Default Dell plasma speakers

I found a broken Dell Plasma screen on the street the other day & scavanged from it its speakers & power supply. It was stereo, there are 4 little speakers in each plastic housing but one is larger than the other because it apparently contains a 15 watt chip amp. The power supply is LiteON. However, I am not able to power this up, probably because I can't find the on switch for the supply (there are quite a few pins out).
Anyway, they contain an oval woofer about 2x3 in., two identical mids that look like a 1 in HiVi, and a seperate tweeter. I need to find a suitable star bit to open these. I'm sure I'll find a use for them.

Man, what a misleading post title. I suppose I couldn't possibly have thought that the exotic plasma transducer had made it to mass-market mail order.

Dave, You Rock! hehe

Marvin, perhaps you can power the thing up with just a small bench supply if you can get your hands on one. Presumably the lite on supply powers more than just the stereo hardware? Is it a line operated switcher? If so you should proceed very cautiously as tinkering with it could be hazardous.. (High voltage)
