Good Questions: Traditional Speakers as Computer Speakers?

Dear Unplggd,

Can you convert conventional speakers into computer speakers? How?


Got a question you need help with? E-mail us your problem, preferably with a photo, and we’ll post your question here.

You most definitely can rid your home of those ugly plastic computer speakers. Depending on what type of wiring your speakers have, you’ll need a Y-Cable that will allow you to connect two speakers to your headphone jack. If your speakers have standard RCA connectors, you’ll need this cable. If they don’t have connectors, you’ll need an adapter to connect the wires, like this, as well.

We’re no audiophiles, so we don’t know the effect on sound quality, but it will work. Anyone out there have some advice for Maddux?
