And you can see, they are basic 2 speakers with 1 subwoofer. There is ONLY ONE (1) green 3.5mm audio jack that is supposed to plug into the PC.
I have the Xonar Essence STX audio card from ASUS. I thought logically the speakers (green 3.5mm cable) would logically plug into the "Headphone out port" on the sound card, but after reading the .pdf instructions/users manual, they CLEARLY state "DO NOT PLUG SPEAKERS INTO THE HEADPHONE OUT PORT!"
Now, the first two ports are the "Front right out" and "front left out" and these doesn't seem applicable to me, since those are for 2.1 speakers that have a white & red cable when I only have ONE Green 3.5mm cable.
I simply am using the speakers right now (green 3.5 mm cable ) plugged into the front Audio 3.5mm cable of my PC case at the moment, but I'm trying to make sure I'm not going to cause any damage.
Can someone please tell me where to plug in these speakers????
Thanks dude, it worked perfectly. I didn't even know I had that y cable.
I had it plugged into the front audio panel (head phone icon) from the speak 3.5mm green cable on my case.
I did this until you responded and told me the right way to do it. You think I could have caused any damage doing that, and not using the y-cable?
*btw, I have the front audio cable plugged into my ASus xonar STX card, so even though its the 3.5mm jack on the front of my PC case its actually connected to my ASUS sound card and NOT the integrated mobo sound.
OP, if you are not going to use the onboard audio from the computer be sure to go into BIOS and disable the onboard audio. Otherwise there will be some conflict with the drivers.
Man that's some dirt cheap speakers. I didn't know Logitech makes a $30 speakers like that. Save up some money and pickup a pair of Audioengine A2 speakers. They are audiophile grade speakers for stellar sound. Perfect for little desktop audio use.
