Oh yeah???? Well how 'bout this, I move into your neighborhood, in fact right next door, I arrange my theater right next to yours, I hook up both of my dual 15" 600W RMS subs, set all four of my A9's to full range, and crank Tron Legacy to reference, and we'll see who's wife calls the cops first
Oh yes, Dave, it is ON! Of course, I think both of our wives will have us both committed, and that's okay, so long as we can have adjoining rooms, we knock out the wall, and we combine our set ups Let's see, between the two of us, that's a pair of 140w AVR's, nine amp channels and 6 A9's....................yeah, we could rock it fo sho

LOL, okay, that'll give us 6 subs, I might as well get a couple-O-more so we have an even 8, I'll get the XPR-5, then I think we should be covered, I'll bring the Y splitters so the eight subs go into the 4 Pre-outs and more Y splitters for the additional speakers so we'll run, what, 21 speakers? Does that sound okay with you?

I have a PSW108 subwoofer, it has stereo rca inputs but all subwoofers are single. Does anymake a single rca to stereo rca cable to run from my pioneer vsx824 so I dont have to run a stereo rca cable to a y mono splitter? Just looking to simplify and count down on connections.

Dave, just wanted to say thanks again. I ran across an ad for the Thermaltake Massive 14. It really kept my 807 nice and cool, and my Integra, it hasn't seen a warm day since I got it. The low profile fits in my rack nicely with room to spare. I'll get another one of these days, for now, those little duals working okay. Thanks brother!!!! Drop in anytime

Why do you need to do this? You only need to connect to one of the line level inputs if your AVR has a single sub output (even AVRs with two sub outputs are often just the same output split inside the chassis, not stereo sub outs). It might give you an input boost to your sub by connecting both, but as the sub is only 50 W RMS I'm thinking this isn't required.

just going by what the manual says, I also figure there is some reason they have stereo RCA inputs on it. I used to run it drectly from the tv with a mini aux to stereo rca cable but now I have a AVR

The manual says you can connect a mono input to either the L or R line level input. If you had stereo LFE outputs you would use both (I'm not sure how common this is), or maybe if you had full range pre-outs that you were feeding to your sub, and using the sub's low pass filter to set the crossover.

With a mono sub output, which should contain all LFE and material below the crossover frequency (if your speakers are set to small), you only need to connect to one of the line level inputs. You won't be missing anything.

Hello! I am currently using 4x RTi A1s + a CSi A4 for my home theater and loving them - but maybe the upgrade bug has gotten me again..

Would I see that much improvement going up to the LSi line (or LSiM)? I use my HT mainly for movies (85%), games (10%) and music (5%).

Thanks!

Edit: or even something like LSi for the fronts + center, and keep the RTi's for surround?

Towers aren't an option right now, gotta stick with my books!

For movies, I would stick with the RTis. If you are more into music more, then I would recommend the LSi's. The LSi's are harder to drive and should have an external amp, except for the LSi7's. I haven't heard the LSiM's.
