Question about Speakers & Subwoofers
Recently bought LG 2.1 Home theatre J10 and want to use it to run existing multi room speaker switch. LG speaker cable out is round two pronged and speaker switch in is the standard 2 wire slot. Are there adapters out there. Is the LG speaker cable proprietary?
please bring lubricat contact cleaner and apply the spray in the socket where you put your mic and insert mic jack in and out many times.

You cannot use this system with one that does not have a Subwoofer or LFE (Low Frequency Effect) output. Unfortunately, this sub doesn't have a line-level (speaker wire) input. Sorry.

You will need a separate stereo amplifier for the 901's to accommodate the need for the Active EQ. There is no way to separate your receiver's front L&R channel preamplifiers from their amplifiers.
I run a Carver AV-406 (5-channel amp) for my 901's in Front, 2 Subwoofers and the Rear Surround channel, with the Active EQ between the receiver and the 901's amp channels. My receiver controls everything and just drives the Center and Surrounds. You would probably just get a nice 2-channel amplier for the 901's. If your receiver requires a powered Subwoofer so you would need another amplifier channel for that, too. Therefore, you might look around for a powerful 3- or 4-channel amplifier so you could drive the Sub, too.
Modest amps would work but at very loud volumes may go into clipping, which is bad for any speaker. I'm using only 100W for mine and it has plenty of steam for the 901's.
For connection I would run a pair of RCA cables from the Front L&R Audio Line OUT to the Active EQ's Line IN; then the EQ's Line OUT to a separate amp's Line IN. Attach the 901's to the new amp, run through the receiver's setup procedures for volume, etc and you're done.
Not what you might want to hear but 901's have special requirements. I've had mine for 25 years and have no regrets.
A separate subwoofer channel on the amp could be used. Just run a single RCA channel from Sub OUT to one available channel IN on the amp and attach the subwoofer to it. Two would work, also. That's what I do. You could use a 1-2 RCA splitter to feed two available channels on a 4-channel amp. The iterations are many. Have fun.
