I want to use both my speaker (with jack port input only) and my monitor speaker (jack port also). But when I connect them to my PC through "line in" and "front speaker", the PC can only detect one speaker output. If I connect the monitor speaker to my speaker. The monitorcspeaker sound would have delayed sound, about 0.5 second. What should I do or what do I need to be able to use both speaker without any delay?

Line In is not for connection to a speaker, it’s for connection to a source like an iphone or ipod. The delay on the monitor speakers might be tricky to avoid, but we’ll try. You might just need a Y cable. Show me web links to each of these items you have so I can look at the details:

OK, I see the Line Input on the back of the monitor. Nice monitor, by the way!

Let me confirm that you have tried this using 2 audio cables (3.5mm male to male stereo cables):

Connection 1: Motherboard Green Output ---> Monitor Green Input
Connection 2: Monitor Black Output ---> Titan Speaker Aux Input
Windows Setting: Sound Playback device should be Realtek HD Audio Speakers

If you have not tried this yet then give it a try now, but this configuration may be problematic because the Black Output on your monitor is a headphone output and when anything is plugged into it the Monitor Speakers might be disabled. I believe you may have indicated this already, but I'm just verifying.

If that doesn't work, let me know.

The next thing to try would be a headphone splitter "Y" cable - the kind that allows two people (two headphones ) to listen to the same device. Popular with the kids, I think, but you'll use it this way:

Connection 1: Male end of "Y" ---> Motherboard Green Output
Connection 2: Female Leg 1 of "Y" ---> Monitor Green Input (using Male to Male cable)
Connection 3: Female Leg 2 of "Y" ---> Titan Speaker Aux Input (using Male to Male cable)

Thank you for your insight on this.
but there is a bit of a problem. My speaker 3mm cable is not long enough to reach the monitor black 3mm port. So I'll have to buy an extension first.

Can't wait to try this idea. I haven't thought of it.
I'll inform you after I buy the cable in town. (I live in a remote area). Might as well buy the Y cable.

I've just tried the first method. Whem I coneect the monitor speaker. The sound coming out of the monitor just fine. But when I connect the speaker to the monitor, the monitor's speaker are off and the main speaker take over.

Get an audio splitter or mixer run that out from the computer output to the two speakers. You don't connect the second speakers to the monitor, you connect it to the same splitter coming out from the motherboard. Why are you doing this anyway? If you are using external speakers those are pretty much always better sounding than any speakers inside a monitor. The monitor speakers are really only there for simplification not main use.

Well, I've just tried using the splitter and it works. I thought by doing this, I'll get sound that will surround my room more. But your point is true, the speaker totally overpowered the monitor speaker. My sound does felt a bit more spreaded, but not worth the trouble.

But anyway, my curiosity is answered. Thank you for your suggestions. It helps a lot.
