ok i think it will be easier if i just type out how I have it wired up instead XD since I don't have any felt pens lying around XD
ok positive power wire goes to positive speaker wire then a resistor goes between that point and the positive input wire
and the positive input wire has a capacitor in between it to remove DC from flowing backwards to the computer.
and the positive input wire goes to the transistor's 1'st lead
then the 3rd lead of the transistor goes to the negative input wire and the negative input wire also goes to the negative power wire
and the negative speaker wire goes to the middle transistor lead
I think that's it I hope I didn't forget anything!
by the way I have no clue what a UFO shot is
and my speaker is only being powered literally by a 5 volt 800mA charger cord and it shakes my desk and my computer around because it's so loud and has so much bass!! and it doesn't even get hot!!!
if I gave it 12 volts I don't know what would happen!!

Don't, please don't! I read just this same description about this doomsday machine
You'll blow up the earth, for Pete's sake! Don't! Don't !

I can't wait to see the schematic!!
The first, second and third transistor's leads go somewhere but we don't know whether it is the base, the collector or the emitter. We have six posibilities and don't tell me some of them are impossible because this amplifier defies the laws of electronics.

The mk2 version. And it works... sort of. (we think the transistors a darlington if I remember correctly)

realflow100, there is one fundamental difference between this amp and your first. Can you see what it is ?
