It's how my own set-up works.
I have a Goodman's powered speaker system with sub-woofer, originally designed for use with MP3 players. The 40W amp's built-in to the subwoofer. Mains lead, speaker leads, and a 1.5 metre lead with a 3.5 mm jack plug all come out from the back, which is also where the power switch is located. On/off, volume, and sub-bass controls are situated on the front, and the whole thing sits under my bed to one side, with the sub firing back at the wall.
So nowadays, it's plugged into the rear headphone socket on the desktop, via a 3-metre extension lead. It's been working fine like that for at least 5 years & counting.....
