Hey Paul, I submitted an “ask Paul” about this, so maybe you will choose it for a video.
I own a Sprout and 3 subs - a Definitive Tech ProSub 800 and two Earthquake Sub80s. My current speakers are NEAR M10s and PSB Amazing Alphas, which I switch out pretty regularly.
Both the DT and the EQs have high level ins and outs.
I am currently driving the DT via the 1/8 out on the sprout.
Can I connect the system like this? High level out on Sprout to high level in on the sub (any), then high level out on the sub to the speakers. I’ve done it this way with Decware Zens and an old (but good) Denon PMA-75 Amp. But they are not Class D as is the Sprout.
FWIW, I am keenly interested in buying a Sprout100; seems to be a nice upgrade. Also, I have always gone really cheap on speakers. No more. My budget is limited so I am planning to upgrade to either KEF LS-50, KEF Q350, or one of the ELACs. I’m determined to keep it to 1k or less, unless I skip a few lunches and spring for the LS-50s.
Thanks Paul or anybody else who weighs in.
