HI, i have just bought i 5.1 home surround system. i have an external Creative Soundblaster live 24-bit. Do i connect all the speaker and the sub into the soundcard? i did it with one speaker (it works but cant get alot of volume). Or do i connect the speakers to the sub? but i dont know how to connect the sub to my soundcard. On the back on the sub i have:
Aux R L

FR FL
5.1ch SR SL
SUB CEN

All jack inputs, then below them i have the Outputs for the speakers i asume. Do i need to buy anything? what do i need and how to i do it? On the back of my soundcard i have C/Sub, Rear, Front, Line In, SPDIF out. i bought 3 jack inputs for the C/sub, Rear and Front. many thanks guys!
 

hope this helps

u can go to radio shak and buy a spliter cable tell them what u r trying to do and they will help u this is what i did when i did not have $ for comp speakers

it will prably cost about $10
it will be in stereo and not 5.1 but this is the only way i now of doing this

this will plug into the green plug on your sound card
and red and white on the back of the sub
