    Question Y cable

    Hi ,
    I have an HK receiver and just borrowed a Sub from a buddy to see how it sounds with my system,, I dont have one so thought Id see what Im missing,, My H/K has One output for a sub and His JVC Sub has 2 inputs,, left and right,, Soooooo am I right in assuming I need a Y cord to get this working right??

    Yes you could use a Y-adapter. If the sub has an lfe then you can just use the one connection into that. To test it, you should be able to connect to either one.

    You're fine by just running the subwoofer output into one of the inputs on the subwoofer itself. Using a Y-splitter and plugging in both subwoofer inputs will just increase the level by about 6 db. Unless you're having trouble getting acceptable levels of bass even with the gain on the sub and the sub/LFE levels on the receiver maxed out, you won't need that extra 6 db.

    A (Y) adapter really helps bass IMO, makes the bass much deeper and sounds way better, but if its a test just plug it into the left input and you can get the idea of what it would be like. unless you buy one i dont really see the need of going and buying a Y
