You can get what is commonly referred to as a "Y" splitter. Audioquest makes some good ones that won't break the bank and sound decent. Or you could get a Velodyne SMS-1 and go all out.

Oh, just make sure you get the male/female ends correct on the splitter. It's vaguely important.

Here ya' go. This would be the correct one for your application... http://www.amazon.com/AudioQuest-splitt ... B000GUSQJG
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

Re: TFM-75 serial#00001

I recently picked up a Samson S1000 that was powering a pair of SVS 20-39s which led me to do a little research. They offer an amp similar in output to the 75 for $550 shipped, brand new, looks like a great sub amp!

Re: TFM-75 serial#00001

If your going to build a sub, maybe you should consider a plate amp.
You get a lot of power and built in EQ as well as the other goodies needed to tune a room.
I built a couple of dual subs using Dayton 12" drivers and OAudio 500w bash amps
http://www.oaudio.com/500W_SUBAMP.html
To play with my arrays.....they are a nice combo

Image

There are a ton of kits available.
A step up would be the Servo subs from Rythmik Audio

http://www.rythmikaudio.com/products.html

I have a couple of these on each side in open baffle 2 ch set up.

If you have DIY skills, the world gets a lot smaller.
The ones I have shown are just what I choose.....could afford.
With a little research on the net you can build really kick ass subs.

Re: TFM-75 serial#00001

JL Audio subs come highly reviewed. The most important thing about building your own sub is to make sure the box matches the speaker. There's a lot of programs out there to help with the design and if you get it right you're in for a real treat! I've literally seen / heard $30 MTX subs knock the crap out of $300+ drivers no shit.

Re: TFM-75 serial#00001

I was trying to find a program a friend suggested awhile back, winspro? or something like that, I'll find out from him later and let you know. If you input the t/s parameters you can graph out the response of the cabinet, slot ports are suppose to be the best. You can really fine tune the output with a good program and get the most out of it and see visually the response curve and total output, pretty cool.
