    Wink 2 subs

    Hi All
    I have 2 subs a Polk 350 connected
    and a larger M&K not connected.
    They are approx 8 ft.apart.
    What would be the best way to connect them?
    I am now using the Polk way.
    Would it be beneficial to connect them?
    Thank You
    R.Gordon

    Buy a Y splitter and run it off the LFE and connect a sub cable to each sub.

    That's not daisy chained, that's parallel. Daisy chained is series (out to in, same device out to the next in, etc...).

    I think Doc will back me on this one, but you should have them all driving from a single point. Stack those babies and find what you've been missing!

    why daisy chain instead of how Dr recommended. To me.. the y cable from the LFE would make the most sense to me. but other ways may work too.

    same thing but if the in out is cheap you might lose a little sigonal. it is cheaper you dont need a y spliter. eather way will work. it is your choice. when i was testing my new amp with my old subs and some other speakers i used the in/out method and worked fine.

    That was the only reason I recommended a y splitter instead of jumpering the subs - the amp can cause a signal degradation in some cases (not always).
