    i just bought the Sony 8" 50-Watt Powered Subwoofer model SAW-M20. i am new to home theatre and i thought this would be sufficient, but it turns out i want more bass, and i want to buy another subwoofer. my question is this: when i get this new sub, is there any way i can use both at the same time? i only have one sub output. thanks in advance.

    Clay;

    It's possible. You can buy a Y-splitter at Radio Shack that will split the signal into two paths, one to each subwoofer. The thing is, if you do get a better sub, you probably won't need that 50-watt one anymore. It will simply become redundant.

    If you want to keep things on the inexpensive side, look into another Sony sub, specifically the Sony SA-WM40. It's held in well regard among the under $200 class.

    thats the sub i was actually looking to buy. the thing i was really hoping to be able to do is buy another 50-watt one so i would only have to spend another 100. i am on a very tight budget. i just spent close to a grand on my home theatre system and i am only 16, and i dont get paid that much for my job, so u can probably see where i am coming from. i need to save up to buy a new tv first because all i have to work with now is an rf jack on the back (its about as old as me, haha) so what do u think the quality would be like if i were to link the two 50-watts together? thanks again.

    take the sony 50 watt back and buy the sawm-40 . this is aan awesome sub for the price. its only $189 at best buy. by the time you buy another 50 watt and the hardware to hook it up you will spend more money than the 100watt sub.

    Yes, return the old sub and upgrade. 2 x poor bass does not equal good bass...
