Default 2 Sets of speakers -> 1 output -> Surround Sound

So I have 2 sets of logitech speakers. They're only like $40 ones, probably even cheaper. For you sound guru's is there a splitter or something I can use for this?

You're not going to have surround sound using a splitter. You're better off purchasing a 2.1 system.

Well, I don't want true surround sound, I just want loud music coming from all angles =)

Try this.

Make sure it splits the source, not the channel.

Thanks for the link. It looks promising. Like always, the only problem I see is cable management, but with time the idea should come to me.

I got a set of the Altec Lansing speakers from Wally World and they rock the house. Better bass and voice range than most speakers in that price range. Has separate bass, treble, and master volume. I think I gave 30 dollars for the set. I was really impressed. Bought another set and use those on the back channels. Now a car wreck sounds like a car wreck. And Queen sounds like a concert. Course my rig has 8.1 surround. And yes even though I'm the manager here, I have been asked to turn it down.

Oh ok,In the realtek control panel if you change your config to 4.1 channel,the green one is set to front speakers,and either the orange plug or the black plug is set to rear speakers,you just plug one set in green and the other set into orange/black
