    I still have these neat speakers x3, I asked the mum if we have woofer and said it was missing and I would still like to use these. Those of most speaker come in audio cable, not mini jack and I was looking at amplifier that would power the speakers and convert to mini jack cable to computer.

    It would be brilliant if there is PCI with audio ports to connect these but not sure if it is powerful. I cannot determine the model of these speaker so I would say 10w or 20 w.

    Many thanks

    The picture doesn't provide enough detail. But judging from the connector end that is cut off by how you framed the picture, it appears to have some sort of RCA plug or similar type connector. If this is the case, chances are very high (because you mentioned a subwoofer) that this will never work properly with any amplifier. These speakers are sold as a package which can't be upgraded because the amplifier module in the subwoofer has crossovers built in and designed to equalize the acoustics of the speaker with the subwoofer.

    You're better of not wasting any time on this project and just buy a new speaker system.

    Usually the amplifier is built into the subwoofer case and you have to have an amplifier to run speakers off the computer, unless it is a special high-powered sound card.
