    I have a pc in the garage that I want to play mucis on to the backyard. I will control it from the office by VNC. I have a set of outdoor speakers. Do they make some kind of adapter so that I can use the speaker wire in the the sound card of the pc? I already have the wire ran from the back porch to the garage. Or is there a certain connector that I need to splice so that it will work.

    Thanks

    you still need to run them through an amp, your computer doesn't have enough power to run those speakers.

    You can get an adapter cable that will let you hook the amp to the computer, but you can't hook non powered speakers directly to the computer.
