I have two different speakers, and they are different brands. They both work on my desktop. I can plug both of them in but the sound only comes out of the one I set to default through Playback Devices. How do I send the sound through both speakers so both of them are outputting the sound coming from the desktop?

If this wasn't clear, throw me a comment below.

What do you mean you can plug them both in? How are you connecting them? – ernie Jul 1 '13 at 2:47

You cheat. You get a stereo audio splitter, plug that in where your output connector is, and plug in both speakers into it.

Its usually a little box like this

Or a cable with two female ends and one male one like this

Is there a way to do this wirelessly? – Anton8000 Jul 4 '13 at 15:57
