    Type CleanBox in the zearch bar.

    It is not the same as the LFE/Sub output of an AVR. For one thing an AVR can adjust the outputs to all the speakers and the LEF/Sub output independently. Most AVRs also boost the LFE/Sub output by 10dB.That's why I asked if you have an AVR. I guess not.

    Chances are that line level booster will help, but there may be other options.
    The sound bar is a Yamaha YAS-109...in case my link gets deleted again, the line driver I'm considering is the LGB-1 made by a company called Home Theater Direct. I tried to find a line driver from PE, but they don't sell them anymore...

    Which is it? The first piece of gear you need for a home theater install, other than a TV, is an AVR. If you don't have one that's the source of the problem.

    The source should be the LFE/Sub output of your AVR.

    I have just a sound bar and the sub. I didn't want one of the sound bars that come with a sub because those subs are small and not powerful enough for a large living room, which is what I have. So I bought a sound bar that has a preamp sub out so I could connect my own sub. I see the link I posted in my last post disappeared for some reason, so I'll post it again.

    It's one SCV sub, and yes.

    just measure across the lines w/a DMM. Play a 40Hz tone if you like (or whatever's appropriate).
