HI, I want to know if I can replace my passive non-powered subwoofer that is a part of my HTIB with a powered active subwoofer? I have been looking for hours and hours but could not get a definitive answer. I understand that the preferred method would be to ditch the HTIB and replace the entire system built from scratch with a separate receiver and speakers. I have a Sony BDV-E870, and would like to replace the supplied subwoofer with a Klipsch SW-110 powered subwoofer. I have the opportunity to purchase this sub for a great deal as an open box item and would like to be able to add/replace it to my home theatre system for some extra bass. I understand that this cannot be done the traditional way as my receiver does not have any extra audio output jacks other than the ones used to supply power to the included speakers (5 surround and 1 sub with special connectors). I was wondering if I could splice speaker wires from my sub output connection that is going to the passive sub and connect it to one of the inputs, either left or right, on the active sub? This is what the back of my receiver looks like ( http://www.trustedreviews.com/Sony-BDV-E870_Surround-Sound-System_review_setup-and-operation_Page-2 ) This is sub I want to add/replace into my system ( http://www.klipsch.com/sw-110-subwoofer ) I could be completely wrong, but I was thinking if I splice into the wires from the sub output of my receiver, and connect them to the powered subwoofer, that it may work since they would be supplying an audio signal to the powered sub, while not requiring any additional draw of power from the receiver since the Klipsch sub is a self-sufficient powered subwoofer. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
