Hey guys,


I just purchased two 15" Audiopulse Axis subwoofers and would like to clarify some issues about the setup..

http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?Partnumber=293-622


I also have a Yamaha P7000S and Samson S-Convert on order.


I was looking at the flat-pack subwoofer cabinets sold by the diysoundgroup to save myself some work.

Unfortunately, the 3.5 ft^3 cabinet that looks like it would fit the Audiopulse is out of stock but the 3 ft^3 cabinet might work with a small modification. I was planning on running the subs sealed as I believe they should have enough output down low as is.


Now, the P7000S can run the subs separately in stereo and I believe the S-Convert can also be used in stereo. I wanted to get something like the Reckhorn B-2 or eQ.2 for use as a high-pass filter and for some equalization. Unfortunately, the eQ.2 is backordered and it doesn't look like CSS sells the Reckhorn units any longer. I don't know if there is anywhere else to source a Reckhorn unit at this point. I'm currently trying to decide if I can run the subs without a high-pass but I don't if I'm comfortable with that even though it looks like I probably don't need it.


So, do I just need an RCA splitter in order to run dual subwoofers off of a single sub-out and does anyone know where I might be able to source a Reckhorn (B-1 or B-2)?

That looks like it might be a good option. Thanks for the advice. I'll probably try running them without the high pass first and buy something to EQ them with later.

Might want to look into the MiniDSP EQ device.

Yes, you can use a y-splitter for this. You most likely will not need to use a high pass filter on these if you are running them sealed.

The splitter is probably fine. Try it first - it's the cheapest option.

If the speakers are not an equal distance to the listener, you may have problems only using a Y splitter. If you get a miniDSP for EQ, I believe you can also use that to set time delay for each sub individually. I do not have a miniDSP, so hopefully someone else can verify this.
