Can I use 5.1 speakers with my iMac?
I just got a 17" iMac Core Duo off of eBay and it should be arriving here tomorrow. :headphone In the mean time, I thought I'd ask a few questions - get more familiar with the platform. So, like the title says, would it be possible for me to use my Logitech X-530's with my new iMac? Or will I only be able to use the front 2? And if that's the case (can only use the front speakers), will I be able to use the subwoofer as well? Thanks for helping the newbie!

I have those speakers also, I only use the front speakers (the sub works too).

You can get an external sound card device that will let you hook all of the speakers, though.

Pricy solution.

Haha, well, I think I'll just be using two speakers then. :D I mainly use them for listening to music anyway, and the occasional game, so 2.1 audio should be fine. But how does the sub work if there's only one line-out jack on the back? Unless you don't need to plug in the dedicated plug for the sub...
