I guess what I am getting at is: would a splitter be a cheap way to get any audio improvement?

Would the splitter be detrimental to tone? Do you mean the sub would be 6dbs louder than before (settings being relative of course)? Thanks for the info!

Using a Y splitter to go into both rca ins?

Would there be any gain or advantage to using a Y splitter so that both Left and Right RCA inputs can be used? Now I run a single RCA cable into the Left input. Thanks.

On my ULS 15 sub, would it matter if I use the left or the right input for this signal? Thanks.

Crossover advice?

I am using the HSU high pass filter now and it has made a great improvement in my system's sound.
Would stepping up to the "High End Crossover" make an audible difference ? Silly question? Thanks.
