spencersmb Posted August 14, 2021 Share Posted August 14, 2021 I'm considering upgrading my current Denon 4500x receiver to the Emotiva RMC-1, but I'm not sure how to hook up the subs because the Emotiva only has XLR outs, while the subs only have LFE/RCA inputs. One thing to note that because the location of my components are in the utility room, I've had to run 2 x 70 ft RCA cables next to each other to reach the subs in their current location. Also I've heard that I can get an XLR splitter to connect the 2 subs that way to the RMC-1. So even with the splitter, I'm still stuck with what to do about the cables. A.) Do I get 2 x 70 ft XLR cables to run through my walls and then get a small RCA -> XLR adapter to connect the sub? B.) Keep the current RCA cables in wall, and get a small RCA to XLR adapter to connect in the utility room C.) Sell subs and upgrade to SVS - (most expensive and hardest to try and get the wife on board with lol). D.) Another option I'm not aware of? Additionally, what sound am I'm compromising by not having a true XLR connection? Thanks for any help or ideas! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
