You really need to post more information, make and model of hardware, operating system, etc – Tog Feb 25 '11 at 8:18
What do you mean by buffer? Subwoofer? Typically 2.1 means "two satellite speakers and one subwoofer" – Olli Feb 25 '11 at 8:26
I edited my post please help me out in this .. – FrozenKing Feb 25 '11 at 21:05

assuming that this image is the same as the back of your particular speaker system it should be possible to get your own speakers and connect them to the sub-woofer (remove any end plugs if necessary, if you aren't worried about not being able to return them later).

Altec Lansing 121i

Hey just tell me which type of connector I should use which is having input as wire and output as pin – FrozenKing Jun 1 '11 at 11:03
@FrozenKing i don't know of a specific connector like that. basically it would just be length of speaker wire that has a male plug soldered on to one end – Xantec Jun 1 '11 at 20:35
