    What is the best way to connect 2 subs if your amp has only 1 sub out?

    Is it best to split the signal? Or to connect one to the sub out and the other via the speaker cable to the front left and right?

    Split the signal with a Y connector. The other method will probably sound a bit of a mess.

    Thanks Ian

    I was doing that before but the expert at my local Sevenoaks told me to do it the other way.
    I think i trust your advice more than his.

    Cheers

    Might be a good idea to have a FAQ on this web page!

    Some subs have a direct input don't they... so you can wire them in series... think this is an option on the Mission FS2-AV's...

    So it goes...

    Amp --> sub --> sub

    ... not sure where the satellites fit in though...
