Hi, I have a Ross Mega Amp 800 2ch (I assume it puts out about 400 watts per channel?) and two 8 ohm Sonic loudspeakers with titanium horn tweeter and 15 inch woofers.
The AV receiver is a Marantz SR6008U .. about 115 watts per channel..
Problem is I want to just use the woofers as subs, so I took the 2 rca subwoofer pre-amp outputs (signal only I assume) from the Marantz and went to the 1/4" inputs on the Ross amp.
No matter what there is no sound from the woofers! I made sure in the Marantz settings its' set to LFE+MAIN - which in the manual it says you should use that so there is sound all the time, not just when there is LFE.
The 2 knobs on the front of the Ross amp that say "Peak", there is 2 lights above them and they don't light up.
I know the speakers work, because if go from just a regular left or right channel from the Marantz to the speaker the whole speaker has sound. There is a knob on the back of the speaker that controls the tweeter and I want that turned all the way down so somehow I can just be having subwoofer signal from Marantz and using the 15" subs...
There seems to be no sound when going from the subwoofer pre-amp outputs to the amp and amp hooked up to the speakers,
Is the amp shot ? The amp is older and I bought it used.. the Marantz is basically brand new.
Also is that amp too much for these speakers ? (I think the speakers are rated at 185 watts rms max)
Why can I not get any sound?
Thanks in advance for any help
