If your receiver has low voltage (most Yamahas do) or if you are using a miniDSP 2x4 (not the balanced) then using both LINE IN or LFE IN is OK. It's also OK to use both LINE IN if you have a stereo pre amp. But in most cases using both LFE inputs can cause excessive input gain on the pre amp section of the amp then it will cause distortion due to clipping. This is more noticeable during movies with high bass content.

Is there anyone with F12s that uses Line In for music and LFE for movies? How are you accomplishing this?
I have tried with a switcher box, one for each sub, but for some reason one of the subs will not perform correctly as line level is reduced. If only one switch box is connected then it works fine. Inverting the switches does not solve the issue. Connecting the preamp directly to the subs results in perfect level matching. Any idea what is causing the problem?

Another question I have for those with F12, what are your settings on the sub for films (extension, rumble filter, etc.) ?

wow i had no clue that was something to be aware of , is using both LINE IN OK? or will it be susceptible to clipping and distortion like when using both LFE connections?

Your sub has 2 LFE and 2 Line In connections?

I think youre making it more complicated than it needs to be for little/no advantage.

I'm assuming he has the same thing as me where there is, Line in Left and Right, and LFE in Left and Right.
