Just purchased a Hsu STF-3, which leaves me with a Def Tech ProSub80 as an additional sub. Which of the following hookup options would give me the best sound?
a) LFE out to the STF-3, and the ProSub80 to the center channel using speaker-level inputs.
b) LFE out to the STF-3, and the ProSub80 to the L&R mains using speaker-level inputs.
c) Using a Y-splitter to connect both subs to the receiver's LFE out.
Thanks for the help!

Using a y-splitter. I asked the boy's at SVS about using two subs and you have to do a few this different when calibrating two subs. I thought they said to calibrate the two subs like 3 dec. lower because of having double the output. (83db with a spl meter and say, Avia.) Don't quote me on this... I just went with one SVS to make it simple.

I vote for option C. Your next decision is whether to co-locate them or to put them in different spots in the room -- these options will yield different effects.
