    Seriously, go external amp and spkrs. I've messed about with Mac, and directly plugged speakers, and it seldom works. Mac audio output is very conservative.

    You could find a discarded stereo amp system in your locality for next-to-nothing. Utilise it via an audio-out 3.5 mm cable from your Mac headphones socket to the amp to a pair of spkrs. Have fun!

    I've had Altec Lansing 3 piece set for a few years hooked up to my Imacs and love them.
