Default HOW to add a "true" powered sub to Bose Life Style 28 III

Have an old Bose Lifestyle 28 5.1 with the Acoustimass Module.

Is there a way I can add an additional powered sub to this system??

Not really.

I tried it once by going inside and tapping off of the woofer speaker wires. It worked, but not great.

Yea, I kinda figured that would be the case....

What would be a comparable or better system I could use that won't break my bank!?!

I have really nice sub that I'm not using anymore and it would probably sound really good.

Ive had the Bose system for a long time, it works perfectly, I would just like a little more bass.

suggestions???

I suggest you get a different receiver. I've bought a couple on ebay that have the DVD/CD players like the Bose. Used they are very cheap:

Now if you want a new one, you can get them for under $200 and then add a Blu-Ray player for another $100 or so. You don't need a huge amount of power for the Bose cube speakers, so any of these from Wal-Mart would work just as well as your current system for the Bose cubes with the added bass of your sub: https://www.walmart.com/search/?quer...cet=brand:Pyle
