    I recently went down to my local audio dealer and put in an order for a long Y subwoofer cable to run in my attic so that I could have my sub in the back corner of my room. However, they gave me a 1 to 1 cable, not a Y cable. So my question is, would I notice a difference if I just had the 1-1 cable going from my receiver only to the R-input on the back of the sub compared to having it into both the R and L inputs.

    The sub is a PB2-ISD and the receiver is an NAD T753.

    if you're using a mono or lfe subwoofer out on the receiver, then a Y isn't necessary.

    if you're talking about connecting the sub to the receiver's front pre-outs, then you will want to either connect both R&L channels to the sub or merge the R&L channels with a Y.

    You're good without the Y.
