Mod salvaged Altec Lansing ADA885 Subwoofer to work by itself?

\015 I salvaged this HUGE subwoofer, minus speakers, and would like to hook it up to my Creative 7.1 speaker system, but I do believe the volume and power control were on one of the satellite speakers. Is there anyway to short something or wire it in the subwoofer to make it think the power is on, and thus use the volume control on my 7.1 system to change the volume?\015
