Adding a 7050B sub to my pair of 8030As

Adding a 7050B sub to my pair of 8030As

Hi,

I bought a pair of 8030As a couple of years ago and I've happily been using them with my TV for a couple of years. I've decided I now want to add a 7050B but before I dive in I just need a couple of things clearing up! I

I currently run a stereo phono out of my TV into a little 4 channel mixing desk, then I take the stereo monitor outs of the desk into each speaker. Am I right in saying that with the 7050B it's just a case of running the XLRs from the desk, into the sub and then to the speakers?

Also, with 8030's and the 7050's, am I right in saying that I'm restricted to 2.1 and would have to look at the 7060 for 5.1?

Thanks!

Hi,

Yes, that is correct. :)

Thanks!

The 7050B has connections for 5.1 channels so you can use it for 5.1. The only problem with 8030's is the max SPL capability which will be little bit lower for the sub than for the speakers. That's why we recommend one model size bigger sub for 5.1 with 8030's.
