My am radio has been converted to am/fm plus jacks for MP3 player or cd player. I want to play them thru my existing speakers. What do I need to buy and where?

Speakers??? what speaker do you NOW have?

Stocker 10 ohm speakers will not work anymore... most likely... you need 4 ohm units

The speakers were furnished by the radio repair to work with the MP3 and CD

You'll have to use those speakers and either replace your exisiting... ir mount these somewhere else.

What do you have now? front and rear only?

You now need 4

You need a connector cable with a 2.5mm stereo plug on each end, most likely.
Is the jack on the back of the AM radio the same size as the one on the MP3 player or cell phone audio output?
If so, that's all it takes to put the audio signal from the player to the AM radio jack.

If you have any kind of a modern cell phone you can just use that as your player.
