I hate to trouble you all with a post like this, but I'm looking for a way to use my old stereo speakers as monitors for my recording/mixing sessions. The speakers are Sony model no. SS-MC3AV and use what I think are called stripped or bare wires to connect to the stereo. With what little knowledge I have, I'm fairly certain that they are passive speakers powered by an amp within the stereo system. I am using the receiver they came with currently for my entertainment system with another pair of passive speakers, so I would need an alternative, but all I can find online are power amps with RCA, XLR, and S-PDIF inputs.
Would anyone have any idea of what I might be looking for and any extra info I might need to know before going to Guitar Center/Sam Ash? I like to know as much as possible before I start spending $. I'm sure you all understand.
Thank you for your time.
