I've got a bookshelf audio system with two speakers. The CD player/receiver/amp connects to them via standard speaker wire. In other words, there are no RCA plugs, just the standard clip connections. I also have an older amp that connects to speakers via standard speaker wire with clip connections. As long as the two amps are not on simultaneously, I was wondering whether it would be possible to connect both amps to the speakers using standard speaker wire, assuming the the clip connections can accommodate two wires. I am wanting to know this as well, as I have an old phono turntable which requires an older style of amp which has PHONO, but I also have a modern surround sound amp. I would like to know if I can share the same speakers between the two amps, and how can this be done? Hi again Schnazola, As you are only wanting to switch two speakers between amps, I thought this may help. There are also similar speaker switches available on ebay. Probably cheaper to make your own. This page shows you how.

Can you use computer speakers for regular stereo speakers?

Yes you can, computer speakers are no different than stereo speakers in construction, the only difference is that computer speakers are usually a lot less powerful as they wont perform as well with a stereo system usually. +++ Performance and power are not synonyms.
