    Do you have a separate amplifier with line-in inputs? You can use that...

    I might try the Sound Blaster approach or try using the speaker from my old Gateway 2000 which was much louder if I could get it out.

    I installed the speaker from my Gateway 2000 case and it puts out a good volume. I can actually hear them in games with adlib music now! The strange thing was that the speaker had the same specs but just louder for some reason. I guess early 90's speakers had better volume than the ones in the later 90's.

    Actually, for the best match, you should be using a high-impedance (say 16 or 32 ohms) speaker. Or better yet, try a small output transformer, say 500 ohm to 8 ohm. That's my reckoning anyway...
