    So, heres the question.

    I have a 15" Mid 2009 MBP, and I have a 4 channel Altec Lansing speaker system from an old computer. These are nice speakers, and I wanted to find a way to use them with the MBP.

    The input requires 2 stereo 3.5 mm jacks, but, obviously the MBP only have 1 audio out/headphone jack. Is there any way to use the microphone jack for audio out?

    Its a long shot question, but if anyone has done it...

    BTW, I don't want to have to use a Y cable if I don't have to, that defeats the purpose of it being 4 channels :D
