I have a pair of older harman KARDON HK-195 computer speakers that i want to use but i lost the power supply. It states on the back of the speaker to where u plug it in as AC 15V 1.1 and i was wondering what type of power supply i could use with it to make it work. Anyone know what is compatible?

thx

You need to look for the symbols for AC or DC, the voltage rating and the current rating.  Normally the input doesn't matter but the output does.

Try searching ebay for "Harman Kardon H-195 computer speakers power supply" and check if you see anything that looks like the power supply that you lost.

No, that is a switched mode PSU with 15V DC output, but no current rating stated.

As AI1000 comments, a Google search will bring up power supplies of the type you need, e.g.

http://www.amazon.com/Harman-Kardon-Adapter-Supply-1100mA/dp/B00F9W9QX6

As Platypus said you will be better looking for the correct power supply since not only will it have the correct voltage and amperage rating it will also have the correct sized plug to go into your speakers. If the plug is not the correct size it will either not fit or give a bad or no contact.

 

The output rating for this supply is 15V at 1.1A .  Any power supply with a 15V DC and 1.1 to 1.5A output rating will work but you may well need to change the plug on the end of the lead. If you do this you need to be careful about the polarity of the plug - normally the inner core is +V and the outer 0V - and also about your insulation of the wires. You do NOT want a short circuit !  I would only suggest doing this if you are confident of your soldering skills.
