I have an iBook OSX 10.4.10 800 MHz PowerPC G4 with 1.12 GB DDR SDRAM.
(1) the max power on the internal speakers is not loud enough, any reasonable
outside noise drowns out the speakers. have all internal adjustments @ maximum. Still the same problem.Every time i find speakers on ebay etc. they have twin jack pugs but iBook is single jack socket. can someone suggest suitable brand speakers with single cable jack?
(2) Can anyone advise if its possible to instal Leopard on my G4 iBook as don't want to purchase if won't work or slows it down with unknown other problems.

Klipsch Promedia 2.1 speakers...hands down the best sound youll get out of a 2.1 set under a few hundred bucks. HUGE amounts of thunderous bass, bright, clear satellites that play LOUD without distorting and their fairly inexpensive. In fact, i think best buy has them on sale right now for like 119 bucks which is a freakin steal for a set of THX certified 2.1's!

I second that! JBL consumer range is overpriced and not that great IMO. But hey, thats just me...
