    1. Take your little quarter inch -> PC Mic input adapter, and plug it into your "subwoofer" or "headphone" part of your speaker splitter for your computer.
    2. Take a 1/4" cable and plug it into the adapter, and put the other end into your power amp/combo amp.
    3. Turn your amp on and place it behind you.
    4. Get the volume levels correct (so it balances well).
    5. Get Dark Side of the Moon and put it into your computer (or download it)
    6. Press play.
    7. Sit back.
    8. Enjoy

    AAAEdaji, great tip!

    It's fun rigging different combinations of things (car stereo gear, PA, home stereo, etc) for sound systems in my music room... just to see how it will sound. :D

    Never thought of doing that, connecting the PC and Amp and playing music out of it! Probably never try it either though, but hey nice one for bringing it to my attention :cool:!

  5. LOL, I thought I was the only one that used to use my bass amp as a sub for my stereo. I would hook it up through the headphone out of the stereo and eq out everything but the lowest slider, then sit in front of it and rumble. :)

    I am allergic to obscene amounts of bass in HiFi audio.

    I partied in a 35 sqm (= small) apartment where the owner had put a kilowatt QSC + Wharfedale PA system with 2 1x18 subs to play music through. The speakers sounded like crap even without the subs, but he had all he ever wanted.

    What is it with people and bass? What's wrong with balance?

    I've been known to loan out my spare gear as a party/DJ rig. Depending on which speakers I use, it can sound pretty darn good.
     
  8. I used to do that years ago, before I bought my Genelecs. The problem was that I was concentrating more on endless tweaking than listening to music :meh:
