I'm wanting to set up a speaker system (I believe I still have the R, L, and Center surround speakers, though not sure) for my computer. I have for sure two large Dolby Golds. I've never set up non-computer ready speakers for my computer and am really wanting to use these for that purpose. Is it possible? What do I need to do it? ... And what's the best deal for the parts I need? (an estimated over all cost would be great too!) Thanks!
I searched Google for "Dolby Gold speakers" and got nuthin'.
But, there are two main types of speakers you are dealing with. Powered, with an amp built in, or "passive" without an amp. Xander is right, that if they are unpowered (passive) then you will need a separate amp. Most PC speakers are powered, or have a powered sub to connect to.
