can you sub take XLR ? XLR by design has double the voltage of RCA.

I know our line out has industry standard gain (2V?) so did you get your sub from a system and might have designed for its preamp/sub output.

How is the rest of your setup?  Are you going to the sub and from the sub out to an amplifier?  Are you using the RCAs for the SUB and the Balanced to the AMP?

Did you connect both RCAs?  Your subwoofer can take either one RCA carrying a LFE signal (created by an AV receiver, for example) or a full range RCA be connecting both RCAs.

You need to use both on your case, as the DAC-9 is not generating an LFE.

If you could elaborate more on your setup, it would be a bit easier.

Hello, I have the same issue with my REL9. The rca out from Dac and low level input from Rel is to low.
I have to connect to STA 9 the sub, High Level input but I don't like this solution. Any iddea?

Agree with Rafa.  Make sure you are using the Line input, which is expecting a fixed input level, as opposed to the LFE input which has a lower input sensitivity as it expects you to have the ability a raise the level yourself on the source side.  Also if you are using single sub with only one line input from a stereo output source you will have to buy a 2 to 1 adapter to sum both outputs from the DAC-9 and if the sub has two inputs you will have to attach to both. The DAC-9 and DAC-10 have no problem driving subs.
