Adapting powered pc speakers to hi fi speakers Answered

Adapting powered pc speakers to hi fi speakers - New!
by JayWalkerLeo - 10/21/09 9:16 AM

Does anyone know if it is possible to take the power unit out of a set of powered pc speakers and put it  into a set of basic hi-fi speakers. The reason is the left speaker of the pc set does not work properly but all the amp bits work. 

I have a pair of 20 (10+10) watt hi-fi speakers nothing special at all, but I wanted to know if i could swap the amp bits with all the cables from the pc set to the hi-fi pair without too many adverse affects.

Any help or advice is most welcome

Yep, go for it!

my borrowed pc external speakers are lousyy, , but how can i make a new setup/ basically how do i add the a/c power source. if i have a power supply, speakers, cable, can i make my own using better speakers? no not 200 watters, just for fun and using some low wattage quality speakers that havent been slammed on the ground like the ones i am 'borrowing' now. how to add he 'amp'/ for pc or mp3 player use..
i usually plug into my hifi system but it is in the other room.

If you have experience with electronics you could build an amp for your speakers. If you've never touched a soldering iron (and don't want to now) then maybe you could find a cheap amp on craigslist or kijiji. You may even find one for free - I just scored an amp and two 3-way speakers for free on garbage day from the neighbour's curb.

Should work just fine.
