For my future reference(Speaker setup help)

I have two powered monitors connected to a pre-amp right now and would like to know what I would need in general to upgrade that to a 2.1 setup/ add a sub. I’ll be doing this in a month-ish so I want to figure all the stuff out early.

Thanks in advance

The speakers are JBL 104’s connected to a Micca Origen (the newest one, I don’t remember the full name).

I think you could split the output with a y splitter and run to the sub and the powered speakers…?

Thanks, I’ll check it out

if your sub has single LFE input use this after 3.5 mm splitter…

Another option is to find a Sub that has RCA passthrough, like the attached back panel of a random one I found.

Take a look at the JBL LSR 310 S, Adam Sub 7 or the Fluid Audio F8S Subwoofer. This is high-quality pro equipment and with XLR a good idea for the long cable paths caused by the subwoofer. Just before the JBL 104 use a Neurik converter. I do not really recommend cheaper subwoofers.
