two speakers + sub into audio interface

Hey, I'll get straight to the point. I've got a RME Babyface interface which has two xlr outputs for sound, um.. Currently I don't own any monitors but what am I supposed to do if I want two monitors + a sub, I mean, it'd be quite unpractical to have a pair of 8040s or 8050s in my small room when I'm sitting so close to them so a sub + 8020 or 8030 could be required..

But as the interface is 2.0, how would I go about using a sub as well?

I'm sorry if I'm unclear.. I could try to clarify more if there's trouble understanding what I mean.

You would cable the interface to the sub, then the sub goes to the satellite's (monitors) with a different set of cables so four xlr cables in all. Does that help.
