    Pointless, because standard DVI does not carry audio, and your DVI monitor won't produce sound through it. Just run stereo audio cables separately to wherever.

    i was thinking so i know unstandard dvi can carry audio on unused pins
    although i was hoping hdmi could split the audio off to rca and video to dvi not having to worry about that

    RCA carries analog audio, and HDMI carries digital audio, so you can't simply split it off. You would need a decoder, which isn't simply an adapter, it would be a box that plugs into the wall and costs a few hundred bucks.
