First of all I don't recommend that you run two subs of one make and two of another. This would make it difficult if not impossible to ballance the low frequencies.
Running 4 subs off of the Denon can be done as it has two outputs use one output with a "Y" splitter and the other two of of the other output using another splitter.

Yeah, I gotta second the motion that mixing your subs isn't a great idea... especially since you're talking about two different size drivers with two completely different design approaches. The slot-ported front firing box will behave very differently from the down-firing box with a rear cylindrical port and getting them to integrate nicely will be quite a chore.

If you DO go this route, you'll need to be able to process them separately. EQ curves will be different, X-over points will be different, delays will be different... difficult if they're all being fed the same signal from the same processing unit.

Yes, that's fine. Denon has dual sub outputs and both RSL and SVS have "throughput", i.e. rca inputs and outputs, so for example, Denon>SVS in, SVS out>RSL. Or other way around if RSL outputs are not tied to the level control (they shouldn't be). Keep 2 subs relatively close to your (small 4" woofer) L-R mains, spread the other 2 subs around room if you can, for smoothest averaged response over the listening area. Each sub can be adjusted individually, the RSLs, remotely to boot. Nothing detrimental about mixing brands/models at LF in the complex acoustic fields of small rooms.

cheers

Thank you for the voice of scientific reason!:neener: How are you AJ? Hope you are well.

I'll be in Orlando in 2 weeks rockin' it at Disney.

Take care and be well,

Anand.
