Default Connecting Sub to 003 rack

I am new to the 003 world and have just set everything up. I am using Yamaha HS 50M monitors with the HS 10W sub. I can't seem to figure out exactly how to hook up the monitors and the sub so that both are functional at the same time. I have the monitors hooked up to the main monitoring inputs on the back of the 003. Where does the sub go? I had it in the Alt ins, but then it would only activate when the Alt button was selected on front, thus nullifying the monitors... This may seem dumb but I am stuck. Any help would be great! Thanks a lot.

I don't have any of those speakers, but a quick look at the sales literature seems to indicate that you connect the subwoofer to the 003 monitor outputs, then connect the full-range speakers to the outputs on the sub.

You may want to get your hands on a passive studio quality crossover, I would hesitate to be filtering my monitors signal path through the electronics of a subwoofer. You need precision in monitoring and any degredation will only hinder your ability to mix well.

I have the Central station, and after a member of the DUC advised, I plugged the output of my Mac's optical into the Central Station as well, now it has everything from both the computer and my PT rig.


Good luck...
