I have a JBL MBB2 Marine receiver.
Specs can be found at http://www.deanelectronics.com/index...&productId=139
This receiver has 4x45 watt amplifiers, powering each of the available speaker channels (FR, FL, RR, RL)
I believe the 4x45 watt channels have a speaker impedance of 4 ohm's.
This receiver is currently being used for my hot tub stereo system and was installed by the hot tub manufacturer.
Currently the FR and FL channels are being used for the top mounted speakers on the hot tub.
I am wanting to add a little base to my hot tub sound.
Wondering if the 2 rear speaker channels (2x45) would be enough to power the 8 inch marine passive tube subwoofer, Bazooka Model: "MBT8014".
I know I could add a powered sub-woofer connected to the pre-amp outputs on the receiver, JBL had supplied this option, but then I would have to draw power from the hot tub or an external source,
and was trying to get around having to do that by using a passive sub-woofer instead.
Other goal stream was to not spend too much money, work with existing system if I can, rather than upgrading to buy new amplifier, power supply, etc.
Not looking to add ground shattering base to my hot tub, just looking to add a little base to my hot tub experience.
I would be looking to mount the sub-woofer base tube in the hot tub enclosure and have the base emanate through the water.
If there are other options or other configurations that might work better for what I am doing, or if what I am trying to do is just not possible, any help would be appreciated.
Thanks very much for any help!
