    Hi guys, I've just purchased a Ms premiere plus package from Richer sounds and i'm just curious on how to connect the sub.

    I have a Pioneer vsx912 amp with what seems to be only phono socket for thr LFE preout.

    On the sub there are two line inputs (L & R).

    What one do I use? Will anyone be O.K? :confused:

    Any idea's? :confused:

    Thanks in advance Fire Boy :rolleyes:

    Only me again!

    People might say RTFM but my sub hasn't got one in the box! :mad:

    Also should it come with a set up disc?

    The L input is the one to use if you only have one lead.

    Have you looked at the MS website for a download (manual)?

    If not try PM "Tons of Fun" or phone RS.

    Just use either of the connections, it shouldn't make any difference. I tend to use the left input for preference but you can try them both and see which you prefer. :)

    re the missing setup disk - drop an email to MS and they'll send you one via post, recieved mine 2 days aftermailing.

    hope this helps.

    Once again this forum has shown me the path to AV heaven and how to annoy the neighbors!

    Mind you I must be lucky, both of my neighbors are about 84 years old and tone deaf..............Great if you live in mid-terrace :clap: :clap:

    I'd prefer a stone-deaf neighbour to a tone-deaf one anytime. ;)

    Though they might disagree! :devil:
