View Full Version : monitor-powered desktop speakers - alternative power supply?

I have a pair of desktop speakers with a power cable that plugs into the back of the monitor. What's the best way to power the speakers without the monitor?

What kind of connection is it? power? a headphone socket or what?

It's a power cable. 12v DC 1.0amps

just realised the power plug also comes out of the back of the speaker, so i can just get a 1000miliamp 240v adapter right?

If you can find a power supply with the same voltage and connector, aswell as 1000ma or more current, you'll be set.
DSE or wherever should sell some with variable voltage and/or changeable connectors.
