Hello, friends let me tell you a really quick and easy + affordable way to connect Bookshelf speakers to PC.
Most of the computers have their internal built-in computer speaker so most of the people don’t want to use any external but few people like you who are reading this probably want to connect their bookshelf speakers to a PC computer.
So let’s get dive into the procedure to connect the bookshelf speakers to PC. You can also check this video for easy understanding if you don’t like to read.
Most of the Computers have built-in amplification so you can easily hook up your chord and then you are going to used the knobs to increase the volume and enjoy. But
Bookshelf speaker is a speaker that is not powered so it has a driver and as a tweeter sometimes you might find one it’s just a one-way design which has just one driver in it but it does not have any power so it needs power & I think a lot of people maybe don’t know how to incorporate those into a computer-based system so it’s really easy it can be really affordable and so this is just a quick and you may say a dirty way to connect your bookshelf speakers to PC.
Connecting Bookshelf Speakers To PC
So the first thing you obviously need is a computer that’s pretty obvious here there’s two options so read below and you can choose either kind of grab one of these whatever you may think is best for you have this line around.
So first take 3.5 male to 3.5 male cord and if you have one of these great if not you can pick one up on Amazon they’re about eight to ten dollars and this will go into the headphone jack on your computer just like that the other option is to use one of these cables
if you have this line around great use it but if not then you can use this for about the same price on Amazon it’s going to be a 3.5 male right here to RCA switch is red and white same
the thing you’re just going to plug it in the headphone jack so when you do with the computer is going to be outputting a signal from it. It’s going to be converting it to analog so it starts as a digital signals want ones and zeros
The computer is going to convert it to an analog signal so all the music will be already transformed into its waveform and then it’s going to be taken into this amplifier so that the signal can be amplified you can actually hear it over a set of speakers so there are two options when you with the two different cables that I have this here is the loop I LP 20:28 plus amplifier this is great especially for bookshelf speakers or high-efficiency speakers that don’t need a lot of power you can get this amp on Amazon for 28 bucks it’s super reliable it’s got a lot of connectivity options which I’m going to go over here in a second so if you go with this cable here the RCA option you’re going to plug the white part right in there the red part right in there and you’re good to go if you go with the RC or excuse me if you go with a 3.5 millimeter cable you’re going to plug it in just like you would the other one then you have this single cable this amp actually has an input for mp3 which is basically just this you can go either way you can actually have two different sources that I want to make this too complicated but you can actually have two sources go in here at the same time and play one play either one to my knowledge this will play both at the same time so make sure you don’t hit play on both your devices.
But more than likely you’re just going to have one input so I don’t mean to confuse you but I just want to let you know so you’ll have one of these going into one of these outputs one of these inputs you have a power input right here
So you have your wall work that you’re going to plug into an into your wall your AC outlet and then this goes right into the back here once you have that the power buttons.
Here if you see on the front you’re just going to power that on you’ve got your clip binding posts back here your positive and your negative you’re going to get some speaker cable now the speaker cable you can get on Amazon.
If you have some lying around you can use that it’s such a short run probably that you’re using and such low-power that the speaker cable the quality of it is not going to make that big of a difference you just want to make sure that if you hook the read up to the read here that you continue that on to the back ear speaker.
So you’re just going to pull this clip down like that kind of make sure that the wires all together hook that in there and then take the other cable and then up got into there and little latch onto those so let me go ahead and kind of put this all together lay it out and you can kind of see that looks like
If you’ll put together so here’s the final product all installed you got your 3.5 Male cord coming out of the microphone jack it goes behind the computer and then gets plugged into the mp3 check on the back of the evil pie 20 plus then you get your speaker cables plugged into the appropriate binding posts here on the back of the amp and then they get hooked up to the back of the speakers.
I’ve got some banana plugs on the end you can buy those on Amazon or you can just hook up the bare wire to the appropriate red or black terminal on the back of the speaker and then you have your power switch here on the phone yep off zero one is on it’s good to go so there is a down-and-dirty way to hook up a pair of bookshelf speakers to your computer thanks for reading that how to connect bookshelf speakers.
How you will get good Sound?
According to my assumptions and usage, you can get the best & clean sound by pairing these speakers with any receiver. You can also make it a low sensitivity rating using a more powerful amplifier to get the best sound.
As we go up in the ohm then we need more DB sensitivity ratings like if you have the speaker of 4-ohm load then you may need an approx 85dB sensitivity rating that also requires a high power amplifier to provide the best & clear optimum quality.
TIP: If you want to get the speaker of the sound to good then you can hook your speaker with the 8-ohm load & 98-dB sensitivity rating up for any amplifier or receiver.
