What you need are some powered computer speakers, they can go as cheap as $30 to $180.

Go to and do a search. Logitech z-2300 is a nice 2.1 system with ample power for your application.

Since you have a pair of speakers I assume you have a receiver to run them? Then buy a cheap ($3-6) "Y-cable" adapter and plug your MP3 player into one of the input jacks.
