I don't know how the low pass circuits work in the Boom.

If I set the rear output jack to subwoofer, do you think you could use a set of computer speakers with powered subwoofer to the jack?

There's a player setting (headphones/subwoofer) to set the line out to be either full-range or just bass. For your purpose, set to headphones.
The built-in speakers will sound better though...

Tried it out with a $20 speaker system with a 4" sub. It seems to work. There is nothing out of L and R speakers, but the sub is working. It does enhance the Boom's audio!

I first hooked mine to a Velodyne VA907. Set the output to sub and everyone thought the larger speakers in the room were playing.

I agree that the built-ins won't be beat (due to their very sophisticated equalization.)
