Bypass built-in monitor speakers?

I bought some barely decent computer speakers with ""sub-woofer"" but I can't use them, so far. My new Asus monitor came with built-in speakers (tried to avoid this "feature" but the store offered no other good 27" monitors).

I'm guessing that using the VGA connection might bypass the built-in monitor speakers. My Vidcard offers only HDMI.
The sound from my new Linux box is too danged quiet. Having an adjustable Volume 3-piece speaker rig would probably make the volume OK.

I'm guessing that using VGA would also really degrade picture quality.

Any ideas are most welcome!
When the world will be better.
