Hello. I have two sets of old z120 Logitech speakers that work well for listening to movies ect at the moment I just one pair. What would be the easiest and cheapest way of connecting 2 pairs of these speakers for a total of 4. And so windows recognises them as one and work all together such as surround sound.

Some background

Surround sound works by taking a signal and splitting it up so that each speaker gets different information to play.

This kind of outlines the basics

One thing to note, two GOOD speakers that are well positioned will generally give you a better experience than 4 speakers that are poorly positioned. This is especially the case if you're playing stereo output (so only info for two speakers and a DSP does the best it can to split it). Bad positioning will ruin pretty much any effect. Speakers should be as close to this pattern as possible, at ear level, pointed at your ears.

If your goal is multi-stereo - yes this is possible but you can do more harm than good due to things like comb filtering (some of the sound waves canceling each other out while others multiple each other)



 

I do want to emphasize, two GOOD speakers (doesn't necessarily mean $$$) will generally work out better than 100 poor speakers.

2.1 audio is probably where you'd want to start, not hacky 4.0.
