Well.. im not very smart when it comes to computers and such... so if this sounds stupid hear me out , i bought a new 5.1 Surround system for my computer... when i got it out , i realized it had 3 connectors.. " Green " , " Black " , " Yellow " - Now the sound card i had in my computer was old , and only had the " Green " plug in , so i thought.. what the hell.. why not go buy a card made for 5.1 Surround , so i come home with my new card... get it installed , and can hear almoste no difference besides from the minor static i was getting while playing music.... it doesent matter if the " Black " , " Yellow " connectors are plugged in , it sounds the same.. so whats the purpose?? , I know black is suppose to be for the Sub , and im not even sure what the yellow is for.. But if they're not plugged in , it sounds the same as if they were... hmmm.... If someone could explain to stupid me the purpose of these plugs it be appreciated.
