    This should be simple enough for you to get up and running. The first thing you need to do is find the device to which the in-wall speakers connect. It'll probably be something that also controls the volume, lets you listen to the radio, etc. If the speakers aren't connected to anything it'll still be a simple solution but you'll have to buy something to get the sound to the speakers

    Once you've found that look at the back for a set of female connectors (one red, one white) that are labeled "Aux" or "CD" (these are the two most common, but the label could be anything):

    If you can't find this pair try looking for a hole that looks like a headphone jack, labeled as above.

    Let us know what you find and we'll go from there.
