connect 2 subwoofers - one smaller

(1/2) > >>

malloy:
I have 2 RELs, 2 different of models of the T/x series. A 6.5" and an 8". Discounting the uneven bass/frequency responses, can I connect them both to the amp and not damage anything?

Has anyone done this before?

James Edward:
If it’s an RCA ‘sub out’ on your amp, you can just use a Y splitter and send the signal to both subs- no issue.

More likely, since you have REL’s, you’re using the speaker level outputs- that’s ok too. Here from REL is a connection guide covering the various possibilities. https://rel.net/blog/2018-01-04/how-to/how-to-connect-my-rel/

I’m pretty sure also that any POWERED sub has a very high input impedance that would not affect your amp in a negative manner when connected in pairs.

Yes I’ve done it- in my 5 channel setup I had just enough room to place a small Velodyne next to the sofa in addition to a bigger model up front. It was almost like having these-

Yes, I am using speaker level outputs. This is exactly the feedback I was hoping to get. Thanks!

And I am intrigued by the product in the link you gave. I wonder if any here has tried that?

Iím intrigued by the Buttkicker as well. Sounds like a drink we had in our college days  :lol:

malloy:
All the demos I see on YouTube are for the gaming versions. So, this is not really a sub, correct? It is just haptics and motion? Like those Sensurround systems of the Rollercoaster disaster flicksof the 70s?

I wonder if it imitate the bass pressure I feel during live events?
