    Which pin should I put an external sub on?
    MMR
    LOTR
    AFMR
    IJ
    TWD
    TRON

    I really like a sub on TWD.

    I have never heard any game sound better with an external sub than Tron. Tron has a lot of electronic music with fantastic bass that only the external sub can really bring out. HIGHLY recommended.

    Every other game on your list will improve the game but no like Tron. And IJ would be lower on my list because I found the quality of the music recording is just not that good so the sub doesn't add a whole lot (same with a game like GNR or Transformers.)

    I recommend the typical pinhead favorite ... the Polk PSW10. Typically found on sale in the $69 - $79 range (standard price being around $100). The PSW10 can accommodate up to 4 games on each sub.

    In my preferred order: TWD, Tron, LOTR. No opinion on IJ (never heard it with a sub; that said I usually don't bother with any B/W games.

    How do you connect 4 pins to it? Does anything else need to be purchased for each pin?

    Thanks

    Nope, nothing else is needed. It just has 4 separate pairs of ports on the back to accommodate up to 4 devices at onces (standard speaker wire.) Great sound quality and bang for your buck.

    Just keep an eye on it and wait for a price drop.

    Oh, and you just solder speaker wire directly to the internal sub on each pin. Preferably don't use alligator clips as some folks have suggested they're not always reliable. Run the speaker wire out the back of your game (through one of the holes covered by mesh) and run it to the sub. Very easy.

    With Pinnovators mixer the inputs are each isolated and you can adjust the volume on each individually. It's a great little gadget.
