Are your external speakers required to be plugged into a power source? Without being required to be plugged in, I think the external speakers can only go as loud as the internal speakers of the computer. It all depends on if there is an amplifier(should need to be plugged in to a power source) or not(doesn't need external power). Assuming that this information is correct, I hope it helps somewhat.
