Computer 5.1 & Sub Setup.

Needing a little more than the promedias I put together a sound system for my computer (Limited budget), however; I have a question on the sub setup.

My powered sub (JBL) suggests using a preamp for the front L-R into the sub, then the L-R output from the sub to the L-R in on the HT Amp. The sub has both Low-Pass & High-Pass crossover adjustments. Would this be the best way?

Or would it be better to just plug my computers 5.1 to the amp and just use Sub Pre-out. Here is a little more info on my system.

PC - Sound Card 1 (5.1) - Soundblaster Audigy Plat. (Connected to 5.1 in connectors on Amp.

Sound Card 2 (L-R) - M-Audio Audiophile 2496 (Connected to CD on amp.

Amp - Pioneer VSX-D509 (Programmable internal Crossover)

Sub - JBL PSW-D11

Spkrs - Quintets (5) One for each channel. I did buy an actual center speaker, but it was too big for my desk so I replaced the Bose center in my HT system.
