Questions regarding pc speakers/house speakers
 
Is there any way that I can convert pc speakers into stereo speakers? My receiver won't take pc speakers.:thumbdwn:

Are you talking analogue PC speakers? If so there are 3.5MM to RCA cables.

Just a littttttle more specific.

3.5 MM analogue jacks? Optical out? How are they connecting to the PC right now? What is the exact model number? What are you trying to hook it up to?

Cut the wires coming off the individual speakers, splice some more speaker wire to them if they need to be longer and plug them into your receiver.

I thought about doing that, but what should I do about the two connections the receiver is looking for? It looks more like a negative/positive connections...


And Q, I wish to goodness that there was an optical out on the speakers. It would make life a little more easier...

Actually it would be optical in on the speakers.
Each speaker should have 2 wires running to them.

Ick...don't do this, not only will it sound like crap but you'll probably fry some wires, or worse, damage your receiver.

PC speakers are meant for line level audio - highly susceptible to crosstalk and other interference if not shielded - which they aren't. This is one reason I hate PC speakers and haven't used them for over a decade.

But anyways, line level audio implies that there isn't going to be much power to it. Your typical receiver on the other hand will be pumping out upwards of 50-100 watts per channel, depending on the receiver and on the volume. I wouldn't plug any wire thinner than 20 gauge into that, and I think your typical pc speaker is somewhere around 22-24 gauge.

Besides, PC speaker wiring won't work. PC speakers use the same wiring as headphones: one ground wire per two channels. Real speakers use one ground wire per channel.
