I don't want to do any damage to my sound board and thought I should throw this question out first.

Will it be safe to come directly from my bottom cabinet speaker to the high level out on the sub?

Thanks for any help.

Wires from your main speaker would be connected to the High level INPUT on the sub.

You may find that the level might not be high enough, if so then connect to the low level input.

The type of subwoofer was built before receivers had dedicated subwoofer outputs. The idea is that the output of the source would go through the sub then on to the speakers. Typically the signal to the speaker would go through a low pass filter so the main speaker would not try to reproduce the low frequencies that the subwoofer produces.

Thanks Lee
Just went home for a lunch beak and took a look at the sub. There may be a problem with this sub. The sub powers on and I hooked my bottom cabinet Pinbot speaker to high level in on the sub and I get nothing. Not even static.

I will need to investigate further.
