If I purchase a home powered subwoofer that has RCA Line In Inputs can it work with my TV ? From what Ive read I can just connect RCA jacks from my Audio Out on my TV to the RCA Line In on the subwoofer ?
Will that give me bass from tv shows, movies and a PS3 ?? Will there be any sync issues or is it just that simple ?
I just purchased a Sony HT - CT150 soundbar with subwoofer. The sub is perfect but the soundbar sounds basically the same as my TV speakers - which is fine by me - my TV speakers are not that bad. But $250 is a little bit too much just to add a subwoofer. I have the Sub set at 0 and Bass set at 0 and it really kicks. Im in a small 450 sq ft apartment and anything above the 0 rocks the walls and floors - it really is too powerful for my space. I will be taking it back.
So Im not looking for something like a full blown home theater, I just would like to add some bass to the TV I have. Just to have the low rumbles and booms while watching tv shows, movies and games is all I am looking for but I think $250 is too much just for that.
I was looking into these subs....
