when i initially looked @ subs a decade ago i had to run my speakers wires thru the unit which removed the stereo channels of bass

 

since stereo sounds better than mono & i had 12" woofers & skipped the subwoofer purchase

 

now my new 7.1 receiver has an rca out for subs

 

i'd like to make use of the LFE channel on movies, but still don't want to convert stereo to mono

 

will the .1 channel play only the LFE audio & leave the stereo bass for my front speakers ?

True 'stereo bass' hasn't existed since the experimental days of stereo back in the '60s. Since then bass has been panned equally to both the left and right, so nothing is lost if you sum it to a single sub.
