    Okay this is just a theoretical question as I only have one Subwoofer at the moment but I am wondering how would I go about wiring/cabling two subwoofers as I only have one subwoofer output on my amp.

    Do you simply need to get a Y splitter? Does this then halve the input to each subwoofer? And if this is the case what is a decent Y splitter to get?
    Thanks

    any Y splitter should do.......

    altho as with any interconnect, you get what ya pay for, but not many expensive ones about so you shouldnt have to worry the credit card....lol

    Yeah that does look nice, but surely you want to have one male and two females - not the other way round. This is so you can plug the male into the receiver and the females can be used for the two sub cables going to the two subs at each side of the room.
