Wire in a regular 3.5mm plug onto these speakers

I have a pair of these Apple Pro Speakers that came with my Imac (circa 2001, lamp type imac).

I'd like to convert them into speakers that will actually plug into my computer and/or headphone amp.

Can anyone offer some tips?

I've researched and the extra cables with these are kind of confusing me.

I'd like to be able to (preferably) solder them into a 1/4" jack to plug into my headphone amp but a 1/8"(3.5mm) solution will work too.

These speakers are tricky because they require amplification. There was a 3rd-party device named "iFire" which allowed any computer with a firewire port to drive them, but it's also discontinued and very expensive on the used market. The best path forward without destroying the speakers would be to source a 2.5mm TRRS adapter that the Pro Speakers can plug into, then chop up that adapter and run it through an amplifier and then a standard 3.5mm stereo jack.

The difficulty will be finding a 2.5mm TRRS adapter that fits into the pro speakers, because the outer ring tends to interfere. Something like this may work, but you should measure to see how much clearance you'd have. You could chop the pro speakers, but the preservationist in me advises against it.
