What I did was I took a regular ol'e 250W amplifier, and then I took my stereo speakers which were like 2 15" subs, 3 high range woofers and 2 little monitor speakers and then I made a connector for my PC. I hooked it up to my PC thru the amplifier and that rocked! It was the best sound I have ever heard, and it was just on a regular AC'97 Codec, lol. That was great, I had to eventually take it down tho due to complaints that it was too loud and shaking stuff. Give it a try. I might hook it up again, I hope it sounds better with a new sound card. And maybe this time I will give my set of four new 18" subwoofers a try.
