    I have an HK AVR 520 Receiver with Boston "powered towers" and an HSU VTF-3. What would you guys recommend as the best way to hook these up so I am using the sub on ALL 3 of those components. What I'm using now is 2 "Y" splitters coming from the Subwoofer out on the Harman Kardon. Dr. HSU said I might be able to find a "3-Way splitter". Is using Y-splitter to Y splitter going to degrade the signal going to the tower subs and the separate VTF-3? Just curious to know what you guys would recommend.

    Thanks,

    Craig

    The 3 splits won't hurt. I would use the last 2 splits for the towers and the first one for the sub...just to keep the signal as close as *even* to the towers as possible.

    Be sure to calibrate,experiment with woof location...and I would also try running the mains as SMALL and letting the sub handle all the bass too...just to see what you think,
