they only work with macs with internal amplifiers. like the iMac or the G4's. you can't use them directly with a G5 or a Powerbook. they sound impressive for their size, but for real base and volume you need to get a bigger system.<br><br>

they are an extra..of course<br>they have a subwoofer as well i beleive that runs them<br><br>Apple Pro Speakers feature powerful Harman Kardon audio technology. They connect to your Power Mac G4 desktop systems using a single cable which provides 20 watts of sound (10 watts/channel) to the speakers with a frequency range of 70 hertz to 20 kilohertz. The Apple Pro Speakers can be used in conjunction with the Harmon Kardon iSub system to enrich your audio experience even more. The analog-based speakers require systems with an Apple speaker minijack.<br><br>

Depends on how much you want to spend and if you want the 3 speaker setup or 5.1 (4 satellites and one woofer).<br><br>Klipsch speakers are awesome..and they are at the Applestore online.<br><br>

You can now also get SoundSticks II which are similar but have a standard <br>3.5 mm Jack and so can be used for any computer.<br><br>"For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for Nature cannot be fooled." - Richard Feynman
