    Can someone tell me what kind/size plug the MacBook needs for its external speakers? Need to replace speakers. Thanks.

    "Connect external speakers, headphones, or optical digital audio equipment. The headphone / line output jack accommodates optical digital audio output, analog audio output with a 24-bit, 44.1-192 kHz D/A converter, digital audio output up to 24-bit stereo and 44.1-192 kHz sampling rate and supporting encoded digital audio output (AC3 and DTS). For analog headphone / line output a standard audio cable with 3.5mm metal plug should be used. For digital audio, a standard toslink cable with a toslink mini-plug adapter can be used."

    If you take a look at the side of your MacBook, you'll see it's a standard 3.5mm headphone-jack style plug :eek:

    Speaker plug

    Thanks to you both -- the 3.5 is the figure I needed. If you don't know the # they all look pretty much alike.
