Hello, My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be glad to assist you. Can you please tell me the Make and Model Number of your Cinema Kit?

it is a denon avr 3086

Expert:  Aric replied 2 years ago.
Thank you for the reply. Yes absolutely there's a way to connect more than one subwoofer. You would simply use an rca Y splitter at the Sub Out jack on the back of the Denon, and then run one side of the splitter via an rca cable to your existing subwoofer, and another to the subwoofer you would want to add. If you need further assistance or a link to the splitter, let me know.

that is great: can you send me a link to an rca y splitter on amazon?


 


the other thing I was wondering about was on the back of my subwoofer there are six of what look like speaker cable connects: what are these for?


 


My subwoofer is a monitor audio r 360


 

Expert:  Aric replied 2 years ago.
Thank you for the reply. What you would purchase is the RCA splitter at the link below:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gold-plated-splitter-plug-sockets/dp/B000L980MU/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1391711770&sr=8-2&keywords=rca+y+splitter

As far as your Monitor Audio subwoofer, those speaker cable connections are not standard on any current Home Theater subwoofers.

I can only locate the Monitor Audio Radius 360, which does not have those speaker connections you're referring to- only RCA stereo connections. So I'm not sure what exactly the subwoofer you have was intended for. If you can post a picture of the back of it, or perhaps check that model number then I can find more details about it.

Thanks, Aric,


 


The connections on the r360 are labelled amplifier input: I wonder what that is (I already have an phono connection plugged in..

Again, without seeing a picture of the back of your subwoofer, I cannot tell. The subwoofer should only have one or two RCA Inputs in a standard configuration.


The link below is what comes up when I search for your subwoofer, and it does not have 6 speaker type connections:

However, you do not want to be using any type of "Amplifier" input connections aside from the single RCA jack, Yours may be configured for the days of lore before receivers commonly had subwoofer output jacks.
