Answers :

You can't just do that. Your sound card needs to have a specific jack just for subwoofers. If you plug it into the speakers, the computer recognizes the subwoofer as a pair of headphones and routes all sound through it. Remember, a subwoofer is not a normal speaker. It only allows a frequency of extremely low sounds (a.k.a. BASS) and won't play anything that you would need a tweeter for.
