How to Connect two Separate Speakers and a Subwoofer?


Standard Member
I recently bought a pair of Genius PC speakers but I would like a bit more loudness and low end, so being very non technical about these issues I've had to do a little bit of research. I want to buy another set of speakers and add a subwoofer. Can some of you kind people tell me whether or not this will work?:

1) Buy another pair of the same speakers I already have
2] Buy an active subwoofer
3) Buy a 3 way stereo headphone adapter for the speakers and sub
4] Buy 3.5mm to RCA audio adapter for the sub connection

Will this work with most subwoofers? I have noticed that there doesn't seem to be any subwoofers that are sold on their own when I look at the PC ranges. As I said, I'm not very bright when it comes to these matters so I hope I can be helped out a bit and this can be resolved.

I'm just thinking, even if this can work, it will probably be overkill as most of these hifi subwoofers are a lot more powerful than the PC ones which come as part of a speaker package - even the cheapest ones. These little Genius speakers are only 10w each.

Any advice appreciated, as well as an answer to my initial question. Thanks again.
