As of right now, I have a 2.1 system connected to my desktop PC. Soon I will be getting a laptop for college and I want to bring my speakers with me, but I don't know if I can effectively use them with a single output port on my laptop. I have Cerwin Vega XD3s which consist of a master speaker and a slave speaker, so there is only one cord for input for both speakers. Then I have a Polk PSW10 subwoofer that also has one input cord.

My plan was to use this (https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B0001F347K/_encoding=UTF8?coliid=I3UPQ3FJRIFCXH&colid=1QS89B8TODC72) to connect the speakers together and switch between different inputs depending on what exactly I want outputting to the speakers.

This is the laptop I plan on buying. It has a headphone output and an SPDIF output (https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834315901&cm_re=aspire_nitro-_-34-315-901-_-Product)

Is there any way to do this effectively?

I figured I could connect the speakers and sub with a y-splitter to combine the signal and then use another to split it back into a left and right signal but I don't know if it will work how I am thinking it will.

Any advice?

Okay awesome, thanks! After looking at the source selector I actually realized I can use is as a 4x2 so that I can have two outputs (speakers and sub).
