    This is probably a simple one but if you want to run 2 powered subs but your receiver has only one sub line-level output, can you split the signal with a Y adapter? My first sub doesn't have a line level output so I can't continue from there to the second one.

    I allways have had the impression that unamplified splitting would degrade the signal and sound crummy. But I have not had experience with type of splitting on RCA jacks.
    I used to have to use these RF splitters at home so we could extend our antenna cable for more length. Doing this resulted in a horrid picture from a weakened signal.
    I guess the output from the receiver is stronger. I have never done it and everyone else does it with great success, its just how I saw it.
