Hello,
I just purchased a new 5.2 Denon receiver. I’m running one sub at the moment and want to add another sub in the future.
My question is;
Streaming Netflix the signal is 5.1.
If I was running 2 subs will they both work with a 5.1 signal?
Thank you....

There is no signal that is 5.2. It is just a way for an avr to say it has two sub pre-outs, and most of the avrs that's just an internal splitter (saving you the expense of buying a splitter cable if you needed one :) ). So yes, if you have two subs your avr will be fine with a 5.1 signal :)

Yup. What HD said. Even the AVRs that do have 2 true sub outputs are summed together at the end of the day.
