USMC.. OoRah!!
Hey guys, I got a Audigy MP3+ here. just bought me a Home Theatre with surround sound speakers. THe subwoofer for the Speakers only has RCA outputs. The speakers connect with traditional speaker wire (ya know- the two wires where one goes in one hole and the other in the other hole :) ). My Audigy has 3 line-out jacks ( rear, front, center) for 5.1 surround sound. My problem is that the adapter that I have only converts 2 RCA plugs into 1 stereo input (the part that plugs into the back of the Sound Card). One of the RCA wires is the left channel and the other is the right channel. I was wondering if there was a way to hook up the two RCA wires to the 3 outputs on my SB. Is there some kind of adapter out there? Hope I didn't confuse you guys too bad. Thanks again!

::edit:: I just saw a "piggyback" adapter for RCA (Phono) outputs at a local Radioshack. Will these get the job done?
