Headphone amp to powered speakers?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So I have these two things:

I'm wondering what would happen if I do computer to headphone amp to speakers? Would I risk blowing things? Would I even get any more volume out of it? I'm not even looking necessarily for more driving power (is that even the correct term?) I've heard the speakers don't have the best bass so the cMoy could help with that.

 

I'm sorry if this is stupid (it probably is, too), I don't have much experience with these things. Oh, and this is probably the wrong forum to ask but I saw another thread somewhat similar to this.

The headphone amp won't give you more volume on your powered speakers (or very little at best). If you want more volume, then get powered speakers that have a more powerful amp, or get un-powered speakers and a good audio amp. The cMoy will also not change the bass very much - the bottom line is that the powered speakers are what they are - and if you want a significantly different sound, then get different speakers.

Yep, seems like a very poor way to add an EQ.
