You will need
- amp, old speakers, a suitable plug, wire for 3.5 mm jacks, the computer (the hub)
For starters, get an amplifier because the sound card in your computer is not compatible with speaker systems. Look at home, maybe you have a tape player or turntable, suitable to these columns. The main thing is to plug speakers up to the amplifier. Finding the right socket will realize by experience (stick and see if it fits).
If plug will not fit, change it to one that is connected to the amplifier. It is better to apply to the appropriate master.
Now take the cable suitable for 3.5 mm Jack. It could be the wire from the headphones.
If you connect the amplifier to the sound card, there is a reasonable probability that the entrance can burn. So first connect, for example, the old player and see if everything was okay and whether sound.
If everything is normal, the specified cord headphone connect the output from your sound card (usually it is located on the back of the unit from the computer or side of the laptop, it is round nest green) and amplifier. On the old amp looking for a good socket empirically, as in paragraph one.
Sometimes speakers are in the living room and computer in another room. Buy a few meters of the respective cable to the adapter, then the problem is easily solved.
Pay attention to the sound quality, if there is a background hiss, change the amplifier you can just buy another old tape recorder or musical center with it.
When connecting multiple speakers purchase a splitter to the music center, which will allow you to do this.
Advice 2: How to connect old speakers to computer
The sound of cheap plastic speakers you do not like, and to buy an expensive speaker system while it is not possible?

How to make the connection in this case will be discussed further.
Prepare your speakers and amplifier to work. If they are not used, then at least covered with dust RUB them. Locate all network and patch cords from the amplifier and speakers, connect them with each other. Usually the connection diagram is quite simple. From the amp one wire goes to the network and two separated on each column. Do not connect speakers to the amplifier when it is enabled.
Look at the rear panel socket for connection to the amplifier. Insert the plug. The other end of the switching wire insert in one of the amplifier channels. Need inputs you can find on its rear panel. Turn the amplifier into the socket and press the On button.
Test the amplifier to connect to the old computer speakers. Connect the old player, tape recorder or record player. The main thing here is to check whether the signal and whether it is transmitted without distortion. It is necessary not to burn the sound card your personal computer. The efficiency of the amplifier and speakers you can also test using bare from one end of the wire that is inserted in the amplifier input. This will show the background level and whether he did, but it is better to connect the player.
Make a cord adapter. As a rule, in old amplifiers input "spatialecology". In your sound card input "mini-Jack". You need to make a cord to connect the amplifier and old speakers. For this you need a shielded two-core wire and two plug - minijack and spatialecology. Solder them on different ends of the wire.
If you have such a talent there, go on radio the market and order such an adapter there. In the store you are unlikely to find it because spatialecology connector for a long time already not in use.
Connect the minijack output of your sound card, and spatialecology - in amplifier input. Run the computer any audio track and adjust the volume on the amplifier. Adjust the volume, timbre, balance, etc. connected to the computer such a system is simple if all required switching. Before each shutdown the amplifier completely remove the volume.
