Ok, so I will soon have an Outlaw 950 to go with my Parasound HCA-855a. They will drive my Klipsch Quintets (please don't laugh...in our room these little shits run +-3.5db from 140 to 18k, and are down 5db at 110hz. Center runs a little higher lower limit). My wife and I both like the sound and my wife LOVES that they are extremely unobtrusive. My old EPI te-320s and Klipsch Forte II speakers were way to big for her. The main problem is my sub. I own an Advent AV-450S powered sub. It plays clean enough, and has a rolloff of about 45hz (in our room). I have thought of using a SVS powered sub to augment this sub, setting the SVS crossover at 50hz (or as low as I can). Is this feasable or do I need a special crossover to accomplish it? The Advent is clean, but not deep and if I set the SVS crossover near the lower limit of the Advent, I am hoping to integrate it without too much of a degradation in sound. Also, can I do it using the one feed from the 950, sending it first into one sub, then out from that first sub to the second one? Thanks, Bill

If you buy a sub of the caliber and performance of SVS, I would suggest you sell the Advent and just "upgrade" or put the money toward the SVS.

Trying to spread the LF over the two might introduce more problems than it is worth.

Just my opinion.

Hi Bill,

Of course it can, I was just saying that two subs are usually more difficult to place without problems (especially since you said your wife didn't like large speakers - the SVS, I assume will be placed unobtrusively)

And you are also looking to "divide" the Low Frequencies between the two subs, introducing another "project" that might make it more difficult.

I am al for two subs,(I have two in my system), but I run both of them from 60 on down and I have one in the front and one in the back (out of phase for a "push-pull")

John
