I recently purchase
Plugged them right into my on-board audio and have been happy, at the same time I picked up
for a steal, it will be coming in the mail in just a few days, I got around to playing with the setup just a bit, and plugged up an old Sub from
The sub its self has plugs for both the left and right speakers as a 3.5mm jack, then an out to the computer in a 3.5mm jack. The M-40's hookup via a (red/white) 2xRCA to 3.5mm, so the way I have it plugged now is 2(2xRCA to 3.5mm) using only 1 of the RCA plugs for each speaker linking them to each the left and right speaker/plug on the sub.
It instantly sounds 100x better than before.
Now the question is I am ordering some 1/8in to 3.5mm to use from the speakers instead of the RCA to 3.5mm Will this give me better sound quality?
Should I be plugging already amped speakers into a sub with an amp?
Should I add a splitter to the sound card plug and run the speakers off of 1 of the splits and the amp individually off the other split?
Am I even close to being setup right? if not any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks again.Edited by atticus589 - 5/29/11 at 2:59pm
