    With this other post going on right now about the "y adaptors" I came up with another similiar Q. I have the Vsx-49tx and my sub is a JBL PB-10 (hopefully to be a Velodyne HGS-10 in a few months) and the receiver has dual sub outputs. Would I experience any difference in sound if I plugged the the 2 outputs from my 49tx into the 2 inputs of my sub? Is this some kind of stereo thing like one output is for the right and the is other for the left channel?

    How are the jacks labeled? If it only says “Sub Out” or “LFE Out,” you can assume that it is not a stereo send. A stereo send should be clearly labled “L” and “R.”

    It’s mono times two, so a single cable is fine. Running two cables would be essentially the same as using a “y” on one cable.
