You can find refurbished soundbars for like $100-200, so it's not overly expensive and it's designed for this sort of usage. Computer speakers typically are not.

As a random example: Philips Sound Bar (HTL2160/F7) : Sound Bars - Best Buy Canada

Found a solution probably not the cheapest, bought an A/V receiver- Onkyo sr313 , older model on sale at best buy for $229, sale ends today idea, plugged in the hdmi cable's from all sources used the headphones out to the harmon kardon speakers. All volumes work nice same level from each source now. Like these speakers so kinda wanted to get them working, instead of replacing them.

Ya, she only has about 65 watts/channel but yes she can handle normal speakers in the end if need be, had to really crank the volume on the older Logitech controller now doing good to go over 17/100. Using the tv to do all the switching was not a good idea as the audio out really sucked over the coax connection .
It's nice to see out all stable and same volumn now.
