My guess is you have coax speaker cable -- if so, you can use standard audio cables with RCA plugs -- Radio Shack would have them -- match plugs so you can chain the cablestogether.
If you have twin-axial speaker cable, best approach is to just buy speaker wire of the correct length... or if there are plugs on the current speaker wires, you can splice in enough new speaker wire to reach the new location for the speakers.
Coax looks like a single cable, but has one conduction inside the other.
Twin-axial has two obvious conductors, side-by-side.
Buy a power adapter from radio shack or similar place. You need a 1000mA 12 volt dapter. Just make sure it is rated @ or above 1000mA to avoid the adapter heating up and possibly burning. The whole setup is rated @ 850mA wich 1A(1000mA) should handle with enough head room. But it might run you about $15-20. I would just buy a cheap radio with rca inputs/aux input and use that. I got one from Walmart for around $40 and it plays CD's & AM/FM.
Well I am not sure where exactly you want them to work but there are a few options that you can concider. First off the sell power inverters that allow you to plug into the cigarette lighter in your car and you are able to plug things into your car that normally only work in the house.. The main point of my answer is that they are powerd speaker that have to be plugged into an outlet to work, my best suggestion to you would be to take them speakers back and buy a set that do not require to be plugged in. If your intention is to use them on a laptop the make speakers that plug in usb and use the small current that runs through the usb cable to power the speakers, but that will cut into your laptop battery life. If you go to a computer store and I am not talking about Best Buy I mean a real computer store they will have knodgeable staff that will be able to show you the best solution to your problem.
I hope this helps.
If you set the volume up, and there is a problem with audio, I recomend,
1) reconnect your speakers and press well the conector, (green)
2) see if sound came from output connector using a headset.
3) buy new speakers.
depending on the model of your current spk. check one from creative, they have some good Spk. that work fine for years.
