    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
      Cheers Will

        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..
        You want to see the signal path BEFORE it gets onto a CD/vinyl...it ain't what you'd call minimal...

          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?

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

                  did FAQ URL change?

                  Is the current Boom FAQ page located at https://wiki.slimdevices.com/index.p..._Boom_FAQ.html rather than at https://wiki.slimdevices.com/index.php/Boom_FAQ (as noted at beginning of this pinned thread)?

                      Can't add any Fovorite on MySB.com? Or just a particular stream?

                      How are you trying to add it? Web remote control or cut & paste a URL? If the later, post that URL in here.
