    It should since the Mini has a separate Audio in and Audio out. Why not try it out and let us know for sure?

    Nope It's a headphones jack and it shuts down the USB audio. Is there a setting to change that I wonder?

    I forgot that it was also a headphone jack. I don't think there's a way to stop it from shutting down the speakers when you plug something in. Possibly a way to use your sub-woofer is to attach an external USB sound card. Here's an example of one that should work.
