    For my maiden prem, I used pinwoofer backbox speakers and amp, pinnovators sub hookup and a polk woofer. Sounds like a concert when I crank it.

    For some reason, I get terrible feedback from the sub after I turn the game off, like it won't stop. Anyone else have this issue?

    Quoted from mbwalker:

    Just a hunch, but you might be overloading the low-level inputs on the Polk, so that's why the connection sounds better using the speaker inputs. Since I don't have a Polk, one thing I don't know is how the Polk level control is wired in the low level circuit. Or you might have the connections wired wrong (i.e. speaker + not going to + input on the RCA connector). Again, just a guess.
    If you are a DIY kinda person and want to also use the sub's amp, then get one of these. It's purpose is to take a speaker level signal and convert it to a low level input (i.e. RCA). It also provides a balanced to unbalanced connection.
    Of course, if you are uncomfortable wiring yourself, support one the vendors in this thread that supplies a prewired kit! [quoted image]

    You have my interest peeked, would I just tap into the wires right at the subwoofer just like I added to for the subwoofer?

    I had that on maiden. I bought a pinnovators setup, prob solved and much better sound

    The direct clip from cabinet speaker to sub works great on our other pins tho, just maiden had issues

    I didnt get them from Amazon, Newegg.com. It was more than 4 years ago though.

    Newegg doesnt stock the 10" woofers anymore I dont think.

    Your getting feedback from the cabinet speaker. Just reposition the subwoofer so it's not directly under the game's cabinet speaker. Let me know if that solves your problem! Mark

    I'm not directly under the cabinet speaker, it's back against the wall (but under the machine). Do I need to move it farther away and not under the game?

    Start by turning the sub volume down until is stops feeding back. The turn it up just to the point where it begins to feedback and try moving it around to see how that affects the feedback.

    This is what I am going to do. Can't wait!

    The Polks are still @ $99. Maybe this will be their new price

    You will dig it. Best sounding game we have by far. Metallica speakers were a huge upgrade and well worth it, but met is mono I believe and maiden prem is stereo. Plus, bigger speakers in Imdn. good luck!!

    Ordered one thanks for the link. Honestly never had one but after playing Alien it just seemed like a game that deserves the sound punch. Hopefully I will hook it up without blowing it up. lol

    Does that game have a sub already? Just hook the leads to it and you should be good. You'll need polarity of course.

    Got my stuff in today. Plugged it all in to my CV. I am pretty disappointed. My Polk hooked up jumped off the base cabinet speaker will shake the house. I had to turn up the sub all the way just to hear it. Not what I expected. If ain't broke dont fix it I guess. Maybe you have to have their sub...

    Hello whthrs166. It's normal to have to turn up the sub with the PINsmx and when using our sub kits due to the output protection. All our kits come with a satisfaction guarantee! If the kit does not meet your satisfaction, we will refund your money. Please contact me directly and we will work with you to see what is going on.

    Thanks, Mark
