I want to get my MP3 player running through my CD player's speakers. Can anyone help?

Are you talking about a "boom box" type cd player? If so, your stereo needs to have some type of aux input. You can use the headphone jack of the mp3 player as an output but keep the volume low. Inputs are normally line level so they don't need a lot of power sent to them to amplify the music. Infact, sending too much of a signal into an input can damage a stereo. try to balance it so the volume you here from a cd and the mp3 player are the same. .1 watt is enough for the line level input.

Actually the speakers are connected to the stereo through small doubled up wires. Like a headhpone's. When I take them out of the stereo, I have two wires exposed out of the rubber coat. Would I just cut up some headphones and connect the wires, or is it more complicated?

I think I follow what you are doing. The problem is that the speakers will probably need a lot more power than your headphone jack puts out. You can get amplified speakers for computers that have batteries in them and they will already have a headphone type (2.5mm) jack on them.

But in theory, yes, you can put a 2.5mm stereo plug on your speaker and plug it into a headphone jack.
