I'm looking to hook my Polk audio powered subwoofer to my Star Wars...just looking for the best way.

Just ordered this today to hook the PSW-10 to my SWLE (because even the Flipper Fidelity speakers didn't rumble enough for me!).

That's the best way to hook it up, I have them in all my games with powered subs.

It hooks up the same way as on any other game, spike or non-spike. clips directly to cabinet woofer.

I know that's how a lot do it, but I also know if you hook it up wrong (on the powered sub side), the current can actually damage the pins boards. Just being gun-shy with a new pin, and a new system (spike 2).

He actually lost me on the word "clips." As a general rule, I don't like to clip anything to anything...you're asking for a short somewhere. Solder or bust, baby!

Many people don't know how to solder and can do a lot of damage with an iron, especially in a tight spot. Yes, soldering, if done right, is more secure, but the risk of short with clips can be just as high or low as soldering. Using clips to hook up a sub is very safe and the spacing of the lugs is wide. The positive lug is usually labeled with a "+" or a red dot and typically is the lug on the right of the speaker. I can look on my sw pro tonight to confirm.
