    Hi,

    I recently bought a new system which came with an subwoofer...problem is I want my other one plugged in too...however my receiver only has one sub out...

    What i want to know is if I plug a y-splitter phono plug into the receiver sub out, and then plug in both subwoofers, would everything work alright?? Would the power be divided between the subs? What issues might occur?


    Thanks

    Doesn't your subwoofer have an output next to the input? You can just plug in the other subwoofer on the output of your first subwoofer...

    Using a splitter will be just fine although using a dual sub configuration can be a real pain to set up effectively. :)

    What you need is an Outlaw ICBM bass manager, it has many virtues include stereo sub outputs.
    They don't ship outside the USA, but I bought a s/h unit thru Ebay, I love it.

    Indeed i have used a splitter from the sub out on my Yammy Dsp-e800 and it works a treat, also using the same model of sub helps to cut down on the Pain in the A$$ setup, i set them to the same level and it works fine. :smashin:

    Multiple subs provide many, many advantages over a single unit but getting it right has quite a steep learning curve for the uninitiated. :)
