    Well i just picked up a nice JL audio subwoofer today for 10bucks.
    So i decided that i might use it on my PC. I figured that ill need an amplifier, and something to plug it into the sound card.

    Anyone know exactly i can take this 8ohm sub and use it for my pc?

    I don't know what a JL subwoofer is; but, unless it has it's own power supply, there will not be enough power from your computer's sound card to drive it.

    Here is a post with some relevant info. It's for a home stereo, not a computer. If your going to do this, just be prepared to loose your computer system if you do things incorrectly. I hope your willing to take the chance.
