Can I add a second subwoofer?

Do subwoofers get louder as they break in?
Do Subwoofers Get Louder as They Break-In? Yes! It's important to remember that break-in always sounds different than your speakers will after they are broken in, but if you take care of them and listen during this process then you can achieve fantastic results.
Can I mix subwoofer and speaker brands?

In fact, there is rarely any reason to keep your subwoofer the same brand as your main speakers, perhaps other than cosmetics.

A ported subwoofer contains the woofer and one or more ports, which allows the air to escape out of the box (vented). This is what gives you the bigger and louder sound out of one box because there are two different mechanisms that are moving the air -- the port and the woofer.
Can you split subwoofer pre out?
Registered. Y split at the pre-out on the receiver... works fine.
Do two subwoofers make a difference?
Dual subwoofers will greatly increase the available system headroom, providing greater dynamic range, reduced output compression, lower distortion, and less potential for overdrive artifacts. In short, running duals will give you cleaner, more accurate bass at extreme drive levels.
Are dual subs good?
They sound amazing. They can really handle a lot of power. They make the people in the back seat bounce. I really recommend this product, for the price it is defenitely worth it.
Can you stack subwoofers?
What Stacking Subwoofers Does. The only benefit to stacking subwoofers is simple – greater output. When you put one subwoofer on top of the other, you effectively increase the output (volume). In your room, that equates to about a 6dB increase in volume.
What is a dual subwoofer?
While typical subwoofers have a single voice coil, dual voice coil (DVC) subwoofers use two separate voice coils, each with its own connections, mounted on one cylinder, connected to a common cone. ...

Is it bad to play subs in the cold?
Be very careful when playing your subs in very cold weather. I've seen cones and surrounds crack even without being turned up too loud. The cold is very bad for plastic because it makes it so stiff,the same goes for surrounds being made out of foam or rubber or even a blend of the two .
Do new subs smell?
It's normal from a new subwoofer to have a slight burning smell when you first turn it on. This is because the glue needs time to burn off though so this should go away in a few days or so if you've been using it for a while.
