Focusrite Scarlett Solo with Logitech Z313 2.1

Hi all,

I don’t have studio speakers at the moment, and I would like to hear my guitar through my PC speakers. I am using a Focusrite Scarlett Solo 2nd Gen audio interface, my PC speakers are Logitech Z313 2.1. Could you help me set it up? Thank you in advance.

Im not going to help you set it up, because you can blow the pc speakers. There are reasons way studio monitors exist.

But if you are hell bent on it, just find the cables with the correct outs and ins and your set. Its that easy. Look at the back of your audio interface and look at your speaker input connections. Thats all you need to do

How does it blow the speakers? Aren't speakers designated to create sound they are able to and not go beyond?

If I see it correctly, I would need a twin RCA to 3.5mm jack socket? Currently the jack from the subwoofer connects to the green jack socket at the back of my computer.

And if I connect the speakers to my Focusrite, will I hear music I play on YouTube?

Yes,that are what speakers do, but they are not made for playing instruments through and mixing instrument through.

Like i said, that why they make studio monitors. They are built to withstand the power of monitoring instruments and mixes. PC are not!!! But so what you want, PC speakers are not expensive, so you wont loose a lot.

If you designate that as your sound card for your PC, you can

You could use the solo as a soundcard and plug the guitar into the front of the solo (with switch on 'inst') keep the volume low and can't you plug in headphones for direct monitoring?
