    Each one of those 3.5mm plugs carry 2 channels.

    Method 1 (using the composition rca out's):
    Get (2) mono rca to dual rca cords.
    This will give your two Lefts and two rights... front and back (4 channels)

    You'll also have to set up one of those 3.5 as center/sub to send to the sub.

    Method 2a (use the 6 channel sound 3.5mm):
    You have to use the software with the computer to determine what each of these 3.5mm hook-ups do (line in/mic, center/sub, right/left, rear right/rear left)

    If you need a line in then that leaves you with two 3.5mm's left to program. You would probably do a 3.1 setup which means the hookup is programmed to be right and left, the other would be center and sub.

    You can take the front channel signal and use a 3.5mm to rca cord. That will give you a right and left channel. You can then take a mono rca to dual rca cord to turn your right rca to two rca's and your left rca to two lefts rca's. Now you got 4 channel that you can send to your amp.

    Now take the center/sub 3.5mm and send that to the sub.

    Method 2b (if you don't need a line in)
    Use the software to setup a 4.1 system. One 3.5mm will be center/sub, another front left/front left, and the last rear right/ rear left.

    Use 3.5mm to rca cord and send the appropriate channels to the amp

      Ok, thanks

      I think I need the MIC for my handsfree to phone. Then I has to go for a motherboard that more channels, or a USB soundcard that support more channels.


      But another concern, how about the voltage from the PC soundcard? Is there plenty to supply the amps?

        to answer you last question, it depends on the motherboard, but most have at least enough voltage for adequate sound output...

        reguarding both threads-- are you interested in running a active 3 way setup? or just a 3way setup?

        the connections, and requirements for either would be drastically different-- djvillars method should work for most setups, but it depends on the software that the computer includes to send the audio to different speakers...

          I prefer active 3 way setup, then I can adjust everything / anything.
          Is more difficult then to do this?

            then you would need to look into trying 2 programs-- either Audio Mulch, or Console. both programs have their own positives and negatives, but so far, i have been liking audio mulch over console, because it is a little more programable for what i want to do...

            both programs are vst hosts that would allow you to manipulate the audio almost any way you want with vst plugins(www.kvraudio.com has a lot of free ones that work great.)


            i know that this can be a little overwhelming at first, but there is a great wiki on these boards explaing vst host/plugins, and how they work, otherwise, if you have any problems, just post your questions, and someone can try to help you set it up.

                using a couple of different programs, you can use almost any audio card you want.

                i know it doesn't help you much, but i have not heard/read of any specific audio card in any price range that could not be controlled at all.

                my only recomendation would be to stay away from Creative brand sound cards, as they seem to have odd driver issues with certain setups that can take months to resolve, and have hibernation issues.

                  Thread also moved. These threads are not general hardware discussion questions, they are newbie questions and need to be addressed here.

                  @RS4, English sounds like it may not be your first language, so i'm just trying to help you out here.

                  Soundman and djvillar, in the future please help me out by reporting dupe threads and the like... there's a lot of stuff to mod around here and we miss a bunch of it.

                  Thanks guys, carry on...
