I don't recall if your monitor can decode component video. Many computer monitors require RGBHV. (I.E. RGB color space with both horizontal and vertical sync: a total of 5 signals.) In other words, an HDMI to VGA adapter.
At this point, all I can do is wish you lots of good luck.
Yes, I don't know why I need to have luck to connect a stereo system, but I guess perhaps the current audio and video equipment is well beyond the years when I use to play 33's and 45's while trying to learn to play a piano. I've played various musical instruments and have had many artist friends some of who eventually became professional musicians. I can remember the days when the Beatles were under much skepticism, people deciding whether to keep purchasing their albums and playing their music.
One of the subwoofer is 10" while the other is 12". Subwoofers are ok however I think the system needs some more mid range audio.
Years ago I think in the late 60's and 70's it wasn't all that uncommon for audio / music enthusiasts to a have ~6 foot floor speakers, some being around 4 foot wide x 6'+ feet. tall. In those days I remember 300+ watts amps and receivers were fairly common, much of the audio equipment was fairly large and heavy.
______ Nec LCD monitor
Many of my monitor video inputs are BNC. The NEC LCD3210 is actually an economy model / version monitor I think originally retailed from ~1,500.00 to over $3,000.00 However prices have come down. There are 1080p versions for sale on eBay as low as around ~$700.00 with HDCP, HDMI, etc.
LCD3210, doesn't have modern bells and whistles but is designed to last in a working environment, often installed business offices, hospitals, trains stations, air ports, etc. is considered to be a presentation monitor for use in both private and public environments. Very little plastic is used to build the monitor, any plastic used is heavy duty, not the cheap plastic used with many of the more current modern monitors. Uses a heavy duty metal encasement and frame, with built-in thermostatically controlled fans and good venting.
______ inputs & outputs
2 RGB 1 IN (DVI-D) To input digital RGB signals from a computer. * This connector does not support analog input.
3 RGB 2 IN (mini D-Sub 15 pin) To input analog RGB signals from a personal computer or other RGB equipment.
4 RGB 3 IN [R, G, B, H, V] (BNC) To input analog RGB signals from a computer or other RGB equipment.
This is also to connect equipment such as a DVD player and
HDTV laser disk player. A Sync-on-Green signal can be
connected to the G connector.
5 RGB OUT (mini D-Sub 15 pin) To output the signal from RGB 2 or 3.
6 DVD/HD IN (BNC) Connecting equipment such as a DVD player, HDTV device, or Laser disc player.
7 AUDIO IN 1, 2, 3 To input audio signal from external equipment such as a computer, VCR or DVD player.
8 AUDIO OUT To output the audio signal from the AUDIO IN 1, 2 and 3 jack.
9 VIDEO IN/OUT VIDEO IN connector (BNC and RCA): To input a composite video signal. BNC and RCA connectors are not available at the same time. (Use only one input).
VIDEO OUT connector (BNC): To output the composite video signal from the VIDEO IN connector.
S-VIDEO IN connector (DIN 4 pin): To input the S-video (Y/C separate signal). See page 26, S-VIDEO MODE SETTING.
10 EXTERNAL CONTROL (mini D-Sub 9 pin) Use when operating the LCD monitor from the RGB equipment like a computer.
11 EXTERNAL SPEAKER TERMINAL
To output the audio signal from AUDIO 1, 2 or 3 jack.
The firmware allows to change various audio and video settings plus select different resolutions, clock & clock phase frequencies, vertical and horizontal position & resolution settings, zoom modes, Gamma selection, Scan conversion (progressive / interlaced), Brightness, contrast, sharpness, black levels, color control, color temperature, etc. I suppose settings found with most modern monitors.
