Since the BX5 don't have any output to chain in a Sub you can't go that route. Some, probably most, subwoofers have an output and a knob to adjust at which frequency to cut off. So you would go from your Modi -> Sub -> BX5. So if your sub has that, connect it in that order.

 

If your sub does not have any outputs, you would need to buy a splitter, which would mean you would run the same signal in parallel to both your speakers and sub.

 

With splitter, I mean something like this:
