I have a two passive speakers that connects with RCA. I want to connect the speakers to my Edifier S330D subwoofer. The subwoofer have speaker wire outputs and a builtin amplifier (It's a 2.1 speaker system). How can I connect the speakers to my subwoofer? How can a convert speaker wire into RCA?

Are they RCA plugs or bannana plugs?

Can you give us a model of the speakers or at least a picture?

If it is banana plugs thyen just get some banana plugs and wire speaker to that.
However we dont want to assume those plugs are for an amplified signal.

It is RCA plugs. I can't find the specific speakers, because they're a bit old. They're from an old CD-player system where the speakers were connected to a CD player (which have an inbuilt amplifier, just like the subwoofer). The speakers were connected with RCA cables to the CD- player. They look a bit like these: http://thumbs.ebaystatic.com/images/g/4X0AAOxy4~BSSRbV/s-l225.jpg

Assuming the speakers are 8ohm , the that sub outputs at 5ohm according to its specs so its theoretically OK to plug those speakers in.

However don't expect them to miraculously sound better , the speaker outputs on that sub will only output high freqencies & you'll probably get very low volume out of it.

Thanks! So it is 100% safe to give it a try and plug the speakers in?
