NEED HELP. Concerns the Logitech z-2300 subwoofer.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Greetings. Answering any of the below would be extremely helpful.

 

So, I bought a Logitech z-2300 SUBWOOFER ONLY and I need to know if:

 

 

1: Would I be able to hook the z-2300 subwoofer up to my laptop?

 

                (NOTE: It was ONLY the sub so I do not have the sub controller that usually comes with it.)

 

                -IF SO, what equipment would I need in order to allow it to function?

 

                -IF NOT, what is a powerful sub that can hit really low tones that I can use for my laptop?

 

 

2: Would I be able to hook up Logitech z-5300 speakers to the subwoofer?

 

                -IF SO, how would I go about doing that?

 

                -IF NOT, what would be good speakers to pair up with the Logitech z-2300 subwoofer for MUSIC?

 

 

And finally,

 

 

3: If in fact I screwed myself by purchasing that sub, what are some good subs/speakers I can pair up together, or affordable systems I can buy for music?

 

 

Thank you for your time.

Looks like the sub has left/right RCA inputs and some kind of remote connection. That remote connection might need to be hooked to the controller to get it to work. Pictures I saw showed that the controller did have a plug for it.

If not, you would split the headphone audio out and run the left/right channels to both a set of speakers and a sub. But there is no guarantee it would integrate well with the speakers because it is designed to go with that setup. Separate subwoofers have various controls (crossover and a gain/volume adjustment) that would allow you to integrate the sub in well.

I would get the best speakers you can, and you can try and see if it works and decide for yourself. However, if you can still easily return the sub and get your money back, the best thing to do would be to save up for $100 for a subwoofer that is meant to integrate with other speakers. That's better than a Frankenstein sub/speaker setup smily_headphones1.gif

Thanks for the help, man. Well it turns out that I can return the sub, but what sort of "$100" subs would I be looking at and where could I get quality satellite speakers to compliment the sub?

Dayton SUB 800 and SUB 1000 at Parts Express. However, you can usually get the 1000 with free shipping through Amazon, making it close to the same price as the SUB 800.

Polk PSW10 is often available for $100. Although I would choose the Dayton SUB 1000 myself.

The Pioneer SW-8 has sometimes ended up on sale at around $100.

Speakers, depends on what your budget is. smily_headphones1.gif
