Re: more power

.70 WATTS MINIMUM of continuous RMS power to each of the five channels into 8W from 20 Hz to 20 kHz . If this unit wont drive your sub then somethings wrong with it or the subs as I got these specs from the owners manual. Now your aware you will not really hear per say all the bass from your sub but will feel like yuou do. I have had peeps that wanna hear the thump down to your bones but thats the problem you wont unless your drive the subs way way up.Your true norm bass is from your front and rear left and right for the normal hearing range. I hope you understand what im trying to say here. And no there is no modification per say to increase the output and this amp IS NOT made to be bridged. Good luck

How to add a subwoofer?

Car systems and home systems are different in the fact that the car system expects to receive 12 volts DC for power, and they are usually 8 ohm speakers. I would not recommend doing this unless you are in the mood for some serious config. Power converter from 110 AC-12v DC and big enough to handle the amperage. If it's not powered, then your going to be running a 4 ohm speaker on an 8 ohm amp output. Again, not recommended.

Volume when on tuner is very different than when on DTV

Under the input menu, there is a volume trim function which allow you to increase or decrease the volume level of each input. It is designed so that the volume of different components can be matched to prevent a blast of sound when changing to a lounder output. You can increase the alevel of the dtv input, and decrease the level of the tuner. Tuner volumes are usually high.

Sony STR-DG810 w/ Bose Acoustimass 10

Try this:
Go into the menu settings by pressing "Receiver" --> "6-Video" --> "HDMI Audio" select "Amp," not "Amp+TV"
Yeah, it makes total sense to have a very important audio setting in the video menu.
