That is a car stereo amp and would need a power supply to work. Something like this

That subwoofer is part of a complete samsung home theater in a box system that had an amplifier and 5 speakers. It connects in line to one of the speakers. Do you have the rest of the system, because if so that can easily be connected to any PC by a single TOSLINK optical cable.

If not and you just wanted to run this subwoofer I would not waste the time/money. You would need to buy an amplifier which you can get a cheap one around 50 bucks, and then connect your PC via a RCA Y adaptor to it

do you have a set of computer speakers already?
