  • Sound card with a dedicated sub out?

    I have the sound-card that came with the motherboard but it doesn't have a dedicated out for the subwoofer.. can you recommend a card with one?

    Any card that has more than just stereo output can be configured via software to output just the bass to one of the extra sound channels.

    If you're looking for a USB soundcard, check out this thread: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/car-...card-list.html

    If PCI, hmm, I don't know. Someone else might have good suggestions.

      I configured my onboard mic input as a subwoofer output. Works perfect.

        Ah yes, I forgot that most modern audio chipsets will let you reassign the inputs as extra outputs.

          Can you give me a run down of how you did this?? That is very interesting to me. Thanks

              On the newer Realtek and SigmaTel embedded chips (and others I'm sure), if you install their driver software, when you plug something into a particular jack, a popup window comes up, asking you what you just plugged in, giving you options like: Microphone, Line-In, Front speaker out, rear speaker out, center/subwoofer out, etc.
