    Hi,

    This maybe off subject but the subwoofer I use on my PC is very similar to a regular amp and it does not have a headphone socket. I tend to use the PC for gaming and listen to cds and mp3s whilst playing but the TV is in the same room so I would like to rig up the PC with headphones.
    The Subwoofer is a Cambridge Soundworks system with 2 satelites
    and the 2 small speakers plug into the Sub using "crocodile connectors and bare wires, can I rig up a cable that had a headphone connector one end and 4 bare wire connectors at the other?
    Is there an easy way around this? Please Help.

    Tony

    Your sound card should have 2 outputs. Line out with your speakers plugged into it and headphones out. Plug the headphones in there and don't turn on the speakers!:)

    Hmmmm.... Just tried as you suggested but no joy, I only have onboard sound so no sound card. Switched off speakers plugged h/phones into all other sockets to no avail.
    Thanks for the suggestion, any other ideas?

    Tony........

    Yeah, and they work but I want to run the h/phones through the sub to benefit from the extra oomph that the box generates.

    Oh, i understand now. I apologise.

    Not knowing the exact specs of your kit doesnt help.....you could always get a little splitter connector thingy

    Cheers,
    I'll speak to the hifi store bods and see if I can buy a "splitter connector thinggie". Sounds like just the item I want.

    Many Thanks, Tony.....
