Exactly. You'd set the volume on your monitors, and the volume on your subwoofer to be the max volume (that sounds right), and then use Windows to turn it down.

So i went ahead and ordered the BX5a's and Xonar STX. I am going to wait a bit before getting a sub. The speakers arrived today and i plugged them into my onboard audio and holy crap they sound amazing. And the amount of bass they produce surprised me. The only thing i have noticed is that when the speakers are set to 50-100% volume there's a bit of noise. And it gets worse as i turn the volume up in windows. Is this just from the onboard audio? They shouldn't do it when i get my sound card right?
