What's a "speaker level converter?
Link?
And what is the intended purpose of the capacitor? Bandpass?

should work just find by what I understand you are asking.

You dont need R and L both plugged into the sub though. So you can same some money by only getting one cable. Unless you use a mic you may notice some muddling of sound at first until you can get the low pass set up right on the back of the sub.

Other than that the volume will go up as you turn the volume up on the preamp.

I hope so, because it would be a pain to use the volume knob on the sub every time I needed to adjust the volume

From what I've gathered the speaker level converter is a RCA cable spliced with speaker cable so you can connect it to the filtered line in and take advantage of the subs crossover. Apparently the purpose of the cap is to help filter out the lows to the speakers but I'm not sure how effective that would be

As an option, you can add a capacitor(s) in series with your main speakers. The capacitor will block some of the lows that might otherwise overdrive your main speakers. This is a very imprecise method and generally only used with small speakers with limited low frequency power handling. We recommend trying approximately 200mfd of capacitance. Polypropylene capacitors are suitable though expensive. Alternately, non-polarized electrolytic (NPE) capacitor(s) with a minimum 100 volt rating may be used.
