Hey all, I have some 8030's, a 7050 and a Belcanto CD2 that I would like to hook up, the CD2 has two XLR outputs for L&R though not sure how to incorporate the 7050 ?

Hi,

You should run XLR cables from the L&R outputs to subwoofer's FRONT LEFT and FRONT RIGHT inputs. Then another pair of cables from subwoofer's FRONT LEFT and FRONT RIGHT outputs to the speakers.

Be sure that the Belcanto's level setting is set to VARIABLE.

Remember to engage the 85 Hz bass roll-off dip (2nd dip from left) on the speakers.

Also please read the subwoofer's operating manual carefully for other settings: http://www.genelec.com/documents/opmans/OM7050b.pdf
