I need a speaker adaptor. Where????

Is there an adaptor that will allow me use non-dell speakers.  They are the cheap G -691A multimedia speaker system with their own power supply.

I want to use them with my Demension 2400

Any help would be appreciated.

Re: I need a speaker adaptor. Where????

All "computer" speakers come with the standard 1/8" stereo plugs.  It sounds like those speakers are not  computer speakers (which are also shielded so no RF interference from the monitor or PC will affect them).  I don't even remember old speakers that weren't "powered" that didn't have the 1/8" stereo plug.

You may want to reconsider using them.  You don't say what type of connector is on those speakers but you can probably get an adapter at Radio Shack.

Firebred,

Actually, the speaker are powered and came from my old computer.  These speakers are available and compatible with all other computers; they just don't fit my dell.

I may check with Radio Shack for an adaptor.

I still don't understand.  If they are "standard" computer speakers then they have the 1/8" (3.5mm) stereo plug.  Your Dell also has the standard 1/8" jack. 

What is different on your speakers?

Actually, there is no regular stereo plug in the back of my 2400, rather a single green female port about 1/16".  A collegue of mine has a similar port as mine and has speakers made by CE.  The number on the bottom of his speakers is DP/N 058JMY I C/O CN / Rev A00.  They are also self powered.

I haven't seen a Dell 2400, but it must have the standard 1/8" (3.5mm) stereo speaker jack as as I haven't seen any other posts about not being able to connect speakers.  The green jack is the speaker jack.  The stock 2400's, from what I've been told, have on-board sound modules, not PCI sound cards.
