    Hi,

    I have currently just purchased a Elac home cinema speaker system along with a pioneer vsx d-912 receiver.

    On the receiver i have a single phono 'sub pre-out' connection. On the Elac Subwoofer i have 2 phono L & R inputs.

    How do i connect?

    Do i need a Y-cable or can i just connect a single phone from either left or right?


    Thanks

    According to the manufacturer's website both the left and right inputs have the same sensitivity so either will do.

    You could use an Ixos 1009-Y1F splitter cable.

    you do not need a splitter cable mate, connect 1 phono to the lh sub out and the other to you amps sub out, my elac system sounds the dogs boll....s and should sound even better when mark grant;s sub cable arrives

    is there any significant improvement using Y-link sub cable, compared to the single one?

    From what I have gathered the only reason you might need a splitter is if your sub doesnt wake up from standby very easily. It doesnt make any difference to the sound quality and costs more money.
