Welcome Daspawnx!

I'm not quite sure what you want to do. Do you have an external device you are wanting to hook up and play through the speakers?

Try hooking the device up, and open Windows Media Player. In the left pane, see if you can find your device.

I'm not 100% sure what you guys are asking for, but to select your device and set it's properties:

A) Right-click on the Volume icon on the Task Bar > Play Back Devices and then select your default/configure etc


B) Type "Sound" in the search Field of the Task Bar , select Sound and configure from there.

To activate line in:
Right click on the volume icon in task bar, PlayBack Devices, Recording, right click on Line In, Properties...

Then there's a tab named Listen, go there and check the option...And there you are
