Default Denon D-M30s + Subwoofer

I have a Denon D-M30s stereo, and want to add a subwoofer. My question is, if I connect the subwoofer, will it relieve the other speakers of those low frequencies? Or will everything be the same, except I'll have another speaker playing the lowest frequencies? (BTW, the D-M30s does have a deticated subwoofer output, and is the RCA cable type.)

Thanks,
Zeb

If you receiver has a subwoofer output then it is allmost certain that when you enable it the sound going to the other speakers will be passed through a highpass.

Check the manual, pherhaps you can even set the crossover frequency.

not necesarily, alot of the new receivers have different settings to configure this. For example mine has LFE to sub and mains, LFE to sub only, and of course no sub, with full range to the mids. With the popularity of sat/sub increasing, receivers need more options to keep up with speaker trends.

Zeb,

I have the same unit in my kitchen. Using a subwoofer does not high-pass the L/R speakers. I verified this by turning the gain on the sub all the way down; they were still playing low bass.
