Okay, so I've decided to go with the low Level hookup for sure. Now I remember hearing somewhere that you need to buy a splitter so that you can input the signal to both the L and R inputs on the back of the sub for some reason or another... I can't remember what it was though. Is this true or did I just read it wrong? I can't remember where I read it otherwise I'd go have another look to be sure.

Jason, the EP350 has a single line-level input to receive the output from the sub out on the receiver, so there's no need to consider the situation where a sub has both L and R inputs. One wire out, one wire in.

When a sub does have L and R inputs, either one can be used(they join inside)with a single wire. Both can be fed with a Y arrangement so that the two voltages make it easier for the sub amp to turn on(this is probably what you read), but it isn't essential since most receivers have plenty of voltage output even when only one sub input is fed.

Thanks John, that sounds exactly like what I read. I thought the EP350 had two low level inputs from a pic I saw on the net. Have a look for yourself, I don't remember where I got this pic, but it looks like it's an EP350 and there's an L and R input... maybe it's an older model and they decided to axe the extra input. I will take your word on the single input over the random picture I found though :P.

You are correct Jason, the older EP350 does have the two inputs. At least mine does.

My back plate is different from the one you posted, it also has an "audio/video" equalization switch. In fact it may be older than yours (Serial Number EP3500115) . Perhaps an Axiom Historian can list the history of the 350.

My 350 from about a year ago, before I sold it for a 500, also had left/right inputs. I was told that I only needed to use one of them, however, I did buy a "Y" cable from Radio Shack which allowed me to go from one to two inputs...not sure it made any difference though.

Yes, but since Jason is getting the new EP350v2, with among other things a single line-level input , the reply was framed to reflect that.
