I am using a JVC sound system with my TV, and I recently bought a new center speaker to the JVC. I love using spare gadgets to create something, so I decided to use the replaced center speaker with my self-built desktop computer. Unlike the JVC, my computer has minijack stereo audio outputs instead of speaker terminals. The speaker has a connector identical to the connectors on the back of the JVC. Can I just Y-split the audio signal from the computer minijack and connect one of the signals to the speaker (for example LEFT to red and GND to black)?
Just split a normal TRS audio cable into 3 wires (L, R, GND) or a TS audio cable into 2 wires (L, GND). GND connects to the black terminal, while L or R connects to red.
