you may need a pre-amp to power them too...

I may be wrong - leads would need a 3.5mm jack plug soldered on then the problem of getting stereo

of our forum - it should be in the Helproom, and I'm moving it now.

These speakers are not designed to be connected to a PC - they need to be fed by an amplifier.

The PC output is designed to be fed into an amplifier (that's why PC speakers have power leads - because they have amplifiers inside them.)

Another thing - the speakers will not be magnetically shielded (PC speakers are). This means if you place the Aiwas near to a CRT monitor they will badly affect the display.
