This is what I purchased from Monoprice:
6.35mm (1/4 Inch) Stereo Plug to RCA Jack Adaptor - Gold Plated
RCA Plug to 6.35mm (1/4 Inch) Mono Jack Adaptor - Gold Plated
2 RCA Jack to 2 RCA Jack Adaptor - Gold Plated
25ft Premium 2 RCA Plug/2 RCA Plug M/M 22AWG Cable - Black
The PB1000 is sitting behind my couch right now, facing to the West if you are sitting North. The length of cables is needed to come all the way around my couch and around to my desk where my PC, interface, and studio monitors are that is in front of my couch. The room layout is odd, at best, but small enough that the sub shouldn't have a problem filling it....2000 cubic feet roughly.
The 1/4" stereo to RCA adapter will be plugged in to my L/R outputs on my external interface with the 25' RCA cables going into those and going to the PB1000 inputs. Another set of 25' RCA from the subs high pass freq outputs to the RCA to female 1/4" adapters that will plug into my male 1/4" to XLR inputs going into my studio monitors. I know that's a lot of adapters and really long cables where I could have just got a Y-splitter from my external interface and split the signal to my sub and studio monitors but I really wanted to take advantage of that high-pass frequency output on the sub to help reduce bass and maximize mids and highs on the monitors. The tech at SVS said this shouldn't be a problem with the long cables running next to each other but I still have yet to test it out. UPS just delivered the cables to my buddies house a few minutes ago but I'll get them tomorrow to test everything out.
I plan on getting another set of Tannoy studio monitors and Y-splitting the output from the sub into two pair of monitors. Logically I don't see any problems doing this but I'm still learning. If anyone objects or foresees any potential issues with how I am doing things please tell
