Help: Connecting in-built laptop speakers (spare) to a headphone jack.
I had an hp laptop which had altec lansing speakers. The laptop broke and it took out the parts within it. The speaker type is exactly this one-
Now I tried to connect them to normal headphone jack but it appears I am doing something wrong. Also, there are 2 pairs (4 wires- red,black and white, green for each speaker) which all go separately for this speaker. But I notice in case of our simple headphones the wires seem to merge together. I hope I am able to convey what I am trying to say. Is there any way I can make these speakers work via a headphone jack? I also have a mic obtained in the same fashion and it also has the same issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
