    Ok, so for the past few years I've been really wanting to get a Power Mac G4 just to really pay with and what not. I've decided that I should focus on other priorities in life but, right before that, I purchased a set of Apple Pro Speakers on eBay. They're claimed to be brand new and still has the covers on the speakers.

    I'd like to sell them but I want to make sure they work before doing so. I realize they'll only work with certain PPCs but is there any way of just making sure they'll work?

    Thanks, I forgot that the plug is a little smaller than normal. I haven't opened the box yet, but I'm assuming it's not filled with rocks or anything like that.

    I thought I was getting it for a pretty good deal as the price was about 1/3 at what they were last time I looked into them. I failed to realize last time was over a year ago.

    Or would I maybe be better off keeping them. I didn't pay much (don't really want to say in case I got lucky and end up reselling them). And one day I'd really like to have a G4 QS or MDD. At least I'd have this part covered.

    Those dang iFire's always end up going for well over $100. If you want a set of those Apple Pro Speakers to use with a non-Pro Speaker jack equipped Mac, look for a set of Cube speakers. They work just as well. But for testing a set of Pro Speakers, only way to test them is to try them with a compatible Mac (or find a cheap iFire).

    Forgot about this. Ha.

    I'm not really wanting to use them with current hardware. I bought them then realized I don't need them, so I want to sell them.

    I just want to make sure they work. Maybe I'll try to meet up with someone around the area to test them out. They're supposed to be NIB, but I just want to make sure before I put them back up on eBay or something.

    Just an update, I think I'm going to keep them. They look great, and one day maybe I'll get a G4.

    I checked prices on eBay. They're selling for $10, if even that. At that low a price I'd probably lose money on the shipping. I'm bad at estimating that stuff.
