Then you need to split each of the output from the sound card into 2. Use that RCA Y-splitter and plug into the sub.

I never tested it out, but according to my knowledge, it will work without a problem. I am not responsible if your sub, speakers, computer, or yourself blow up.

FOR AV40, CROSS AT 80HZ.
mmm Thanks !!.. but now you scared me lol; I'm actually reconsidering getting that sub.

Does the sub have outputs? I mean, if it did you could wire directly to the sub and then use high pass filtered outputs directly to the speakers? Just thinking?

Yes it does, but it's the amplified input(from receiver/amp). The AV-40 has a built in amp, so it would not work.

Here's what I did. My AV40's amp was broken so I rewired it so it's now a passive speaker(the one with the amp). Then I used my receiver to power the AV40, and before the amplified signal reaches the AV40, it is fed to the sub. But then there's no point of the AV40 having an amp, thus, don't do this unless your AV40's amp is broken.

Edit: nvm, i decided to save and eventually get a receiver/real speakers for a home theater. Ill use my shures + STX for now. Thanks for all the help though; i wasn't convinced about spending +$300 on this setup.

Unless the speakers are really, really nice and the room is setup properly...I'd rather listen to music on a good set of 'phones anyway...I'm a detail freak.

You are going love the Shures on the Xonar!
