Hi all, apologies if this has been asked before but:

I've been given a set of G4 cube speakers - the spherical Harmon Kardon ones - and wanted to use them with my G3 500 iBook. Im aware that these speakers somehow require the G$ cube to function correctly - my guess is theat the G4 cube must have had high-power usb ports or something, that other models lacked. in which case, it should be a simple matter of wiring an exteral power supply to the usb interface/amp module to provide the power required.

has anyone done this? or have any info that would help me - specs on the G4 cube's usb ports or anything?

surely this is something many people would have wanted to try...
