What kind of cable will I need to connect my X13 sub and my 975 preamp?

Also, is there a way to get shipping info for my order, so I have an idea when it will arrive and can stay home?

You will need an RCA male to RCA male cable. As we are redoing our whole cable line up, I would recommend Blue Jeans Cable. Please email billing@outlawaudio.com with your full name so they can provide the status of your order.

Oh, I've got one (or ten) of those. I just wanted to make sure it was the right connectors on each end, in case I had to order one.

If you could, please post your thoughts on the X-13 after you've had a chance to try it out. I don't see any only see one user review from real people with real rooms setups.

Thanks :

EEman, sounds like you missed gonk's post back in June. He had some positive things to say about the X-13:

I used an original LFM-1 from somewhere around 2004 or 2005 until this year. It's been a good sub for a long time and is still going strong at a friend's house, but it was about time for an upgrade when the Ultra-X13 cropped up so I took the plunge on an upgrade. The Audioholics reviewer's experience matches well with my own, so I'm going to skip trying to get into the same level of detail they have already posted.

If you get one, be ready for the box - it's huge and heavy, and my daughter had a lot of fun proving she could move it by pushing it across the hardwood from the front door to the den. The sub itself is a little taller and wider than the old LFM-1 (enough bigger that I could see the change, but not enough that my wife cared).

The Ultra-X13 does not look significantly different from the LFM-1, but performance is a different situation. As soon as we fired it up, my wife commented on the change. It was reminiscent of the process of trying out different speakers and electronics, or changing from a badly compressed audio source to a good lossless copy: the Ultra-X13's bass is clear and effortless, but doesn't overwhelm the rest of the audio spectrum.

Just in case somebody is on the fence about picking up an Ultra-X13 during the sale, my two cents is to take the plunge.

I just jumped on the promotion period and ordered two Ultra-X13's. Im super excited to get these as ive never had real subs before, but need help with what cables to buy. My current subs are passive so i only have speaker cable runs at present. With regards to cable requirements, i need to understand what the dual subwoofer XLR outputs do on my 976.

Are they discrete (carrying differing signals) which would require me to run two XLR cables, or are they dual Mono which would mean i could run one XLR cable to one X13 and daisy another XLR to the other sub.

I might be asking this is the wrong thread ?

Get standard XLR cables from Blue Jeans Cable. Make sure to get them as long as you need so you can move the subs around if need be. Both sub outs will have the same signal so you can daisy chain them if you want.
