Lost power adapter-help!

I loaned my hk-206 speakers to a friend and when I got them back the power adapter was missing. He says I can just go get one at Radio Shack but I don't know the specs. The only thing I've found says 25 watts.Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Re: lost power adapter-help!

Hi jpatchez

I can give you the answer - I found your question while looking for the same power supply for my HK206 speakers. I then found the power supply in a drawer so I can give you the exact specs you need as follows:

Output Voltage: 12V DC
Output Current: 1000mA
Polarity: Centre pin positive

Good luck!

Hi, jpatchez
Well, you need to see at back, of your old power supply, the 6Watt total power,. but you also check for a good inverter PS, 6W, and check the AMP on your speakers.RadioShack there is a lot power converters, for speakers.
Good Luck

Will Harman Kardon HK 206 speakers work with Windows 8

I just purchased a Dell XPS 8500 with Windows 8 and decided to keep using my old Harmon Kardon HK 206 speakers because I'm quite satisfied with these speakers. When I hooked them to my new PC, Windows 8 recognized them right away. The speakers work great on my new PC. Try going to the Control Panel and see if your speakers were recognized. (On my PC they're referred to as "Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio). That's due to the default drivers in Windows 8. As long as you see speakers in the control panel, you should be OK. In that case you should check your connections. If you don't see speakers in the control panel, go back one screen and select add a device and let Windows 8 scan for any device that it hadn't recognized before.

HK206 speakers - bought a 2nd hand set - power plug doesn't fit

Video upload....

well, the connector that comes from the 2nd speaker goes into the speaker port in the back of the first speaker.

The wierd cord possibly fits into the 12v dc slot in the back.. and the other end would go to a power adapter..

Seems you are missing a power adapter,, like you said earlyer.

Basically you would need a standard power adapter which fits into the speaker.

You could get some universal power adapter for it like


something to this direction

If you want to make sure you get the right kind of power apdater
Try contacting jbl directly

I was looking around ebay, found this

Theres the power adapter in the middle, I think the odd cord goes to the back of the first speaker and the other end would go to a power adapter.. try contacting jbl they should be able to get you what you need.

Seems you have everything else you need except for the power adapter.

have you plugged anything else in to make sure the usb port is working? does the computer recognize the usb speakers when you plug the usb plug into the computer? do the speakers work on another computer? if you wiggle the usb wires around does it make a sound through the speakers? eliminate these questions so that we can move on to isolating the issue.
