    Can I use a Subwoofer from my altec lansing computer speaker 2.1 setup connected to my yamaha a/v receiver as a temporary HT subwoofer solution till I buy a real sub?

    as long as nothing will blow-up and they will reinforce my mini-monitors in the bass dept. i am ok with it.

    u can connect the sub DIRECTLY to the outputs of your soundcard - use a Y-connector from radio shack to split the audio signal to your speakers AND your standalone subwoofer. [​IMG]

    you should be able to hook it up just like any other powered sub to you av receiver. i'm wouldn't expect really great performance from a computer sub in a ht setup but it shouldn't hurt anything either.
