Can I do this?


maybe take the sub out coax and feed it to one the the inputs and the use that as an audio source for zone 2



I have a onkyo tx-sr605 if it makes a differeance


I want to get a couple aura pro bass shakers


thanks

I've thought about this too.


"maybe take the sub out coax and feed it to one the the inputs and the use that as an audio source for zone 2"


What does that accomplish that just Y'ing from the sub out doesn't?


Not sure it matters, but a potential drawback is that if EQ is used the transducers could be getting a drive signal w/problematic peaks and dips.


I was thinking that other zones should have a downmixed (from multichannel) signal of the main zone with the bass in it which would need to be LP'd for the transducers.


You could even use the zone 2 volume control for them.

I am a bit unsure, Noah. So you are saying to use zone 2, with the normally selected source, and feed that to a transducer? But you would not then get low pass?


Or you are saying what the OP is, to Y the sub output, then feed it to an unused input, select that unused input for the zone 2 source, and feed zone 2 to the transducer?

I'm saying play zone 1 source in zone 2, which presumably (right?) contains all the bass.


Y the stereo channels together for mono input to the transducer amp.


Needs LP'ing, but that's taken care of if you have a BK amp for instance.


Or pick up a cheap used BFD to LP the heck out of it.
