    Hi... Im very new to this forum and need some help from anyone of you.
    I got the AVR 5000 reciver and Infinity Alpha 20 speaker in front. The Sub is a Audio-pro Avantek (10 Inch)(www.audiopro.se Its a Swedish company).
    But I dont get the sub to play like I want it to( plays a bit "burrrrie" ). So Ive been playing with the idea´ to add another one. The Infinity Alpha Sub that got an 8 inch element.
    The question I got is can I get it to just take front speakers bas (L-R) and have the other Sub to play the LFE bas only?
    Or will it be a good idea´ just to add the Alpha sub to the other sub?
    What Im looking for is the fast and firm bas.. The bigger sub is good for the movies but not as good for the music.
    I cant get a bigger speaker in front ( no room for it)
    Help me out mates!

    Welcome to the forum Daniel.
    I've checked the on-line manual for the AVR5000, and if I'm not mistaken you could add an active filter (between Main Out and Main In) and attach a second subwoofer to the filters LP Out (and of course the filters HP Out goes back to Main In), thus cutting your mains and redirecting the lower frequencies to the sub.
    Whether or not this setup is preferable to just adding a second sub to th LFE is up to you, personally I think this would work better as, when playing music in stereo mode, you'd still have one sub taking a load off the fronts.
    Whilst when using surround mode you'd have two subs - hopefully rocking your world. [​IMG]
    There will be other opinions no doubt... [​IMG]
    Good luck

    If your sub has a built-in high-pass filter, you can wire it in-line with your main speakers. Then you could set your H/K to 'Large' front speakers and 'LFE' only for the sub that's connected to the H/K sub output.
