    How to add speakers to iMac?
    I have some good speakers left over from my PC and I want to add them to my iMac. They produce better sound than the speakers on the iMac. How do I do that? I have plugged them into the iMac, but nothing happens.

    Go into System Preferences then to the Sound option. See if you speakers are selected as your sound output.

    Do not cross post or double post. Your post was answered once already.

    I did not intentionally "double post" My post did not show up there when I checked. So I thought someone had decided I had tried to post the question in the wrong place, and therefore I tried this one.

    I went to where you all suggested and only "internal speakers, built in" shows. So how do I get my other speakers to show up there?

    Make sure your external speakers are plugged in when you got o Sound Options.

    Did you plug them into the right port? It's possible that you plugged it into the input port.
