Don't! Your laptop output was not designed to drive speakers directly! It won't work or you will burn out the output stage. You need an amplifier. If you are industrious google for schematics. (I've come across a few plans for some several thousand watt monsters myself) Otherwise, just pick up another amp at a store or garage sale. It's better to spend $20 on an amp than a few hundred on repairs because you blew out your laptop's sound chip.

A hifi (including a record turntable and speakers, a tuner/amplifier and possibly a double deck tape recorder and CD player)

To connect your iPod to your hifi you will need a 3.5mm to 2 RCA cable. There should be either white and red, or black and red RCA sockets on your equipment where you plug this into.

Connecting MP3 to HiFiHere is one assumption that I am going to make - your HiFi unit has a built-in FM radio. There are MP3 to FM interface devices available which will achieve what you have asked for. Here is one such device:http://www.fcsurplus.ca/shopping/shopexd.asp?id=15293All you do is to connect the MP3 player to the FM transmitter, tune your hifi to the FM transmitter frequency - and you have wireless transmission for audio for $8 plus shipping.If your HiFi does not have a built-in FM radio, here is another method (assuming that you have an old cassette player). All you would need is a cassette adapter and connect your MP3 player to it, start up your HiFI tape player and you have a low cost interface. If you are the hands-on type, you can locate the pre-amp of the HiFi and inject your MP3 player's audio - but that depends on your electronic knowledge and the model of the HiFi.

A HiFi rack is most often used for placing the componant parts of a home music system on. They are also likely to be used to hold the speakers and, in some cases, a CD collection.

You cant. An amplifier amplifies and electrical signal, adding wattage, to power the speakers, which are basically specialized electrical motors. Thus, just like you cannot remotly plug your vaccuum cleaner into the wall, you cannot remotly send driving signal to an ordinary speaker. There are some setups that use a remote transmission 'reciever' and a speaker with its own 'reciever' and its own powered amplifier (shich must be plugged into the wall), but these are not 'HiFi', they are a gimick, an not very accurate. Some of the cheap gimicky HTIB systems currently emply this.

The benefit of a HiFi music system is the high quality of the sound. HiFi stands for High Fidelity, meaning that the listener will get a superior musical experience when using HiFi music systems.

HiFi is good for listening music as we compare it with Home Theater. HiFi means High fidelity that make reproductions as true to the original as possible, enhancements are limited.

Never heard of a 16 ohm hifi aplifier. All amplifiers have an output impedance of less than 0.1 ohm. We use always impedance matching with a low source impedance to the much higher load impedance. Scroll down to related links and read "Amplifier, Loudspeaker, and Ohms".

if you are looking to replace the door speakers in your Subaru legacy wagon 2001 the size of the speakers in the doors is 6 and 3/4 inches that is measured from the outside of the speaker bracket to the other, if you get into better hifi equipment then the speaker is measured from one side of the cone to the other so make sure which measurement the company you want to buy from is using

A DJ mixer is used to mix audio sources together in to a single output. Typically the inputs are CD players, Ipods, Turntables and a microphone. The output of the mixer is low voltage and requires amplification by a separate power amplifer which in turn drives the external speakers. Because of the high volume levels and peaks (transients) regular domestic "HiFi" speakers aren't built strongly enough to last long. You will require either "Disco" or DJ speakers of PA (band) grade speakers.

Your amp's got enough power there to blow those speakers to kingdom come, but that doesn't mean you can't use them. At low volume settings, you're nowhere near the maximum output of the amp, so use them, but be careful. You should be able to hear when you're overdriving them.

A great laptop to get is a Toshiba L500/00D its a great computer for a teenager for Myspace, Facebook, MSN, Youtube, Twitter, Bebo and iTunes it has 4GB RAM and 400GB Memory it's fast and you can do so many things at once on it! it is about $800 and you can get it from JB-HIFI, Harvey Norman, Dick Smiths, Office Works places like them.

You have to use Bluetooth Audio Receiver.For example like:= Anycom BAR-10 = http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Peripherals/Bluetooth+Devices/Anycom+BAR-10+Bluetooth+Audio+Receiver+-+Connect+your+HiFi+to+any+Bluetooth+music+source%21?productId=29618

High Fidelity, it was the old school "HD" for audio.

ther are currently 131 stores nationwide

Dell Inspiron 1000 can be bought from the nearest JB HiFi, Dick Smith and some EB games store. It can also be bought from a Dell Service center. It would be advisable to buy from the same outlet where one's laptop was purchased.

Go to JB HiFi they will tell you. Now go away!

in a shop (eg JB-HIFI Dick smith) hope this helps

A microphone is a sound (audio) input device. Many computers also feature a "line-in" audio input port which can accept a stereo sounds signal, for example from a HiFi component.Speakers, headphones and "line out" connectors are all audio output devices.

yea there are heaps - check at eb or jb hifi or a shop like that :)

User Avatar

you need a phono/mono plug to a 3.5mm jack. on the back of your amplifier, plug the red and white/black phono/mono plugs into the inputs commonly labelled aux. white/black into white/black and red into red. on the front of your amplifier, select aux and just plug and play.

if you live in Australia Jb-HiFi is cheapest at $87-$89
