Spring Clip to 3.5mm adapter?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok, I have a 400W 2.1 stereo system, with input for left and right audio. (composite). I use a 3.5mm to composite adapter cable, so I can plug my computer into the stereo system.

On the backside, I have a spring clip that goes to holds bare wires going to my speakers.





Now, is there any way to cut out the middle man (my stereo system)?

Is there some kind of adapter that has input for composite audio and output for bare wires? I could also put banana plugs on the wires, if that would help.

The middle man (the stereo) is required to amplify the signal from the PC and send it to the speakers.

You cannot connect the speakers directly to the soundcard.

Just so you are aware, if you mean;



then it's RCA connectors and not composite (which is a video cable)

Right, sorry about that. I was going to call them TRS, but I wasn't sure.

Anyways, can't I get a smaller amp? That's what I was asking before. I don't need the giant system if I could have a router sized box doing the same thing.

EDIT: Now I see that I said adapter, which isn't what I meant.
