However to wire it with a sub you'll need to do a series of splitters since splicing wouldn't be worth the effort. It depends solely on the sub though and what it uses as input like say the normal single rca style input or a 3.5mm jack or something else. If you have one in mind I can come up with a solution to the wiring.

Or he could get a sub that has speaker wire inputs, and just run the speaker wire from the Lepai TA2020 to the sub, then from the sub to the bookshelfs.

Yah it's possible to do that too, he just hasn't specified a possible subwoofer so that may not be an option.

Edit: Adding to that, most of the multi use subs that are sold today for either home theater use or just wherever they do usually give that option Pioneer stated, the 10inch polk has that capability that I know off hand and some others that are in the lower price range as well.

Haven't ever heard any dayton products personally but looking at it online seems like it would be a decent choice. It's definitely got the hook ups needed but yah I see the $10 shipping upcharging through the site and the $10 for basic shipping, they charge a lot more for Quebec?

What about ordering them through Amazon? Seems a little spendy just for shipping to me, since P-E offers free US shipping on orders over $100, lol.

He's in Quebec so it's the normal rate for international on something 30+ lbs but yes he should try a Canadian amazon site or other type of online store if they do it cheaper (and hopefully in country as well)
