Great speakers, need a sub though, i have no idea how to hook one up. Also if i change volume on the speakers will it lower volume on the sub.

 

Also i'm in the uk where could i find a cheap small sub?

You would probably want to find a sub that has can accept a line input and output a line signal. A good example is the SVS SB-1000.

 

But what is your setup right now? Line out from the computer to the speakers?

You can connect the sub to the input that´s not been used in the A2.

If  the "aego m sub", that I don´t know,  have its own amplifier,  I think so.  Otherwise, not.

No. You will not be able to integrate a sub with the A2s such that you can turn the volume down on the A2s and have it turned down on the sub. The A2s are not designed to work with that way.

You need a powered sub that has RCA inputs and outputs. Connect the computer to the sub via the RCA inputs, then run the RCA outputs on the sub to the A2s. Once you get the volume of the sub and A2s integrated so that the bass is balanced, then use your computer to control the volume from then on.

I don't understand why that would help? According to the A2 manual, that's an input; it's not designed to output sound.

Because inputs are generally bridged, so you can have 2x input or 1x input 1x output. Its no different to putting a splitter along the source path.

I guess that saves the cost of a splitter smily_headphones1.gif
