    What is the idea behind running two sub's? I seem to see this often when auditioning prospective systems.

    Also is this a good idea (in your opinion), and if so how do you set that up properly? With the wiring to the receiver. Is it self explanatory or is there a trick to it?

    Thanks in advance and I understand most of this is subjective. Just looking for personal opinions.

    Some like it, some do not.

    I myself like it. It yields approximately 6db more of usable headroom. Only drawbacks are calibrating and placement of the subs. Most will agree that placing your subs in the same corner will yield the best results. To hook them up, all you need is a "Y" splitter from your SUB/LFE output on the back of your receiver into both the subs.
