ok. i have 1 10" JBL sub, and it sounds good, but not enough. so i went ahead and got another 12" JBL sub...and it's a power house!!! here's the problem. my harmon/kardon receiver only has one sub out. so i got a splitter, and hooked them both up. here's the question. the 12" jbl sub does not seem to be getting a clean enough signal. it's kinda farting at times etc. but if i unhook the 10", it works much better. what can i do? shoudl i hook one of the subs up to the dvd sub out instead??? would this work? please help? thanks!!!

You need a line amp to up the signal. Check out Markertak, or one of the site sponsors here like RAM electronics. What you are looking for is the RCA version of a powered splitter. This is an active device that will keep the level up when it is split.

Just for curiosity, how long are your sub cables? Usually splitting is not a problem. Driving long cables can be. Doing both most certainly will cause issues.

the sub cables are only about 6-10 feet. not very long. i didn't think i'd have any problems, but kinda looks like i do. how about putting one of the subs directly off the sub out on the dvd player? is this a good idea?
