Apple’s Pro Speakers only connect via the “Apple Pro Speaker Jack,? found only on iMacs and PowerMac G4s. But Griffin Technology’s iFire product allows you to connect your iPod to the Pro Speakers.  Here’s how:

• Plug an iPod into the iFire’s audio mini jack using a miniplug-to-miniplug cable.
• Use a 6-pin to 6-pin Firewire cable, plugged into an Apple Firewire iPod AC Adaptor, to power the iFire’s Firewire port.
• Plug the iFire into the Apple Pro Speakers.  It will provide the power and audio necessary to drive them.

We note that the price of this solution may be more expensive than just buying a new set of iPod-specific speakers. But it’s your choice to make.
