I have this home theater in a box. http://store.sony.com/3d-blu-ray-home-theater-system-zid27-BDVN7100W/cat-27-catid-All-Home-Theater-Systems

 

The home theater in a box includes this subwoofer:
  • Subwoofer (Reference): 200W
  • Input Terminal : Push Type
  • Woofer unit : 180mm
  • Speaker Unit : 1 unit
  • Active/Passive : Passive
  • Rated impedance : 6 ohms
  • Enclosure Type (Bass Reflex/Acoustic suspension/Passive radiator/others) : Bass Reflex

The subwoofer's inputs are speaker wire and they look EXACTLY like this (sorry to steal the pic from another member, this is the best example I could find):

Normally, you would only run 1 subwoofer with this home theater in a box, and that is what I'm currently doing.

But I recently got another one of these subwoofers.

So I have 2 of the exact same subwoofers.

I would like to run both to increase the bass and spread it out across the room.

I understand that these are passive subwoofers and that the Sony Blu-Ray/Amp/Receiver won't be able to power both.

 

So how do I make it power both?

Exactly what should I buy (please link me to the product) to make both of these passive subs run off of the home theater in a box?

(I have searched subwoofer amplifiers but I am overwhelmed by the results. I need to know exactly what to buy given the power, impedance, and single red/black speaker wire inputs).

YOUR HELP IS APPRECIATED!

Buy this:

Then, just connect a second set of speaker wires from the sub out on the "receiver" to the high level speaker wire inputs on the back of the Dayton. Then, run another speaker wire from the speaker wire outputs on the back of the Dayton to the second sub. You may have to play with the settings to get it to blend well, but this should get you what you want without too much cost.

The receiver uses a proprietary connection, but the other end of the wire (the part that connects to the sub) is normal red/black speaker wire.  I don't want to try to squeeze more wires into the proprietary connection.  Can I run the normal end of the speaker wire directly into an amplifier, and then connect BOTH subs to the amplifier?  If so, which amplifier will let me do that? (please link to product)
