So before i installed my Arc IDX and XEQ i used Tru SSLD6i to boost my voltage.
SSLD6i is adjustable (non-balanced) voltage driver where each channel can be adjusted to user's liking/system's requirement and ARC's IDX and XEQ while aren't technically line drivers (one is active x-over and other is eq) both have 8V output.
One “negative” thing I’ve noticed as soon as I replaced TRU with ARC combo is that my Polk Audio SR5250 woofer wasn’t as “bass-y” as it used to be. It sounds great, has decent midbass but before this swap it was more of a subwoofer. I swear, I’ve NEVER in my life heard any 5.25’’ woofer play 60-80Hz with such an authority at any volumes. After over a month now of every day tuning (since I went active as opposed to previous bi-amped setup) and playing with different things I can’t help but think of my SSLD6i as a “missing piece”.
Logic behind taking it out of the setup was that ARC stuff has 8v output anyways which would make my SSLD6i just a “useless piece in the chain”.
Is TRU SSLD6i really what I’m missing or is it something else I fail to see?
