Personally, I would advise that you purchase a separate set of speakers - they don't cost much but it would save on any potential wiring problems!!

oh i see the first question was way to vauge to really answer. it sounds that this is a powered speaker meaning it requires that 12v that you are reading and wont work without it. i am assuming that the cord coming from the speaker is a male end that plugs into female if that is the case it will be difficult to find an adapter to plug into the wall as those have male ends as well. if there is a female plug on the speaker you should be able to find an adapter that plugs into the wall outlet(transformer) just be sure to match up all specs i.e. 12v 1.0a
