I would imagine an amp "sees" all speakers attached to its input. Isn't this why speaker's impedance should match the amp's output impedance?
Now, if that were an active sub-woofer, attached to the output of the pre-amp or gain section of the amp... maybe not. At least not the secondary windings of the OPT.
Sub connected by speaker level wiring doesn't consume much / any real power. That tells me very high input impedance. At least this is true with powered subs.
SS amps are theoretically best with the Lowest output impedance. That measure drives damping factor on which most modern speakers thrive.
I'm speaking to active subs.
When speaker level was mentioned, I was thinking (dangerous at best of times) that this was as opposed to line level inputs.
Too much is never enough
At least this is true with powered subs.
Which is not the case here. The amp is driving the passive sub.
