do these speakers draw their power from the computer or the wall and what do you need to hook it up to the computer

it'll have everything you need to plug em into the computer, and its got its own amp like all other speakers so it runs off a power point and no it doesnt use power from the computer - theres no where near enough juice from a sound card to power speakers, earphones at best.

The Z-5500 draw power from the usual AC outlet. Power supply is built in with external heatsinks and so you have just a cord.

Due to the high power draw, if let say your heating/ AC unit in the basement goes on/ off randomly, you might hear a static interference from the speakers or sub makes a poof sound. I know mine does that since my room is directly above the unit.

THe 3 color cables is for the main, rear, and center sound inputs.
