out of the basement ourselves (Channahon).

I've heard the bic f12 is a great entry subwoofer. I have my own built system in wall, so I can't speak to it, but that one is highly recommended on avs from what I've seen.

Yeah, it passed just south of here. Sirens and everything.

No, I didn't hear the music. I wasn't really trying to hear it, but definitely didn't get the thumping like I read about.

The front speakers are L&R Aerial 10T, Center Aerial CC5 and the subs are Aerial SW12's. I also have a Velodyne sub in the rear of the room. The other speakers are all Aerial also with SR3's for the sides and Model 6 for the rears. These are all powered by Classe' amplifiers.

Back on track and sorry op for side tracking your thread. You do not need to buy a new sub, if you are happy with the one you have. You can hook the new receiver up the same way, with the speaker wires going to the sub and then your front speakers. Set the front to full range on the new receiver and your all set. You will get better bass and sound integration with a powered sub and using the dedicated sub out on the new receiver.

Glad to see I started such a popular thread

Would I notice much difference between having a receiver with dedicated sub wire clips vs hopping on the main channel?

Also, does anyone have any recommendations for a good but not too pricey receiver? I'm usually a big tech guy, but this is my one weak spot.

I appreciate all the help!

I have always liked Onkyo. You can pickup a refurbished unit with warranty for a couple hundred bucks. I like this site for Onkyo Refurbs (also new things are available there too). I've bought quite a few things from here - though I'm not soliciting for this site, just sharing.
