On my iMac, when I plug in headphones, the ApplePro speakers go mute. Is there any way to keep both of them on? I'd like to hook some bigger speakers up to the headphone jack, and keep the Apple speakers where they're at, so I can kinda have a ghetto surround sound system

Go to Radio Shack (or wherever) and get a Y-adapter. The headphone jack is designed to kill the speakers.

Hmmmmmm, is there a way to use Soundsticks and the apple pro speakers? The apple pros cut out when soundsticks are plugged in.
