    It is possible you would need to buy a kit that converts your normal speaker wire into RCA wire, only downside to this is the sound quality is not too good. would sound muddy.

    Yes, you need a line in converter. If done correctly it will only help better the sound of the system. JL CleanSweep is very good.
