I recently added a new Computer Desk and the Audio Cable from the Powered Speaker to the Computer Out Jack is not long enough. I can,t find an Extension Cable. Is there such and how do you define the type of Plug and Jack for the cable?

Plug the power transformer into the bottom jack on the back of the right-channel speaker. This is the speaker with the on/off knob on the front.
Plug the audio cable attached to the left-channel speaker into the audio jack on the back of the right-channel speaker. The jack is immediately above the jack for the power cord.
Plug the audio jack attached to the back of the right-channel speaker into the headphone jack on a laptop computer (usually located along the left edge), or to the audio output jack on the back of a desktop PC.
Plug the speaker transformer into a surge protector and the surge protector into a wall outlet.
Turn the on-off and volume control knob clockwise on the front of the right-channel Inspiron speaker to activate the stereo speakers and adjust the volume.
Check that the speakers are powered on (assuming they need power) and that the volume control is set at a mid-level.Next check that you have the speaker 3.5mm jack plug inserted into the correct speaker socket on the audio card - there are normally three sockets, one each for a microphone, speaker or headphone output and for line output - these are often colour coded on newer systems and if so, match the colour of the speaker jack plug to the speaker socket.If the speakers are connected by USB instead of an audio jack plug, then check to see if the USB device has been recognised automatically - if not, then you may need to find any software that came with the speakers and install this before the system will recognise them.Finally, open the system audio controls and check what device is selected for audio output - ensure that this is the same as the speaker device you are wanting to use.One further test, if you have the speakers powered on and they have a standard audio jack, you should hear some feedback sound if you touch the contacts at the end of the jack plug with your fingers.
Two audio input cables are supplied with the speakers. If your
computer has a stereo mini jack, use the cable with a stereo mini
plug. Otherwise, use the cable with RCA plugs on both ends.
Match the colors on the connectors to the colors on the jacks, red
to red and white to white.
The speaker cable is already attached at one end to the accessory
speaker. Plug the other end into the TO ACCESSORY SPEAKER
jack on the powered speaker.
1. Connect one end of the audio input cable to AUDIO INPUTS A.
2. Connect the other end to your computer's AUDIO OUTPUT jack.
We recommend using LINE OUT if your computer sound card
offers more than one option.
3. To connect a separate CD-ROM, or another source, repeat
steps 1 and 2 using AUDIO INPUTS B.
You must connect the AC power pack to operate the speakers.
1. Plug its cable end into the power jack on the powered speaker.
2. Plug the power pack blades into the wall outlet.
3. Turn on your computer sound source or external sound source.
Make sure you can see the small LED light on the speakers. If I remember correctly, those speakers are USB powered, and need to be plugged into the USB port for power, and the green audio output port for sound signal. If they are plugged in, and you cannot turn them on, you have broken speakers. If you CAN turn them on, then ensure that the audio cable is plugged into the green audio output jack (sometimes it has a headphone icon by it) and make sure your computer has not muted the audio.
go to Radio Shack or whoever is closest for audio cables, ask for a mini-stereo jack to RCA male jack, it should look like a Y with the stereo mini female jack on one end and two (one red one black or white) old style speaker jacks. These should take care of the audio situation. It might be better to consider adding a tuner or media center to help direct the sound.
The headphone jacks on laptops do not provide a DC voltage to your speakers only a low powered audio output that will not provide enough power to drive most desktop speakers. If you want to do this you will probably need to get a set of speakers with an external power source. Then it should work fine(providing a headset does work in that jack).
Packard Bell (160248-01) Computer Speakers with a 12
volt power source worked OK,
Tried a 9 volt and it also worked.
This pair of speakers is grey with a
barrel design. The mounting surface placed flat is approximately 10.25
inches by 3.75 inches. Each end has a rainbow design with a depth of 2.75
inches. By placing with the mounting surface flat on your desk gives you an out
of the floor design. The front edge from the desk to the bottom edge is 1.5
from the surface to the top edge with a 3.75 inch. Suggesting you may mount
them under your desk, on the side by your legs or stand them on each side of
I am told they come in white and black also I found them rather large for what I need but your decision is you should be happy before buying a pair.
Looking at the manual
page 3 of the pdf says
Connect the lime green 3.5mm stereo cable (hardwired into the right
satellite) to the lime green input labeled ?FRONT? on your sound card.
So your right speaker should have a cable with a green end that plugs into your standard audio out jack
If you have multiple outputs and don't know which you are set up for, then turn the speakers on and up, put a long song on, and plug that green wire into every jack on the PC!
If you've got no other issues you'll hear something!
