Answers :

\015\012VGA only does visual. You will either need an optical cable for your set or a red and white cable for your telly.\015\012---------\015\012why are you using a 2-into-1 adaptor?

what sort of inputs do your speakers have?

plus are they powered speakers? you need some source of amplification. you won't get any sound without power amplification. are you putting both the white cable and the red cable into the adapter then into the speakers?
\015\012-----\015\012you have a pair of speakers with power source and phono input.an 2 Phono RCA socket to one phono plug adaptor.\015\012------
\015\012there is no sound coming Because what you are doing is taking two sources (right and left audio) and trying to stick it into one input.
It's like two trains trying to use the same piece of track, they collide and people die horribly.

It also means you are driving the outputs from the 360 with each other, which could damage them.

I reckon you only have a mono input to your speakers, which means only using one of the speaker cables, red or white.
\015\012-------\015\012\015\012your monitor has no built in speakers whatsoever. even if it did it would definatly be 5.1 surround sound. You need to get your original av cable from the xbox and plug it in.

from that get the red and white auidio cables and then get a rca to 3.5 mm headphone adapter.

get a headphone splitter

get a 3.5 mm headphone cable with both ends being male

get a female to female headphone adapter

connect the white and red rca cables from the xbox 360 to those on the adapter.

connect the adapter to one of the 2 jacks on the adaptor.

connect your 3.5 mm cable (both ends being male) to the other jack in the splitter.

unplug the speakers from your computer.

plug in the wire from the splitter to where the computer speakers were connected before.

no plug the female to female adapter to the bottom of the splitter and plug your computer speakers to that.

i would try a local electronics store such as fry's or radio shack as well as the 99 cent store before buying on ebay. i list ebay pages below as a referance example. the first page however you may need to buy from ebay as i have never seen those in stores yet.\015\012Source(s):\015\012http://budgetgamer.wordpress.com/2008/08…
last 2 images in the article are both what you need in addition to the headphone splitter.
ebay pages:
http://cgi.ebay.com/2-3-5mm-Female-to-F-…

http://cgi.ebay.com/3-5MM-1-8-MALE-TO-2-…

http://cgi.ebay.com/3-5mm-Stereo-Headpho…

http://cgi.ebay.com/3-5MM-MALE-HEADSET-H…

Unless you got a strange connector with the speakers that has 3 bits of metal on it.

Or there is a stereo input and an RCA jack between the speakers.

do you have a link to which speakers you are using?

cheapest other option is to buy a cheap set of PC speakers with 2 RCA inputs.
