You could share the sub by using an RCA 2 Input 1 output switch.Hi! Sorry wanted to ask how did you set up your sub for both HT and Stereo? Am looking at almost the same set up with a X3700 and Audiolab 6000A play, but with a REL HT1205, which similar to the SB2000 doesn’t have high level inputs. Am thinking very hard about how to use the sub for both, so any advice is appreciated!
I wrote to REL but they suggested running the sub thru the Audiolab, and set up the AVR with no Sub. But I don’t prefer that approach as I can’t get audyssey and can’t do the crossovers for my surrounds (including atmos speakers).
Connection would go:
(Single RCA) AVR "sub out" Input "A" (switch)
(L&R RCA) 6000A "pre-out" Input "B" (switch)
(L&R RCA) Switch "Output" Rel Input (back of sub)
Make sure you match the left & right inputs/outputs Jack's (ie Red to Red & White to White.
For Music set RCA switch to Input "A"
For Movies set it to Input "B"
The only issue I can see is that the subs physical crossover dial would need to be changed from its LFE (120Hz) position to whatever the crossover was for music eg 80Hz each time you switched between using the sub for music & movies.
Because I have the SVS SB2000 Pro Subs I can set a different crossover for music via the App that comes with the sub. It has 3 customisable presets. So I can set one for movies, & one for music which (has a different crossover) then simply select it depending on if I'm listening to the Audiolab (music) or AVR (movies).
The addition of a MiniDSP 2x4HD between the RCA switch & sub would achieve the same effect, but that's another £200+ expense.
If going down this route, I'd probably buy a SVS SB1000 Pro - which also has the app. You then wouldn't need the MiniDSP.
Hope this helps. Feel free to PM if you want more info.
