    Hi all,
    I'm trying to identify what kind of AC/DC wall wart adapter I need,
    based on the female end on a speaker.

    Its measurements are as follows:
    * outside hole diameter ~5.9 mm
    * diameter of center pin receptacle ~2.7 mm
    * diameter of center pin hole ~1.1 mm

    Has anyone seen a wall wart plug with these dimensions? I can't find
    'em on digikey. Thanks for any help with it!

    The plug size is irrelevant I'm afraid. You also need to consider polarity for a
    DC supply.

  3. Buy a universal - it'll have one that's close enough.

    The polarity is identified on the speaker: center pin is positive,
    outer ring is ground. I thought that was standard, actually...
