    It should automatically switch over to headphones when it detects them. Is the audio on both the speakers and iPad turned up?

    Does your iPad work with just headphones plugged in?

    Are the speakers self powered?, otherwise the iPad does not have the power to drive the speakers. You need an amp.

    It does seem so.


    Input and output


    Dock connector port
    3.5-mm stereo headphone jack​
    Built-in speaker
    Microphone
    Micro-SIM card tray (Wi-Fi + 3G model only)

    from the official source about the technical specifications of the iPad, nicely formatted and publicly offered by the inventor of the iPad




    Even though some might get annoyed of reading this, the thread title guy strikes again:

    A more descriptive and precise thread title will help cater to the right audience and get you more responses.
    To edit your thread title, just click on the [​IMG] button on the bottom right of your original post and then click the "Go Advanced" button below your message.

    Have you also taken a look at MRoogle, since that question may have been asked several times?



    from the forum rules:

    Minor Problems

    3. Thread titles.

    Use thread titles that indicate the subject of the thread, not generic titles such as "Need advice/help". Moderators may change thread titles that have no specifics, usually by adding something more specific in parentheses.

    Answer

    You need to be more descriptive in your thread title. Anything less, you'll get very few replies and the replies you do get will be of the sarcastic variety.

    That being said, can you be more specific? Are you talking about simply connecting speakers via the 3.5 mm headphone jack or thru a dock connector?

    You mentioned an adapter, can you explain what kind of plug the speakers have

    What specifically have you connected to the headphone jack and two what is that cable connected on the other end?
    Is the receiver switched on?

    I have a set of speakers that go to a clock radio I have plugged them into my iPhone for my iTunes and they work. The plug from the speakers is to small for the iPad so I bought an adaptor to plug into the iPad then the speaker cable. I don't get any sound from the speakers when playing iTunes on the iPad.

    Something is weird here. If you plugged those speakers into the iPhone, then the same plug should work for the iPad, as the headphone jack on the iPhone and the iPad are the same size.

    OP, can you tell us the model of the speaker and the name of the adapter?

    If not, we just guess around and around and we will (including yourself) get frustrated about the non-existent development of the solution of your problem and your inability to tell us some specifics, as your setup seems kinda strange, especially the adapter part.
