SP3 - Two sub channels possible?
« on: 4 Mar 2019, 04:37 pm »
Hey Brystoners,

Is that a word, "Brystoners?"

Setting up a HT with the SP3 and looking to run two subs in a 5.2 configuration. Unfortunately, the subs do not have out ports, so they can't be daisy-chained. Is there a way to assign one of the unused balanced-out ports on the SP3 to act as a second sub port?

Don't you hate when you embarrass yourself and find the answer after you post? It appears as though I can assign AUX OUTPUTS to SubWoofer...  :duh:

I have been using an aux output for a second sub for years. It makes a difference.  :D

I had been using Aux-L and Aux-R previously - see my setup and impressions here

I have since moved house and some aspects of my system are changed, but more importantly am now using the single .1 output of the SP3 to drive both subwoofers using a Y-adaptor. I cannot comment if it is better, but I am happy with the result and using the .1 gives much better control of the subs. The Aux outputs have limited control options, plus there is a delay in timing compared to the mains which makes setting phase tricky.
