Need to Run 2 Computers to 1 Speaker

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I am not quite sure what I need, but I need to be able to run 2 computers into 1 set of speakers (computers with standard 3.5mm jacks, speakers have standard 3.5mm jack). Do I need a special sort of amp/dac that takes essentially 2 inputs with 1 output? With the ability to be able to switch? Basically just need something cheap.

Maybe a standard 3.5mm Y cable like this ?

Every cable ive seen like that, it splits it up into 1 mic, and 1 speaker. And it should be 2 male 1 female. Ive gotten one in, but like I said, one end is for the mic, one is for the speaker.

 

I didnt think there even was a cable solution, I thought I needed some sort of dac or amp.

Look up This;

 

Behringer MINIM0N MON800 or this C Control by Samson.

 

I use the MON800 for the exact purpose you've asked about. Around 40-60 bucks US last I checked.
