Two speakers, one PC

I have an older altec lansing 5.1 that I want to add to my existing setup in a 2.1 configuration. Is there anything wrong with running two sets of powered speakers off of one RCA source by splitting the signal using a 3.5 mm splitter?

 

 

 

 

PC

into

Creative ZXR Soundcard

into

Analogue 5.1*

into

RCA Front LR > 3.5 F

into

3.5 M > 3.5 splitter FF

into 

3.5 MM                                    3.5 MM

into                                            into  

Powered Altec Lansing 2.1               Powered Logitech 5.1 

 

 

*The rears and center/sub would be wired normally.

Would work fine. obviously it wouldnt be decoded into proper 7.2, but both systems would play at the same time :)

If you have any questions about ultra high end audio (Or any speakers or audio gear!), don't be afraid to shoot me a message, or mention me.

 

Spent over 960k on audio gear, still trying to increase sound quality.

 

For a guide on Microphones and Interfaces, I strongly suggest scrolling through @The Flying Sloth's guide.

I did this for about two weeks. It worked. Spent over 30 bucks on cables. The double bass improved the sound quite a bit. However, it was still just bad on top of bad, which didn't even make it OK. Did some craigslisting and got a DVD era 100w receiver, some BS22 bookshelves and a 12 inch sub for cheap. I bought some SM45s too. All in 300 bucks. Totally destroys the Logitech z906. A craigslist receiver and used speakers are the way to go.
