Subwoofer help...

I would like to add a sub-woofer to my home theater system.

My system calls for speakers in the 6 -> 16 ohm range.

When I searched Ebay, I found some speakers, but found out that they need a crossover.

My system has an output for a subwoofer.

Could someone show me a link to something for sale
or else the specs I need to look for?

Thanks,
Andy

The crossovers are used on woofers and tweeters. That makes only the
low or high frequencies are routed to the correct speaker and the other
frequencies are not over powering the woofer or tweeter.

If your amp has an output dedicated to the woofer, then they may not
need a crossover. It would be built in the amp.

Often the sub-woofers only have one speaker and are designed to be fed
from both channels, that may be the reason for the woofer output on the
amp.

\"amplified subwoofer\"

Andy (OP), there is no built-in amplifier for a subwoofer on your
system. This is a common thing, driving a large low frequency speaker
from the main unit is not something that everyone will do, so why pay
for the heavy power electronics?

Personally, I find subwoofers a waste of time, unless the other speakers
are weedy. But some folks like earth shattering explosions.

By the way, a lot of these surround speakers, sub woofers, and receivers
you will find thrown out, or very cheep on eBay.

Folks are downsizing, or partners find them too complicated and the
wires ugly. Just have a read of the different surround encoding systems,
how you get them, decode, adjust the timing, arrange the furniture, is a
lot of faff worthwhile for only for the most dedicated movie viewer.

Years ago, I visited a home where they had just bought a new CRT TV with
attached surround speakers.

The six were neatly fitted in a row under the TV.

Ye could say, they invented the soundbar ;-)

Thanks. I have a subwoofer with my home computer. Logitech system and it sounds better than without the subwoofer of previous systems.

But I see your point.
