    Computer speakers typically have the amp in one speaker, and the other is passive. The input is stereo (1/8" TRS).

I will check in more detail tonight, maybe take a few photos and comment here. Thank you so much for all the help so far!
    I believe you need a cable like this >>>> Hosa-CMP-159-Stereo-Breakout-Cable

    This will take the left and right outputs of the M-Track Plus and correctly send it to input of the single computer speaker where the signal is split to go to the second speaker via its interconnecting cable.
    If using just the mic on one input of the M-Track Plus, set the 'Stereo/Mono' switch to Mono so the sound will come from both speakers. This switch only affects Direct Monitoring and not the audio that plays back from your computer according to the manual.
    Mark.......

    Hi guys, thanks for all the help, your comments resolved the issue.

    I turned one of the knobs to "Direct" fully and the Gain also almost to the maximum level (anything bellow the max level did not provide any output at all) and now it all works perfectly. I am sure those are rookie settings but I am new to this. Anyways thank you all so much for helping out!

    I'm not being funny, but if the only thing wrong was that you hadn't turned the gain up or turned one of the very few knobs on the unit, you might be pushing your envelope for music in general. This isn't just simple, but a bit like the musical equivalent of calling the garage out because you didn't try turning your new cars ignition key. I don't normally get grumpy like this, but we do appear to have spent more of our time on this than you did! We had to look at pictures, read manuals, sit down and type. You had two knobs to turn and didn't bother to even try?

    Somethings still not right if you have to turn the gain up all the way. I suspect it's the connection to the speakers.
