Replacing a weak passive SW
Good morning to all,
I have searched this forum but could not find an answer to my problem, therefore I would like to ask for a bit of help.
I own a Samsung HT-C555 5.1 home cinema. I've been very satisfied with the overall clarity and clearness of the sound, however it lacks any respectable level of bass.
I have selected the maximum volume for the subwoofer (+6db) in the system menu but still, it's like there's bearly anything attached.
The specs of the SW are as follows:
* Impendance: 3 ohm
* Frenquency range: 40Hz~160Hz
* Output sound pressure level: 88dB/W/M
* Rated input: 170W
* Maximum input: 340W
The subwoofer is passive. I would like to know if it would be possible to either replace it with an active one and if so what would I need to do to make it work?
If I cannot replace with an active SW,could buying a new passive SW from another brand solve my problem, or do you think the problem is inherent to the amplifier and I would have to replace the entire system?
Thanks in advance for all your help!
