Hi I'm am a little confused on connecting my HS10W sub to the monitor station V2. I understand connecting the C outputs to my sub inputs but where do I connect my sub outputs?
Thank you

I use the Central Station, same functionality. You don't HAVE to use the C output. That output would be for using a sub with 2 different sets of monitors.

If you only have one set of speakers, you would run the output out of the Monitor station to the sub. Then run from the sub outs to the monitors. This way of connecting will allow you to control crossover from the High Pass filter on the sub.

If you are using the sub with 2 sets of speakers, you will have to set your crossover manually on both sets of monitors and the sub.

Thank you Matt. I am using two sets of monitors and I want to be able to listen to a each set of monitors one at a time with and without the sub. I just don't know what to connect my sub outputs to so using the C output would be correct for this function. I appreciate you help.

Ok I feel stupid. I just tested my sub by itself with the outputs of the Mackie big knob passive controller to the inputs of the sub and I get sound. For some reason I didn't think I would get sound unless the outs of the sub were connected to my speakers or some other input. I haven't had my sub connected to my speakers for a long time now and just decided to incorporate it back to my setup.
Thanks for the help.

I’ve since removed my subwoofer from my setup but If I remember correctly my setup with the monitor station V2:
A: iloud micros
B: KRK Rockit 5s
C: KRK Subwoofer

Oddly when I removed my Subwoofer the “B” outputs stopped working. I had to move my Rockit 5s from the “B” output to the “C” output.

Before the Monitor Station I simply ran the satellites from the subwoofer connections and used the crossover but after purchasing the V2 I split all the connections up.
I believe that my room correction software was actually canceling out the subwoofer anyway.
