System configuration: Single pre-amp out to power amp but what about the sub?


Novice Member
Hi this may have been asked before, but I've not managed to find an equivalent thread anywhere. This question should help me in my future growth in hifi.

I would like to add more wattage to my system to help drive my speakers. What I currently own:
  • Audiolab 6000a Play (50/75w into 8/4ohm)
  • Dynaudio Emit M30 (200w IEC)
  • Paradigm Monitor Sub 10 (line in only, no speaker level input)

So if I were to add a power amp to boost up my W to drive the Dyns (maybe something like the Emotiva BasX A-300), I'll have to use the single pre-out from the 6000a. But then how then do I connect the sub, now that the pre-out is used by the power amp? The Paradigms does not have a speaker level input.

How do I go about this?

You could try something like these, I used them on a nad preamp with two poweramps and it worked fine.

Yes I bought the same for my sub on Ugg10 recommendation, and they work perfectly. You will need two of those.
