If the latter is true, would this make the placement of the subwoofers more difficult given that the output for two subs is not identical. Can anyone clarify this for me? Thanks.
Yes. 2 subs.
Think of it like stereo speakers or stereo subs. The levels are independent.
Placement is still non-trivial.
