Question about Kicker 02S10L74 Car Subwoofer
I've got klipsch bookshelf, center and surround speakers along with an RW 8 subwoofer (powered). At high volumes, the other speakers sometimes kick off and only the subwoofer works for a brief period of time. It's getting quite annoying and I don't believe it's my connections because I've reconnected all the speakers. I'm wondering if it's a problem with my receiver, such as overheating? I have a technics sa-dx 950 that's served me well and is 100 watts/ channel. Any help would be greatly appreciated. -J

the front speakers. If you set the front speakers to “SMALL”, the
filter is set to 100 Hz. Raise the cut-off if the bass from the front
speakers is unsatisfactory so that this bass is output through the

DR COMP - Dynamic range compression
Change this setting to view software at low volume (such as late at
night) and maintain audio clarity. This setting works with Dolby
Digital software. It reduces the peak level in loud scenes without
affecting the sound field.

software for household viewing.
MAX: The maximum allowable compression (recommended for
D-INPUT - Digital input

three digital input terminals, COAX, OPT1, and OPT2 (\ page 7),

It could be your receiver but you can try seeing if the Woofer has a input knob at the back, maybe this down, or maybe.if possible turn down the amount going to the woofer with your receiver.
