    Specs:
    20" iMac 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo - eMac 1.42 GHz (RIP) - iMac G3 400 MHz - iPad 2 16GB
    Twelve South BassJump portable subwoofer for MacBook Pro Review - Speakers & Speaker Systems - CNET Reviews

    I always thought this was a pretty neat little solution that works alongside the internal speakers on an iMac. It's designed to be a portable sub for Mac laptops, but it's iMac compatible as well. JBL Creatures and Harmon Kardon Sound Sticks are cool too.

    They are iMac compatible (per Amazon.com user reveiws and the company website). I haven't used one (I have JBL Creature II's), but check out the reviews on Amazon.com. Very slick solution in my opinion.

    The Creature II's are nice, they lack some midrange though. The connect with a standard 1/8th inch audio jack.

    speakers for iMac
    Harman & Kardon soundsticks great for the price plus great to look at or if you can stretch to it Bose 5 way (fantastic sound bland styling )plus the Bose are USB powered . The Sound sticks are normal 3.5 jack so you can use them for airtunes through an Airport Express.
