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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
