okay, my old speakers blew, and i just bought a really expensive new set of speakers.
i got the klipsch 5.1 surround sound ones.
i don't have a 5 channel sound card, so only the two front speakers are playing. the two rear speakers, and the center speaker don't play at all.
the subwoofer connects to the computer for with three different cords - however, since mine is not a 5.1 sound card, i can only connect it with one cord.
all of the 5 speakers are connected to the subwoofer just fine.
anyway, my question is this: until i can buy a new 5 channel sound card, is there any way i can rig it so that the new speakers will all use the same one channel, so that i can have all 5 speakers playing at once, rather than just have the two front speakers playing?
I got this for Christmas 2 years ago.
It was like 50 bucks when Wal Mart has that screaming before christmas sale thing.
It just connects to my speaker hole thinggie.
It also connects to my DVD player.
And also to my television.
It blows me away and shit.
I had the GMX5.1 Klipsch speakers but when they were hooked up via nForce SoundStorm DIGITAL it would make a screeching sound if nothing was playing this was a hardware defect and they wouldn't exchange. Yet if hooked up in analog it wouldn't screech.
So I sold them on ebay and got a set of Klipsch 4.1 THX which hook up via analog. The reason I did this was the GMX line of speakers sub had no bass but the THX have more then I want so I was able to dial it down to my liking.
