I currently use my 861v4 + HD621 with 1 subwoofer (Analog out to LFE). The speaker setup is: 2x DSP5200 coax & 1 DSP5200HC coax, the rears are analog M2 speakers.

I read everywhere that putting 3 subs in the system will increase experience, so my question is:

Having 1 digital out (coax) free and 1 analog out free, can I combine another analog subwoofer together with a subwoofer which gets it input from digital.

And if possible which subwoofers could I use for the digital output?

I don't think digital output will work with analogue sub, cause it is MHR encrypted, you could use a antomode2.0, dual mono mode (1in 2out) and connect the third sub in the RAC output.

The output is always full scale (0dB) signal, so it has to be a Meridian digital sub that supports SPDIF + COMMS or a DSW SpeakerLink Sub providing a suitable adaptor is used like a Reviver.

I use two subs (Genelec 7071a) by daisy chain.

4 x Seaton Submersive subs, two on front wall and two on the rear. All sourced from the .1 of my 861v4. I use a Xilica DSP pro audio EQ to provide separate feeds for the front and rear sub pairs and parametric EQ to the subs in order to tidy up some low frequency room modes.

Thank you all for your replies.

su .3 will not be posible, how do I configure 2 subwoofers as left & right, can this be done with 1 OA03 card?

When I try to set this up, is mentions I have to add another card with Jumper:

#2 Sides % rears
#4 Front Sides
#6 Centre Sub Sides

I use the current card now only for rears and subwoofer, the centre is dig. out.

Can I adjust jumper settings to #2 where the 2 subwoofers will act as sides & I remain using the rears.

What will the impact on .1 in movies?
