Anti-Mode 8033C/8033S-II/8033cinema Connection Examples

Standard Home Cinema configuration. Anti-Mode 8033 is connected between the AV-receiver/pre-processor and the subwoofer.

 

Connecting 8033S into a 2.1 system with stereo pre-outs available. Note: only 8033S has the required stereo input.

 

Connecting 8033 into a 2.1 system without stereo (or mono) pre-out. This connection requires DSPeaker speaker-level to line-level adapter (available here).

 

Connecting 8033S into a system with two alternative input sources: one LFE and two stereo pre-outs. Note: this connection requires the Anti-Mode 8033S version and the DSPeaker stereo-to-mono summation adapter (Not the same as Y-cable) which can be purchased here or built as instructed here.

 

Connecting two subwoofers (reproducing the same mono/LFE  signal) into a single 8033 can be done with RCA Y-cable. If the subwoofer(s) have invertable/adjustable phase setting, see the next example.

 

Connecting a single Anti-Mode 8033 into two subwoofers (reproducing the same mono/LFE signal) can be done by utilizing the secondary 180 degree output of the 8033, but only if the corresponding subwoofer has phase inversion switch or adjustable phase to + or  - 180 degrees.

 

Connecting 8033 into a setup with stereo subwoofers. This configuration requires two 8033 units, either 8033S or 8033C.

 

If the subwoofer supports balanced XLR inputs, it is adviced to connect the 8033 into the subwoofer using balanced connection. The balanced XLR adapter for the 8033 is sold here, or it can be built as instructed: (RCA 0-out to XLR pin 2, RCA 180-out to XLR pin 3, RCA ground to XLR pin 1)

 

A single 8033 can easily correct even four subwoofers, when 180 degree output is utilized with two additional Y-cables. Although similar configuration could be achieved by splitting the signal of a single output into 4 identical outputs (via for example 3 Y-cables), the presented configuration here is recommended because of the output impedance.
