Just wondering if many people here have had much experience with Chromecast Audio? My question specifically is can you plug one directly into a powered subwoofer and have it stream to it as part of a group? Looking at grabbing some bookshelf speakers and maybe adding some extra oomph via a subwoofer in the future if needed and thought this would be a tidy solution if the sub was away from the speakers themselves.

Haven't found much info on this so maybe a dumb question haha.

Cheers.

I have done it with another brand of streamer, but not a Chromecast...

 

In theory a powered subwoofer with a variable crossover etc should allow it to work.

Sync will not be good enough for that to work IMO.

I would of thought the sync would be good otherwise grouping any amount of speakers would be horrible wouldn't it? Or are subs different?

They are horrible if they are in the same room. sounds like up to 100ms varience, and it changes when you stop and restart playback.
