Question Connecting two Klipsch Promedias to one 3.5mm output

Dec 7, 2020

I have two 2.1 Klipsch Promedias and I have played them on my desktop computer. There were two 3.5mm inputs on my desktop, one on the front and on the back. My desktop allowed me to control the volume and bass of each 2.1 set individually and it sounded amazing. However, I am trying to get the same sound on my Macbook which only has one 3.5mm input, so purchased a 2-female to 1-male 3.5mm jack splitter. The satellites themselves play music fine and I can control the volume on both sets individually, but when I control the bass on one of them, it seems to counteract the other set. If I turn both bass dials up, the overall bass is weaker than if I turned one of the dials up and the other remained all the way down.

I was wondering what is causing this and how I can output to each set individually. I am thinking the splitter is the problem, but I'm not sure how to fix it.

Thank you - Lucas
