I've left my old stuff, to some extent, in the mix, primarily two Klipsch 12" powered subs and two bookshelf Klipsch synergys for surround sides (which I'll replace with deftech in a few months).
Question is, my pioneer has two sub pre-outs. Should i run each individually to the Klipsch 12" subs or should I run y splitters on both pre-outs, one set going to the Klipsch 12's the other set going to lfe on the deftech 8060's???
Any/all comments/suggestions greatly appreciated!
Option 1: (the way you were considering)
One Sub output, split to the low level input of your 8060's, speakers set to Small w/ 80hz crossover.
Other Sub output, split to your Klipsch.
Each Sub out to your Klipsch only, speaker wire only to your 8060's, speakers set to Small w/ 80hz crossover. (Yes the powered subs in the speakers will still be working and have an effect on the sound)
Each Sub out to your Klipsch only, speaker wire only to your 8060's, speakers set to Large.
Much of this depends on your room and personal taste, just play with these different configurations and pick which "you" like best.
