The .1 on the AV system is the dedicated subwoofer (LFE channel) and require some sort of amplification (powered sub). When the system is setup correctly, all the low frequency sound from all channels are directed to the LFE channel. This setup eliminates the need for full range speakers on a typical setup. That does not mean that you cannot use full range speakers at all. By using your Jamo in conjunction with the passive subwoofer you are talking about, you are building some sort of a full range front speaker system except they are on separate enclosures. The Jamo will produce the high and the sub, the low. It might sound good or bad and only you can tell which one. Also, depending on your crossover setting you have selected on your receiver and speaker size (Large/Small), you might not hear anything coming out of your old sub. You should try it both ways, with the old sub and without it. The new powered sub might be all you need.
