Solved! How to Connect Subwoofers AND Active Bookshelf Speakers to PC?


Apr 19, 2017
Picture of subwoofer:

I have been having trouble connecting my Edifier R1700BTs to an old subwoofer from my Logitech Z323s. I'm new to this kind of thing, but to my understanding the subwoofer is active because it has a power cable that I can plug into the wall, and thus should work with my R1700BTs.. right? The speakers themselves have a 3.5mm Sub out port, which I connected to my subwoofer using a 3.5mm to 2-Male RCA Adapter Audio Stereo Cable, but the subwoofer doesn't produce any sound even after connecting the subwoofer to the sub out port on the edifier speakers. I made sure to set the PC on 2.1 but nothing worked.

Then, I tried just plugging the 3.5mm jack into my PC's sub out jack, but that didn't work either.

I appreciate any help, Thank you!
