RE: Passive preamp RCA output to SUB amp? Question on current configuration

I think you just answered you own question. You NEED the gain of the active preamp. Or at least the sub does. You could run a line to the active preamp FOR the sub. But now you're really making things complicated. And in audios setups - that never ends well.

You are loosing too much signal in the balanced input circuitry. The terms passive and balance are some what a contradiction in terminology and ideas.
