I am on a super tight budget. I really just want to improve the sound on my Panasonic VIERA LCD TV. So I saw this:

So I was wondering if I could go pick up a pair of Altec Lansing PC Speakers and hook them up using this adapter.

Is this possible? Will I blow something up?

I'm fairly certain this would work, depending if the Altec Lansing PC speakers have a mini stereo output to connect via the adapter. Also are the speakers powered by the computer (passive) or do they have a plug of their own (active)?

Whoops sorry for late response. I dug up an old pair of speakers that came with my old Dell machine and plugged them in via adapter, and I am getting a pretty significant increase in range. Although it cannot go as loud as it did before. But I keep my volume pretty low anyway.

Thank you and consider this topic closed.
