Probably is, but I just don't get it! I am installing two Vandersteen W2q subwoofers on my two channel system. These are to be wired in parallel with the two Infinity towers. It is suggested that better performance will result if separate wires are run from the amplifier to the sub and from the ammplifier to the tower rather than just a wire to the tower and then on to the sub. I guess this makes sense because this way the wire length to the sub would be greater than length to the tower. BUT, why not a single wire to the vicinity of the speakers and then a 'Y' with equal length wire to the tower and to the sub? Electrically would not the juncture of this 'Y' be the same as the juncture of the terminal of the amplifier if two separate wires were run all the way to the tower and to the sub from the amplifier? What am I missing conceptually? Thanks.
