Question Old '90s speakers for a new PC?

Hey guys,

I found some old '90s speakers in the attic and I was wondering if they could be made competible for a new PC.

On the back it reads:
Pioneer
Cs - 3030
Music power (Din) 120W
Impendance 8 Ohm
Pioneer Electronic Corp
Made in France

- Imput +
(followed by two holes)

I attached a couple of photo's from the front, the back, the holes and the cords.

So guys, can I instal those things on my PC somehow? If yes: how?

These appear to be regular, non-amplified speakers. The problem is that most sound cards expect you to attach amplified speakers so, if you plugged these into your computer, the volume would be too low.

You should be able to find an inexpensive amplifier to connect between your computer and the speakers to be able to get the volume to a satisfactory level.

Yeah as long as you go through an amp, you can use pretty much any type of speaker.

If you search for a 2-channel receiver, your options are pretty much unlimited.
