Looking at a new sub amp that has only 1 RCA input. Would you recommend summing the L+R channels in the DSP for the 1 output I'd be using? Or should I just use L or R? If summing, do I have to set each input channel to 50% in the mixer, or can I set each to 100%? Would summing @ 100% create clipping at the output of the DSP?

DSP is Dayton DSP-408.

Sum left 50% and right 50% to one output.

On topic question here, why not just use a single L or R input, i.e. # 7/8, to output to the single input amp?

That would be a left or right signal only. Which would be either a left stereo or right stereo signal. It would be missing information that way. Sum left and right to get a mono signal. All info is there that way. Mono is the opposite of stereo.
