multiple PC's, once set of speakers ?

Is there a set of wires that will let me use the same speakers between multiple PC's ? I have a 4 port KVM switch and only use 2 ports at present to share a keyboard, mouse and monitor. Just wondering if there was anyway to share the speakers too ?

I got this splitter at Radio Shack that does the trick...Just go in an electronic store and look at the different splitters they have. One is bound to solve your problem.

Don't use splitters!

...rather you should designate one PC/soundcard as the "master output" card and run the output of the other soundcard to the input of the "master" soundcard. As you add PC's to the system, continue to "daisy-chain" outputs to inputs, all ending at the "master".
