Specs: Windows XP
i spliced a headphone plug into longer wires, best friend was gonna crush his F-150, so i jerked the 6X9's outta it, got them working thru the headphone jack but they ain't nowhere near as loud as they should be, any way to "Bump" up the wattage that y'all know of?

You need to use an amplifier. A headphone socket isn't intended to drive speakers.

while you're in a helpful mood, i recently "happened" across a windows 8.1 OS disk, this is a Dell Inspiron 1520 with XP (SP3), think it can handle 8.1? or will i choke on it? i had a Inspiron 1505 media edition (even older than this one) that we shoehorned 8.1 into and it seemed to work fine (until the morning it decided it wanted more of my coffee than i did lol)

Dell don't provide any drivers for that computer for versions of Windows later than Vista. I wouldn't recommend it. But if it ran on the older machine it might be worth a try - do you have the disks to reinstall XP if it fails?

Win8 is like the readheaded step child of the Microsoft group, along with Vista & WinME. I understand you have the Win8.1 disc, but IMO, Win7 would be a better choice. Or Linux if you're willing to take the time to learn it. Many of the newer Linux distros are very Windows-like, Linux Mint is one example. The Xfce version is very light on system resources plus it's supported until 2023.

If you don't like the Linux idea, here's where you can find the drivers for XP & Vista 32-bit: https://www.dell.com/support/home/u...

Hey thanks y'all, think i'll stick to the XP for a bit longer, Ijack made a good point, i don't have a XP Disk if something goes wrong, and as "Technologically Challenged" as i am, there is an extremely high chance of me makin this thing throw a Rod, main reason i wanted to upgrade was so i could get "Frostwire" but if your OS ain't 7 or better the don't even offer a download, i heard bad stories about Windows 7, but have never used it so i guess i can't form a valid opinion of it, well, like i said, preciate it y'all :)
