    im running the new arcam diva pre power combo with the usual speaker set up etc.

    Does anyone know if i can connect 2 subs to the pre amp?

    At the moment im running one on the fronts from the sub rca output on the pre amp but there is also an XLR sub output which at the moment is not being used.

    Can i connect to both at the same time or do i need a splitter of some sort for the rca only output?

    Any help much appreciated!!!

    Regards

    You could either use a Y-cable, or use the rca Front L+R pre-outs to hookup to each sub, and in the avp700 speaker settings, set the Fronts to large and the sub to none. It will have the same effect for digital sources. The added benefit is that you will get very good bass in stereo direct mode (analog).

    Hi Rum

    Many thanks for your reply but just one question--

    If i dont connect anything to the sub pre-out i would loose LFE signal information on dvd playback etc.

    Am i correct or am i thinking along the wrong lines?

    Regards

    If you set main speakers to "Large" and sub to "none" the LFE is redirected to them.
