ok, im gettin a laptop and wanted some decent sound. Im going for a 2.1 setup, something cheap, using these (http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?&Partnumber=250-675) and this (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00026BQJ6/ref=pd_cp_e_0/102-9217371-0676923?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-41&pf_rd_r=06B1HMM66N4E6ZJQ15TN&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_p=250314601&pf_rd_i=B00004UFQR), and then using this (http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?&Partnumber=300-635) for the sub and sub amp. My question is, do i have to get a receiver or can i run the speaker amp and the powered subwoofer amp off of the audio out on my laptop, like a 3.5mm to rca cable? The amps should have a crossover built into them so i can just split the signal and send it to each amp cant i?
