    I'm sure this has been asked before - so I'll be brief.
    My SW instructions say that if there is only ONE output signal from the Amp to feed it into the 'left' SW line-in.
    Is there any benefit to be gained from splitting that mono SW output into 2 plugs so that both left and right SW line-inputs get a signal?
    I have the spltter anyway - so no extra expense involved.

    Ta,
    Crisp.

    Crisp there is no real benefit to be had by useing a splitter and connecting the 2 inputs into 1 all that will happen is that you will get an increase in voltage and gain in the sub which can be a little undesirable when calibrating, 1 input will suffice and is recommended!

    Have a look at the thread 'question for Bruce Hall' in the Velodyne forum.

    I've just received a sub cable splitter - I'll be testing it over the weekend - I'll let everyone know of the results...

    from what I've heard (with velodyne Subs) - having a splitter does make a difference, but one expereinced user claimed that he didn't need it when he bought the new CHT-10R sub (same as mine)....but I'm very curious tho...

    this is the one I bought -

    Splitters increase the gain (useful if the subwoofer keeps on switching itself off in auto-mode if the signal from the AV amp is too low) and may prevent picking up noise from the unused input. Generally it is not necessary though.

    As Reiner says, the main use is if the auto-on circuit isn't very sensitive so increasing the input level should persuade the sub to stay on when it's wanted.
