    Hi Alex, 

    You just connect both the red and yellow wires to the right positive terminal and connect the black to a ground. Then do the same with the red and yellow wires on your other subwoofer, but this time connect it to the left positive terminal and use the black wire for a ground. 

    You'll find detailed instructions in the link below.

    Will this connection work for T / 5i with Pioneer a-70da? And isn't it dangerous for the amplifier?

    Hi Artur, 

    The Pioneer a-70da is a class D amplifier so you would use this connection method.

    Connect the red and yellow wires to the positive speaker terminals but do not connect the black wire to the negative speaker terminal. You can merely put some electrical tape on the bare wire to avoid a short, or if you experience a hum from the subwoofer you can connect the black wire to a chassis ground. 

    If you have any other questions don't hesitate to reach out.

    Hi,

    I have a XTZ A2-300 (https://www.xtzsound.com/product/edge-series) class D amplifier and have recently purchased T/zero subwoofer.

    I am sure my amp will fall into this problem and the amp doesn’t provide additional RCA output nor chassis ground. What is my option then?

    I have a Yamaha RX-V685 Amp. I believe it's a class D.

    Once the subwoofer wires are connected to the front speaker connections as shown in the video - presumably I can then plug the normal speakers into the amp left and right via say banana plugs - in the same holes? 

    Thanks
