Forgive my ignorance - I'm an HT newbie. I've just purchased my first HT system and I have a question about the subwoofer cable I bought. The cable consists of two pieces, a regular 6 meter cable and a "Y" cable with one female connector to two male connectors. How am I supposed to use this Y connector? Right now, I am using the regular cable to connect the subwoofer out of my receiver to the sub-in of my subwoofer. I have a related question: I have read in several places that the "direct mode", or "source mode" that bypasses much of the processing of the receiver is best for listening to stereo recordings. I would like to use that when I listen to CDs which I do 90% of the time. However, on my receiver, that bypasses the bass management as well such that I don't get any sound from the subwoofer when in this mode. I know I can use the speaker-level inputs to the sub instead, but I would then lose the LFE .1 channel sound when watching DVDs. Is there a way to hook up my system such that I get subwoofer working when in "direct mode", and have the LFE working when watching DVDs, without having to re-wire the system in between? Thanks in advance!
