    as long as the sub has a mono rca on back (usually have 2, but one will be marked mono as well)and adjusts for freq and output any will do. I got a nice Canton one on the bay of evil for a good price. Sevenoaks audio do the q acoustics off amazon. its a 50 watt amp inside. comes with a small remote which you could easily clone to a big one.. something I might do next. controls vol,mute, source and on off selector. also has aptx bluetooth which is damn good.

    I think I've got it sorted now, it's not particularly hi tech but it works, I'm using the scart output on the tv to the 2.1 amp, the passive sub only sounds distorted when I am close to it, for the cost of the little amp and recying some old speakers it does the job nicely. And as a result of the rejig I now have a little Fiio optical DAC to try on my squeezebox touch to see if that brings an improvement.
