My mixer has only two outputs: one for the loudspeakers and one for the monitors.

My active loudspeakers and active monitor speakers are already connected to these 2 outputs and work fine.

Now I also got a pair of active subwoofers and would like to connect it to the same mixer. How can I do?


Active subwoofers tend to split off their own signal and provide the rest, so they usually have not just an input, but also an output where the signal without bass appears. You don't want to mess with the output of your monitor speakers (as they are for, well, monitoring and the kind of muddy oomph you use subwoofers for does not make a lot of sense there), so you'd likely use your loudspeaker output as subwoofer input and connect your loudspeaker input to the bass-less output of the subwoofer.
