I really appreciate that link to the L PAD. That is exactly what I was looking for, so I bought it!

However, I did not realize until I received it in the mail that it supports an 8 OHM signal, and apparently the signal to my subwoofer is 3 OHM!

I assume if I use it anyway, one or more of the following 3 things will happen:

1) it will damage my receiver.
2) it will damage my subwoofer.
3) it may not damage anything but the output from the subwoofer will be distorted.

Does anyone have any great ideas as to what I should do at this point? I wish I were an electronic expert.

Thanks for any response!
