Acoustic triggering with a double bass kit

Hey everyone and anyone, i've got pretty much every thing that i needed before to trigger my bass drum on my kit, but i just recently switched to a newer setup and got a second bass drum, so i had to buy another trigger for it. Does anyone the special way that the triggers need to be set up and hooked into the module and how the module needs to be programmed for it to work with 2 bass drums, or if i need to run it through a spit connector or something to get it to work right and which trigger hole to plug the second trigger into? I use roland rt10k triggers and an alesis dm5 module, if anyone knows, thanks...

DO NOT run a split connector. It will ruin what you're trying to accomplish. Take ur 2 triggers and plug em into tom 1 and 2 and fix them to a bassdrum sound perfectly parallel to each other.

Trust me :)

You can assign each output to different triggers. Dial in the trigger you want then push OUTPUTS and you can choose between AUX and MAIN. If you push MIX you can pan left/right
