My question is basically whether it is okay to connect two active monitors to the same output channel on a subwoofer, including cases where only one may be on at a time? There's no weird drive issues are there?
I have my computer and piano in a L-shaped setup. My piano is to my right when I am at the piano and my computer is to my left when I am at the piano.
My two current monitors are on the left and right (hereafter shall be referred to as the center monitor) of my computer but that means both my monitors are on my left when I am at the piano. I wanted to add a third monitor to sit on the right side of my piano (hereafter which shall be referred to as the right monitor) so that I can use the left and center monitor at my computer, but use the center and right monitors at the keyboard.
The left and center speakers would be Yamaha HS7s plugged into an HS8 subwoofer. The third, right monitor would be an HS5 and would be plugged into the same output channel as the left speaker on the subwoofer. When at the piano, the left-right output channels on the sub would be reversed when I am at the piano left-channel would come out the center speaker and the right-channel would come out the right speaker.
Sometimes all speakers would be on, but other times only either the left or right speaker would be on.
Is there a problem with splitting the same output channel from a subwoofer to drive two active monitors? And is there an issue where one might be consistently powered down while the subwoofer is driving the other?
