    Better to have it than not!

    We've all been there. We go to our favorite Best Buy store, purchase the latest in Home Theater, then drive to the house, anticipating some serious surround-sound loud enough to drive the wife nuts (that's the whole point, right?). And then we realize the heartbeat of our system, the sub woofer, doesn't come with the cable necessary to make it go "BOOM!". Depending on which type of output/input you are dealing with, some receivers have an output with separate left/right, OR a single output, OR two outputs which allow for two subs. And then there's the other side of the equation: some subs have one input, OR two (yeah, a left AND a right, though with a sub, channel separation doesn't make any difference audibly). Therefore, it makes sense to purchase several of these "Y" adapters with a variety of ends, so you are never without. This way, you can drive home with a smile, confident you are not going to bang your head against the proverbial wall for coming up short, and having to drive BACK to Best Buy for a small, yet vitally-important cable connection. Yes Sir... It's better to have it and not need it, than to need it and kick yourself for not having it (especially since you were walking all around it while shopping). Even if it isn't necessary for your current system, eventually the time will come when it will be. Trust me! Just be sure to place it where it can be easily found when you DO need it.

    I wanted to attach a sound bar and a receiver to the one subwoofer I have without digging behind the subwoofer every time I changed the sound. So I looked at an RCA Y cable hoping it would do the trick. Sure enough, it works like a champ. I don't get any sound bleed to the other speaker since the receiver is off when the soundbar is on, or vice versa. Very happy with this, and most of the time Best Buy's house brand items work for the simple tasks. Don't waste money on a Monster splitter or other high end cable if it's just going to be tucked away behind components indoors. This is just fine.

    This product was good for my needs. I used this splitter to connect 2 powered subwoofers to my 5.1 home theater system. The splitter does a great job in splitting the signal but i have one complaint. You need to make sure the powered subwoofers are off so that you do not risk blowing out the subwoofer. I had the receiver off and the volume low on my existing woofer. As i was connecting the RCA jack to the splitter my existing woofer let out a huge feedback pop although the volume was at its lowest setting. No damage on the subs thankfully.

    I have a TV with only two audio outputs (red and white). But I wanted to connect both a home theater system and a stereo system to the TV. I bought two of these cord adaptors and was able to branch the single 2 plug output to a double output. It worked perfectly! Now I am able to play both TV and stereo at the same time and have a killer home theater and stereo system!

    I bought these to run a signal from my TV to my stereo in my RV. I needed these because I was already using an iSimple adapter to change the HDMI input on the stereo to composite video for the TV. I used these to piggy back onto the existing connections, and it worked perfectly.

    I got this because new TV's only have one digital audio out and I wanted to hook up my sound bar and Bluetooth headphones. It does not split the digital audio well. When I have it plugged in (even without plugging in a second cable) I get noticeably reduced quality sound at the sound bar. It simply did not accomplish what I had hoped for. This issue could be with my tv (a Westinghouse) or the sound bar or cables but I can not say.

    Very basic, but frills are sometimes over-rated

    Just needed to split a single audio output into two outputs. With the demise of Radio Shack, it's been harder to find these kinds of things in stores. Really glad that Best Buy had a pair that I could pick up in store. Connections were tight and both outputs worked as expected. No complaints, just what was needed.
