    Second Sub

    I am also considering adding a second Sub-woofer to to gear. Could some-one/any-one tell me the best way to split the signal to both subs and also how the at what level/frequency to calibrate woofers which are not of the same size. A 10" and 15"

    Thanks.

    UC while its possible to mix a 10" with a 15" I'm not sure its all that advisable given what are you trying to gain? Almost all the suggestions I've ever seen on doubling up subs is to make then as identical as possible in order to get the most benefits from it. I'd suggest you'd be better off with a single large (better) sub then two mismatched ones. For example you would likely be better off with say a sub like mine and a good power amp vs your 10 and 15 in the same room. Just a thought.

    PS I'm coming to Ontario at the end of Feb. (Port Hope and Peterbourgh)

      It would be extremely difficult to calibrate equal output from 2 subs with drivers differing so much in size. The 15" would be operating just above idle and the 10" would be running at or above safe operating limits

        Thanks guys! I was hoping to keep and use my sub. I listened to the servo-15 again today and I think I will be going for it. However, I was hoping to still use my sub. ops:
