I've just recently purchased a surround sound setup, and I am curious as to the best way to set it all up. As far as the 2.1 system goes, I've heard to go from the output of the interface into the sub, then out the sub to the monitors. However, my interface (Presonus Firepod) only has 1/4" outputs, and my sub (Yamaha SW10) only has XLR inputs. Should I use a direct box, 1/4" to XLR converter or cable, etc? Also for the 5.1 system, is the best way to just use the regular L and R outs from the interface into the L and R monitors, and then just use 4 other outputs to the other monitors and assign them in my DAW? If needed, I'm running Sonar 8.5 PE with a Presonus Firepod.
