The speakers are salvaged from an old Toshiba mini nb520 laptop. How could I go forward to use these speakers? Will I have to write my own drivers? Will it be worth the work? What electronic components will I have to buy?

Update: They are 2 watt speakers.

  • Good news: no writing of a driver required, just use ALSA. As for the hardware you could connect the speakers to the 3.5 mm audio out jack (pin out) but it might (or might not) be of insufficient volume. In that case you'll need an amplifier as the linked dupe suggests. – Ghanima Mar 2 '19 at 18:34
  • Ordered two pam8403 amplifiers for less than a dollar. Although they are 3W and not 2W as my speakers are, will this pose an issue? – Maiki Mar 2 '19 at 19:08
  • Not a problem, just don't turn it up to eleven. – Ghanima Mar 2 '19 at 19:12
