    I've hooked up my car subwoofers to my computer on various occasions. Check this out:

    I did it like this.

    First, I purchased a lawnmower battery and a car battery charger. I plugged in the car battery charger and connected it to the lawnmower battery. Then I connected the power, ground and antenna wires from the amplifier to the battery. Next, I plugged in the speakers and the line-out from the computer and voilà! A bumpin' computer system!

    like numerous different experts of their solutions, stay a fashion from Bose, particular i do this for a residing too. i'm unlikely to specify a brad cuz I have not got any thought your budget. So without funds my suggestion is to spend the comparable quantity on audio equipment which you in simple terms spent on your DVD, CD, and Receiver blended. So once you have a $200 DVD + $one hundred CD + $seven hundred receiver then spend $one thousand on the audio equipment or extra once you have have been given the money. audio equipment make the biggest replace! additionally for music and movies, in the journey that your funds helps, get some element with bigger front audio equipment that would represent bass. Subs are effective if it is the technique which you may nicely be able to pay for, even with the reality that bass is in maximum situations non-directional, even i will tell the placement a 30Hz tone is coming from so frontal bass is extra relaxing. And with the help of utilising all approach if which you will arise with the money for bigger front and a sub then do each and each. Listening tip, individuals have a bent to purchase overly bright or bass sounding audio equipment (Bose) on condition that side with the help of element to a "delicate" pair they seem to sound extra suited. it is until at last you get fatigued from paying interest to them. So have faith once you're listening "wow that treble is crisp and loud, sounds in simple terms precise"...... sense approximately it, is it over the actual, is that going to trojan horse me as quickly as i'm observing a action picture? wish this helps

    the other has 2 head, that is the left and right channel, this can be hooked up to your subwoofers, OR, hook that up to a amplifier, then connect it to speakers

    If it's a home audio powered sub, just buy one of these, and plug it into your sound card: then plug the RCA outputs into your sub.

    If it's a car audio sub, they work best using a stereo receiver as an amp, along with one of those adapters, and some preamp passive low-pass crossovers, called F-Mod's:

    Get something like SLAM (Symmetrically Loaded Acoustic Module) that you can just plug into the PC Sound Card.
