There are all sorts of audio amps -- some have a DC bias on the input, and in some cases if you direct-couple the two inputs they can blow out. That's why I was wondering about (DC blocking) capacitive coupling. There are also amps that will blow out if you AC-couple the two inputs, which is why I asked about an active splitter. I've never messed with PC speaker systems, other than to plug one into a PC sound card, and I was hoping someone with practical experience could advise me. Hopefully, the amp isn't too cheap and is reasonably forgiving. Realistically, in the audio range I don't think there'd be much roll-off if I used capacitors, particularly polypropylene ones, which are generally used only in high-end audio gear (mylar being used in cheaper equipment). >If you make them slightly different you get somewhat a "widened" signal >which sounds a bit more more like a true stereo signal as opposed to "mono >coming from two speakers". Or use a R-C or L-C filter on one channel?
