I would like to use my polk audio rm6200 subwoofer with my computer alone, is this possible? I have a motherboard with a bass out port amongst other things. I have an MSI z87m Gaming https://us.msi.com/Motherboard/Z87M-GAMING.html motherboard. Is this at all possible? thanks in advance. I have enclosed an image of the subwoofers ports, as well as those on my computer.

Thanks in advance!!
 
The orange audio jack labeled CS-out is for a center channel and sub.
You need a cable that has a stereo 3.5mm mini plug at the PC end and two RCA plugs at the sub end.
Set the PC to 2,1. That should turn on the subwoofer output but not the center dhannel output of the orange jack.
Only one of the RCA plugs at the sub end will be active. Plug one into the LFE Input on the sub. If you used the wrong RCA it will not produce bass.
The low pass adjustment on the sub won't work but the volume control will. You can set the sub level from your PC or the sub.
