I just hooked up a subwoofer to my stereo setup for the first time and got an odd result. I am currently running an Acurus DIA 100 with Focal Chorus 706v stand mount speakers. I like the sound, but I wanted to add a bit to the bottom end. I got an SVS SB 1000 and hooked it up. The Acurus doesn't have a pre-out. So, as suggested in the directions, I ran two speaker wires from each of the binding posts - one to the speaker and one to the subwoofer. The result has been a rather obvious reduction in the detail and transparency of the treble. The amp also doesn't seem to play quite as loud as it did without the sub. Any thoughts on what might be causing this? I've used bi-wired speakers in the past with my Acurus (and the same speaker cables) without issue.
Thanks for any help!
