If your old monitor was a Compaq, it had slots for the speakers to hang on and provided the power for the speakers. The speakers still got their input from a cable that plugged into the computer sound output jack. If those speakers are the style Compaq supplied when I worked at a Compaq service shop, they originally came with metal stands that fit into slots on the back so you could stand them up on their own, and a 12-volt power adapter so you could use them without the monitor. If you don't have those pieces, you can buy a suitable power adapter (12 volts DC at 1 amp) at Radio Shack but the speaker stands are hard to find. You could try eBay, or just make a holder of some kind. (A friend of mine used those little wooden stands you can buy to display plates to hold her speakers when she got a new monitor. They worked out pretty well.)

Or you can replace the speakers. A new set would have everything you need. But those Compaq speakers sounded pretty good, so if they're still working you might want to keep them.

The manual for your speakers can be found at http://www.logitech.com/repository/1411/pdf/27251.1.0.pdf. The Speakers should be conected to your computer as opposed to the moniter. Disconect the small wire from the moniter to the computer and insert the plug from the speakers where it came from.

What is the polarity of the jbl platinum series speakers


Speakers don't really have Polarity ... they have Phase. The audiophile wants the speaker cone acting in the same direction not opposite directions. So, watch your wire - one conductor will have a rib on it, the other smooth. You pick which you want to hook to the red or the + or what the mark is on your devices pick the other conductor for the other side, black or - or what ever matches.

Make sense???
