Hey.
I just bought a new KRK Rokit 5 speaker to match my other one because I've always used one with my computer but, of course, it wasn't a stereo setup. I bought another one so I could use both with my computer but I'm having problems.

I always connected the one to my computer with a 1/8" cable, so since I bought another, I went out and bought another 1/8" cable and a splitter so that I could plug both 1/8" cables into the splitter thing and plug it into the computer. (This wasn't my idea, by the way, the people at RadioShack told me to do this.)

When I do this, though, and turn the new speaker on, it makes a really loud, annoying noise and sound doesn't play through it. I have no idea why and I don't know what to do, so any help would be appreciated!

Thanks.

It seems to me you should be using a simple mini-stereo to RCA cable.

Yeah, shortly after posting this I (finally) got a hold of my local Guitar Center and they told me the same thing.

Thanks!
