I have a Carver CM 1090, which sounds terriffic. I would like to incorporate it into my home theater system so that I can utilize it power my two main front speakers. Can I use only the amplifier section of the 1090 using the front main outputs from the pre/pro into the 1090? I am thinking that i can accomplish this by removing the jumper on the 1090 between the pre amp outs and the main ins. The connecting the pre/pro to the 1090 main in. Would that work and by-pass the pre amp section of the 1090?Any problems with doing this???Thank YouDan
Dan you are 100% correct in that you can remove the jumpers and then directly input the Power Ampl inputs on your Carver. Question though, does your Home Theater receiver have preamp outputs for the Main Speaker Outputs?
yes, I am using a 7 channel outlaw pre-amp processor, not a receiver
Excellent, that's what I was hoping to hear. In that case you are good to go, simply run a set of RCA cables from the Main Front L-R Outputs on the Outlaw, remove the jumper on the Carver, and connect directly to the "Post/Power Amp" inputs on the Carver to access it's power amplifier section directly. In this scenario, the Outlaw will have all of the control over the Carver (none of the Preamp controls will have any effect on the Carver itself).
If you need further assistance let me know.
