1) my logitechs broke
the cable connecting them to the computer, something inside it broke
i know this because before it died it only worked in certain positions and those positions got smaller and smaller until none of them worked

can i fix this easily or is it not worth the hassle

2) what 2.1 speakers can i get to replace these that are good
- my friend is selling his old JBL creature 2s for ~50
- any other options i should consider

poo

    This cable... is it just one of those silly Headphone jack to Headphone jack ones?
    If so, you can get those around $5-$8 at Radio Shack.

    If it works, hey saved yourself $42ish. If not, well you have an Aux input cable now for your MP3 player!

    the thing is, one end of it isnt disconnectable, i'd need to like, cut the wire and solder it together or something
    or pay someone to do that

    It's easy to fix, as long as you can find where the actual break is. Just strip back some of the insulation, twist the wires together and duct/electrical tape them (or if you have wire nuts, do that then duct/electrical tape). Basically you can't break them any worse than they are, so there's no harm in trying to fix them. Since it's only carrying an audio signal, you don't have to worry about being shocked or anything.

    Oh and, unplug them first. Unless you hate your ears.
