I would like to add additional speakers to my set up. Currently the sonic hub runs 4, but I'd like to add another pair or two. It looks like I can use the zone 2 pre-outs to run to a seperate 2 channel amp, but could you split those rca cables to connect to a 4 channel amp?
Wondering of anyone has tried this. Thanks

depending on the amp, you may not have to use y adapters to split the signal. many 4 channel amps have an input selection switch to engage all 4 channels using only 2 channels of input. JL Audio amps have this feature.

otherwise it is perfectly acceptable to split the signal using a set of y adapters. just don't split it more than one time.

If you're just looking to add one more pair, check out fusion's zone amp. It will provide the same power as the sonic hub. a larger amp will require zone control as the speakers running off the SH won't have as much power, therefore need to be adjusted.

Maybe the expansion module is the way to go. A 4 channel would be nice, but I can easily get away with just one more pair of speakers in the cockpit. Keep it simple.

MB - how would I hook up the 4 channel to the zone outs on the sonic hub, which is only two channel?
