  1. I have the Razer Nommo Chroma speakers. I want a subwoofer but Razer does not sell their own. Is it ok to mix and match brands without the audio being completely messed up?

    If you want a subwoofer from Razer you simply shouldnt buy the nommo chroma...

    I Have the Razer Leviathan and the subwoofer is pretty damn good, but I will upgrade to the Razer Nommo Pro with an even bigger Subwoofer. So don´t say that Razer isn´t selling Subwoofers :)
     
  3. What I'm saying is that I can't just buy a subwoofer individually, atleast from Razer. I have the Nommo chroma, not the Nommo pro. So I'm asking if I can buy a subwoofer just by itself even though I would have razer speakers with a different brand subwoofer

    As they mentioned above, I probably would've just held out to buy either the Leviathan (I have this one, and it's fantastic) or the Nommo Pro. However, since that's not really an option for you at this point I would imagine you can probably mix and match. I don't know if that could affect the sound quality, but perhaps someone with more sound experience than myself will be able to chime in.

    I dont know is this speaker have an extra otput to connect external sub if they have you can if not sorry but it;s not sposibble.
     
  6. There's a headphone port and an aux in port on them. Would either of those work?

    In general, a headphone out wouldn't output enough juice for a sub and would need something to amplify the signal. Of course, this would also depend on the subwoofer itself, so if attempting to use the headphone out in this fashion, research would need to be done. (I'm also talking about pro audio, so on the consumer level ... who knows?)

    Also, depending on the wiring in the speakers themselves, plugging something into the headphone jack could disable the actual speakers, so you would get audio going to the plugged-in subwoofer, but nothing coming out of the Nommos themselves. You should probably just test this on your speakers with some headphones. If you plug them in and get nothing out of the speakers themselves, then using the headphone jack for a sub won't work for you.

    If going the mix-and match route, the simplest thing in your scenario might be to see if you can output to both USB and your headphone jack. Possibly some third-party software for your OS that would allow this?

    In this case no this is only one way signal ;/ Another way is connecting speakers to sub but this is also imposible becose of usb connector the is with mixer or external sound card you can try to find with usb but i think this will allow you only connect headset via usb to send one way audio signal.
