    Hey everyone, im really close to ordering myself a Dayton 12" sub from parts express. I was lookin at the picture which shows the back of the sub, and it has 2 lines in, one for L and one for R. My reciever (panny saxr 50) only has one sub output. What do i do about that?

    It is there in case you have a stereo input, but they are summed internally, so it likely won't matter if you use just one of them, though it may matter which one you use (you'd have to check the manual). Some subs need a certain amount of voltage to keep them from turning off during movies with not so much bass. If that's the case, you may use a Y splitter to both inputs on the sub and this will usually solve that problem.

    I always "Y" it, but I'd ask parts express about it really.


    But I have installed a couple of those $138 12" subs, and always Y'd it, even Y'n it twice on one dual install of 2 of those very same subs.
