I currently run a pair of Q acoustics 3020(passive) speakers with a Audioengine N22 Desktop Amp. Im looking to get a new subwoofer under 300$ Will i be able to run a powered subwoofer(12inch) with this setup or do i need to get a power amp or something. Thanks!
Since the sound coming from a sub-woofer is generally omni-directional it is common to just have 1 sub in a system. Unlike tweeters and mid-range speakers that have a sweet spot for listening in stereo. All 2 subs will do for you is to make your system louder in the low frequencies, which may drown out the higher frequencies.
