Probably a stupid question.....

I have this receiver that I've had for a few years. Anyway, I have a home subwoofer that is not powered. Can this receiver push the sub? Or does it need to have it's own special amp?

Here's the receiver and the manual. It's a Pioneer VSX-411

Thanks and sorry if it's a stupid question.

Can't open the manual for some reason. But it doesn't look like it will work for your application. I'd find a powered sub......like the HSU model thats in the classified section

It's not that big at all.

22" high, 15" wide and 23" deep.

About the size of a small cardboard box. It doesn't take up that much room.

Well, yours is not intended for a cabinet right? It's sort of decorative to leave outside or concealed behind something. If I were in the market for a sub like that I'd definetly be handing out lowball offers for it.

Yes.

most non-powered subs have a build in crossover that allows it to take all the power from you front and rear speakers and give it to the sub as well as the regular speakers. its basically just decreasing the resistance on the amp and cutting out the highs on the sub part. i have an old optima sub that i use on my computer with an old 30 watt Aiwa stereo and it sounds bad ass.

get a picture of the back of your sub and/or get the model # so i can check it out.

Thanks and sorry if it's a stupid question.

It can be hooked up, but it wont sound like a sub. You can just hook it through the B speaker switch and turn both the A and B speakers on. However, the sub is probably 3 ohms or less, and I wouldn't even suggest hooking it up. I would just buy a powered one.
