Yes I'm sure if I search and search and search I would be able to find the answer to flame away if you will.... However here is my question.

I had an Onkyo receiver where the Sub Woofer had a positive and negative post for a direct wire connection. Long story short, my receiver went out and I was given a credit to purchase a new receiver. All of the receivers I see now only have a Subwoofer PRE OUT connection. Is there an adapter I can buy to accommodate the subwoofer to the new receiver?

This is one of the receivers I am looking at rdNo=6&blockNo=6&blockType=G6

most subs for HT use these days are self-powered. If yours is not, you will need an external amplifier for the sub in question, as every AV receiver of which I am aware only offeres sub pre-outs, unless its part of a home theater in a box solution and the sub is unpowered and proprietary to the system. (low end stuff)

I believe you answered my question. It was originally an Onkyo Package that was around 400 or something like that. I went ahead and bought a Pioneer Sub to replace the Onkyo one and then bought a Yamaha RX V375. I understand that it is by no means top of the line, but it should do the trick for my living room.
