Several industry leading subwoofer manufacturers recommend using high-level, or speaker-level, connection to derive the best performance from their product and the speaker system being supported. There are many valid reasons for this, most simply expressed by the thought that the subwoofer is being sent precisely the same signal as the speakers, which allows for better integration of speaker and sub due to timing and timbre characteristics being identical.
However, certain amplifiers’ speaker output topologies, including some from Primare, prevent the use of this connection scheme, particularly with a single subwoofer, resulting in the standard high-level connection scheme not providing the correct signal to the subwoofers.
