You were fortunate enough that your speakers had a high enough impedance that it didn't smoke your sound card. And you'd only get a couple watts at best. I have no doubt it at least worked by I do question just how well. A couple of watts will take you farther than most might realize but I'd bet that your soundcard was struggling to do that and I have to wonder just how much distortion there was.
