    First of all, I appreciate any and all help provided.

    Alright, here's my issue. I'm on a MacBook Pro 15", OS X 10.9.4. I recently purchased the Palo Alto Cubik HD speakers and a Creative T3150 Wireless Speaker system (includes a subwoofer). The Cubik HD's use a USB as their input, and the subwoofer uses an AUX cable as its input. Is it possible for me to have the Cubik HD speakers connected to my computer as well as the subwoofer (through either bluetooth or the headphone jack) at the same time? I've already tried setting up an Aggregate Device through Audio MIDI Setup, here's what I tried... Perhaps this is where I'm having my problem?


    Here's a picture of all the inputs of the Cubik HD speakers.

    Here are the specs for the Creative T3150 speakers & subwoofer:
    2.1 system
    Satellite: 75.0 x 150.0 x 90.0 mm (2.95 x 5.91 x 3.54 inches)
    Subwoofer: 184.0 x 225.0 x 190.0 mm (7.24 x 8.86 x 7.48 inches)
    Satellite: 2 x 319g (2 x 11.3oz)
    Subwoofer: 1.8kg (3.97lbs)
    Bluetooth® Version
    Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR (Enhanced Data Rate)
    Bluetooth® Profile
    A2DP (Wireless Stereo Bluetooth)
    Supported Codecs

    So would the Cubik's still be connected by USB, or would I have to basically connect everything to my computer's AUX in with a splitter? Which of the devices would be plugged directly into my computer's AUX input?

    The splitter should be connected to the 3.5 mm output of your computer. Then use two 3.5mm to 3.5mm cables to connect from the splitter females to the 3.5mm inputs of subwoofer and Cubik's.

    Just a question..a bit off topic I guess. How do you like Cubik's? Are they performing good when connected through USB?

    I love the Cubiks! They have super crisp sound (not a lot of bass) and I got them discounted from for like $40 or something. Very aesthetic too. The USB connection must be related to the quality of sound.
