2.3 update

I was messing around with my sub and wondered if it was worth it to split my incoming sub cable and feed it to the right and left inputs. WOW is all I have to say. It's like I have a new sub. My 2.3 usually will not wake up until the volume is in the low 50s. Well, I hd it in the low 70s and it fired right up. I now have to re-tune my system because the bass is too much.. I was thinking about upgrading but after this performance, I feel like I already have a new and more powerful sub. The splitter only cost me three bucks and I am satisfied.

Hi aht,

How high is the volume knob on the subwoofer amp, and what is the subwoofer channel level set at on the receiver?

Using a y-splitter is just boosting the gain on the unit...

Sincerely,

Pete,
Thanks again for the info. I am loving my sub more than ever. the sound has a heavy hit, is not boomy and just plain sounds good. I am running with a port plug in and am going to try it in max extension just to see. Again, thank and yes..I am still enjoying my sub.

I was always under the impression that the white input was the main one and that the red one was to be used for passing the signal to another sub when running two of them and it then allows you to split the signal again off from the second sub and so fourth. Is this the case? I remember when I owned my first crappy Sony sub the guy at radioshack said I needed one of these splitters in order to use the sub, one day I just took it out and only used the white input and it sounded the same so I never used it since.

Actually it is fine to use either the left or right low level inputs on the VTF/ULS subwoofers, no need to use a y-splitter when fed from a single subwoofer pre-out...

Hi, I have an onkyo 607 receiver, it has 2 subwoofer output. I am currently connected on the left and my sub is also input on the left. The HSU has a right inputs as well, what will happen if I were to connect 2 of them? I mean left output from the receiver to left input of the sub, and Right output from the receiver to Right input of the sub? 2 connections will this damage the subwoofer and receiver?

Thanks,
Chris
