How To Set Up Two Sets of Speakers from Two Sources in One PC

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have two sets of 2 speakers. Both sets have their own source. One set is connected to a small amplifier and the other has its own source built into the speaker. How should I connect both of these sets of speakers to my PC? I have a picture of my motherboard's back end.

So they play together?

Or so you can select which one you would like audio from?

Are you trying to set up surround sound? Or do you want the same content from both?

If surround sound, connect the front ones to the green jack and the rear ones to the black jack.

If you want the same signal going to both speakers, use a splitter and connect it to the green jack.

Go to Control Panel > Sound. Click "Speakers" and click "Configure." Choose "Quadraphonic" (if you don't have a separate subwoofer). You can also enable the "Speaker Fill" enhancement to upmix stereo sources to surround.

Did you test the speakers by clicking on them in the dialog?

Try plugging into the orange jack instead of the black one. Your sound card may be configured differently.

The splitter will work, but it won't give accurate surround sound.
