View Full Version : 1 Sub Output - Bad or doesn't matter at all?

01-17-2011, 08:01 PM
I just bought a clarion cz500 off amazon and just figured out that it has only 1 rca jack for the sub out. I have a kenwood kac-x20 2 channel for my amp. It says on the amp: (Bridged- L.Chnl) Does this mean that it only needs one rca plugged into the left input when it's bridged to work? Is it bad to have one sub out? It doesn't seem like it should be a big deal.

My JVC only has one. I just used a splitter.

Just get a Y spliter, Plug it in from the amp input side of the mono RCA from the deck to give you 2 RCA inputs or just put the single RCA into the left channel input.

the kenwood derives signal from just the left RCA when used in mono mode so just use one RCA and you will get full power. The right RCA input becomes a dead input on most of the kenwood amps when used in mono mode
