Pls help if possible

post #1 of 5

Hey everyone. I have a set of non computer speakers makeshifted into my computer using a red/white cord that most game consoles use ( they also have a yellow for video just incase u didnt know what i was talking about). I wasn't completely satisfied with how loud the volume can get to even with all the volumes on my computer setting's all the way up. I was wondering if there was an alternative way to either make the computer master volume higher, or if there was just a different way i could get these things louder. Thanks

you need an amp dude. You got those things going striahgt from the speakers to the computer through those rigged up cables??? If so you got no power going to them... You need to go get an amp. If you want something cheap go to walmart or even a pawn shop and get the jankiest reciever they got that has the inputs you need, pickup a headphone to red/white adapter cable and you're ready to rock and roll
