    I need a subwoofer. Trust me I do. Or, at least I think I do. I _always_
    overbass it.

    Maybe I need those trap thingies and all that. You will all advise me. I'm in a
    square room that doubles as my office. I can't get too crazy.

    But the real question I have is with the M-Audio SBX thingie...
    (http://www.m-audio.com/index.php?do=products.focus&ID=bc9c51bba50131ebde66335d989757a4)

    I take it this _replaces_ my power amp entirely, and I hook my monitors to _it_,
    and the Alesis power amp goes away. Or could be "re-purposed".

    It looks to me like your signal comes out of the mixer, goes to this
    subwoofer, where an internal crossover splits off the lows and sends them to
    its internal amplifier, and then to its speaker. Meanwhile, the rest of the
    signal (minus the lows) come out of the subwoofer cabinet (still at line
    level) and continue on to your current amplifier. Now it won't have to work
    as hard because it won't be amplifying the lows anymore, as that is taken
    care of by the subwoofer. Similarly, your speakers will also be working
    better at the range they are best at, since they won't have to worry about
    the extreme lows either.
    So, the answer is that it does not replace your current amp, it augments it.
