I'm pretty certain that if you have your 360 connected via VGA through a monitor, the only option you've got for the audio is via an amp / surround system.

The reason that the vga cable has red/white phono leads is that some TVs have VGA sockets as well as the audio in sockets.

Oh right ok , do you know where i can get one? Can i get a portable one and how much do you think i would have to pay?

You should have gotten an adaptor with the 360 that puts the two audio leads into a single phono jack. Simply plug this into the correct hole on the speakers if you have one.

If you need to buy one make sure it's 2x RCA Phono Female to 1x 3.5mm Male Jack. If you got an official cable one should have come with it.

Yeah i realise that, i don't have one of those , but i have speakers with a subwoofer so if i plugged that into subwoofer it would only play through there and not through the 2 speakers connected to it. Can you get something similar to that but instead of 3.5mm output on other end a 3.5mm input?
Or would i just need a 3.5mm jack?

So am i right in thinking that to connect my 360 to my speakers which have a 3.5mm output , i need an rca to 3.5mm adaptor and then a 3.5mm jack like in the picture above?

What speakers specifically? (so I can google them)

If your speakers have a 3.5mm input (for MP3 players and such) you should be able to just plug the two RCA cables into the adapter and plug that into the speakers to get sound. How is your PC connected to these speakers?

Is it a wire coming from the speakers with a 3.5mm jack on the end that plugs into the PC? If so then as you suggested a female to female may help, doesn't hurt to try as it will only be a few quid.

I've owned a few PC speakers and they tend to connect one of four ways.

a) A wire coming from the speakers with a 3.5mm jack on the end that plugs into the computer.

b) A 3.5mm socket on the speakers that requires a double male cable.

c) Two RCA sockets on the speakers that need either stereo cables or an adaptor.

d) B and C so you have a choice.

Basically
I have 2 Logitech speakers which are connected to the subwoofer by a 3.5mm jack and then the 3.55m coming from the subwoofer connects to my pc. So basically it is an output 3.5mm.
I think this could work?:

RCA -> 3.5mm Converter -> 3.5mm adapter ( two inputs on either end ) then plug the speakers into the other end?

Is the cable that comes from the subwoofer hard wired (as in not plugged into a jack on the subwoofer but is actually part of the unit). If it is part of the unit then a female to female should work (two inputs) if it turns out it is just plugged into a socket then just unplug it and stick the adapter.

Most 2.1 speaker packages plug the two speakers into the subwoofer then everything plugs into that to get sound. If using the current setup you are getting sound from the PC then it is just a simple case of taking the cable or input used with the PC and working out how to get the 360 to connect as you have already proved sound comes out.

Either

Cable from subwoofer (with 3.5mm end) > female to female > adapter for rca to 3.5mm > 360 stereo cable

or if it (subwoofer) has 3.5mm input.

Subwoofer input > adapter for rca to 3.5mm> 360 stereo cable

banned#20
Basically i got the RCA to 3.5mm jack and then a 3.5mm Coupler and then plug my speakers into the other end of the coupler :)
#21
you know the 3.5mm wire on your speaker can you take that off ??
as my one can and you can put the RCA 3.5mm sonnector in the speaker so no need for the coupler ??
you get me ?
banned#22

#23
well if you can take off the 3.5mm cable from your speaker you can connect the RCA adaptor straight to your speaker
banned#24
