Windows 7: How to Play Sound Through 2 Speakers With 2 Cables

How to Play Sound Through 2 Speakers With 2 Cables

Greetings Reader,
I recently got 2 old "micro nucleus" speakers from a friend when they were cleaning out the apartment. I got a fairly cheap amplifier, plugged the speakers in, then found out that the amplifier output is through 2 3.5mm audio jacks. I tried just plugging these into my computer and messing around with Realtek HD Audio Manager, but I can't find a way to get one plug to play to the left speaker and one to play to the right. I've messed about with connection retasking, speaker balance etc. but cannot find a way to make this happen. I would purchase a Y splitter cable but I'm not sure if that keeps the left and right feeds separate. Ideally there would be some hidden setting or adjustment for this, but anything helps.
Thanks for your time (and hopefully your suggestion),

The Green speaker out jack is a stereo jack. If the amp input is separate (Left/Right) jacks, a "Y" cable that breaks out the stereo to two separate Left/Right jacks is what you need.
