    So, I would use the green port on my motherboard (ignoring the sub out port), --> sub input --> sub output --> speakers.

    If I do that, will I have to power my sub every time, as well as power my speakers, to hear output? Or can I still hear sounds if I power on my speakers, but not my subs?
    Yeah green port -> to sub -> to speakers should work. Also most powered subwoofers that I have used have auto power on and off from signal input. Most the time they are setup in areas that are not easy to get to the power switch. I would hate to have to climb under my desk every time I want to use my sub LOL. So I would think you would be alright going to the sub first then to the speakers.

    How do I connect it to a SVS SB-2000 Pro subwoofer?

    I tried connecting a RCA cable from the orange port on the on-board sound card, to the LFE port on the woofer.

    Two problems.

    One is that the cable doesn't stay firmly into the orange port.

    The other is that the subwoofer makes a loud hum.

    I also currently have a 3.5mm to red/white RCA cable going from the green port on the sound card, to my powered speakers.

    Here is the manual for the motherboard:

    I believe you need a 75-Ohm cable because it is a coax connection. and you need to turn the volume down in windows before connecting so you don't blow the house down by accident. Also, you need to keep in mind that the sub connection on the MB is also carrying the center channel. You need to get a splitter. they do sell 3.5mm to two RCA cables.
