    I have a REf 30 with 1 sub out which I Y to both subs. The Servo 15 sub is connected with a 35ft. run of RG6 with RCA adaptor. The SVS is run off 1 channel of a Parasound 2205a amp.The Parasound amp is close to the Ref 30 and so will the BFD be.Will I lose alot if I use an TRS 1/4" adaptor instead of a custom RCA to TRS cable with the 35 ft. run? I live in a small town so the only place to buy these are at Radio Shack but they only have 1/4" mono plugs not stereo plug adaptors? All you BFD gurus please advise.
    Thanks,
    Steve Morgan

    The only thing to do is give it a try. The Behringer should be capable of driving fairly long runs without problems. If it isn't the output devices in will oscillate and you'll hear a screech from the amp.
    I use the RS 1/4">RCA adapters with my Behringer, and have no problems at all

    Steve,
    The 1/4" mono phone plug is the correct item ( a stereo phone plug won't work).
    Long cable run shouldn't be any problem for you.
    Did you previously use a Y out of the Ref30 single sub out?
    If so, then just move the Y to the 1/4" phone plug out of the BFD.
