    umm...what type of speakers???...if you have the average shitty PC speakers you'll just need a mini jack (headphone size) on both ends

    My PC speakers are digital so I dont think thats possible :hs:

    You'll also need power to push them so make sure you are using powered speakers :hs:

    what kind of mp3 player? what kind of speakers?

    the headphone out on the mp3 player should be able to plug into "computer" speakers - except you will proley need a adapter.

    also are you trying to play these while the computer is on? or just have speakers so you can use your mp3 player like a boombox?

    you can connect any amplified speakers using the headphone out - but i would need to know more about the speakers to tell you what kind of converter is needed if any.

    take your headphones out of mp3 player. unplug speaker from computer [in the back of the comp]. plug the pc speaker cable into that port in the mp3 player.

    ipod

    my old crappy harmon kardon speakers had a standard headphone jack so it was easy to make work.

    my new speakers have 3 connections coming out of it, is their an adaptor to make it fit into the headphone jack of the ipod?

    i believe your new speakers are some kind of 5.1 system or something (more than 2 speakers) and the 3 connections you see are 1 for front speakers, left and right, 1 for rear left and right, and one for the center channel/sub.

    but without knowing what kind of connectors they are im kinda stuck. my advice - either take pictures, or take both items to radio shack and tell the kid there i need to plue *this* in *this* gimme gimme gimme.
