Hi,

A = revision
P = colour (p=dark gray, w=white, m=black)
M= magnically shielded (applies to all of them)

Some retailers like to cut down the full product cody and use only 5040A, but they all have three letters.

Our recommended subwoofer for 8020 is 7050, but 5040 can be used also. It has a different outlook, less SPL and less bass extension. You should check their product pages/datasheet for more accurate information.

5040 has RCA connectors while 8020 have XLR so you will need suitable cables. You should run the signal from the source to the subwoofer and from there to the speakers. 5040 operating manual has more information about the connections and proper adjustments.

Thanks for clearing up the name.

I dont know to much about how to add monitorsystems that fits, and the 7050 is out of my budget. can someone give advice as far as adding the sub to my current system?
