I checked your Sony soundbar system and it unfortunately only works with the wireless subwoofer which came with the unit. How long ago did you buy the system ?

Some soundbar system have an additional Analog subwoofer output where a different subwoofer can be plugged in. But your soundbar does not have it. Are you able to return it and buy something else ?
