In Topic: Couple of ? Regarding RCA connection to XLS amps

NICE! Thanks dakos.. Yes, I'm going with the XLS series. A lot of good feedback with these amps for mains and surrounds. I'll report back when everything is set in place

Thanks Dakos.. You've been helpful in this thread. Learned a lot. Ok so, I'm thinking yes. I'm just going to use my old receiver's preouts for now with a converter box to the amps. That should save me some money.  Also, I've thinking if I still go with the 3 Xls 2000 for my LCR. Now, I'm thinking of getting 2 more Xls 1500 to run my surrounds. Yes, I didn't mentioned that with my LCR's I ordered. I also wanted to upgrade 4 of my monitors. Especially since I listen to a lot of SACD, audio DVD, and audio BD. I got 4 of these monitors coming with my LCR..
So I talked to my long time high school friend which actually the one pointed me the direction to Crown amps. And also been a DJ (now a promoter) for over 25 years now. I asked him about converter box. And told him what I was going to do. So recommended this converter box..
He said it's very reliable and a solid product. And I really don't mind the cost especially it'll be a cleaner approach.
You question to mic and REW? Yes. I've been using this mic with REW..
And this is the EQ I use for my subs..

Thanks dakos..

Ok thanks. I understand now. So if I run my current receiver pre outs to a active converter. Then out via XLR to the pro amps. Is there downside in doing this? Does the converter box increase the signal to provide enough voltage  to the amp? Now I'm looking at different options. I think if this route works, then I might ride with it for awhile. Don't know yet though.

Ok.. These are pictures from a few months ago. It doesn't look like this anymore. For I have spread my subs around the room to get a more even response. Sorry pictures look kind of grainy. I took it with my phone. I will take more pictures with my dslr when I get the new speakers and amps.. :)

Yea, I've seen that on my manual before. I've done a lot of reading and asking questions about the preamp output of the receiver. I was told it should work. Don't know what this means. But read post #3476 and let me know what you think. http://www.avsforum....acc-thread/3450
I mean if not I might just go with a active converter box since the amps will be in another room as stated in my first post. And also what you recommended. But, since my receiver is old but still going strong, I was looking into one of the two preamps I listed. They have balanced outs. The subs that I have from JTRs each have a built in plate amp. The manufacturer of the amp is Speaker Power. I'll try to get the picture uploaded today. Thanks..
