  1. Hi all, I need to get an amp for my subwoofer and I found a used QSC GX5 on craigslist. Is this a good choice? Does anyone have any experience with this brand? https://www.qsc.com/live-sound/products/power-amplifiers/gx-series/gx5/ Thanks in advance, Doug
  2. Hi Everyone, I recently purchased a ca-800tsw to improve my outdoor set up. Looking at the instructions, it says to hook the AVR up to the sub and then daisy chain it from one speaker to the next. Unfortunately, this pic is assuming that I have a set of ca-650s, which I do not. I have aw-650s which have a different set up on the back. How would I set these up? Would I still daisy chain it? Should I power the sub through a separate amp (which I have) and hook that up to the my AVR. If so, what steps would I take to do that? My amp is an old Audiosource Amp 100. If I had the option of doing both, which one would sound better. This setup is primarily for music and podcasts, but I also put on outdoor movies during the summer for my kids and neighbors. Thanks in advance, Doug

    Yes, strictly outdoors. The avr is an onkyo tx-nr100. For two channels it provides 135 wpc. The amp I have is an audiosource 100. Nothing else would be hooked up to it.

    Good morning, I am replacing a set of aw-650s because the tweeters blew due to too an underpowered avr. Anyhow, with a more powerful avr, I decided to add a subwoofer (ca-800-tsw). I have read that some people hook it up to a separate amp vs just the avr. Would this be better to do instead of the normal way? Advantages vs disadvantages? Thanks in advance.

    Powering aw-650

    Thank you again. I have a relatively private backyard and I work outside or just grill out on the patio a lot so I mainly listen to music or podcasts. About once a week or so I set up a large screen and projector for my kids to watch a movie out there. When I have done that I haven't yet connected it to the aw-650s, but I think I have figured out a way to try it so that should make it all the more enjoyable for them. Since I spend so much time out back, I decided to splurge and get a sub. I looked at a number of different brands and stayed with Klipsch and bought a ca-800-tsw. Believe it or not, it was the most reasonably priced of all of the different ones. I've read a couple of different comments on how to hook it up. Some say to do it to one line of the 650s, but others have said to use a separate amp for it. I happen to have a spare amp that I could use so my question is which way do you think it would work best?

    Powering aw-650

    Thank you, Ole Dollar. I appreciate all the info. I was able to find a used Onkyo Tx-NR1007 for $150. It pumps 135 watts per channel so it looks like it will meet all of my needs since I am only using it for those outdoor speakers. Let me ask you another question though. Do you think it is worth adding an outdoor subwoofer to this set up? Thanks again for all your help. It is greatly appreciated!
  7. Hi, About a year ago I purchased a set of aw-650s powered by an old Onkyo receiver Tx-sr606. Unfortunately it clipped and the tweeters blew last weekend. I talked to a rep from Klipsch and he recommended to get a different amp / receiver. (I am only using the receiver / amp for these two speakers and nothing else.) He told me to look for one with at least 100 watts per channel / 8 ohms, 20hrz - 20Khrz, and .08 or less distortion. I found a new Onkyo receiver that fits the bill, but I am wondering if I should get something that would be around 150 watts per channel. I have an old powered amp from audiosource, but I don't know if I could hook that up to my current receiver to boost the watts. I also found the following two powered amps that would provide enough power but they don't necessarily meet the other qualifications that the rep told me. If I was to get one of the powered amps below, would I need anything else or could I just run the speakers off of it. I'm controlling everything wirelessly through my iphone if that makes any difference. Or, should I just keep the receiver I have, which meets all of the specs I'm looking for except it is 90 watts peer channel?
