Well this is a real simple question, but I want something that you can plug speakers into, to make it have like 2 ends coming off it (if that makes sense). What I want to do for instance, is have the same set of speakers plugged into two different computers. The computers are about 2 feet apart so it doesn't have to be real long either. I want this because I have a 2.1 sound set up on my better computer that I use mostly for games, but it goes noticeably slower while running iTunes and then sometimes the music skips. I don't plan on playing a sound from both computers at the same time either. What I'm asking is, what are these called, or can someone give me a link? I couldn't find anything on newegg, but i think that might be because I don't know what they are called. Thanks for the help!

It's called a "Y" splitter, and you can get them at Radio shack (I've purchased them there before to use my headphones and speakers on 1 soundcard without having to unplug the headphones to use the speakers).

Here's a little diagram...hope it helps. It should be exactly what you need, so you can take it down to the local computer store and show them what you want to do. You'll have to buy some more speaker wire (Female to Male) to run between the Y splitter and the computer(s).

On the flip side, you might get out of it cheaper if you just buy a new 2.1 set of speakers ($15 HERE from Walmart).

Hope this helps...if not then let us know!
