(Multimedia speaker system 2.1 image by diter from

A 4.1 surround-sound speaker system differs only from 5.1 surround-sound speakers in that the 4.1 unit is missing a dedicated centre speaker, being relegated to only distributing sound through the four corner speakers and the sub. Accomplish the connection of your 4.1 speaker system to your computer by wiring the two sets of speakers (front and back) to your computer's sound card.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Shut down the computer.

  2. 2

    Plug the green connector for the front two speakers into the green jack on your computer's sound card.

  3. 3

    Plug the blue (or black) connector for the rear two speakers into the blue (or black) jack on your computer's sound card.

  4. 4

    Restart the computer to complete the connection.
