Subs that power passive speakers?

    Are there any Subs out there that will power my passive NS10s? Any recommendations? Or am I better off going for a passive Sub and amp?

    If you must, you can use an active sub and take the LR outputs to a power amp which drives your NS10s.

    However, you need to be really careful about matching your sub to the main monitors if you want a consistent sound. It's too easy to get a mix that you think sounds good but won't translate well to other setups. There have been some recent threads about this on RO.

    I do not know of any studio sub with built in amps for a third parties monitors. It would not make any sense to me.
