Hi,

Let's say both myself and a friend have a powered mono speaker (in fact, the unit in the link >http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003H3JJZE/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1<)

If I want to plug in a stereo source, such as an iPhone or iPod, is it as simple as rigging up a cable to split out the stereo signal from the source and feeding it into each of the powered mono speakers?  Or would I experience sync issues or anything similar?


Cheers.

Yes, it is that simple.

Why would you experience sync issues?

No idea hence why I asked.

Of course you will have separate volume controls for the left and right speakers. That's not a show-stopper, but it will be a bit inconvenient - instead of turn up the volume a bit, you have to turn up one speaker then try to turn up the other one until it sounds about right.

Yes, true.  But as I'm not dealing with high fidelity equipment this shouldn't be too much of an issue.

That speaker I linked to in my original post arrived a couple of days ago.  The sound quality and volume of it surprised me quite a bit!
