Amplifier Answered

Hi all, 

I got two 3-way-speakers (8ohm) from my uncle, but I don't have an amplifier. I wanted to use these speakers as audio-monitors for my pc. Is it possible to make an (easy) amplifier-circuit for this use? And do I need one or two circuits (1 circuit-1 speaker / 1 circuit-2 speakers)?

Thanks for helping me out!

On my speakers I've found some additional information:
- Rated Output Power: 30 Watt - 50 Watt (50 is RMS I guess)
- Impedance: 8 Ohm

Can anybody help me searching a circuit? This will be the first time I make one, so I think it's safer not to search it out all alone ;)

See what your speakers are rated at (how much power/watts max RMS that they can handle). You can then search for an audio amplifier circuit based on that. Look up basic speaker cabinet design and figure out if you will be hooking them up in series or parallel. Good luck.
