    Quick question. My Amp has one phono socket saying "sub out" but most subs seem to have 2 phono sockets, does this mean thay are not compatible? or do you just use one on the sub, left or right.
    Thanks for any help

    You can connect it 2 ways [1] single RCA to single RCA to normally the L input on the sub, [2] Single RCA to 2x RCA to the L&R inputs on the sub. Some people say the 1->2 can be better than the 1->1, price wise a 1->2 is not that much more expensive.

    The sub is mono. Subs have two inputs because not all equipment has specialized sub outputs, so sometimes you need to connect normal L and R outputs to the sub. It just combines them. Dedicated sub outputs are single.
