    Hi guys! Right... I sold a pair of rokit 5's to a friend, he's bought the 10s sub. All he wants to do is connect his iPod/iPhone iPhone in to it. I'm not overly sure how this would be done.... some sort of mixer or crazy cable .... 3x Xlr to 3.5mm jack!?!???!!! Any help would be appreciated!!

    Put it through some old amplifier or find a adapter 3,5mm to rca? Then with rca to xlr? Also what the fuck's the point?

    there is a phono input on the back of the sub. So just a standard Phono to 3.5mm jack will suffice

    Your rockits are active speakers I guess and the sub too(?).

    You need a Crossover (I hope this is the right translation --> "Frequenzweiche" in German). Look for the "Behringer CX2310 SuperX Pro" which got 2 XLR Stereo Outs (for the Rockits) and 1 XLR Subwoofer output. This is the cheapest I've found (~80 €).

    But don't take that as "the answer"... I'm not really into this stuff and I could be wrong as f**k right now.
