    Many people, many subs. Too many to summarize here. The forums' search engine isn't perfect, but it's a huge help for things like this. Search on "subwoofer" in the Boom forum and you get this: http://forums.slimdevices.com/search...archid=4274030

    You may also want to search on "sub-woofer" or just "sub".

    It is indeed a sub-out (or even a pre out if you want to use it as a receiver), I've used it with an active logitech sub (from a Z4 2.1 setup), and it does help a bit...but one is rather urinating in a stiff breeze!

    However if you really want to improve the sound IMHO, take the pre out to an amp and add some proper speakers

    Yeah - I use the Headphone/LINE OUT of the Boom to drive a sub permanently - in my case it's a cheap Creative computer sub, but it works in my kitchen.
    There's a wide variety of inexpensive subs that could be used..

    I am also driving a sub (Polk Audio) from my Boom, and it makes quite a difference...

    I wish I could also have line-in at the same time so I can hook up my iPod nano from time-to-time...but it's just a low "want"...

    Line In and Line Out are two separate inputs, they cannot be used at the same time?

    Squeezebox Boom FAQ

    > Plug-in is properly installed.

    How do you know? Anything particular in the server.log file?
