Need info on Y-splitter -- already checked archives


Recommended Posts

I would like to hook up a pair of headphones to my system, but I don't want to have to keep unplugging my klipschs in order to do so.

Would it be possible to hook up a y-splitter to my SB Live Value in order to accomplish this task?

I'm heading to radio shack today to look for the y-splitter. Please let me know if there's any particular type or model of y-splitter that I should look for or stay away from. I would also greatly appreciate it if someone could explain how best to hook it up.

Thanks in advance to those who can render assistance.

heh. kind of strange but i just bought an sblive value, and i just did the exact same thing. it works flawlessly. ill give you the exact name and part number from radio shack:

dual stereo headphone adapter

(text under the titleSmile.gif

adapts two 1/8" (3.5mm) 3 conductor plugs to one 1/8" 3 conductor jack. gold plated

cat no. 274-879A

i put that thing in the front speaker jack and plugged the klipsch green cord and a stereo cable into it. i put a dual 1/8" coupler on the end of the stereo cord, taped it to the top of my table. so the plugin for my headphones is now right beside my keyboard :D no difference in quality is noticeable at all.. through the klipsch or my grado sr-60 headphones.
