I'm trying to setup some speakers for my LOR (16) system that I'm still trying to learn. I thought that the speakers I purchased (http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=10298567) would have some sort of power source, and I assumed that I could just run some speaker wire to them, throw some RCA connectors to the ends of them, and then add an adapter to plug it into the headphone jack of my laptop.
Unfortunately, it wasn't that easy. The speakers didn't have power ran to them...apparently they need to get them from whatever they're connected to.
So, my question is, before I return these, is there some way to inject power into them and still have them work with my laptop?
Thank you for any help & advice that you can provide.
