Pix are not needed people...come on...........


are they passive or active?

active have an amp on board and must be plugged in to use
if passive, youll need an amp to drive them which is costly and not worth it.

but yea just feed a line from your audio card to the input of the speakers...make sure you set it up so that if your computer audio is turned up all the way, theres no way the audio amp will amp that so much that it will blow your windows out.......

The computer is the amp, so all he needs to do is solder a 1/8" jack onto the speakers, and then plug into the computer where his normal speakers go, Presto!

BTW, take it to GB&C next time that you have a problem that can't be solved by Icyhot or barrel rolls. We're much nicer over there


And, who's the is Aqua Dementia? I have half a mind to report him for spam, but I guess this is the Pit.

But really... there's no cookie. And if there was, you wouldn't get one.
