Adding external speakers to 21.5 iMac

Is there a way to connect the external speakers from my old articulating arm G4 iMac to my late 2009 21.5″ iMac?

    If I remember correctly, those speakers had some sort of special connection. I’m not even sure they were real computer speakers — well they were speakers, but “computer speakers” usually implies there is an amplifier in them too. I think the amp may have been in the iMac’s base, and the speakers were just speakers. I’m not 100% on that.
    If they are just speakers with no amp, then there is probably no way to do it. If they do have an amp, then you can probably get your electronics equipment out and modify the end of the cord with a new mini-jack connector, if you know how.
