Looking for a Subwoofer for my pc

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone, i currently have a pathetic 2.1 speaker system on my pc. i am not really looking to upgrade my speakers, but i will if i cant get a separate sub. my current MoBo is a Gigabyte X58A-UD3R (pic here: )
so i have all the coloured sound ports and 7.1 surround sound on-board compatibility.
can anyone please recommend me a sub that would connect to my pc, or even a decent speaker system with decent sub?
requirements:
# Must fit in pc with or w/out an adaptor of some kind
# Must be $200 or under
# Minumum 10' Sub

Thankyou for your help!!

The thing is it won't fit without an adapter. You are going to have to get a 3.5mm Y-splitter for the front channel jack. Then after that a 3.5mm to RCA.

You need the splitter to have an output to both the speakers and subwoofer. The other jacks are for other channels. The center/subwoofer are only used when in 5.1 or 7.1 mode.

Now if you ever upgrade the speakers you might wanna upgrade to a better sound card or external DAC.

As for the sub the BIC H-100 is an amazing sub. It hovers in and out of the $200 price range. If you look hard enough you should find it under $200. The Dayton Sub-100 and Sub-120 (10" and 12" respectively) are great subs for the price. They used to be cheaper, but still worth the price.

Now the 10" is a better musically, because the Sub-120 starts getting a bit boomy.
