Sorry for reposting...but didn't know which thread to post this in.

How can I use (2) 1094a's in a 5.1 system for home theater without using a mixer or any other software?

I want to purchase two individual 1094a's and use them in my Home theater setup. Since this is an older model can i daisy chain the subwoofers? I will have a meridian audio processor, and (5) genelec monitors. Three in front and two in back. Since i'm not using for professional recording or mixing equipment can this be done?

thanks,
Doug

Hi Doug,

The correct wiring scheme can be found from the 1094A operating manual, page 7, figures 11 and 12 (depending whether you would like to use stereo or mono subwoofers). Additionally you need to connect the subwoofer output of the Meridian processor to both subwoofers sub inputs. Surround channels should be routed directly to speakers as the 1094A has bass management for three channels.

Speaker settings in the Meridian processor should be as follows:

Left and right main - Large
Center - Large
Left and right surround - Small with 85 Hz or 80 Hz crossover
Subwoofer - ON

Thanks for the accurate reply. Both diagrams show that the center signal needs to be split in two directions (right center and left center). Does this mean i need to find a xlr cable that splits the center signals? Are there adapters that are available for this?

Yes, you need Y adapters - from one female to two males.
