Hi, I've posted in the past and read on a regular basis the new post, very interesting.

I have a question concerning the interaction between a receiver/amp with powered speakers like my Triton Twos. Seeing as the subwoofers on the 2s have their own power source does any power to the subwoofers come from the receiver/amp? Do all the watts from the receiver/amp go to the mids and high frequencies in the 2s?

Answers, insight etc welcome.

Thanks wawaron.

Hi. Thanks for participating in the forum, and thank you for your purchase.

In answer to your question, yes, virtually all the real power from the amplifier section of the receiver (or power amp) is used to drive the mids and highs (basically from about 250Hz up). All the real "heavy lifting" is done by the high power digital subwoofer amp built into each Triton Two. It is one of the reasons you hear about people driving them successfully with very low wattage SET Tube amplifiers (in the 6-12 watt/channel range).

Hope this helps.
