Have processor allowing for 7.1 system. Currently using seven speakers and one sub-woofer. How do I best put another sub in the room? Do I split the signal going out to the one sub, and if so how?

The way I'm going to do it is to run the Sub out to an amp then split the signal with a nice Y RCA cable. For now I am using the Y and it is working fine, but not enough power.

Do a search on this forum. This is where I found out my information on doing it. I also ordered the cable from bettercables.com and they built a really nice one.

Hope that helps.

Joseph

There are few ways to do it, depending on the sub you have. Joseph has a good idea if your sub doesn't have a line level out. Since my Velodyne HGS-18 does, they are connectable. One other piece of advise, if memory serves, most forum responders felt stacking the subs in a corner provided the best performance. By all means, check the archives.
