I decided I wanted to get rid of my 7 year old powered Compaq speakers and replaced them with some unpowered ones (not really into the whole "sound experience" thing, and wanted to save power, the world and the univerise yadda yadda yadda.
However, I would like to actually experience some sound at all. I can barely hear them. What's up with that - do I need to go back to powered speakers?
More details - onboard sound only (Asus M2A-VM mobo), 2W speakers.
