Hey so I have a stereo amp with both a A+B channels, both of these have speakers connected so I have 2 Left and 2 right speakers. I just bought an active subwoofer with both high level inputs and outputs so what I was wondering is if I take the A channel (both left and right speakers) and put them into the high level inputs on my sub, then run another set of speaker wire from the high level outputs of the sub to left and right speakers will this be a safe way to connect them?
I'm wondering if this will add any load to my stereo amp or will the subwoofers amp be powering it therefore making my stereo amp not have any additional load as the sub is only taking the signal?
Also will this degrade the sound quality to my original speakers in any way?
and does the subs crossover still work? I read somewhere that this set up stops it working and makes the sub have poorer sound quality.
Because I put two speakers front and two behind and it gives more of an immersive sound that and I had another two speakers knocking around and thought why not haha
And that diagram is how I wanted to set it up yeah my amp doesn't have a sub output so my only option really is the high level connection, doing that wouldn't make the speakers have poorer sound quality would it? Or add any extra stress to the amp?
Yeah I know I thought the amp would have been wired in series as it says 8/16ohms so my guess was that one channel=8 two=16 but it turns out they're wired parallel thus reducing the impedance to 4ohms which doesn't make sense to me
