A Killer Idea for tuning and Using a Sub Live

From Mix. What more can I say - less is more is always best.

However, if you really want to mind your bottom, here's an alternative approach: Use one of the console's auxiliary outputs as a subwoofer send. This concept removes unwanted audio from the subwoofer simply by virtue of the fact that you turn up the subwoofer aux only on the channels that need to be in the sub. Channels such as kick drum, floor tom, bass guitar and synth get fed to the sub aux, while channels such as lead vocals, hi-hat and the triangle microphone do not. The aux output designated as the subwoofer feed is usually routed to a crossover or lowpass filter, from the filter to a compressor and then to the subwoofer amplifiers.
