I came across a nice set of Logitech 2.1 speakers here at work. Compared to the crappy ones I had before, this is a major upgrade for my office. <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /><br />

I'm sure you guys have run into this issue before but the green tipped wire that plugs into your sound card, ipod or whatever, is kinda screwed up. Unless you bend it a certain way you can't hear from both speakers. Has anyone ever successfully cut the wire open and soldered anything together to make it work? I'm just wondering if it's worth taking home to try to fix or if it's a lost cause. Thanks.

LOL That happened to me yesterday on my Dell POS MP3 player. I opened up the player itself and then just bent one of the metal things inside the plug and now it works fine. It was worn out and it got bent back from all the plugging in/out over the years.

You can get DIY 3.5mm audio connectors at RS that you can solder wires on to. I am searching for them on their site right now. All I found were <a href="http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?parentPage=search&pg=2&summary=summary&cp=&productId=2103400&accessories=accessories&kw=3.5mm&kwCatId=2032058&techSpecs=techSpecs&currentTab=summary&custRatings=custRatings&features=features&origkw=3.5mm&support=support&tab=features" target="_blank">these</a>, but you can get plastic, 2-conductor plugs too. They are real easy to use too. <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />
