Interface with sub out?

Why is this so hard to find?

I had an m audio fast track that had this, now I look and I can't find a single basic interface with outs for monitors and a sub.

Suggestions?

My suggestion would be to just take the audio out from whatever interface you choose, and run that into a sub, and run your speakers off of the sub. This way, you have nearly unlimited options, rather than looking for such a rare feature...which I imagine is most likely found on less professional gear.

I use powered KRK Rokit 5 near field-monitors, and the company makes a KRK 10S sub-woofer. I don't have the sub, but I've been thinking about getting one.

Here's a typical configuration...

Yeah but the thing is, my subwoofer doesn't have outputs like this, I would need a seperate connection because you can't run the audio back out of the sub. It's not the greatest sub but it provides plenty of bass for my needs

And the cost of a studio subwoofer is simply out of my price range, they are ~400+ dollars

Never heard of an audio interface with a subwoofer port. Wouldn't make sense - not only would you need to put crossover circuitry in the interface, you'd be limiting the use of a general purpose port. As mentioned above, this is usually handled by a crossover built into the sub. A cheaper option would be this crossover thingy from Behringer.

Yeah $400 is a bit much if on a budget, so that thing above will work then

This just reminded me, I have this Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 system laying around somewhere (?), so before I spring for a KRK sub, I may want to try the Klipsh sub out 1st.
