    Default sub hook up on lsi 25

    working on the 25 posts curt thanks for the nice reply most forums would have thrown me to the dogs. Now on to my question can I hook up the subs on the lsi to the same place that I had the 404 hooked to just use a Y adapter or is there another way that I need to hook them up in order to get the most out of these wonderful speakers. Thanks

    Don't quote me on it, as I don't have any experience with those particular speakers.

    As far as I know though, that's the way to do it.

    Just get a 1 male - 2 female Y-adapter, and run the two coax cables to the individual speakers, and you should be in business.

    I tried three different ways to hook up Lsi25 subs:

    1) Connect sub pre-out to sub woofer.
    Connect speaker cables to left and right speakers using bridges.
    Set front speakers as large.
    2) Use 2 Y splitters to split sub pre-out to sub woofer and connect them to two Lsi25 subwoofers and the subwoofer.
    Connect speaker cables to left and right speakers removed the bridges.
    Set front speakers as small.
    3) Use a Y splitter to split front left pre-out and connect to left Lsi25 subwoofer.
    Use a Y splitter to split front right pre-out and connect to right Lsi25 subwoofer.
    Connect sub pre-out to sub woofer.
    Connect speaker cables to left and right speakers removed the bridges.
    Set front speakers as large.

    I found out the best sound I have is the first set up. You may experience Lsi25 subs will turn on and off if you do not have strong low frequency signal when using the second or the third set up.
