The Logitech speaker has three wires running out of it
orange-subwoofer
green- front speakers
black-rear



If I were to simply connect the green wire from my subwoofer port to my headphone jack would the subwoofer work too? If not is there an adapater/cable that I can buy that will connect at least the green/orange to a single 3.5mm headphone jack (connecting to PC)? So that as opposed to only having the green wire/front speakers ONLY ouputting sound I would ALSO have my subwoofer outputting sound?

I am looking for something like this http://www.cnet.com.au/i/r/2004/Notebooks/Notebooks/creative_spe... What's the name of this cable? How about a cable like this but with a 3.5mm male stereo at the end with HDMI?

What's the model of the speakers? Generally speaking on these systems the sound output from the PC goes to the subwoofer. The power goes there as well. Without that connection you wouldn't get anything.

But without the model number so we can see what your model actually looks like all we can do is guess.

Logitech x 530, but a laptop does not typically have multiple inputs for the subwoofer/rear/front. a pc does. i am speaking of the former

PCs don't have inputs for speakers. They have outputs. Sound goes out to the speakers. Maybe that's part of why I'm having trouble with your post... a little bit of misunderstanding. So, you are basically asking if you can connect this speaker set to your laptop and get sound?

This is from the manual for the x530:

2-channel sound card: Connect the green plug from the audio input cable to the “line out” jack on your sound
card. Do not use the black or orange plugs.
With a 2-channel sound card you will not hear sound from the rear speakers.

I think he's asking if he can connect the subwoofer directly to the computer without using the other speakers? I think most subwoofers have direct connection to the output wire anyway.

I don't think you can find this and use it in some kind of other audio configuration as it is a proprietary device / cable form Creative.

3.5mm to HDMI cable doesn’t exists, as it needs analog to digital signal conversion. You should try to look for some cheap USB DAC's.
