currently im sharing a pair of 5.1 logitech speakers between my xbox and my pc.

every time i switch device, i have to get under my desk, go through the jungle of cords and cables and manually switch to the other device. its fairly annoying as i can be switching device every 10 minutes or so.

do they sell switches that will allow me to switch between them? i dont want to use a splitter on its own, because ive read that it can blow my speakers up. so id need a splitter with a switch.

if they dont sell these off the market, or are easy to obtain, how can i make one? im not too great in this area, but im not that bad either and think that i could do something like this. id just need to know what id need to make one.

well if it were a normal 5.1 setup and AVR would work, but since its a logitech i am not sure.... the more expensive logitech setups have multiple inputs.... i am guessing yours is not.

is you setup all analog connections?

Something similar to this is what you may want to do.
