Looking for small powered subs with a signal pass through output

Anything to compare an Edifier T5 to? I am running passive speakers, an amp, and a headphones amp/preamp at my desk. Only one output on the preamp (other than the headphones out) so to incorporate a sub I need something that can take a preamp output, do its thing, but also pass the original signal on to the amp. I have a big SVS SB-1000 Pro on my main setup in the living room, but that's overkill for what I want at the computer for games and occassional music. Most of the budget options I am finding do not pass the signal back out. What would you suggest?

Of course, the better option would be to use the SVS SB-1000 Pro with the computer and buy an even bigger sub for your main system. :D

I have an Emotiva Airmotiv SE8 8" sub in that exact scenario. Has Line In and Line Out (w/HPF). Unfortunately, it's not made any more and the current model (XS8) only has Line In, but the SE8 is worth looking for used.
