The output connections remain active at all times which means there are a few uses for these connections that can enable you to get even more from your system. Any component or device connected to the EDGE W's outputs will follow the volume commands of the preamplifier to ensure everything increases/decreases volume in sync.
Connecting a subwoofer
Although the EDGE W does not contain a dedicated subwoofer output, you can connect a subwoofer by connecting either of the unbalanced RCA connections to the corresponding inputs on the rear of your powered sub.
If you would like to add more speakers to your listening room, you can daisy-chain the amplifier for these from the EDGE W by using either of the outputs.
