    hi guys,
    Just a little question i'd like to ask. I've got an avr 3801 by denon and an old yamaha dspa a592. Can i some way use two subwoofers-perhaps by bridging the amps if possible?
    all replies welcome, dave g :(

    Forget bridging or anything.....get rid of the yamaha and go and buy a signal splitting device.....then bobs your uncle, your one sub out becomes 2!

    Active or passive subs?

    If active just use a Y-adapter cable, if both are passive you could do this:

    Connect the subwoofer out from your main AV amp via a Y-adapter cable to any line in of the second AV amp (e.g. CD).
    Then connect both passive subs to the speaker out of the 2nd amp.
    Balance the volume using a SPL meter and 'fix' the volume knob of the 2nd amp, the first amp will now control the system volume alone.
