  1. I am trying to use my laptop to hook up to some speakers. I use the headphone jack and use the proper adapter to go to an amplifier. It works fine but when I split the headpone connection and run to 2 seperate amps it barely gives any sound.

    Sounds like an ohmage mismatch!!! A pre amp may fix the problem but theres no guarantee that it will.

    Or you split it incorrectly. I assume this is a stero jack, so there's 3 wires. A left, right and ground. You have to have it split so you have a L&G and R&G.
