Sorry if this question sounds silly as I have never owned a sub before. Do I use RCA splitters to send separate signals to the sub and active speakers, or do I use RCA to connect to sub first then out to the active speakers? I am speaking for subs that have both RCA inputs and outputs.

You send the signal from the DAC/pre to the sub.


You want to get a sub that has a high-pass filter with RCA outs. Typically these are at 80Hz so you will want to set the low pass for the sub at 80Hz as well.


You then send from the sub's outs to the active speakers.
