Question about M-Audio Studiophile BX8a Speaker
Hi, I have just bought a new desktop (sound card Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer Fatal1ty Professional Series http://us.creative.com/products/product.asp?category=1&subcategory=208&product=15854) and speaker(BX8A). However, I am a newbie to monitor speaker therefore I don't know how to connect my speaker the PC. Which cable, adaptor , or pre-amplifier should I buy to connect my speaker to the PC? I like to listen to music with the best sound quality. Plz give me some help. Thanks
First, let's start with the BX8a. Those are powered speakers (built-in amplifier in each) so, you do not need a pre-amp. What you need to connect them to your computer is a 3.5mm to XLR cable OR a 3.5mm to 1/4" TRS cable, also known as 3.5mm to two 1/4" mono plugs (the back of the BX8a has inputs that accept either type). Cables are available at most any electronics stores. Make sure you buy a long enough cable to run from the back of the computer to where the speakers will be.
It sounds that you only have one BX8a which means you'll be listening to only one channel of the stereo output. In any case, make sure before connecting the speaker(s) to the computer that speaker power is off and volume control is at minimum. Connect the 3.5mm cable end to Line Out 1 jack of the X-Fi sound card and either the XLT or TRS ends to the speaker(s) input(s). Play some audio content on your computer, turn on speaker(s) and slowly increase volume to a safe level. Everything should work fine.
Let me know how it goes.
