Do I really need my "midwoofer"?

    A few years ago I purchased a set of five small Cambridge Soundworks speakers. They came with a small subwoofer which the instructions told me to wire together with the front right/left speakers to provide a little extra bass.

    Later I purchased a subwoofer, which has its own connection to the receiver. So now I'm wondering... is that small woofer, wired in with the right/left speakers, really necessary? I'm guessing it still is, that it captures midrange sounds too high for the sub but too low for the small speakers, but I wanted to get some opinions from people who are familiar with this sort of thing.

    Personally I'd keep it, but wire it into the centre.... if its mainly for movies.

    You could remove the old subwoofer and set all your speakers to SMALL, thus sending the low(er) frequencies to the subwoofer that is directly connected to the Av amp/receiver.
    Or just leave your "midrange" woofer where it is, depending on your preference.
