Can speakers go into a headphone socket?
They were not designed to be used that way so don't do it! Speakers have a much lower impedance than headphones so your MP3 player, DVD player (or whatever device it is that just has headphone sockets) may be damaged if you plug speakers into it. That's because the speakers will try to take much more power from the headphone socket than it may be capable of giving. The correct way to drive a pair of speakers is to use a booster amplifier which has been designed to plug into the headphone sockets and has its own separate source of power from batteries or a mains adaptor. Or just use one of the many "booster boxes" which come complete with an amplifier, neat mini-speakers and sometimes a mains power supply too.

Is there a way to manually mute certain speakers in a situation with a defective headphone plug in where sound comes out of both headphones and built in laptop speakers?
Nope - if your sound is coming from both the headphones and the built-in speakers, it's your headphone socket in the laptop - not the plug that's at fault ! Basically an audio socket is a switch. While no external speakers (ie headphones) are connected, its internal components direct the sound to the computer's built-in speakers. Inserting a plug into the socket breaks the connection to the internal speaker circuitry, and directs the sound to… Read More

That depends. If they're computer speakers and all your wires are headphone-jack style, then all you do is run the headphone wire from your speakers and plug it into your computer speaker input on the sound card, or a headphone jack. If they're not computer speakers and you want to wire component speakers through your computer, you'll need a receiver to power them, speaker wire to go from your speakers to the receiver, and a… Read More
How do you add a headphone socket to the speaker wires so that the speakers disconnect when the headphones are plugged in?
== Each speaker is driven by a pair of wires coming from the amplifier. One wire is "live" and the other wire is "ground". There are two little contacts in the headphone socket which connect the amplifier's live outputs to the headphones when the headphone jack is inserted. When the headphone jack is removed the contacts reconnect the outputs to the speakers. So it's important to connect the "live" side of each of the speaker… Read More
