I do think that's part of my learning disability here. Meaning, I listen to the moderately underpowered Onkyo, and it's just a bit limited in power, and frankly the features are kinda weak. And it cost like $200. But it sounds almost like I want just with the sub plugged in and the sub x-over set to 60.\n\nSo I start thinking, why not get a decent piece, and a nice 2 channel amp. I see that ND8006 on the internet and think this is way cool. And because my $200 amp and the sub sound half decent I think in my head this must be better.\n\nBut suddenly it turns out that the first thing that happened (and not complaining, I need to, WANT to know this stuff) is that everyone starts educating me on the dangers and issues of not having LP x-over control. Then I even had some HP x-over input. And this is all good, and I'm getting it, but I'm bummed there's no easy way to use the thing I thought I liked.\n\nCould we maybe learn me something new a different way as well? I'm not discounting all the valuable info. But I just had a thought I'd like to have answered if possible.\n\nAssuming companies make components meant to work together, can you tell me how that ND8006 is supposed to be set up and used. Now I'm curious about a whole new angle of this process. Forget about the "Ohh that looks cool, I want one...". Instead I wonder. Well, just how the hell does this this supposed to work.\n\nThere's more than one way to learn something. I mean if I walked into Best Buy and had that thought I might walk out having bought it. Thinking it was a good fit. That's the advantage of having people willing to donate time and knowledge. One can come here and save a lot of time, money and headache.\n\nI'm the simplest basic terms possible, explaining to a child, I'm really curious about how that thing is supposed to be used.\n\nBTW, I'm researching AVRs and thinking about a way to connect a display. So I'm not trying to stomp this dead thread, but if it seems that way, don't answer. I'll live. Somehow. . I just really, really hate not understanding something. And I don't mean the math or perfection of bass management. Just about how these pieces are meant to go cause it's clearly not what I thought.\n\nLet me just say that it's not really gonna be dangerous so to speak, but you probably wouldn't get the most out of system, which in the end this is what the hobby ends up being about.
