..what make laptop? What connections for audio does it have ?

What make and model sub and what type of cable does that have?

Do you already have speakers connected to your laptop? I'd be surprised if you can just plug a sub in.

the sub is: Accoustic solutions model AS133. its a pretty bog standard sub, with two aux connections on the back which, at the mo, goes to the back of the dvd player, to atwo down mix audio terminals. is that enough info? not so good with tech!!!

What laptop?
What connections do you have on the laptop for audio?
Do you already have any external speakers connected to laptop?

does the sub have the white and red plugs? if so you can get this wire which connects to your headphone socket of laptop and then links to the red white ports of sub and you can play it throught there.

wouldn't that mean that ALL sound then went through sub...i.e. even treble etc. would go through sub?
